Joe Biden snapped at reporters once again when asked unscripted questions about his recent talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the end of a news conference on Wednesday, Biden lashed out at a CNN reporter for questioning his previous statements of positive expectations from the meeting with Putin.
“I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior….What do you do all day? When did I say I was confident?” he snapped. “…If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business.
It has been 34 days since Biden has done an interview.
Where is the media outrage over one of the least transparent presidents in modern history?

Just a few hours later, Biden attacked another reporter at the Geneva airport. When questioned about details regarding his negotiations with Putin, Biden asserted he wasn’t obligated to inform the media on that subject.
“It makes no sense for me to negotiate with you. It makes no sense for me to tell you what I’m about to do,” he explained. “Not because I want to hide anything from you. Why would I tell you about that?”
Left-wing media did not push back on Biden for insulting journalists and dodging their questions. This comes in stark contrast with severe media attacks on President Trump following his summit with Putin back in 2018.
