According to former ESPN host Sage Steele, her 2021 interview with President Joe Biden was “scripted” by network executives. 

How much? “Every single question” she claims.

Nothing is Real with Biden

In an interview with Fox News, Sage Steele talks about the “structured” nature of the pre-taped interview and emphatically said her ESPN bosses handed her a “script” to use.

“That was an interesting experience in its own right because it was so structured,” she said. “And I was told, ‘You will say every word that we write out, you will not deviate from the script and go.’” 

The story continued:

Many of the questions Steele asked Biden in the March 2021 interview pertained to sports leagues attempting to restore normalcy during the COVID pandemic and vaccine hesitancy among athletes and fans. Her interview made headlines at the time when Biden supported the MLB’s All-Star game boycott of Atlanta following the passage of Georgia’s election reform law.

But everything Steele said to the president ultimately came from ESPN’s c-suite.

“To the word. Every single question was scripted, gone over dozens of times by many editors and executives. Absolutely. I was on script and was told not to deviate,” Steele told Fox News Digital. “It was very much ‘This is what you will ask. This is how you will say it. No follow-ups, no follow-ups. Next.’ … This went up to the fourth floor, as we said, where all the bosses, the top executives, the decision makers are, the president of our company, the CEO, where they all worked.”

Steele said she didn’t know for certain whether ESPN sent the questions to the White House in advance of the interview but seemed confident that is “what happened.”

Sage Steele: ‘Heartbreaking’

Steele said on her new podcast “The Sage Steele Show,” that her exchange with Biden was undoubtedly “heartbreaking,” referring to his mental abilities.

“I think it’s really heartbreaking that the people who love Joe Biden and say they truly care about him have allowed it to get to this point,” Steele said. “So I’m not even looking at this from a political angle or my beliefs in anything. This is the human side of it. And when someone is struggling, we allow them to continue to be in the spotlight and put them out there in the first place when they knew there were issues? Of course, they had to know.”

“So it’s a humanity thing with me where I don’t care where anyone stands and what they vote for or who they believe in,” she added. “Do you really care about that person? As a father, as a husband, as an everything.”

Whether Joe Biden is re-elected president or not is anyone’s guess.

But his handlers certainly don’t seem to want him to go off script.
