Is the presidency too much for him?
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently outed Biden by stating that he regularly needs help from former President Obama.
During a press briefing, she said:
“Well, I will say, having a unique view of this question, they are not just — they were not just the President and Vice President; they are friends, and they consult and talk about a range of issues. And, you know, I would expect that continues through the course of President Biden’s presidency. That can be done over the phone, it turns out. And I don’t — I think if President Obama had been here, you would all know; he’s a recognizable figure. But I expect, given former President Obama’s work on the Affordable Care Act, President Biden’s commitment to expanding access to healthcare throughout his presidency, that, you know, it’s an issue they’ll talk about. But in terms of what he’ll be involved in, I would point you to his team. Eric Schultz — I can give you his phone number if you need it.“
A reporter then asked, “Do you know how many times they’ve spoken since Inauguration Day?“
She responded saying, “I don’t have an exact number for you. You know, they keep in regular touch and our teams are in regular touch about a range of issues.”
