Biden Snaps at Reporter: I'll ‘Get in Trouble’ with Staff - WATCH
Biden embarrasses America again
Democrat Joe Biden snapped at a reporter after being asked a basic question about U.S. policy during Sunday's press conference at the G7.
Despite being the so-called leader of the free world, Biden said he was going to “get in trouble” with his staff over the simple question.
Biden then took an additional question from a reporter who was not on the list as he called on reporters, saying, “I’m going to get in trouble with my staff.”
“You have often said repeatedly that ‘America is back,’” the reporter said.
“At the same time, you’ve kept in play some Trump-era steel and aluminum sanctions."
"And I wanted to ask you: When you’re having these conversations with European allies who are very concerned about these sanctions, how do you justify that? And what are your plans for —"
“A hundred and twenty days,” Biden snapped.
“Give me a break. Need time.”
But Biden has been president for 145 days, not 120 days.

Biden said earlier in the conference:
“I’m sorry, I’m going to get in trouble with staff [if] I don’t do this the right way,” reading off what appeared to be a piece of paper and called on reporters.

Earlier, Biden was reminded by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson of something that had just happened moments before, which prompted world leaders to laugh at him.
In the clip, Johnson introduced South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who was the only black leader in the room.
Biden then introduced the president of South Africa while pointing at him in a manner that suggested he didn't know he had just been introduced.
“…to say how pleased I am to welcome those who have just joined us in some pretty spectacular weather,” Johnson said.
“With them, Prime Minister Modi, President Ramaphosa, President Moon…”
“And the president of South Africa,” Biden interjected.
“And the president of South Africa, as I said early on,” Johnson responded.
“Oh, you did?” Biden asked.
Biden is embarrassing America again.
