While Joe Biden’s inability to remember his lines and his general weakness are the big stories of his summit with Putin, the press are melting down over something else.

Apparently, media access was not only extremely limited to a few shouted questions at the beginning, but security then stepped in to get a little handsy with the press corps. And for the first time during his presidency, they found a reason to somewhat chastise Biden.

Here’s the harrowing or hilarious account, whichever you prefer.

When given the chance to interject on something as simple as not mistreating the press, Biden just laughs at them. Yeah, that’s gotta sting.

This comes after Biden made the press wait for almost three hours a few days ago to give a 20-minute press conference where he called on pre-selected (likely pre-screened) reporters to field softball questions about Republicans. He has no respect for these reporters, and he’s not afraid to let them know it.
