(Congress Report) – President Joe Biden sat in the Oval Office on Tuesday, next to the Dutch Prime Minister, while reporters lobbed questions at him concerning the classified document scandal he’s now embroiled in, and, as always, he had that smug smirk plastered on his face. He then shrugged to his visitor and then chuckled as if to say the journalists asking him these critically important questions about our national security were just a pesky nuisance, like buzzing flies around a summer picnic.
This is nothing new for Biden. He’s made a habit of mocking our media in front of other foreign leaders. I suppose he thinks this makes him look big and bad, a real macho man, but in reality it’s arrogance. Is it any wonder people don’t really like the guy? He works pretty hard at being unlikable.
The Daily Mail said that back in September of last year, Biden was captured on a hot mic telling the president of the Philippines, “I wouldn’t bother answering.”
“When British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited the White House last year, he took questions. Biden just sat there, as he does, arms folded, hands clasped or on his chin,” David Marcus revealed.
‘They’re among the only press in the world that does this. Seriously. Seriously,’ he jovially went on to tell his guests in October.
It seems the message that Biden wants Americans to pick up on is that American reporters are a joke, and if we’re talking about the guys from the vast majority of outlets, then, well, yes, they are pretty much a bunch of court jesters. But that’s because they are lap dogs who behave more like propaganda creators than journalists.
“Cynically, he’s on to something. Unfortunately, and not totally undeservedly, the media in America is about as trusted as a used car salesman with a face tattoo. But Biden’s act is just a thin veil. The truth is the reporters get to him because he can’t take the heat. He’s scared to open his mouth. When he tried ad-libbing an answer about his mishandling of America’s secrets by storing them in his garage, he made it worse,” Marcus stated.
‘By the way, my Corvette’s in a locked garage, OK? So it’s not like they’re sitting out on the street,’ the president commented.
Say, do you guys remember the time Biden was busted on another hot mic calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch,” or the time he referred to NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell as a “pain in the neck?” Such a classy guy, right? More like a perpetually cranky old man who needs a nap.
“In October, pressed about his lack of campaign trail appearances and the implication that down ballot candidates didn’t want to appear with him he whined, ‘That’s not true, there have been 15 of them, count, kid, count,’ at a female reporter,” Marcus noted.
When the president was asked what limits he would be putting on abortion, rather than give an intellectually cogent answer, he muttered, “It’s Roe v. Wade. Read it, man, you’ll get educated.”
Which can be loosely translated to, “I have no idea what we’re talking about, where I am, and what I’m doing here.”
All of this mistreatment has caused a lot of the folks who support Biden in the media to begin to sort of, well, wake up a bit. The frustration has grown over the last couple of weeks as they’ve been openly lied to about the classified documents scandal.
“On Friday Biden sent his hapless press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to the briefing room to pass on inaccurate and incomplete information about how many documents had been found. She admits now that the White House didn’t even bother to update her, she didn’t know the facts,” Marcus wrote. “Biden can’t sit out this classified document scandal in his basement as he did with the 2020 presidential election. Covid can’t protect him from vigorous questions this time around.”
The American people certainly deserve better than a commander-in-chief who scoffs at hard questions and mocks reporters for doing their jobs. He needs to develop intestinal fortitude and answer the questions citizens of this great nation have been asking concerning this scandal.
Marcus finished by offering the president a great piece of advice:
“And for God’s sake, wipe that self-satisfied grin off your face.”

I hope ALL of the press will start to realize that all you have to do to President Biden is to challenge him at something he has said or did. HE WILL GET VERY DEFENSIVE. He has shown this BEHAVIOR in the past.
Up to this point there has only been 1 or 2 news organizations who have attempted this.
Some of these instances were reported in this article. You can go back and look at previous interviews or news conferences that will show other examples
Biden is arrogant because he knows nothing will happen to him or his family because he’s well connected and protected by the “Swamp” people, the DOJ, the FBI, and the media. He knew he didn’t have to do much campaigning for the 2020 elections because he knew he was a sure winner. So far, he’s been correct about all of that. If not for the protection he’s been getting, he’d be out on the street or facing a federal judge. This same protection has been given to his corrupt, traitorous son. Biden will pardon whatever is done to his son for his crimes. Hunter will only need to worry if his trial and conviction occur after his father is out of office and cannot pardon him.
