Joe Biden folded like a deck of cards when a reporter had the audacity to ask him an actual question.
CBS reporter, Bo Erickson was trying to get Biden on the record about the battle between over schools opening during the pandemic and teacher unions.
“Mr. Biden, the COVID task force said it’s safe for students to be in class. Are you going to be encouraging unions to cooperate more to bring kids back to classrooms, sir?” Erickson asked.
“Why are you the only guy that always shouts out questions?” Biden responded, sparking laughter from Pelosi.
Biden never answered the question and Erickson was escorted out.

The few “honest” reporters in the media hammered Biden.
“President-Elect Biden asks a good question – why is @BoKnowsNews the only one in the Biden pool tossing questions? Schools, vaccines, stimulus – so many important q’s for both @SpeakerPelosi & @JoeBiden,” CBS News White House correspondent Paula Reid said.
“Shouting questions will again be deemed a bad, disrespectful thing,” The Hill media columnist Joe Concha predicted.
“A completely valid and important question asked in a civil tone…deflected by Biden, who may not have understood it because it wasn’t screened by staff first,” radio host Derek Hunter tweeted.
“Because Bo is trying to do journalism and much of the rest of Biden’s press corps are stenographers,” journalist Zaid Jilani reacted.
Here’s a comparison for you…
Watch how the press behaves as Vice President Pence leaves the room.
Biden would collapse on the floor in the fetal position if he faced that onslaught.
Erickson also caught up with Biden in Delaware and got him on the record over the controversy if Americans should be allowed to attend church.
As the President-elect Biden left church tonight on Delaware, I asked if all Americans should be able to attend religious services during the pandemic?
