As Twitchy reported Wednesday night, Fox News’ Bret Baier seemed to think President Biden was returning home to Delaware on Thursday, and FAA advisories seemed to confirm that report. We were told by an AP reporter that Biden had a “non-public day” Thursday but was busy with Afghanistan, COVID, and his Build Back Better agenda.
We’ve since learned that the White House called a travel photo lid Thursday afternoon.
White House called travel photo lid at 3:36pm, per pooler @W7VOA. WH provided a readout of Pres. Biden's activities but we did not hear from him or any officials today.

It’s possible the lid could be lifted; after all, the lid on Biden called early Tuesday was lifted so that reporters could get video of Biden flying back into D.C. from Camp David at 8:40 p.m. (and promptly going to bed, we presume).
Been a long week for Joe. He had two 20-minute speeches and an interview with a former Democratic operative. Time to take the Acela back to Wilmington and relax for four or five days.

Is Psaki still MIA?

She was back Monday, but there was no press briefing Thursday.

Is he hoping to just avoid the press for 3 more years?

It’s not like there are enormously consequential events occurring right now, give the man a break.

Weird how the people who lost their minds over DJT golfing for 5hrs have no problem with this.

CNN’s Jim Acosta was informing us of Donald Trump’s golf outings as recently as February, a month into Biden’s term.
I think we get about three solid hours of work a week out of this guy…..

Was there something going on Thursday afternoon that the White House didn’t want to be photographed?

Seriously, what’s the big secret here? If the Bidens are going to Delaware, just say so.
