What occurred during a Biden press event is exactly why the White House has to give Biden flashcards.
To start the press conference even Biden joked it was all theater.

However, as the press conference ended Biden was asked a question by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins off script and that caused him to lash out.
“If you don’t understand that,” Biden tells a reporter pushing him to explain how it was a constructive meeting with Putin if he still denies human rights abuses and cyber attacks, “you’re in the wrong business.”

Before getting on Air Force One Biden apologized stating, “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave.” When asked if he could answer a couple of questions he informed the media he isn’t allowed.

Then state TV jumped, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins said that she appreciated the apology but it wasn’t necessary. Who is she kidding! If President Trump talked to her like that we wouldn’t her the end of it for three weeks.
—@KaitlanCollins says she was just doing her job & Biden apologizing was “completely unnecessary.”
“He did not have to apologize, though I do appreciate he did.”
Collins adds that “asking the president a question does not mean it has a negative slant or a positive slant.” pic.twitter.com/PoN2uxzpxV

Below is a reminder that Biden seems to have anger issues when he gets frustrated.
