We’ve been reporting on Joe Biden’s inability to take being challenged since he started running for office in 2019. When anyone presents questions or facts that he doesn’t want to deal with, he has frequently lost it on people including cursing at voters and insulting reporters. Just in the past day, Biden has snapped at a reporter who dared to ask him whether his releasing 15 million more barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve was a political move to help the Democrats in the election. Then when Fox’s Peter Doocy asked him about what was his top domestic priority — inflation or abortion? Biden didn’t like the question and insulted Doocy, saying all the issues “were all important, unlike you, there’s no one thing.”
On Thursday, it got even worse as Biden was trying to head out to his helicopter to go to Pennsylvania to campaign for John Fetterman, but stopped to speak with reporters. However, 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…,” an indisputable statement of fact.
That set Joe off, he interrupted her, and grabbed her, “That’s not true! There’ve been 15. COUNT KID, COUNT!”
Biden’s truly losing it now. Why is he even touching this woman reporter, much less insulting her by calling her a “kid.” No, Joe, she’s an adult, not a kid, who you shouldn’t be touching and she just asked you a good question. I haven’t counted up the number of people who he has been out campaigning for, but Joe being Joe, that number probably isn’t accurate. But even if it was 15, that number in the middle of such an important midterm is nothing to brag about — it’s embarrassing. It says how bad things are for the Democrats and how much Democratic candidates are avoiding being with Biden. They know what a weight he is around their necks because of his unpopularity and what he’s done to the country. But the Democratic candidates can’t avoid the anger of the people’s votes simply by not having him there.
That should be some event between Fetterman and Biden when both have such issues of coherence.
Another reporter asked Biden about abortion and whether there should be restrictions.
He responded, “Yes, there should be.” The reporter asked, “What should they be?” Biden shot back and then grabbed the reporter’s hands, “It’s Roe v. Wade. Read it, man. You’ll get educated.”
Again, why is Biden touching anyone else and then demeaning this man like he doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it’s Joe who is constantly clueless? Stop touching people. It’s an effort to control them, to push his point, but he’s very bad at it.
People shot back at his interpretation of Roe.
Does he know that Roe was overturned? I’m not sure.
The bill Biden and the Democrats put forward has no restrictions and would allow abortion up to birth. That’s also been the position that most of the Democratic candidates have either taken or not disavowed. I’m not sure what Biden is saying here with his response. I’m not sure he knows either but just saying that there “should be” restrictions is likely to inflame some on the left.
The White House Press Association should be objecting to the way Biden treats reporters. This is getting out of control. We all know that had President Donald Trump done this, they’d all be losing their minds about how he put his hands on reporters and it would be covered 24/7. But then we have Biden, who has a groping issue, and I’m guessing we’re not going to hear anything at all about any complaints.
But having a person in charge that acts like this is a danger to national security.
