Obama ends first term with fewer press conferences than Bush or Clinton
President Barack Obama had fewer press conferences during his first term than former presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton or George H.W. Bush.
Presidential scholar Martha Joynt Kumar did the math and found that with Monday's conference, Obama has done a total of 79 over four years.
That's 10 fewer than George W. Bush, 54 fewer than Clinton and 63 fewer than George H.W. Bush, Politico reports.
He managed to beat out former President Ronald Reagan, who had only 27 press conferences during his first term, the report added.
