Fact-Checking Biden’s Disastrous First Press Conference


On Thursday, after going his first two months in office without holding a press conference — the longest streak in modern U.S. history — Joe Biden finally answered questions from reporters in the White House. Biden first delivered a short speech celebrating his administration’s achievements regarding COVID-19, before calling on pre-selected members of the press to field various questions. Both his speech and answers to questions from journalists were replete with falsehoods. Let’s fact-check the president’s first press conference since his inauguration on January 20. Early in his speech, Biden boasted that his administration had beaten his goal of administering 100 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in the first 100 days of his presidency, claiming that this was achieved on day 58.
