Donald Trump slams US media for throwing “softball” questions at Biden

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday night blasted what he called “softball” questions asked by reporters during President Joe Biden’s first press conference earlier in the day.

Speaking to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Trump said Biden’s presser was like a “different world” compared to when he faced questions from the Washington press corp.

“It was like softballs, like you’re throwing softballs and it’s just a different world,” the former president said.

“Nobody’s seen anything like it. It’s very sad to watch actually, they’re feeding him questions, they’re easy questions,” Trump said.


The press pool at Thursday’s briefing was limited to 25 reporters and Biden only took questions from a list of journalists whose names and outlets he read from a cue card.

In Thursday’s press conference, Biden at times lost his train of thought, forgetting questions and pausing for extended periods of time.

But Trump didn’t directly attack Biden’s handling of the briefing, instead criticized questions posed by members of the Washington media.

“They were strange questions and they were asked in a very interesting way,” Trump said.
