This week, President Biden gives his first press conference as reporters asked the commander-in-chief about immigration, the filibuster, foreign policy, and more.
Modern living in the West is a mad rush… but why? After opening dialogue on mindfulness (and how badly many of us need to make time for “silence” in our lives), we turn our attention toward controversial new legislation in Georgia that may affect ease of access for voters, and has led to many boycotts of the state. Then shifting our attention over to President Biden’s first official press conference, we look at why the commander in chief has come under fire for his statements about immigration, the filibuster, and a range of other topics, all of which we analyze on this week’s edition of Middle Theory.
