"Well they were strange questions and they were asked in a very interesting way. It was like softballs, like you're throwing softballs up," Trump said.

During an interview Thursday night on the Fox News Channel with conservative commentator Laura Ingraham, former President Donald Trump said that the press asked President Biden softball questions during Biden's press conference earlier in the day.

"Well they were strange questions and they were asked in a very interesting way. It was like softballs, like you're throwing softballs up," Trump said. 

"It's very sad to watch actually. They're feeding him questions, they're easy questions. I noticed Peter Doocy didn't get to ask a question today. And there could be no difficult questions and they're ready to rip the microphone away if somebody did get a little bit testy."

The press briefing marked President Biden's first formal press conference since being sworn in as president.
