President-elect Joe Biden, meanwhile, is filling the void. The Biden transition team is making news on an almost hourly basis. Trump suddenly has to adjust to the new norm: He’s just a secondary story.
Reps from the Biden team were on all five of the biggest Sunday TV shows this A.M. Ron Klain was on “This Week,” Jen Psaki was on “SOTU,” Symone Sanders was on “Face The Nation,” Cedric Richmond was on “Meet the Press,” and Kate Bedingfield was on “Fox News Sunday.”
This didn’t happen by accident — according to a Biden transition official, it was a conscious choice to show that the transition is moving forward and that the Biden team is accessible to the media. The interview bookings also created a contrast with the Trump White House and the Trump legal team, since there were ZERO Trump reps made available for any of the shows.
“There’s a new sheriff in town,” a the Biden official remarked to me Sunday morning. “The White House is basically admitting defeat by not even showing up to defend their absurd position.”
Monday’s on-camera event
Via CNN’s Arlette Saenz: “President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will hold a virtual meeting with the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Monday, the transition announced Sunday. This will follow Biden’s virtual meeting with a group of bipartisan governors last week.” The meeting will be open to cameras.
