Joe Biden snapped at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins today in a signal the honeymoon may finely be over. The media has been nothing but fawning to Biden and Kamala since they started and that doesn’t help anyone let alone the American people.
Collins asked Biden about Putin: “Why are you so confidant he’ll change his behavior, Mr. President?” Biden answered: “I’m not confident. Where he hell–what do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident? I said…let’s get it straight….“
Olivia Nuzzi from New York Magazine was not happy with Joe saying:
“If you’re the most powerful person in the world and you can’t field questions from the media without losing your temper, maybe you’re in the wrong business.
“What kind of example does it set for other countries when the president of the United States insults a member of the free press on an international stage for asking a fair question in good faith?”
CNN’s Manu Raju said:
“Biden flashes anger at the end of presser when pressed by @kaitlancollins about the Putin meeting.”
Caleb Hull said:
“Here’s Joe Biden SNAPPING on a CNN reporter for simply asking a question.
I’m old enough to remember when this would be an “attack on the free press.”
