As Kamala Harris’ administration continues to see a record number of top aides and staffers leave their roles in her office for better opportunities, President Joe Biden is reportedly under fire for his lack of news conferences and interviews when compared to his past predecessors.

According to The Post, Biden has given fewer news conferences compared to his past five predecessors during their first year as president. He has also reportedly given less interviews when compared to his past six predecessors during their first year.

So far, Biden has reportedly only given 9 press conferences so far as president – compared to former President Donald Trump’s 22 press conferences in his first year as president, Barack Obama’s 27, George W. Bush’s 19, Bill Clinton’s 38, and George H. W. Bush’s 31.

Although Biden has given fewer press conferences and interviews, he has reportedly given more informal Q&As to the press and media compared to his immediate predecessors – all except Clinton, who reportedly gave 245 informal Q&As compared to Biden’s 216.

Still, President Biden is being scrutinized for his high number of informal Q&As because even though he takes a high number of questions, some believe he does not answer the questions thoroughly enough.

“While President Biden has taken questions more often at his events than his predecessors, he spends less time doing so,” political analyst Martha Joynt Kumar said on Sunday. “He provides short answers with few follow-ups when he takes questions at the end of a previously scheduled speech.”​

But while Biden is in the hot seat for his lack of press conferences and interviews, his vice president is also under fire for the number of top aides and staffers that have been leaving her administration at what seems like every turn.

As Radar previously reported, after Harris’ deputy director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs Vincent Evans announced his departure last week, it was revealed by another staffer that Harris is an alleged “bully” and not “willing to do the prep and the work” that being VP entails.

“With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence,” an unnamed staffer recently spilled. “So, you're constantly sort of propping up a bully and it's not really clear why.”
