Biden to the press: “I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon, so I love you all, but I’d like to ask you to leave.”
CNN’s John King: “This is news to us”
Biden will not be holding a news conference Friday afternoon, despite telling reporters he would be “holding a major press conference this afternoon.”
A White House spokesperson told CNN that Biden was “referring to a previously announced interview.”
MSNBC previously announced that Stephanie Ruhle will air a Biden interview at 10 p.m.
As reporters were being asked to leave a pool spray in the Roosevelt Room, Biden told them, “We’ve got a lot of work to do and I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon, but I love y’all but I’d like to ask you to leave so we can get down to business.”
President Biden told the press corps today he would be holding a “major” press conference later in the day …turns out his idea of a press conference is a taped softball interview on MSNBC with left-wing propagandist Stephanie Ruhle

This morning Biden promised to do a press conference later today but now the White House says it’s a no-go. Apparently the printer broke and they can’t make his cheat sheet.
