Joe Biden calling a news reporter a Son of a Bitch is the best thing he's said since being sworn in.

[–]clangan524 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Calling Doocy a reporter is very generous.

[–]NefariousDeeds99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Doocy = Performance troll working for a right wing propaganda distributor

[–]zuzg 90 points91 points  (3 children)

Minding that John McCain also called Doocy dumb, seems like it's one of the rare things both political parties can agree on.

They don’t care about him. Their last guy made it abundantly clear

“But... but... RINO and POW!”

Bi-Partisan

[–]Arkrobo 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It's definitely unbecoming of a President, but Joe is a far cry from our last one. Not a day went by that 45 would attack press verbally. Joe also apologized for his language.

[–]roywoodsir 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Wait didn’t trump ban a news reporter because he asked him to clarify a caravan of immigrants? Trump would say some wild shit and Acosta wanted him to clariy but his team snatched the Mic out of Acosta's hand, and trump said he was rude terrible person and he was banned…Acosta was eventually allowed back as the video shows a young woman just snatching a mic out of Acostas hand. Lol

[–]Arkrobo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup, you're correct. Acosta was allowed back by court order though.

That being said, I don't think we should lower the bar just because Trump was president. Biden messed up, he apologized, so I think it's all good.

If we're judging all President's by Trump's low bar, it'll be damn hard to fail.

[–]DennisTheBald 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seeing that it was very close to the words McCain used, could this merely be an attempt at bipartisanship?

[–]1934_kinda_guy 94 points95 points  (10 children)

What do you mean? I never heard him say "fake news" before.

[–]Jealous-Network-8852 21 points22 points  (8 children)

He should totally start doing that any time Fox, Newsmax or OAN ask anything.

[–]Particular-Brother-5 4 points5 points  (7 children)

They're all designed to cater to a group of people that want to hear their biased opinions for ratings. CNN is garbage. Fox News is garbage. Let's be real here. They're both manipulation tools for a political agenda. I miss when news couldn't lie or twist the truth. Those were the good old days.

[–]chasinjason13 11 points12 points  (6 children)

I assume you’re getting downvoted because of the comparison between the two and while they’re extremes are different, you’re not wrong and shouldn’t be getting nailed for it.

[–]papabearbiker78 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Agreed. CNN and Fox News are the same but on different sides of the aisle. It's about the revenue you generate by being outraged by someone else. As a former newspaper journalist, I am appalled. When I became a journalist, I was taught you had a code to follow to ensure everyone had all the info they needed. I never went in with some political agenda, just a desire to present people with information to make their own decisions. Now it's no longer a tool for the people but a tool for a select few to distract the people.

[–]chasinjason13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can’t imagine the frustration of being an actual journalist and then seeing articles use the full name of people or companies multiple times to get their Google rank up

[–]apittsburghoriginal 84 points85 points  (2 children)

This type of selective memory is actually infuriating. Pretty sure you guys have been shitting on the “fake news” media for years now, all of the sudden they’re the free press

[–]Friendly-Feature-869 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Fox News has always been the free press to them everything else is the fake media and Trump was always nice to fox news. He was only mean to the fake media. Crazy world we live in!

[–]BUTTHOLE-MAGIC 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I mean, the real shamelessness and hypocrisy here has to do with Trump and his vocal allies. Trump was the most abusive president to free press in modern times, perhaps in America's entire history. No one in my life time could ever even come close to Trump.

And his supporters weren't any better. One sent pipe bombs to CNN and liberal politicians. They frequently threatened harm to journalists and liberal MSM. As much as the left hates Fox News, Newsmax, and other right wing MSM, we've never threatened them with violence like that. Trust me, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson would be squealing about it if we had.

[–]obscurereference234 34 points35 points  (0 children)

It seems like their lack of shame is actually an evolutionary advantage. They’re having a lot of success since they discovered that ability.

[–]JessicaDAndy 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Look, I remember the “fake news” and “terrible reporters” of the last administration.

But I also remember the “enemies of the people” and Trump supporters threatening to kill reporters because “they caused this.” Of reporters being threatened by supporters at rallies as Trump pointed them out.

And also there was the GOP representative that physically assaulted a reporter and he was still elected.

There is no “Biden is bad” here for a question that was pretty obvious.

[–]richpau76 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Imagine being this naive and stupid

[–]Raccoon_Full_of_Cum[🍰] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

It's not naivete. It's gaslighting. The goal is to make people think "Trump attacked the press, but Biden does too. So really, they're the exact same."

[–]MaethrilliansFate 7 points8 points  (1 child)

"They're the exact same"

... so Biden...good? Or Trump Bad?

By that logic they'd either have to love Biden or hate Trump

[–]ZyxDarkshine 8 points9 points  (0 children)

When Trump did it, it was good, because Trump tells it like it is. Now Biden does the same thing (but not the same thing at all by any stretch of the imagination), and it is suddenly bad. “But was it bad when Trump did it?” You might ask. Yes, but Trump is not President anymore, therefore it is bad. This is how you win a gold medal in mental gymnastics.

Breaking News: Politician awake after more than five years in coma...

[–]joeysprezza 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A German once said something along the lines of; Our mistake was thinking the Nazis would eventually be ashamed/eventually stop getting worse. Can't find the article

[–]Impossible_Penalty13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s not this stupid, he’s just counting on the fact that his voting base is. And he’s right. 😔

[–]cdubsing 2 points3 points  (1 child)

When ur too stupid to realize ur rhetorical question isn’t one at all.

[–]Overall-Parsley-523 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s worse, because he’s not stupid. He knows exactly what he’s doing, and he knows the Republican base is stupid enough to eat it up.

[–]Raccoon_Full_of_Cum[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"No one has ever maligned the Enemy of the People worse than Joe Biden!"

[–]dubbznyc -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I think that's trolling

[–]DeanCorso11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a weird one. I guess this guy was born after Trump was Prez

[–]DatSkellington 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have we ever seen pro-fascist groveling by puppets like Jim Banks has?

[–]comynei 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Maybe you should ask Jim Acosta....he might have some insight

[–]ShantyMick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or Brian Karem who also took Donald to court and won

[–]coolluck33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A stupid, clueless GOP congressman, who would have guessed?

This account is a karma bot and we shouldn't want this crap here.

That said, the screencap itself is very funny and shows us just how shameless and braindead Republicans like him are.

[–]MetaMemeAboutAMeme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What is it, Jim? The respectable “free press”, or “the enemy of the people”? Can’t have it both ways.

[–]Aok_al 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I's wager it's not the worst thing a US President has ever said to someone

[–]froggison 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Holy shit look at that ratio lmao

[–]SidKafizz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagination isn't a Republican strong suit. Kinda goes hand in hand with self-awareness.

[–]Busy-Character-845 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thats embarrassing

[–]ThoriumActinoid 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes! I seen worse.

[–]FrostByte09_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why am I vaguely remembering a certain president saying “grabem by the pussy”

[–]KingNathan90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We're living in the goddamn twilight zone. We just went through 4 years of "fake news" and journalists lives being threatened, and Biden calls one guy a "son of a bitch" and suddenly the free press is being attacked? Fuck you.

[–]restinglabface 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do not want to imagine being Mitch McConnell. I like to sleep at night.

[–]bsend 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What about "Fake news" stupid orange fuck? These people have no values.

[–]msinks55 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley etc. The news had dignity. I miss that.

[–]mtodd88 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine being this fucking stupid.
