(JustPatriots.com)- President Joe Biden is said to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history, so you’d be forgiven for assuming that his press conferences got pretty substantial numbers of viewers.
But…well, they’re not.
According to a report from the Gateway Pundit, a press conference hosted on Thursday that celebrated the 50 millionth shot of the COVID vaccine developed under the Trump administration didn’t even hit one thousand viewers.
In fact, it didn’t even hit 700 viewers, with investigators revealing that only 669 people were watching as it was streamed live.
Newsmax columnist and author James Hirsen shared the news on Twitter.
And his “thinking face” emoji says it all…
Joe Biden held a press conference today to take credit for 50 million COVID vaccines. The stream on the White House YouTube channel only indicated 669 viewers. That’s SIX HUNDRED SIXTY NINE. 🤔

Not only was barely anybody watching the video, it had thousands of “dislikes” and only a couple of hundred “likes.”
As of Friday morning, the video had fewer than 12,000 views on the official White House YouTube channel.
It’s not the first time that a video from the White House YouTube channel has suffered bad ratings, with even inauguration day videos receiving such bad feedback that channel moderators were compelled to switch off comments. But that didn’t stop the flurry of “dislikes” on the videos, which they don’t seem to be able to switch off.
During the ceremony, Biden said that he was on track to achieve the goal of vaccinating 100 million people during the first 100 days of his presidency. The media lapped it up while failing to acknowledge that President Donald Trump had already laid the groundwork and successfully achieved a vaccination rate of over one million people per day by the final day of his administration.
Over the last month, President Joe Biden has barely increased the number of people being vaccinated on a daily basis than President Donald Trump achieved in a mere matter of weeks, with 1.3 million Americans being vaccinated on average each day. The rate also dropped over the last week as much of the country was hit by extreme winter weather conditions.
