After President Biden's press conference Thursday evening following the release of the Hur report that described how Biden had kept classified documents in his garage (and elsewhere) but wouldn't be prosecuted because of his diminished mental capacity, many Dems and select media types rushed to his defense.
Biden's press conference was a disaster, and Paul Begala was one of the rare Democrats who was willing to admit it:

"I slept like a baby last night. I woke up every 2 hours & wet the bed. This is terrible for Democrats..."
Begala then takes a shot at Biden for not knowing when he was vice president.pic.twitter.com/ttKJfVuSgo
And guess what -- the Biden White House seems to agree with Begala. Team Biden certainly wouldn't mind if nobody else watched that press conference and clips from it certainly won't be appearing in any pro-Biden ads this election season.
The White House has UNLISTED President Biden's presser from last night on Youtube. The only way to find it now is to have the direct link.— Lorraine Yuriar (@thekytikat) February 10, 2024
Here is the Video they don't want you to see --- https://t.co/fPlJ2PcLwo @DLoesch @elonmusk @ChrisLoesch @TwitchyTeam pic.twitter.com/h8WinukOKN
Well, would you look at that -- they're censoring themselves for a change!
See, they think it went really well. https://t.co/9qzTMVyNo2— John Ekdahl (@JohnEkdahl) February 10, 2024

Indicator number two that the White House knows that the presser was nothing short of a dumpster fire:

In fairness, it looks like the White House keeps the comments off for most of their YouTube videos, and it's hard to blame them considering how things are going.This is the 12 minutes worth of Biden making points that are the opposite of what was intended:
This wouldn't be the White House's first time working to salvage a video:
