President Joe Biden almost erupted in a fit of anger at a reporter on Friday.
The reporter is Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy. It, of course, would not be the first time that Biden snapped at Doocy; it would not be the first time that Biden snapped at a reporter; and it would be far from the first time that Biden directed an angry outburst in public at another individual.
The latest incident was also caught on camera. Take a look:
DOOCY: “Your son, Hunter, just made you a grandfather again!”
BIDEN: “No. That’s a private matter. I have no comment. But only you would ask that! You’re a good man!” pic.twitter.com/d5DqdPmsOR

The above 19-second video clip begins with Doocy asking Biden whether he wants to make any comment on his recent decision to finally acknowledge his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan.
Doocy asked, "Mr. President, I'm wondering if you have a comment on this report and court filing out of Arkansas that your son, Hunter, just made you a grandfather again."
"No, that's a private matter. I have no comment," Biden replied.
Up until now, Biden tried to remain emotionless. But, his anger betrayed him as he proceeded to provide Doocy with several comments - all after saying that he would not.
Biden, with a derisive smile, said, "Only you would ask that." Pointing his finger at Doocy while continuing to smile, Biden added, "You're a good man. You're a good man. Classy."
Friday night, in what some are referring to as a "Friday night news dump," Biden finally acknowledge his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan.
Biden did so in an exclusive statement to People magazine, stating:
Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward. This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter. Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.
Navy is the child of Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts, a former stripper whom Hunter Biden, apparently, had a liaison with while he, at the time, was also in a relationship with Hallie Biden, the widow of Biden's deceased brother, Beau Biden.
Hunter Biden initially claimed he was not the father of the child, but he was proven wrong by a court-ordered DNA test. Ever since then, until this past Friday, the Bidens have refused to recognize Navy as one of their own. This changed on Friday, and the big question is "Why?"
President Biden has yet to answer this question. But, he is running for reelection, and, before finally recognizing Navy, he was getting hammered - including by Democrats - for refusing to acknowledge the girl. This probably explains it all.
