Democrat President Joe got into another heated argument with CNN reporter and former Daily Caller employee Kaitlan Collins over Biden’s praise for disgraced former Governor Andrew Cuomo, who stepped down this week amid sexual harassment allegations. Biden and Collins have clashed and yelled angrily at each other before.
“Can I quickly follow up on your comment on Governor Cuomo?” Collins demanded during a presser on Tuesday. “Can you really say he has done ‘a hell of a job’ if he’s accused of sexually harassing women on the job?”
“Look, you’re asking two different questions,” Biden shot back. “Now, I asked the substantive – should he remain as governor is one question. And women should be believed when they make accusations that are on the face of them if they make sense, and investigate them, and if they’re investigated and the judgement was made that what they said was correct. That’s one thing. The question is, did he do a good job on infrastructure? That was the question. He did.”

“The question was how he did as a governor,” Collins snapped. “He was accused of sexually harassing.” She then asked Biden to if he could separate Cuomo’s policies from his personal conduct, to which Biden replied, “No, I’m not, I’m trying to answer a specific question. I was asked a specific question. What do you want to ask me specifically?”
In June, Biden yelled “what the hell do you do all the time” at Collins and told her she was ‘in the wrong business,” as reported by National File:
“Why are you you so confident [Putin] is going to change his behavior, Mr. President,” Collins demanded.
Biden swung around and glared at the reporter. “I’m not confident I’m going to change his behavior,” he snapped. “What the hell? What do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident? I said, I said, what I said was, let’s get it straight, I said what will change their behavior is the [unintelligible] world reacts to to their behavior that diminishes their standing. I’m not confident of anything, I’m just stating the facts.”
Collins continued to antagonized the President, arguing, “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 cyber attacks, he downplayed human rights abuses, he even refused to say Alexei Navalny’s name, so how does that account to a constructive meeting as President Putin – ”
Biden then smiled and interjected, “If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business.” He then turned and walked away as the gaggle of journalists yelled a torrent of questions at his back in vain.
Biden went on to accuse corporate journalists of having “a negative view of life.”
