Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer called President-elect Joe Biden’s Monday press conference “a bit of a lovefest here between the media.”
Biden discussed coronavirus spikes, mask-wearing and criticized President Donald Trump for so far refusing to work with his team on transitioning. The press conference also included several questions from reporters.
“You’ve been watching what amounts to a bit of a lovefest here between the media,” Hemmer said. “At the beginning of the outset Joe Biden said we are going into a dark winter, something he said earlier, then a bit later he recommended no more than ten Americans in a single room for Thanksgiving.”
Citing vaccine distribution logistics, Biden suggested during the press conference that “more people may die” if the transition teams do not coordinate. (RELATED: Trump Accuses Biden Of Taking Alleged Scripted Questions During Press Conference — ‘Just Like Crooked Hillary’)
“Look, as my chief of staff Ron Klain would say, who handled ebola, a vaccine is important,” he said. “It’s of little use until you’re vaccinated. If we have to wait until January 20th to start that planning, it puts us behind over a month, month and a half, so it’s important that it be done, that there be coordination now. Now or as rapidly as we can get that done.”
