Biden snaps at reporter over basic question at G7 press conference

On the rare occasion that a reporter actually challenges Joe Biden, the president often shows his true colors.

During a press conference at the G7 Summit in the UK, Biden insisted he would “get in trouble” with his staff for taking so many questions. At the end of the presser, he was challenged by a reporter about sanctions put in place by the Trump administration, according to the Daily Wire. Biden snapped, shouting back, “120 days. Give me a break. Need time.”

What happened?

The reporter, who apparently wasn’t on a pre-selected list of reporters that the president is allowed to call upon, fired off what many believe wasn’t even a controversial question about Trump-era sanctions on European countries in the steel and aluminum industry.

“You have often said repeatedly that ‘America is back,'” the reporter said. “At the same time, you’ve kept in play some Trump-era steel and aluminum sanctions. And I wanted to ask you: When you’re having these conversations with European allies who are very concerned about these sanctions, how do you justify that? And what are your plans for…”

But the question apparently tripped Biden’s trigger, as he became visibly aggravated with the reporter’s otherwise simple question.

“A hundred and twenty days,” Biden snapped back in his response. “Give me a break. Need time.”

Not only was the American president ridiculed for losing his cool, but even more embarrassing is the fact that Biden has been in office for longer than 120 days — 145 to be exact — which was pointed out by many of his critics here at home.

Roundtable embarrassment

Not surprisingly, Biden continued to embarrass himself — and the United States by proxy — at a G7 roundtable meeting after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was forced to remind the 78-year-old U.S. president of something that had just happened.

Johnson had just finished introducing various world leaders who had joined the roundtable discussion, including South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who was the only Black leader present.

Moments after Johnson introduced the South African leader to the room, Biden interjected, “And the president of South Africa,” to which Johnson quickly replied, “And the president of South Africa as I said early on.”

It’s those types of moments that should be truly frightening for all Americans, as it further proves that if a serious situation erupts that requires firm and steady leadership from the United States president, Biden just won’t be capable of handling such a crisis.
