Biden’s zinger came as POTUS took the podium in the White House press room Thursday for some rare remarks, fielding questions from journalists in the wake of a special prosecutor calling out his “faulty memory.”
Biden had the old noodle working on this occasion, firing off zingers aimed at the media … and verbally sparring with reporters from multiple outlets.
When Doocy started asking questions about the special counsel report, Biden got testy … and, if we’re being honest, channeled a bit of Donald Trump.
Biden mocked the special counsel, who in his report said JB won’t be charged for his handling of classified information while out of office because 46 is a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”
The Prez jokingly agreed, adding … “I know what the hell I’m doing. I’m President and I put this country back on it’s feet.”
Asked directly how bad his memory is and if he can continue as President, Biden shot back at Doocy with his “memory so bad I let you speak” one-liner … which has some serious meme potential.
Another reporter followed up by asking Biden if his memory has gotten worse … with POTUS saying his memory is “fine” before listing off his legislative accomplishments.
The commander-in-chief also wasn’t happy with the special counsel saying Biden couldn’t remember when his son Beau died.
Biden’s response … “How in the hell dare he raise that. Frankly, when I was asked the question I thought to myself it wasn’t any of their damn business.
Biden groused further … “I don’t need anyone to remind me when he passed away.”
The special counsel says there’s evidence Biden mishandled classified docs, but the prosecutor decided against charging Biden because he wasn’t confident in a guilty verdict due to Biden’s faulty memory and ability to make jurors sympathetic.
