(PatriotWise.com)- President Joe Biden recently got caught on a hot mic, snapping a reporter for asking what he thought was a “stupid question.”
Interesting. Weren’t the Democrats claiming that former President Donald Trump was some kind of dictator for the way he spoke to the press?
Following a mostly-scripted press conference, President Biden was asked by Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich about heightening tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
“Why are you waiting on Putin to make the first move?” Heinrich asked, clearly referencing the fact that President Biden has taken zero pre-emptive action to stop Russia from advancing into Ukraine.
Biden, who believed his mic was no longer active, could be heard saying “What a stupid question.”

Is it really a stupid question, though?
Even Russian dissident Alexei Navalny recently criticized President Joe Biden for his horrific handling of the Russia problem, accusing the president of acting like a “frightened schoolboy” in a written exchange with Time Magazine.
Heinrich wrote on Twitter that audio engineers managed to capture the president’s nasty comment as reporters were being ushered out by his staff.

And as usual, Biden had that smarmy grin on his face as the press – still wanting to ask important questions about the economy and America’s national security – were forced out by security.
