Since taking office, Joe Biden has quipped on more than one occasion that his handlers tell him which reporters to take questions from and which to avoid.
He’s also been reported to have suffered some serious temper tantrums behind closed doors.
Well, rumors of Biden’s temper are now coming to light, especially after he snapped at this Fox News reporter.
Joe Biden’s first trip overseas as President was a complete disaster.
Even the Democrat-controlled media had difficulty painting a pretty picture after his abysmal performance at the G-7 summit.
At one point Biden was wrapping up a press conference after what can only be described as a failed summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, when the reporters who didn’t make the “cut” for the pre-approved list started loudly hurling questions at Biden.
Peter Doocy, Fox News White House Correspondent and regular on the “not approved to ask an official question” list, was called on by Biden.
Evidently, Biden forgot his handlers’ continued orders to not take questions from unapproved reporters, especially not Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who has no problem backing politicians into a corner.
Doocy wanted to know if Biden would ask his “old friend” Chinese President Xi Jinping for access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology so the debate about where the coronavirus outbreak had originated could be settled once and for all.
“You keep saying there’s no substitute for face-to-face dialogue, and also with what you said at NATO, the biggest problems right now are Russia and China. You have spoken many times about how you have spent perhaps more time with President Xi than any other world leader. So is there going to become a time where you might call him, old friend to old friend, and ask him to open up China to the World Health Organization investigators who are trying to get to the bottom of COVID-19?” Doocy asked Biden.
At this point, Biden’s temper was on full display when he quickly snapped at Doocy, stating that President Xi was not his “old friend.”
Unfortunately for Biden, he is the one that has previously claimed Xi was an “old friend,” but this time around, he stated that “we know each other well, we’re not old friends.”
Looks like another Biden flip-flop or a lapse in memory, which appears to be happening more and more for the President.
There is no question that Biden has no plans to investigate the Wuhan lab or find out if the coronavirus did originate there.
But he might want to be careful about that temper of his that seems to be appearing more and more.
It’s often stated that people with a hair-trigger have something to hide.
