Biden says “a poison is running through our Democracy” as he notes disinformation while hailing importance of free press at the White House Correspondents Dinner

Biden is prepping his first big comedy speech -- though he told advisers he wants to strike a serious tone about the free press too: "This is a President who has used the expression 'Not a joke, folks' more than he has told actual jokes," one writer said.

Biden says the word "abortion" for the first time of his presidency, calling draft decision "quite radical" in regulating private life: "Who you marry, whether or not you decide to conceive a child or not, whether or not you can have a abortion, a range of other decisions."

Biden has evolved over a long career from saying Roe went “too far” to urging Congress to codify it into law. For a President with a complicated history on abortion, it is now a central issue. W/ ⁦ @mj_lee ⁩
