(TheRedWire.com) – Joe Biden is known as a bit of a hothead. However, what he said to a reporter on Tuesday, May 18, was out of bounds. While behind the wheel of a new Ford F-150 Lightning electric, a reporter asked if she could quickly ask a question about the conflict that’s growing more hostile between Israel and Hamas. Rather rudely, Biden said she couldn’t ask the question unless she got in front of the truck as he stepped on the gas. Of course, the president said he was just joking and then sped away to test drive the vehicle.

Biden was taken to task online for his rude joke. Many were reminded how savagely Trump was taken to task by the media for saying far less in a joking manner. Amy Tarkanian, a former Nevada GOP chairwoman, said his behavior was unbecoming of a president and that if it were Trump, Democrats already would have impeached him.
