On Monday while speaking to reporters, President Joe Biden snapped at a female reporter after she asked a question that was not directly related to his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.
“Mr. President, Veterans Affairs is going to have a mandate for its healthcare–” NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell started to say before Biden rudely interrupted.
“You are such a pain in the neck, but I’m going to answer your question because we’ve known each other so long,” Biden replied. “It has nothing to do with Iraq.”
“Yes, Veteran Affairs is going to, in fact, require that all doctors working in their facilities are gonna have to be vaccinated,” Biden continued.

Scott Jennings, a CNN political commentator took to Twitter to hammer Biden: “Verbally abusive and dismissive of a female journalist. Keeps happening over and over. Why?”
Back in June, Biden unleashed on CNN’s Kaitlan Collins while discussing his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Why are you so confident he’ll change his behavior, Mr. President?” Collins asked.
“I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior,” Biden unleashed. “Where the hell — what do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident?”
“I said …what I said was, let’s get it 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 added. “I am not confident of anything. I am just stating the facts.”
“But given his past behavior has not changed and in that press conference after sitting down with you for several hours, he denied any involvement in cyberattacks. He downplayed human rights abuses. He even refused to say Alexey Navalny’s name,” Collins said. “So how does that account to a constructive meeting, as President Putin put it?”
“If you don’t understand that, you are in the wrong business,” Biden shot back.
Biden’s sexist behavior doesn’t end there. During a visit to the Ford plant, Biden joked about running over a female reporter.
Biden also joked about running over a female reporter earlier this year while he was test driving a Ford truck.
“Mr. President, can I ask you a quick question on Israel before you drive away since it’s so important?” the reporter asked.
“No you can’t. Not unless you get in front of the car as I step on it,” Biden replied. “I’m only teasing.”
