“It’s almost hilarious,” Fox contributor Leo Terrell said in reaction to reports that the Biden Administration is screening questions that members of the press are prepared to ask at White House briefings.
As reported by The Daily Beast: “According to three sources with knowledge of the matter, as well as written communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the new president’s communications staff have already on occasion probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when called upon during briefings.”
In response, Mr. Terrell told Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday: “It’s limited press. It’s limited to what they want to push across America.”
“Let’s be very clear. The press treated Donald Trump like he had some type of plague. They do not believe in the First Amendment. They do not believe in freedom of the press,” he added.
“Since his inauguration — really since last year — Joe Biden has not been asked a tough question. Why? Because the press dislike Donald Trump,” Leo continued. “Ever since [Biden] has been president, the press has basically given him lollipops, softball, ice cream questions. The audacity for [the Biden Administration] to ask for questions in advance is because they want to script their message to America.”
“Donald Trump had to answer questions on the spot without any type of notification, and he did an outstanding job,” Mr. Terrell concluded. Video Below
