The White House Press Corps would not have giggled or even smiled if Trump made this remark. Oh, it’s just Joe being Joe!
Normally I would let this go, but I have to point out the hypocrisy of the media whenever I see it.
While weird, President Joe Biden is joking, but just imagine if former President Donald Trump said this.
REPORTER: Mr. President, can I ask you a quick question on Israel before you drive away since it’s so important?
BIDEN: No you can’t. Not unless you get in front of the car as I step on it. I’m only teasing.pic.twitter.com/A3jrsIi5mR

The most disturbing part? The media.
The media cried and whined from their crosses about Orange Man Bad calling them the enemy of the people. The martyred journalists screamed that Orange Man Bad committed violence when he called them fake news.
(Now I have “Eulogy” by Tool in my head!)
Biden tells a female reporter she can only ask a question on Isreal if she steps in front of the truck as he floors it.
The media? Laughter and giggles!
Surely one would think the White House Press Corps would have jumped to protect their own after Biden threatened her. He not only threatened a reporter, but he threatened a female reporter!
But hey! At least we don’t have Orange Man Bad mean tweets!
Then: "Trump said mean things to a CNN reporter"
Now: "Joe Biden wants to run reporters over with a truck, isn't he such a hoot? What a great guy" https://t.co/bPZqJRa5Q9

tbh the craziest part of this is not that Biden threatened to run them over with the car but the fact that the reporters there were just like “oh ok no more questions the man said so!” https://t.co/6c0BMdNraj

Laughing was NOT the appropriate response. If anything, these people should be pissed that Biden wanted to run one of their own over. It was Trump everyone would be like "oMg! oRanGe MaN bAd!" https://t.co/xUEMyH3LNU

Joe Biden: “I’m going to run you over with a pickup truck.”

This would’ve been regarded as a legitimate threat less than a year ago. https://t.co/GyTJbf3awM

Biden joking about running down a reporter for asking about Israel in an F-150 truck is a pretty good tell about just how performative the "how dare he" fainting spells of the past 4 years actually were.
