If You Have A Long Press Conference Do What I Do

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow: Biden used long press conference to show Putin he has ‘stamina’

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said President Biden’s nearly two-hour long press conference on Wednesday was a show of “stamina” towards Russian President Vladamir Putin.

“I mean, it’s long for a presidential press conference. It’s long specifically for him. He hasn’t done nearly this long,” Maddow said. 

Biden’s rare presser marked nearly one year since he took office. 

Maddow went on to say that with all the Russia-talk she wondered whether Biden decided to show up Putin by answering questions for nearly two hours. 

“With all the talk about Putin and him talking about … the question of whether Putin is going to invade Ukraine might … be decided by which side of the bed Putin wakes up on – and all this stuff about trying to get Putin’s head. One part of me wondered if he was trying to sort of ape Putin’s annual press conference thing where he does these sort of feats of strength. He does these feats of stamina showing how long that he can continue to go taking these questions. So that was part of it,” Maddow said.
