Biden has been unable to be challenged ever since he started running for office, but he is getting much worse. As soon as anyone questions him or offers facts contrary to his, he shuts the whole conversation down. And when that doesn’t work, Biden tends to lose it on people. The president has even used foul language at voters and has insulted reporters.
Just this week, Biden snapped at a reporter who simply asked him whether his releasing 15 million more barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was a political move. The thought was that this move would help Democrats in the coming midterms.
And when Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked the president about what his first domestic priority was inflation or abortion, Biden just didn’t like the question. The president insulted Doocy and said the issues were all important, “unlike you, there’s no one thing.”
Later, it got even worse when Biden was attempting to leave in his helicopter to go to Pennsylvania so he could campaign for John Fetterman. He stopped to speak with reporters, and one reporter put him on the spot.
“John Fetterman’s gonna appear with you today in Pennsylvania, but there haven’t been that many candidates campaigning with you….”
That is an absolutely true statement, but it ticked Biden off. He then interrupted the reporter and grabbed her saying, “That’s not true! There’ve been 15. COUNT KID, COUNT!”
Can you believe that the president of the United States reached out and grabbed a reporter to shout her down? He insulted her by calling her a “kid,” even though she is an adult, and all she did was ask him a legitimate question.
The truth is that Joe’s number of 15 probably isn’t even accurate, and even if it is, it’s really not something anyone should be bragging about. Do you realize how many elections are happening now?
