- White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced a revolt from reporters who objected to being told they can ask questions at President Joe Biden’s photo ops in lieu of joint press conferences with foreign leaders.
- Biden will host H.E. Leo Varadkar, Taoiseach of Ireland, for a bilateral meeting at the White House on Friday, just the latest of several foreign leader visits that have not included a so-called “2+2” joint press conference in which 2 reporters from each country’s press get to ask questions of each leader.
- At Thursday’s briefing, Jean-Pierre got a blistering response when she suggested reporters could ask questions at the Oval Office photo op instead, which has recently been unfruitful for the press.
