It’s no secret that Joe Biden does not like getting asked tough questions.
During the 2020 election, he even got testy with reporters who dared challenge him.
(Funny how he often got very mean with all the female reporters who did this.)
But as president, he’s done a good job dodging the media—or only asking pre-approved questions.
In a rare moment, he was recently asked a real question. A reporter wanted to know if Biden could get Putin to really change his ways.
So, Biden snapped.
Biden was asked why he is “so confident” Putin will change his behavior…
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked him, “Given his past behavior has not changed and in that press conference… he denied any involvement in cyberattacks, he downplayed human rights abuses, he even refused to say Alexei Navalny’s name. How does that account to a constructive meeting?”
“If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business,” Biden quipped.
Dang. For once, CNN actually challenged Biden, pushing him for a real answer.
One of their reporters asked if Biden was “confident” Putin would change his behavior.
As usual, Biden was evasive and confrontational. He claimed he never said he was “confident” about Putin.
When the reporter asked him again, pointing to reasons to doubt Putin would change, Biden insulted her.
Biden then threw himself a pity party, claiming reporters only asked him “negative” questions.
Later, Biden apologized for losing his temper and being a “wise guy,” but the damage was done.
Wow. I wonder how this guy would perform if he was a real president, getting asked the kinds of questions Trump was asked.
Biden’s poor reactions brought the wrath of several liberal-leaning journalists. They were shocked, because never has a president been so unwilling to communicate with reporters.
These are the same people who constantly criticized and lied about Donald Trump. Yet they could never claim he wouldn’t speak with them.
Trump’s style may have been bold and unapologetic, but he answered their questions. And he never treated them the way Biden does.
Maybe the MSM needs to rethink its loyalty to this clown?
