The President is holding a press conference and he’s giving smart and knowledgeable and honest answers and he’s not even hurling insults at the people asking the questions. This is so weird.
In all seriousness, today’s press conference is everything you’d hope for from President Biden. He expressed an ongoing desire to do things in a bipartisan fashion if the Republicans are willing to get on board, while also stressing that he won’t hesitate to do it without them if they don’t swiftly get on board with any given initiative. He rolled out an actual “Buy American” platform. He even stated a statistic and then urged others to correct him if he’d gotten it wrong. Can you imagine the last guy ever doing that?
– Tweet of the day from Rob Reiner: “When Donald Trump is tried for inciting a deadly Insurrection to overthrow the US Government, Republican Senators won’t care about facts or truth. They will be making a political calculation. Do I support or abandon Trump? A little reminder: ‘Everything Trump touches dies.'”
