Biden unofficially drops by with reporters to complain about coverage

President Joe Biden burst into the press booth during an Air Force One flight Wednesday afternoon, surprising reporters with an off-the-record appearance.

But the president spent most of his time complaining about their negative coverage of his administration, according to Politico’s West Wing Playbook, citing “several people familiar” with the meeting.

Biden spoke to reporters as he traveled to California for the Summit of the Americas, even as some of the leaders of major Latin American countries declined to attend.

The establishment media has grown more skeptical of Biden’s efforts to help curb inflation, lower gas prices and address the formula shortage that has plagued his administration.

The president and his team have spent the week boasting about the strength of the “big” economy even as polls for Biden continue to slide.

On Wednesday, Biden hit an all-time low in RealClearPolitics’ polling average, with an approval rating of just 39.7.

Desperate for any chance of distracting the president, White House staff brought in actor Matthew McConaughey on Tuesday to launch another gun control plea after the president’s speech last week on the question fell flat.

Biden, who has refused to sit down for an interview with reporters for more than 100 days, will try to solicit sympathy from ABC comedian/activist Jimmy Kimmel as he plans to tape an episode to air late Wednesday. evening.
