Biden’s handlers know that he can’t handle real questions that aren’t softballs lobbed at him. A perfect example of what I’m talking about happened at that very conference when a reporter who wasn’t on the “approved list” of reporters asked him a question as he was walking away and Biden just stapped at him.
“Why are you so confident he’ll change his behavior, Mr. President?”, asked the reporter.
“I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior. Why the hell…what do you do all the time?” replied Dear Leader.
“When did I say I was confident? I said, what I said was. Let’s get this straight. I said, what’ll change their behavior is when the rest of the world reacts to them and then diminishes their standing in the world. I’m not confident of anything, I’m just stating the facts.”
She then asked a follow-up question but it was either too complicated for him to answer or he had already forgotten what she’d said, so he basically just told her she’s in the wrong business because she didn’t think the meeting between the two presidents was a productive one.
