Odds are pretty good that you saw at least a clip of Jonathan Swan’s now-infamous interview with Donald Trump. Apparently quite a few people saw it.
In fact, it got so much attention that Axios CEO and co-founder Jim VandHei wants to see if lightning can strike twice:
🚨 🚨 More than 100 million people viewed part or all of the “Axios on HBO” interview between @realdonaldtrump and @jonathanvswan @axios on all platforms. We offer this same interview opportunity to @joebiden and hope he accepts.

As if Joe Biden would pass up an opportunity like that!

Hey, why are you laughing? What’s so funny?
Spoiler: Joe Biden will not be accepting. https://t.co/D7cOymEW68

He won't. His handlers won't allow it

Not unless he gets all the questions beforehand and is allowed to read his team’s answers off of a card or something.
But all is not lost … America could still be treated to an authentic Biden interview:
