Or Kaitlan Collins.

Of course Putin isn't going to change his public position. He has to play the strongman to his home audience, and backing down after talking to the US president would look weak. But if the world puts enough pressure on him, his *actions* behind the scenes may change. Do these reporters not understand international relations at all? (rhetorical question).

Kaitlan Collins used to work for the Daily Caller. 'Nuff said.
Personally, I don't think there was anything wrong with what he said to her. A little curt, sure, but he was right to push back against her putting words in his mouth.
Nothing compared to how Frontbutt used to treat reporters.

Putin? Change? HA! His misplaced hatred of the US won't allow change.

That's probably why Collins thought it would make a good "gotcha". Except Biden didn't say it.
Meanwhile, Me-again McCain doesn't think he should have apologized, which she's trying to make a "gotcha" -- except Whoopi isn't having it :

I was actually told that line in a gun debate not too long ago... I didn't respond since I was so floored there are still idiots who believe their guns are what keeps them "free."

I think POTUS has run out of fucks to give....


No more Mister Nice POTUS!
Hail the tyrant! Nothing says "most popular president" like interfering with state governments. So happy he's held himself in check and only signed 59 executive orders, 36 presidential memoranda, 116 proclamations, and 22 notices as of 9/10/21 and not some sort of power crazed dictator.

Normally, I'd kind of agree with your sentiment, but, dammit, if the state governors refuse to do their damned jobs, someone has to step up to the plate!

Also,a lot of those executive orders were reversals of TFG's policies. If he hadn't left such a mess, they wouldn't have been necessary. Biden shouldn't have tried to clean it up?
It would also have helped if the Republicans weren't more set on seeing the country go down in flames so they could blame him than get anything done to help Americans (other than themselves) including their own constituents.
"Hall the dictator" indeed. 🙄
And TFG wasn't? And wouldn't have been a dictator for real if he'd gotten a second term?

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The constitution lays out one of the primary responsibilities of the federal government: to promote the general welfare. That would include fighting a pandemic.

Far from overreach, Biden's mandates are the mechanics of taking executive responsibility to save lives. Overreach would be using mandates to damage the general welfare, which is what GOP governors have been doing.

While, at least to my mind, any compulsory vaccination programme should be subject to very strict legal oversight to ensure that it's both reasonable and proportionate, I don't see how the duty of the national government, let alone its power, to order a mandatory vaccination programme, if that's what's absolutely necessary, can be questioned.

No lie detected.
I bet you can guess which reporter it is before you even read the article.

OK, yes, it's Douchey.
