President Biden finally held a press conference Thursday, and the reviews from the press are in: the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin says Biden was “about a mile over the low bar” that had been set for him, and NBC News’ Jonathan Allen said that Biden was “knocking this out of the park so far” — 12 minutes after tweeting, “Biden sounding and looking tired partway through” (and now he’s called a lid).
Rubin praised Biden for his “remarkably long, detailed, fact-filled” answers, like this one:
Oh My Goodness. This is so embarrassing. I swear this is unedited. pic.twitter.com/Sad3mBOkXc

Shortly after that he stares off into space for what felt like an eternity… Highly uncomfortable to watch ?

Is this real? Jesus.

Is this real? From today’s briefing? ???

Oh, it’s real. And it has Dave Rubin asking if this is the biggest political scandal in decades. We can’t imagine what he’s talking about.
Can we call this the biggest political scandal in decades yet or nah? https://t.co/zjfbwlrA2m

After watching that, I can't tell which one of us had a stroke.

Because he received the most votes ever.
Do you think he even knows his own name at this point? This is legitimately scary that he’s in a position with that much power.

This made me really sick ?

He’s not even going to last until the end of summer.

I really don’t like the mockery of him or anyone quite frankly, but this makes me just sad..
— Djingis666 (@djingis666) March 25, 2021
It’s not even funny anymore.

Is it worse than we thought?
— Michael Nordman (@nordm) March 25, 2021
This is actually concerning
— Boy Wonder (@medaviddavid) March 25, 2021
This is scary. And honestly really sad.
— Sterling5 ?? (@sterlings5) March 25, 2021
This is the first time I’ve felt sorry for him. He is evidently not well.
— zoë dolan (@zo_dolan) March 25, 2021
Dude is running out of steam. You can hear him getting winded.
— Nick (@SoccerLoverP21) March 25, 2021
I'm not a fan of him on any level. But frankly, this is sad and I'm embarrassed on his behalf.
— Troll_You_Daily (@TrollYouDaily1) March 25, 2021
Love how Biden proudly emphasized he knows how to get things done, but then can’t finish his sentence or train of thought.
— Scott Holloway (@8Hammerhead8) March 25, 2021
Embarrassing. We have all been taken advantage of.??? God help us. People better prepare for hard times, your resolve and resilience are soon to be tested.
— Jonathan C. White (@jwhitey02) March 25, 2021
I’m so embarrassed for him, for his family and for our country. Shame on the people using him as a tool.
— greylady (@greyladybg) March 25, 2021
Embarrassing. This is the guy all our enemies wanted to become president, not Trump! Pretty soon our military is going to be playing flag football while our enemies are honing their fighting skills. Flat out embarrassing.

I'm not sure it qualifies as a scandal but it's the biggest something.
— spd98 (@spd98) March 25, 2021
Yep. He got 80+ million votes. ?♂️
— Joe Rese (@JoeyRese28) March 25, 2021
To be honest I’m kind of speechless. If this was in a movie it would break your suspension of disbelief.
— James Hastings-Trew (@JamesHT) March 25, 2021
A lot of people are suspending their disbelief in trying to praise this trainwreck.
