'If you can’t field questions from the media without losing your temper, maybe you’re in the wrong business,'

A left-wing reporter told Democrat Joe Biden that he could be in the "wrong business" after he snapped over basic questions from the media.

New York Magazine writer Olivia Nuzzi tweeted:

“If you’re the most powerful person in the world and you can’t field questions from the media without losing your temper, maybe you’re in the wrong business."

“What kind of example does it set for other countries when the president of the United States insults a member of the free press on an international stage for asking a fair question in good faith?”

Nuzzi’s tweet referred to Biden's outburst against CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins after she asked him a question following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Why are you so confident he’ll change his behavior, Mr. President?” Collins asked.

“I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior,” Biden erupted.

“Where the hell — what do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident?”

“I said … what I said was, let’s get it straight, I said what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world,” he continued.

WATCH:

“I am not confident of anything. I am just stating the facts.”

“But given his past behavior has not changed and in that press conference after sitting down with you for several hours, he denied any involvement in cyberattacks."

"He downplayed human rights abuses. He even refused to say Alexei Navalny’s name,” Collins pushed.

“So how does that account to a constructive meeting, as President Putin put it?”

“If you don’t understand that, you are in the wrong business,” Biden blasted back.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave,” Biden later said before he boarded Air Force One.

Biden also took another shot at the press, saying, "Look, to be a good reporter, you’ve got to be negative.”

“You’ve got to have a negative view of life, it seems to me, the way you all … You never ask a positive question,” Biden continued.

CNN correspondent Jeff Zeleny later said the media has “not seen” Biden “answer questions” like the one Collins asked, “without his aides screaming at him to stop.”

“I have never seen a president — covering the last four of them — who is so protected by his aides in terms of often not wanting him to answer some questions,” Zeleny continued.
