Biden held a press conference today touting the new jobs report.
It seems impressive enough to “add” 850,000 jobs, except that it’s truly President Trump’s economy.
And instead of “new jobs,” people are heading back to work.
Biden used the numbers as an opportunity to jump up to the podium.
But he wasn’t prepared for the “negative” questions thrown his way.

Biden snaps at reporters after asking two questions on Afghanistan withdrawal:

Around 12 minutes into the press conference is when Biden gets triggered by a question about Afganistan.
He says at first, “We wanna talk about happy things, man!”
The second question about Afganistan sends him into dementia rage-territory, as Biden snaps:
I’m not going to answer any more questions about Afganistan. Look, It’s Fourth of July. I’m concerned that you guys are asking me questions that I’m going to answer next week. It’s the holiday weekend and I’m going to celebrate it.
It would be nice to think he’s too preoccupied with putting America first to answer legitimate questions.
Except, he doesn’t think they are legitimate, and he’s not that busy.
Maybe Biden didn’t have a long enough notecard on Afganistan?
Whatever the cause of his snap, he ends with a Freudian slip at the end when he says the following:
“People are doing good things, I’ll be answering all your negative questions, I mean legitimate questions.”
Is he getting overwhelmed at the length of the press conference, sending the signal that he needs to be back in his basement?
Or is Biden deflecting difficult questions because he isn’t in charge?
Notice: Tucker Carlson Show will no longer call it the Biden Administration, since Joe clearly not in charge.

You can watch the clip from YouTube starting at 12:00 minute to spare yourself from the train wreck:
And we are supposed to believe this guy got over 80 million votes when he can barely get 17,000 views and 300 likes?
Surprisingly, even left-leaning The Hill reported that Biden was “testy” with questions:
President Biden on Friday hailed a new report showing the U.S. added 850,000 jobs in June, describing it as “historic progress” that he attributed to his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package signed into law in March.
He also grew impatient while fielding several questions about the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, defending it as a “rational” plan in an exchange with reporters.
“I’m not going to answer any more questions on Afghanistan. Look, it’s Fourth of July,” Bided said. “I’m concerned that you guys are asking me questions that I’ll answer next week. But this is a holiday weekend. I’m going to celebrate it. There’s great things happening.”
Asked if he was confident he would get his agenda passed, Biden said it was impossible to be certain about the fate of his agenda.
“C’mon guys. Have you ever been confident about anything with guarantee? Who wants to put money on anything that Congress is going to do,” he said.
“Look, folks, this is a process. This is a process. I love you guys, but it is a process and I don’t know what you want me to say,” Biden answered. “Look, all I know what to do — and I really mean this — is do my best to lay out what I think the country has to do, be as persuasive as I can, and hope and thus far it seems to be working a little bit.”
Biden opened his remarks by talking up the jobs report.
“This is historic progress, pulling our economy out of the worst crisis in 100 years, driven in part by our dramatic progress in vaccinating our nation and beating back the pandemic, as well as other elements of the American Rescue Plan,” Biden said in remarks from the White House hours after the jobs report was released.
“Put simply, our economy is on the move and we have COVID-19 on the run,” he said.
The economic news offered a boost for the president, exceeding expectations and demonstrating further rebound of the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden said it was critical that his administration keep the pace of the jobs growth to return the U.S. to full employment. He also used the venue as an opportunity to push for the passage of his long-term economic agenda, the bipartisan infrastructure deal he agreed to last week and his American Families Plan.
“None of this is guaranteed to continue though, unless we finish our work,” he said. “Now is the time to accelerate the progress we have been making.”
Biden said his proposals would both create good-paying middle-class jobs and help America become more competitive against other countries in the 21st century.
The White House says that the figures give the administration new momentum as Biden tries to pass the rest of his economic agenda, something that will be difficult given the slim Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.
Is Biden losing it with his strange outbursts from normal questions?

🤔Another sign of his cognitive decline? Dementia patients have difficulty making decisions and become belligerent.

One thing is for certain, Biden definitely has President Trump to thank for any glowing jobs report.
