During Thursday’s White House Press Conference, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: “if gun violence is such an emergency, why is Biden off to the beach?”
Doocy pointed out that Biden has called on Congress to act on gun violence right away, and he is expected to repeat that call in an address scheduled for Thursday evening [which he did] — right before he leaves the White House for a weekend at the beach.”
“If the president thinks that Congress must act immediately to end this epidemic of gun violence, is he going to bring any of the key players from Capitol Hill to the beach with him tonight?” Doocy asked.
But as usual, the White House continues to run defense for Joe Biden suggesting that “immediate action” isn’t really Joe’s thing to handle and that the responsibility falls to Congress.
