Joe Biden defended his presidency on Wednesday by bragging he has 'outperformed' expectations, slamming Republicans for working against with him and then saying some GOP lawmakers secretly have told him they're on his side but too worried about a primary to publicly support him. Speaking the day before his one-year anniversary in office, Biden started his first press conference in 78 days but tackling the two issues that are behind his falling poll numbers: the COVID pandemic and the economy. He admitted he should have had more COVID tests ready for Americans and blamed the record-high inflation on the pandemic and the actions of the Federal Reserve. But, he argued, he didn't make too many promises to the American people when he entered the White House last year. 'Look I didn't over promise. But I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen,' Biden said. He then pivoted to blaming Republicans, saying what he didn't expect in his first year was for GOP lawmakers to be so unsupportive. 'I did not anticipate that there would be such a stalwart effort to make sure that the most important thing was that President Biden didn't get anything done,' the president said. 'Think about this. What are Republicans for? What are they for? Name me one thing they're for,' the president continued. 'I haven't been able to do so far is get my Republican friends to get in the game and making things better in this country.' He later said he's had private conversations with five Republican senators who told him they're on his side but too worried about being primaried in this year's midterm election to publicly support him.

Tim Clark, the president of Emirates, appeared on Bloomberg Wednesday to blame the shambolic situation on the Biden administration, which greenlit the 5G rollout without addressing the safety fears of the aviation industry first.

Democrats' so-called 'voting rights' bill is really a progressive wish list: JIM GERAGHTY 

GERAGHTY: The legislation is a massive power grab, removing authority from state legislatures and state courts and putting all the decision-making in Washington. The biggest joke of it all is that Democrats are trying to blow up the filibuster to stop alleged voter suppression immediately after a presidential election with the highest voter turnout of the 21st century, and the largest increase in voters between two presidential elections on record with 17 million more people voting than in 2016. An astounding 67 percen t of all citizens age 18 and older reported voting, up 5 percentage points from 2016. Turnout rates in 2020 was higher among every ethnic group - whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians. In a country with no shortage of real problems, our system of conducting elections are working quite well. Leave it to Joe Biden and Senate Democrats to want to drastically overhaul one of the few parts of American government that isn't broken.

NYPD cops hunt thug who shoved 81-year-old man walking his dog - then flipped him off as he walked away

The older man was simply taking his dog out for a walk in Yorkville on Manhattan's Upper East Side when a man, wearing jeans and a gray zip-up jacket, shoved him to the ground on Christmas.

'My guess is Putin WILL move in': Biden says Russia will roll over Ukraine and warns of crippling dollar sanctions (but says he might get away with a 'minor incursion')

President Joe Biden said his guess is that Russia will 'move in' when asked if Vladimir Putin would invade Ukraine, saying he was 'very concerned' about the situation there. Russia has amassed an estimated 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border. Biden said he is not sure of Vladimir Putin's intentions in Ukraine, and that it may depend 'what side of the bed' he wakes up on.

Biden claims five GOP senators told him they'd vote alongside Democrats but fear Trump

President Joe Biden claimed five Republican senators have told him they'd vote alongside Democrats on various bills, but expressed fear former President Donald Trump would unleash a primary challenger if they stepped out of line. 'I've had five Republican senators talk to me, bump in to me ... or sit with me. Who have told me that they agree with whatever I'm talking about for them to do. "But Joe, if I do it I'm getting defeated in a primary,"' Biden said Wednesday at a press conference marking the end of his first year in office. 'We've gotta break that, it's gotta change.'

Teddy Roosevelt statue removed from outside New York City's Natural History Museum

The 'Equestrian Statue of Theodore Roosevelt,' commissioned in 1925 and unveiled to the public in 1940, was removed from the steps of NYC's Natural History Museum under cover of darkness in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The monument, which depicts Roosevelt on a horse with a Native American man and an African man on foot at his side, has been criticized by some as a symbol of colonialism and racism. The museum on its website said it was proud of its long association with the Roosevelt family, adding: 'At the same time, the statue itself communicates a racial hierarchy the Museum and members of the public have long found disturbing.' In early December, two weeks after the removal was announced, the museum covered the statue under tarp and scaffolding. Its new home will be the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota, where it will remain on long-term loan.

Roseanne Barr's daughter lifts lid on 'R-rated' reality of her family's TV-perfect life

Jenny Pentland, 45, opened up about how the ABC series 'Roseanne' was based on her family in an excerpt from her new memoir, 'This Will Be Funny Later.' Her mother played Roseanne Conner, 'a prime-time friendly version of herself,' while her father was the inspiration for Roseanne's husband Dan. The characters of Becky, Darlene, and D.J. were based on Pentland, her sister Jessica, and her little brother Jake. Pentland explained that what was happening in their lives became 'increasingly rated R,' and a lot of things were left out in later seasons of the show. Barr divorced Bill in 1990 after 16 years of marriage following her affair with comedian Tom Arnold, who she married that same year. In real life, the TV mom also had a secret daughter, Brandi Brown, who was born before her first marriage and put up for adoption before they later reunited.
