Pentagon on Biden Not Knowing Austin Was Out: They Talk a Lot, It Was 'a Holiday Period'

On Friday's broadcast of CNN's "The Lead," Pentagon Deputy Press Secretary Sabrina Singh responded to questions on why President Joe Biden didn't know about Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin's absence since the two should talk frequently by stating that they "do speak quite often. Again, we're coming off of a holiday period. They are in touch frequently. Our staffs, I can tell you, are in touch almost on an hourly basis."
