“No need to drool all over him!” Meghan McCain blasts mainstream media for fawning backlash at Biden’s press conference – alleging journalists breached duty by not asking him tough questions

  • Biden held his first press conference on Thursday, after more than two months in office
  • The media’s response to the event was overwhelmingly positive, despite the fact that Biden came up with prepared notes and made several false statements
  • Conservative expert Meghan McCain claimed the media would never have treated Presidents Trump or Obama so lightly
  • The View co-host has been a family friend of Biden for a long time, but says she has separated her personal feelings from her job as an expert to invite him.

Meghan McCain has condemned the mainstream media for their obnoxious reaction to Joe Biden’s first press conference, saying the new president is being treated much more lightly than his predecessor, Donald Trump.

Biden held his first press conference on Thursday – more than two months after his presidency – where he answered questions about immigration, China and gun control.

But while Biden made a series of factually inaccurate statements and was seen as referring to prepared notes, the response from the media has been overwhelmingly positive.

Speaking on The View Friday, McCain said the response was evidence of media bias, claiming that Biden only answered a series of softball questions.

“ We are still in a pandemic, there are still some crises, and I don’t think he has answered nearly enough questions that I would have liked to see, for example, and I think the coverage has been really troubling, ” said the Conservative co host.

‘I watched some of the shows this morning – no need to drool Joe Biden all over right now. He is still the president of the United States. And I think our role in fourth state is to put his feet up to the fire and ask serious questions and ‘give him time, let him be president’, yes, but we didn’t give this [leeway] to President Obama or to President Trump. ‘

McCain also added that Biden was not answering questions from journalists who might be willing to ask him more difficult questions.

“He didn’t answer media queries that disagreed with him,” McCain explained.

“Peter Doocy, no call was made, Fox News was not called, which I think yesterday was a huge mistake for President Biden.”

She also stated that the press deliberately ignored Biden’s recent stumbling block on the steps of Air Force One, reporting that a gun registered on Hunter Biden was disposed of in a trash can at a Delaware supermarket in 2018.

If President Trump had fallen Air Force One or if his son was involved in some very serious reports about the Secret Service and a gun, I think we would [discussion] today, ”McCain stated, trying to highlight the perceived double standard.

“I think it’s up to us and the press not to be harmful in the way we cover President Biden.”

The now-president famously consoled McCain in The View after her father’s cancer diagnosis in 2017.

“I love President Biden as a person. I think he is a really decent person, and a great family man, and I have great love and admiration for him on a personal level, ”McCain clarified on Friday.

But I believe our role in Fourth State as journalists and commentators is to keep the president and the press down to earth and I need to separate my emotions from shouting balls and strikes about this.
