Biden Mocks, Freaks Out on Reporter

Joe Biden does not like being confronted by the press — or anyone else — when it comes to his shady past and behavior. The former vice president turned presidential candidate has infamously lashed out when facing questions that he doesn’t like.

Weeks ago, Biden made waves for calling a town hall attendee a “d*mn liar” after the man asked about his involvement in Ukraine. Later, the former vice president would challenge this attendee to a push-up contest.

Only the guilty are this touchy when asked about their past behavior. However, Biden has a penchant for putting his foot in his mouth. No matter how much he embarrasses himself, the former vice president simply can’t stop.

This explains why Biden freaked out on a reporter earlier this week when being asked about his prior comments regarding Bernie Sanders. Washington Examiner reports that Biden not only freaked out on the reporter, but also mocked his choice of words.

What to Know About Biden’s Latest Meltdown

On Wednesday, Biden was asked by Ed O’Keefe, a CBS reporter, about his decision to attack rival Bernie Sanders. It’s worth noting that Sanders is beginning to lead Biden in various polls as Warren supporters jump ship to back the Vermont senator. The timing of this all comes as Warren and Sanders attempt to put to bed a feud over whether Sanders claimed a woman cannot become president.

Instead of Biden answering O’Keefe’s questions about why he went after Sanders, the former vice president mocked the CBS reporter by saying, “Why, why, why, why, why, why, why.”

Quite frankly, this is ironic coming from someone who can barely get two sentences out on a debate stage. The former vice president is known for stammering when he gets flustered; therefore, he’d do well to get his own affairs in order before going after reporters who ask him challenging questions.

After mocking O’Keefe, Biden accused him of becoming “nervous,” telling him “calm down.” The 77-year-old then went on to state that Sanders issued an apology for calling him corrupt and didn’t comment on his Social Security remarks.

A Poor Temperament

Throughout presidential elections, the temperament of candidates typically arises at one point or another. What Biden has proven time and time again is that he lacks not only the temperament, but also the fitness to become president.

If the former vice president can’t handle being asked about his attacks on a candidate, how will he deal with foreign leaders or our adversaries? The reality is that Biden lacks the judgment, temperament, and mental fitness to be anywhere near the presidency. If the Democrats are foolish enough to nominate him, Trump will tear Biden to pieces; the former vice president won’t know what hit him.
