Poor old Joe lost his temper when a reporter called him out over his recent feud with Senator Bernie Sanders.
The confrontation occurred when CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe asked Biden why he went after Sanders after he accepting his apology over an op-ed Sanders wrote calling him corrupt. As O’Keefe confronted Biden why the senator’s apology wasn’t enough Biden turned around and said, “why, why, why, why, why, why, why!?” When you watch the video you’ll catch the twitch in Biden as he turns around to confronts the reporter.
“You’re getting nervous, man,” the former vice president continued. “Calm down, it’s okay.”
Biden told O’Keefe that Sanders only apologized for accusing him of corruption but refused to apologize about the claim he wanted to cut social security and then thumped on the reporter’s chest.
On Tuesday evening, Sanders tweeted, “Let’s be honest, Joe. One of us fought for decades to cut Social Security, and one of us didn’t. But don’t take it from me. Take it from you.”

The tweet shows a clip of Biden in 1995 saying, “When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant Social Security as well. I meant Medicare and Medicaid. I meant veterans’ benefits. I meant every single solitary thing in the government. And I not only tried it once — I tried it twice. I tried it a third time, and I tried it a fourth time.”
Biden is also upset over a video the Sanders campaign has launched claiming it’s a doctored video of him from 2012 saying he supports Rep. Paul Ryan’s plan to cut social security.
“But it is simply a lie, that video that is going around, and ask anybody in the press, it’s a flat lie. They’ve acknowledged that this is a doctored tape,” Biden said. “And I think it’s beneath him, and I’m looking for his campaign to come forward and disown it, but they haven’t done it yet.”
Now that the heat is being turned up the former Vice President doesn’t seem to be handling the pressure well. If this is how Biden responds to pressure I can’t wait to watch him and President Trump duke it out during the debates.
On a side note, could you imagine what would happen if President Trump slammed his fist on a reporter’s chest? The media would go crazy, next thing you know Democrat’s would try to impeach him for assault.
