A reporter tried to ask Joe Biden a question or two today from afar, but he wasn’t in a mood to answer at all:
Reporter shouts a question about COVID.
PEOTUS says let's talk tomorrow.
Reporter asks "Why not right now?"
Biden jokes: "Because I don't like ya–that's the reason." https://t.co/jEILEje0Bm

“Because I don’t like ya”?

It sounded like Biden tried to save it real quick with an “I’m only joking” follow-up, but maybe someday we’ll know it wasn’t a joke if Joe calls them the “fake news media.”
Suddenly the Media knows when it's a joke …interesting. ?

Weird, right? Biden should at least be thankful for all the softballs the press has tossed his way lately.
The love affair between Biden and the media didn’t last very long ??♀️

CNN’s Brian Stelter previously anticipated a return to “normal relations between president and press corps,” but we’re not sure the love-fest will go back to Obama-era levels.

If this was Trump, it wld be running on loop on MSM globally https://t.co/cNgYZod3hP

The MSM triggering would be off the chart as usual. But Biden will get a pass for now, and probably forever.
And then there’s the acronym:
PEOTUS isn't a thing. https://t.co/gLsntZ21q0

“PEOTUS”? That’s… interesting.
