Joe Biden loves CNN town hall events and he is about to do another one.
Additionally, this CNN event will have an audience made up of ‘invitation only’ members. Who do you think will be invited?
Do you think Biden will get a single tough question from this totally random audience?
The New York Post reports:
Biden to participate in CNN town hall this week with ‘invitation-only audience’
President Biden is set to participate in a CNN town hall in Baltimore this week where he will face questions from an “invitation-only audience” — as his administration juggles uniting the Democratic Party, a worsening border crisis and supply-chain bottlenecks creating empty shelves and threatening the on-time arrival of holiday gifts.
On Monday, CNN announced the 90-minute town hall, which will be moderated by Anderson Cooper and air at 8 p.m. ET Thursday on the network.
The president, who has recently been traveling across the country touting his “Build Back Better” agenda, could face questions regarding a number of crises and difficulties his administration is facing.
Late last week, Democrats in the Senate were reportedly getting frustrated with Biden over his ongoing negotiations with Sens. Joe Machin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), which are stalling the passage of two key pieces of legislation — a bipartisan infrastructure bill and a massive spending package — that make up the core of his agenda.
This looks pretty weak.
A CNN invitation-only audience with pre-scripted questions is very different from facing the press, which Biden now hasn’t done for 95 days. https://t.co/hcZj4AFrhC

Invitation only audience? That’s not a town hall, more like a liberal cheering section.https://t.co/N3onjLVUXl

It’s like everything about this administration is staged.
