120 Years a Senator: Lowlights and LOLz of Biden’s First Presidential Presser

US President Joe Biden’s first press conference left reporters and viewers with more questions than answers — not least of which was who exactly is Jim Eagle, and what has he got to do with voting laws?

US President Joe Biden has muddled his age again, telling reporters at his first White House press conference he’d been in the Senate for 120 years. 

The freakish admission was just one of many cringeworthy moments as the 78-year-old stumbled through the presser that he put off until his 65th day in office, speaking in front of a handful of journalists.
