Is President Joe Biden a grumpy old man? That’s the question people are asking following an explosive response to a reporter’s question concerning his meeting with Russian President Vladimir “I Must Break You” Putin. It’s never easy being the Creep-in-Chief, so is it any surprise that President “Creepy” Joe Biden scolded a reporter? Let’s see what (the aptly named) Yahoo! News has to say about the incendiary incident:
As he was walking out of a solo press conference following his meeting with Putin, Biden bristled at a shouted question from CNN chief White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who asked why Biden is “so confident” that Putin would change his behavior after their summit.
“I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior. What in the hell?” Biden said as he turned around to address Collins directly. “When did I say I was confident?”
He then walked back to Collins, with a finger raised, as he explained his position.
(Unfortunately, the article didn’t mention which finger “Forgetful” Joe raised. Was it his index finger, the tall boy, or some other digit?
“What I said was — let’s get this straight — what I said was what will change the behavior is the rest of the world to them and diminishes their standing in the world,” Biden said. “I’m not confident of anything. I’m just stating the fact.”
This isn’t the first time “Sleepy” Joe has lost it with the media as any Google search will reveal a mix of meltdowns. The summit with Russia’s Vladimir Putin was undoubtedly stressful and it’s also possible Joe’s blood sugar was low when he snapped at the journalist. However, to his credit, “China” Joe apologized (perhaps his wife Dr. Jill provided him with some Sunsweet Pitted Prunes for a quick glucose pick-me-up).
“I owe my last questioner an apology,” Biden said to reporters on the tarmac in Geneva. “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave.”
“To be a good reporter you have to be negative at life,” Biden continued. “You are the brightest people in the country, but [it] makes no sense for me to negotiate with you.
“I apologize for having been short,” he added.
No word on whether Joe was referring to being short on brains, talent, or just short-tempered.
