President Joe Biden has become notorious for exhibiting bizarre behavior, and that trait was on display again last week. Video footage tweeted out by the Daily Caller on Thursday showed the president leaning in to snap at a reporter.
The incident played out on the White House lawn when a reporter said that although Democratic Pennsylvania Senate John Fetterman asked Biden to come and campaign with him, “not many” other Democrats have done the same.
President calls reporter a “kid”
“John Fetterman’s gonna appear with you today in Pennsylvania, but there haven’t been that many candidates campaigning with you,” the reporter said.
An angered Biden leaned toward the reporter and snapped, “That’s not true. There have been 15. Count, kid, count.”

Fox News reported that during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania, appeared to suggest that Fetterman’s wife, Gisele Fetterman, was the one seeking office.
“John, thank you very much for running, I really do appreciate it,” Biden was quoted as saying. “And Gisele, you’re gonna be a great, great lady in the Senate.”
“What are you talking about?”
Friday’s incident was not the first time Biden became irritated with suggestions that other Democrats are avoiding him. On Thursday the president grew incoherent when a reporter pointed out that Senate candidates in Ohio and Georgia seem to be keeping their distance.

When a reporter asked, “Sir, why don’t more candidates want to be seen in public with you, like Mr. Fetterman?” Biden responded, “They’re — they’re — what are you talking about?”
“Tim Ryan in Ohio says he doesn’t want you there. Warnock said he wouldn’t say. Do you think they’re making a mistake?” the reporter replied.
“No. There have been 16 that have already (inaudible), and a lot more have asked — another 20 or so. So I’m going to be doing it,” the president said.
