VIDEO: Biden Refuses To Take Foreign Policy Questions Because He’d Rather Talk About ‘Happy Things, Man’

Democrat President Joe Biden refused to take questions from the press concerning his policy on the region of Afghanistan during a press conference on Friday, explaining that he’d rather talk about “happy things,” and rambling about the supposed successes of his administration at a time when many Americans are paying inordinately high prices for gas and food.

When a reporter asked about Afghanistan, Biden scowled and shot back, “I wanna talk about happy things, man.” Unlike his predecessors, the President received surprisingly little pushback from the press on this issue, and went on to monologue about all the things he’s believes his regime has accomplished instead.

 “I’m not going to answering any more questions on Afghanistan,” Biden continued. “Look, it’s the 4th of July, I’m concerned that you guys are asking me questions that I’ll answer next week, but it’s the holiday weekend, and I’m gonna celebrate it, there’s great things happenin’, economy’s growin’ faster than any time in forty years, we’ve got a record number of new jobs, COVID deaths are down ninety percent, wages are up faster than any time in fifteen years, we’re bringin’ our troops home, all across America people are going to ballgames and doin’ good things, this is a good – I’ll answer all your negative questions, not negative, your legitimate questions.”

In June, Biden said that journalists are always asking him negative questions and have a “negative view of life”:

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave,” Biden said of his exchange with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, during which he yelled “What the hell do you do all the time” and admonished her that she was in the “wrong business.”

Biden also elaborated on the reasoning for his outburst, stating, “Look, to be a good reporter, you’ve gotta be negative. You’ve gotta have a negative view of life, okay, it seems to me, the way you all – you never ask a positive question . . . the thing that always amazes me about the questions – and I apologize for having been short about this before – if you were in my position, would you say ‘Well, I don’t think man, anything is gonna happen, it’s gonna be really rough,’ you’d guarantee nothing happens. You guarantee nothing happens.”
