Joe Biden completely lost it during his first solo press conference as President. While he did provide viewers with some hilariously awkward moments, resounding feelings of worry and concern quickly follow knowing this man is leader of the free world.
Here are some of Joe Biden’s more notable moments:
1. Biden claimed he misses Donald Trump
A reporter asked Biden if he planned to run for re-election. By this point in his presidency, Trump already revealed his intention to seek reelection, and with his 2024 plans still vague, Biden’s decision to run is much sought after information.

“My predecessor. Oh God, I miss him,” Biden said in an attempt at sarcasm, before confirming his “plan” to seek reelection.
When asked a follow up, Biden said, “I’ve never been able to plan four and a half, three and a half years ahead for certain.”
2. Biden completely loses his mind.
At one point, Biden loses control of his brain function and begins vocalizing his meandering thoughts out loud.

After completing his rambling statement, the struggling president reference his prepared list of reporters to prompt for a question.
“Okay, um… hang on… uh…sorry,” Biden said, thumbing his list.
3. Something about “Jim Eagle”
Biden had strong words for Republican-backed election reform bills in states like Michigan and Georgia.

“This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” Biden said.
He never elaborated on exactly who “Joe Eagle” is.
4. Joe is sure his unclear answer is clear
When a reporter asked Biden if press would soon be allowed to tour over-crowded migrant facilities brimming with illegal aliens, Biden had this to say:
Biden REFUSES to say when he’ll be transparent about the border crisis:
“I will commit to transparency as soon as I’m in a position to implement what we’re doing right now.”
Reporter: “How soon will that be?”

He refused the question but managed to say, “I will commit to transparency as soon as I’m in a position to implement what we’re doing right now.”
“How soon will that be?” the reporter asked Biden.
“I don’t know, to be clear,” the commander-in-chief responded.
5. Biden snaps at reporter when she described disturbing border conditions
When “Fake News” reporter Cecilia Vega described the conditions she witnessed at the border after Biden’s administration encouraged migrants to come, Joe snapped.
Cecilia Vega got two follow-ups and after she asked about whether kids will be allowed to stay in the U.S., she brought up the horrid conditions at CBP facilities, leading Biden to lash out: “Is — that’s a serious question, right? If it’s acceptable to me? Come on.” pic.twitter.com/eIgaHc9Vaj

“That’s a serious question, right?” Biden replied, annoyed. “Is it acceptable to me, come on.”
When all was said and done, Biden only called on ten reporters from his list. He never allowed Fox News or any conservative publication to ask a question.
