Last week, Joe Biden gave a speech in Georgia where he said that people who oppose the Democrat voter reform bills are racists.
Yesterday at his first press conference in months, he was asked about this by a reporter and he completely lost it.
He denied that he made these comments and derated the reporter.
FOX News reports:
Biden appears to lose his cool after reporter’s question on divisiveness: ‘Go back and read what I said’
President Biden appeared to lose his composure during a press conference Wednesday when asked by a reporter about his comments comparing those who opposed his voting reform agenda to reviled figures in American history.
“You campaigned, and you ran on a return to civility. And I know that you dispute the characterization that you called folks who would oppose those voting bills as being Bull Connor or George Wallace. But you said that there would be sort of in the same camp?,” Philip Wegmann, reporter for RealClearNews, asked.
Biden interrupted and at one point in his response appeared to raise his voice.
“No, I didn’t say that. Look what I said. Go back and read what I said and tell me if you think I called anyone who voted on the side of the position taken by Bull Connor that they were Bull Connor? And that is an interesting reading of English. Yeah, I assume you got it in the journals because you like to write.”

The reporter was correct. Here’s a flashback to what Biden said:

Biden seems a little unhinged lately, doesn’t he?
