Axios Tries to Water Down Biden’s Explosive Temper Towards Aides and Staff

Axios Tries to Water Down Biden’s Explosive Temper Towards Aides and Staff

Give me a break.

Alex Thompson at Axios published one of the most lenient and sympathetic pieces to explain that President Joe Biden’s harsh temper behind closed doors is not a big deal.

He is known to lash out at aides and staff:

In public, President Biden likes to whisper to make a point. In private, he’s prone to yelling.

  • Behind closed doors, Biden has such a quick-trigger temper that some aides try to avoid meeting alone with him. Some take a colleague, almost as a shield against a solo blast.
  • The president’s admonitions include: “God dammit, how the f**k don’t you know this?!,” “Don’t f**king bullsh*t me!” and “Get the f**k out of here!” — according to current and former Biden aides who have witnessed and been on the receiving end of such outbursts.

One official said, “No one is safe.”

Biden supposedly went off on then-COVID Czar Jeff Zients when the country didn’t have enough tests when the Omicron variant started to spread.

But Zients is now Biden’s chief of staff.

I guess getting yelled at by the president is “an internal initiation ceremony,” meaning “if Biden doesn’t yell at you, it could be a sign he doesn’t respect you.”

Chris Whipple notes in his book The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House that former press secretary Jen Psaki once said, “I said to [Biden] multiple times, ‘I’ll know we have a really good, trusting relationship when you yell at me the first time.'”

But the anger is expressed in interrogations and not tantrums: “He’ll grill aides on topics until it’s clear they don’t know the answer to a question — a routine that some see as meticulous and others call ‘stump the chump’ or ‘stump the dummy.'”

The Axios report leaves out an important detail. It is well known that elderly people with “cognitive decline” are prone to angry outbursts.

I’m glad Jim Geraghty wrote about this at National Review, too. If you have older loved ones, you probably witnessed the behavior in person:

In a completely unrelated matter, home care specialists for the elderly explain that “cognitive decline can cause aging adults to have sudden outbursts of anger. Symptoms of cognitive decline include memory loss and difficulty understanding basic information. Your loved one might become upset if he or she can’t recall a particular word or remember the name of a familiar place. Your loved one’s anger could also be a sign of dementia, and it’s essential to have him or her evaluated by a physician if you notice serious signs of cognitive decline.”

We’ve seen signs of confusion in Biden.

But we’ve also seen him have outbursts in public. The facade of being a nice guy has fallen throughout his political career, but it’s more noticeable now as president since his handlers have been trying to portray him as a nice grandpa who loves his ice cream.

Yeah the story is fake to make us believe that Uncle Joe is more present then we think. I do believe that he gets angry behind closed doors, but probably for random reasons.

    Bursts of anger, often born out of frustration, are commonplace for those with advancing dementia. Just one more sign ignored by the media.

    The video of Biden with King Chucky today was particularly difficult to watch. Biden looks so feeble shuffling around in a stupor for the world to see.

      My friend’s mother had this thing called Lewy Body Dementia. It sounds similar. Just an observation, because we will never find out the truth about him.

The Dumb-o-crat media can spin this however they want. Rational people understand that corrupt dotard-marionette, Biden, has always been an obnoxious, ornery, vindictive, mean-spirited and belligerent POS — traits that have been exacerbated due to this fool’s obviously accelerating neurological and cognitive decline.

“Tries to Water Down Biden’s Explosive Temper”

That kind doesn’t water down. For that kind of temper, you need a strait Jacket.

Such a demented outburst is easy to verify. If someone would clap hard once during the outburst and FJoe quit and changed affect… bingo. But we already knew that. Soon… very soon… we will see all the “fail safes” gone. (“I’ll teach Putin a lesson… where’s the football”}

Probably gets angry when he finds out it’s actually him and not someone else who crapped in his Depends.

Soon Biden will begin throwing his feces. Can’t wait.

    Watching someone else slide into the world of dementia

    / and the resulting loss of dignity is soooo amusing.

      I couldn’t Bear to watch fur shure. I would gently close my grizzled old eyes and take a sip of Bud Light. After spitting that crap out I would rinse my mouth and have a Pepsi.

He is a sad joke, the kind that nobody laughs at. The worst part is the fact that he represents our nation to the world.

    Screw the rest of the world: the worst part is the suicide mission he has taken our country on. He’s driven us off the cliff and we’re mid-air right not, only seconds from crashing at the bottom.

    And never forget: this is Obama’s third term.

    What I don’t understand is why the other nations’ leaders play along? The ones that have “meetings” must know that something is terribly wrong.. but they stay silent.

      They profit from his and thus our National weakness. There’s an internal conflict within the globalist camp for supremacy within the globalist regime. Very over simplified on one side is continental Europe on the other is a US/UK led group.

This is senility in full display one step away from the black box and making horrible decisiions

He should bark at those pool reporters to get off the Whitehouse lawn.

    He already tried that and the Easter Bunny stopped him dead in his tracks. He was quickly ushered inside and given another injection.

He’s a big liar even compared to most angry,old men.
