If the point of this news conference was confidence, it might have missed by a mile. President Joe Biden’s first foray into the allegedly unscripted world of the presidential news conference – a medium his predecessor handled with ease – showed some serious drawbacks in the chief executive’s abilities. And lapsing into nonsense at one point only made those doubts all the worse. There’s no other way to put it than that’s simply embarrassing. It’s embarrassing for Biden. It’s embarrassing for Biden’s family. And it’s embarrassing, most of all, for the country that has a clearly declining septuagenarian as its leader. And the country noticed.
