The press has mostly been on Biden’s side throughout his presidency. But that wasn’t the case this time.
Because Joe Biden exploded on a reporter after they dare to ask him this one question.
Thursday evening, President Joe Biden held a press conference where he discussed the special counsel releasing a report that showed he “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency.”
After Biden spoke, he began answering questions from reporters.
One question in particular made the president very angry when she asked it.
“Mr. President, for months, when you were asked about your age, you would respond with the words, ‘watch me,'” she said before Biden shot back by responding “watch me.”
“Many American people have been watching, and they have expressed concerns about your age,” she continued.
“That is your judgment! That is your judgment. That is not the judgment of the press,” Biden said while pointing his finger.
“They express concerns about your mental acuity, they say that you are too old. Mr. President, in December, you told me, ‘there are many other Democrats who could defeat Donald Trump’ so why does it have to be you now?” the reporter asked.
“Because I’m the most qualified person in this country to be president of the United States and finish the job I started,” Biden answered.

The president can fight back with the press all he wants on this issue, but the facts remain the same.
According to a Harvard-Harris poll that was released in January, 63% of 2,346 voters who were surveyed had “doubts about his fitness for office,” regarding Biden.
70% believe that Biden is “showing he is too old” to be president.
And last Tuesday, NBC News came out with a report that shows that “Three-quarters of voters, including half of Democrats, say they have concerns about President Biden’s mental and physical health.”
So it looks like it’s not just that one reporter who believes Americans are worried about Biden’s age like he insinuated in the press conference.
The president can deny it all he wants, but the fact of the matter is, he can barely hold a press conference without stumbling over his words and mixing up names of foreign leaders.
And lashing out at the press only makes things worse for Biden.
Thursday evening was just another firestorm in the White House that the Biden administration has grown accustomed to at this point.
