Biden Tells Sycophantic Press They’re The Smartest People In America – The Federalist

President Joe Biden told reporters following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that he thinks theyre the smartest people in the entire country.

You all are some of the brightest people in the country, Biden said. I mean it, Im not being solicitous. But it makes no sense for me to negotiate with you!

Bidens fawning came just minutes after he lashed out at CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins for asking why he was confident Putin would change his behavior following the meeting.

Im not confident, Biden yelled as he turned around to face the press pool. What the hell, what do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident? Lets get this straight. I said what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world.

He also claimed the reporter was in the wrong business if she couldnt understand his claim the meeting with Putin was constructive despite the Russian presidents downplaying of human rights abuses.

Biden later apologized to Collins for being a wise guy but not without throwing another round of criticism at the White House press pool.

To be a good reporter, youve got to be negative. Youve gotta have a negative view of life, ok, it seems to me, the way you allyou never ask a positive question, Biden said.

Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris both have a history of snapping at their Democrat cronies in the corporate media. The media cheerleaders offer the administration a wide berth, with hard-hitting coverage of the White House on topics like Harris Timberland boots, Bidens dogs, Bidens hangouts with his grandkids playing Mario Kart at Camp David, and more. But that doesnt stop Biden from being quick to criticize reporters for going too hard on him.
