Biden Tells Sycophantic Press Corps They’re The Smartest People In The Entire Country

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

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

Biden’s 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.

“I’m 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? Let’s 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 couldn’t understand his claim the meeting with Putin was “constructive” despite the Russian president’s 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, you’ve got to be negative. You’ve gotta have a negative view of life, ok, it seems to me, the way you all…you 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, Biden’s dogs, Biden’s hangouts with his grandkids playing Mario Kart at Camp David, and more. But that doesn’t stop Biden from being quick to criticize reporters for going too hard on him.
