Conway Says Biden Revealed Why They Do Not Let Him 'Do These Press Conferences'
Former counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway says President Joe Biden “reinforced why he’s an unpopular president” during his press conference.
During an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” the host asked Conway for her reaction to Biden’s Wednesday night press conference.
“Now you know why they don’t let Biden do these press conferences. He didn’t do well. He’s arguing with reporters. He’s arguing about his polling numbers, which are very clear,” Conway said.
She continued, “We want the country to be prosperous and successful and intact and secure, and people just don’t feel that.”
Conway suggested for the duration of the press conference Biden “reinforced why he’s an unpopular president.”
She added, “After one year, [his approval rating] is the lowest on record. Yes, lower than Donald Trump’s, who did not have the mainstream media pushing for him, covering for him, and, of course, voting for him.”
Conway claimed a number of Americans believe Biden is “incompetent,” explaining, “I think the incompetence measure is the most durable one because it is a reflection on the entire Democratic Party.”
“Until we change the policies and until we change the president, this country is not going to get back on the track where they were. They miss the policies, they miss that ‘America First’ agenda and accomplishments … because people felt more secure, more prosperous, and that they had more opportunity. They had more faith in the office of the presidency,” Conway said.
Watch her comments below:
According to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, 43% say they somewhat or strongly approve of Biden’s job performance while 56% say they somewhat or strongly disapprove of Biden’s job performance, as The Hill reports.
During his press conference, Biden was pressed on inflation, the rise in COVID-19 cases, and other issues.
He defended his time in office, saying, “I didn’t over-promise, but I think if you take a look at what we’ve been able to do, you have to acknowledge we made enormous progress.”
