Biden’s Cushy Press Over? CNN Correspondent Says ‘Never Seen’ Aides ‘Scream’ at President to Stop Talking

‘I’ve never seen a president so protected by his aides’

The mainstream media and press hated former President Trump, but they now may be realizing just how nice it was to have a President that actually spoke to them. Even left-wing liberal media outlet CNN has expressed disappointment in the Biden administration’s relationship with the press.

On Wednesday, CNN’s chief national affairs correspondent Jeff Zeleny expressed “I have never seen a president, covering the last four of them, who was so protected by his aides in terms of often not wanting him to answer some questions.”

Zeleny’s comments came after Biden’s much-anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying Biden wanted to set his own narrative after the meeting when addressing with the press, stating “we have seen President Biden do that pretty well.” However, he added, “what we have not seen him do is answer questions like that without his aides screaming at him to stop.”

That being said, we can’t entirely blame his aides for stopping the President from getting in his own way. When Biden does answer questions, it too gets him in trouble. On the same day, Biden angrily responded to CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins’ question; prompting him to later apologize to the press for being a “wise guy.”

The Daily Mail reports:

Biden said on Wednesday that he warned Putin that Russian cyberattacks on ‘critical’ U.S. infrastructure would draw a serious American response – and told his counterpart just how harmful a cyber attack might be on an oil pipeline that is the lifeline of the Russian economy.

Biden threatened retaliation and made his explicit comment publicly – even as he denied making any kind of a ‘threat’ in his meetings with the Russian president – as they discussed ransomware attacks that shut down the Colonial pipeline and has other U.S. and multinational businesses on edge.

His cyber saber-rattling came during a contentious press conference where he also shouted at a CNN reporter who yelled out a question asking why he was so confident the Russian strongman would change his behavior, given his denials and his history.
‘I’m not confident I’ll change his behavior. What do you do all the time?’ he said.
Biden walked up to the reporter, with his suit jacket off on an unusually hot day, and accused her of not knowing her business – gesticulating while holding his Ray-Ban sunglasses.

‘When did I say I was confident? I said … What I said was – let’s get it straight,’ Biden said.

‘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.

‘I’m not confident of anything. I’m just stating the facts.’

Minutes after the tense exchange, Biden sought to clean up the incident, speaking with traveling reporters under the wing of Air Force One.

‘I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave,’ Biden said.

    Biden is a dementia-ridden ‘grumpy old man’ with no filter between his mouth and his brain. He’s an ill tempered and senile old fool that should be in a nursing home, not the Oval Office. He’s an international embarrassment. His handlers know that he’s simply out of control no matter how they attempt to script and stage his pressers.

    These so called “Handlers” KNOWINGLY allowed a SIGNIFICANTLY mentally impaired individual to run for President. They openly knew this fact when he was chosen by the Democrats in April 2020 and because of it; hid him in a basement for 6 months. Whether it was a “plan” to GET him chosen so they could “puppeteer” him is irrelevant; he needs to be removed along with his VP and the people directly responsible for hiding him in a basement need to be indicted for sedition; i.e., non-war time TREASON.

    Clinton, William, and “Blue”, I love your opinions. You all said PERFECTLY the right comments!!! Why, I couldn’t have commented better myself! If you have read any of my comments, yes, I am a firebrand. I worship at the altar of PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump, as some of you know. We true citizens of this marvelous country have GOT to all rise up and DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY! Biden’s cohorts who are running the show, Susan Rice; the “squad”; Pelosi, Shumer, and other liars, e.g., Adam Schiff (oops! I almost wrote something else for perverse Schiff)! Can you believe Biden’s weird actions, stumblings on plane steps,comments and whisperings??? Another thing: have you ever seen such evil, professional liars in your lives? They have vilified the REAL president Donald Trump for over 4 years. It is only because of his personal strength that he bore so many accusations, name-calling, impeachments(!!!), and slander, yet he made our country a utopia. I often compare him to our Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered all the hate and name-calling Himself and suffered on the cross to save us from sin. I am still praying to Him to save us, but you know, there’s a line that goes, “God helps those who help themselves”. I would be a part of anything that rids our country of the vermin in Washington that only wants us to become Marxists. I will NEVER succumb to those traitors!
