Joe Concha was not impressed with President Biden’s first press conference as POTUS.
“This was a disgrace for most of the press corps and for the president,” Concha said. “He said some outrageous things that demanded to be pressed on and of course no one in the room can decide to do it!”
Stand back! @joeconchaTV on Biden and his ten questioners:

In a Op-Ed for “The Hill” Joe Concha disputed 3 claims made by Biden during his press conference.
* Biden claim: “We’re sending back the vast majority of families who are coming” to the U.S. border. (Fact: Just 13 percent of families are being sent back, according to a recent Axios report.)
* Biden claim: “The idea that I’m going to say, which I would never do, if an unaccompanied child ends up at the border, we’re just going to let them starve to death and stay on the other side, no previous administrations did either, except Trump.” (Fact: Yup, the 46th president accused the 45th president, with millions at home watching, of starving children to death at the border – which did not happen. There are no documented deaths by starvation.)
* Biden claim: “Truth of the matter is, nothing has changed. As many people came – 28 percent increase in children to the border in my administration; 31 percent in the last year in 2019, before the pandemic – in the Trump administration. It happens every single solitary year. There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March. It happens every year.”
