If Americans needed another example of Joe Biden’s slave-holder elitist mentality, they got one on Saturday. While speaking to reporters, he went off on one who had the temerity to ask him a legitimate news question concerning his illegal extortion of the Ukraine.
Falling behind Warren in Iowa, the backlash over the standard democrat ploy of accusing your opponent of the crimes you personally commit, Biden got angry over a question concerning his family’s sleazy dealings surrounding the foreign company, Burisma Holdings.

Jabbing and pointing with his feeble finger, Biden attacked the reporter who apparently didn’t get the memo about how he’s supposed to suck up to the aging democrat.
Slurring his speech with spittle-flecked indignation, Biden yelled:
“…You should be asking [Trump] the question: Why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader? (pauses for wild finger waving) …if that’s what happened, that’s (inaudible) what happened. You should be looking at Trump! Trump’s doing this because I beat him like a drum! And he’s using an abuse of power, and every element of a presidency to try to do something to smear me! Everybody looked at this, and everybody who’s looked at it said there’s nothing there! Ask the right questions! (reporter tries to get a word in edgewise, fails) Here’s what I know: That Trump deserves to be investigated…”
Apparently, Biden is following the scripted lines concerning the entire ‘whistleblower’ scam promoted and pushed by the leftist media.
The real issue is that Biden was dirty. Biden used extortion to protect his son’s cash machine. And, Biden has used his political office for decades to enrich his family’s coffers.
Now, Biden’s telling reporters exactly what sorts of questions they should ask, determining the “right” and “wrong” ones.
Interestingly, many reporters (even on the left) weren’t too thrilled with the behavior.
David Martosko, the Daily Mail’s Washington guy, was one of the first reporters to point out the sickening behavior:
Pardon me for being all First Amendment-y, but you do *not* get to tell journalists what to ask anyone. You also do not get to decide what the “right” question is, ever. This is not China. https://t.co/fQdU8FylVD

Apparently, Joe’s so used to the press sucking up from his Obama days he can’t help himself now that he’s not drawing the same adoring treatment. He goes into meltdown when one of them wanders off the plantation, telling them what kinds of questions they’re allowed to ask.
Not a way to win the hearts of the media the way Obama did. One can expect he might actually get some bad coverage now, something any savvy politician would know, but not Joe.
