Biden Tells Reporters They're 'Bad' and He's 'Not Supposed to Be Answering All These Questions'

Western Journal

For a second time in so many weeks, President Joe Biden has indicated to reporters that he is speaking to them longer than someone else seems to have told him to.

While addressing Hamas’ recent rocket attacks on Jerusalem and Israel’s retaliatory missile strikes from the White House on Wednesday, President Biden told reporters they were “bad” and that he couldn’t resist their questions even though he was “supposed” to leave the news conference.

“You guys are bad. I’m not supposed to be answering all these questions. I’m supposed to leave, but I can’t resist your questions,” he appeared to quip as he returned, smiling, to his podium to address the reporters.

Just two weeks ago, Biden said he was “gonna be in trouble” as he returned to his podium, having already tried to leave a news conference.

“I’m sorry. This is the last question I’ll take. I’m really gonna be in trouble,” he told reporters.

And just one week ago, White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted to David Axelrod’s podcast that she didn’t “recommend” Biden’s readiness to answer reporter’s questions.

She explained that Biden’s habit of generously taking questions from reporters “nearly every day” is actually “not something we recommend.”

“In fact, a lot of times we say ‘Don’t take questions,’” she added, stunningly. “But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”

If Biden is going to do what he wants, why does he keep making comments to reporters about how he’s not supposed to be talking to them too much?

I mean … he knows we can hear him, right? Are these jokes, or cries for help?!

Biden does indeed seem unable to help himself from taking reporters’ questions when given the opportunity, and yet he failed to give a solo news conference, setting a well over 100-year record for how long a president has gone without doing so.

When he finally gave one, he had notes in his hands as well as cards to indicate which reporters he should call on, which is simply not common practice for a president during a news conference.

His staffers have literally shooed reporters away from him and the White House once cut his live feed when he offered to take questions from House Democrats during a virtual conference.

Then, on Wednesday, a report dropped revealing the Biden administration frequently requires that it be allowed to approve quotes before they are published when it agrees to allow officials to be interviewed.

It’s really hard to deny that a lot of people in the White House do not want Biden to be speaking to the media, especially when he’s flat-out telling us he’s not supposed to be talking to them for very long.

Restaurant Tapes Sign to Front Door: Proof of Being Unvaccinated Required for Entry

Western Journal

A restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is trolling the fascists so hard, leftist Twitter is about to blow a gasket. As California businesses consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry, one rebellious eatery, Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, recently taped a sign to its door that reads “Proof of being unvaccinated required.” Underneath this warning is an image of a broken syringe and the declaration, “We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity. Thank you for pondering.” Basilico’s has a history of thumbing its nose at California’s far-reaching coronavirus mandates. Last year, when the state shut down indoor dining, Basilico’s stayed open, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later, when the state issued a mask mandate, Basilico’s declared itself a mask-free zone and required patrons to remove their face coverings. The new sign is just the latest jab at the powers that be, and it is a hilarious one at that. It is clearly a gag, as it is impossible to prove one is not vaccinated, and an employee confirmed to the dismayed Times that the restaurant is not, in fact, checking anyone’s vaccination status. Of course, it was all too much for Twitter leftists, many of whom seem to be under the impression that the unvaccinated are keeling over and dying in the streets and that this novel inoculation is the only thing keeping the more enlightened Americans from doing so themselves. This restaurant down the street from me in Huntington Beach is asking that diners show proof they have **not** been vaccinated. Partisan politics has broken so many brains. Get me off this ride. pic.twitter.com/GSFVqNMiEX — Billy Binion (@billybinion) July 27, 2021 Good morning. Happy Tuesday. ICYMI “proof of being UNvaccinated” is actually a death certificate. And dead people don’t eat at Basilico’s Huntington Beach or any restaurants. Anti-American stupidity…
