I would refrain from calling today’s scheduled first presidential news conference in the more than 2 months since Joe Biden took office as “must see tv” but I think there will be more interest in what the new president has to say, and how he says it, than there has been recently. Will it be as contentious as those conducted during the Donald Trump Presidency? Will there be tough questions from media staffers, or the kinds of softballs that candidate Biden responded to during his successful White House Campaign? The president will no doubt be as prepared as he can be to answer questions about the pandemic, the recent surge in unaccompanied immigrants at our southern border, North Korean saber rattling and his verbal feud with the leaders of Russia and China, but his detractors will be looking for any signs they can point to that the president’s mental state is in decline. Leaders of foreign governments, those who are our friends and our foes, will be watching and listening carefully too. That’s the way I see it.
