What does the leading progressive president have against women, specifically female reporters? A lady asking hard-hitting questions seem to strike an interesting nerve in Joe Biden — a president claiming to fight for gender equality.
His treatment of female members of his administration is notably questionable as well. Kamala Harris and Jen Psaki, arguably the most crucial ladies in the White House, are forced to act as Biden’s personal maid as they trail behind him to clean up his messes.
On Thursday, just one day after a two hour-long press conference, Joe Biden snapped on a female reporter for asking about the tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich shouted a question to Biden as reporters were leaving the South Court Auditorium where the president was meeting with his Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, according to White House press pool reports.
“Why are you waiting on Putin to make the first move, sir?” Heinrich asked.
Biden’s testy response was uncomfortable, if not typical.

However, not everyone thought Heinrich’s question was stupid.
After the exchange, the Fox News reporter shared a tweet from former president Barack Obama White House staff. Brett Bruen, who served Obama as director of global engagement, asked something very similar as he remains critical of Biden’s foreign policy decisions.

Many have noted Biden’s testiness as of late.
Biden snapped at at a reporter on Wednesday after asking about his recent controversial speech on voting rights.
Not only that, his female White House handlers were thrusted in front of media cameras to clean up Biden’s insane gaffes about a “minor incursion” into Ukraine by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
The White House scrambled to clean up after Biden made a statement during the press conference suggesting a “minor incursion” by Russia into Ukraine would prompt a less serious U.S. response.
“President Biden has been clear with the Russian president: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our allies,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki later said.
