I haven't taken a scientific look, but I believe that, so far, Joe Biden is the most relatively invisible president we've had. Seven weeks into his term he has yet to hold a news conference or give a national address. (He's scheduled to give his first on Thursday).
When we catch a glimpse of him, he sometimes seems willing to take questions, but seems to get cut off by handlers.
Does this worry you?
I've heard some people say they are fine with it and just appreciate the lack of drama after a tumultuous four years with President Trump.
I wonder what the international headlines would look like if, as President, it were Trump who was "avoiding the press," making few public appearances, and reading occasional proof-of-life statements from a teleprompter. I wonder what stories, rumors and speculation would have been leaked to the press. Surely there would have been demands for Trump to complete mental and physical evaluations, and release the findings to the public; and invoke the 25th amendment to remove him.
Are you worried?
Or happy to have presidential drama not hitting the daily news?
