Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, questioned Monday if President Biden is “really in charge” as the president keeps a much lower profile than his predecessors.
The Texas senator questioned the president’s leadership in a Twitter thread aimed at Biden’s sparse media presence where he shared a link to a Politico article on the Biden administration’s communications strategy.
Cornyn quoted a portion of the article that pointed out Biden “is not doing cable news interviews” and that his “limited” social media posts online are “unimaginably conventional” when they do come.
Invites the question: is he really in charge?

“The public comments are largely scripted,” the excerpt continued. “Biden has opted for fewer sit down interviews with mainstream outlets and reporters.”
