President Joe Biden is awful quiet for newly elected president.
He's only held one press conference so far.
One Republican Senator is starting to wonder about Biden's absence from the public sphere. Texas Senator John Cornyn thinks there must be a reason the White House is keeping Biden hidden.
Cornyn writing on Twitter, 'The president is not doing cable news interviews. Tweets from his account are limited and, when they come, unimaginably conventional. The public comments are largely scripted. Biden has opted for fewer sit down interviews with mainstream outlets and reporters.'
He added, 'invites the question: is he really in charge?'
The longer the Biden Administration continues this, 'less is more' strategy the more people are going to wonder what exactly is going behind the scenes.
Especially when Biden always appears in front of the cameras with a teleprompter or a binder to refer to.
At the end of a meeting Monday, Biden was asked about the Minneapolis police shooting of Duane Wright. Biden doesn't answer the question, nor does he make a statement. Instead, the president says he will get back in front of the cameras again in a few moments.
Why? The White House doesn't want Biden speaking off the cuff. Not on a sensitive issue like a police officer shooting in a city that has dealt with high-profile police killings of George Floyd and Philando Castile. Watch.
There's no question those around Biden are keeping him 'protected.'
