In the wake of his MSNBC show “Morning Joe” on Friday, presenter Joe Scarborough raved about President Joe Biden’s first press conference the previous day, while busting the way the conservative media reacted to it.
Scarborough speaks about Biden’s press conference
Scarborough claimed that Biden was “far more articulate than Donald Trump” and that the former president “knew nothing about problems” and “did not want to know about problems”.
“You know, you’d hope if you kept telling a group of people, ‘Don’t put your hand on the stove,’ they’d learn. I said it before the debate: “Don’t put your hand on the stove. It will burn. ‘And they say: “Ouch!” Then they slide it back up. “Ouch!” Really just wondering how fat these people are? “Said Scarborough.
“How bad are they when it comes to figuring out how politics work and what their expectations are? Mika, they say this guy can’t walk, he can’t talk, he can’t think, he’s a drooler, ”he added. “And then he goes out and gives a press conference where he’s much more precise than Donald Trump ever was because Donald Trump, he didn’t know anything about problems, he didn’t want to know anything about problems. Nobody could ever inform the guy. “

“Joe Biden is going out, all of these people have lowered expectations and are playing right into his hand. They play into his hand every time, ”Scarborough continued. “And you’re just wondering how stupid they’ll continue to be if they play into his hand. If I were a Republican lawmaker I would be so mad at the idiocy of these people. You’re only helping Biden. “
“[T]His president has a briefing book in which he actually prepares for a press conference so that he can inform the press, ”said co-moderator Mika Brzezinski. At this point Scarborough interjected, “And knows what he’s talking about, unlike the last man. ”
Trump Shreds Biden
This came after Trump spoke out in his press conference in favor of asking the media to ask Biden “softball questions”.

“They were strange questions that were asked in very interesting ways. It was like playing softballs, like throwing softballs up. And it’s just another world, nobody has seen anything like it, “Trump told Laura Ingraham, presenter of Fox News. “It’s really very sad to see. They feed him questions, they are simple questions. “
Trump didn’t stop, and went on to say that Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy was not asked to ask a question during the press press. He remarked, “I noticed that Peter Doocy couldn’t ask a question today.”
“And there might be no tough questions and they are ready to rip the microphone off if someone gets a little irritated,” Trump continued. “Look, the whole thing is ridiculous. You know and so do I. “
