Guest post by Conservative Brief – A new book about Joe Biden makes some alarming claims about his behavior behind the scenes, specifically during the 2020 campaign trail.
The media desperately wants everyone to believe that Biden is a soft-spoken, quiet man, but a new book says he is the exact opposite when the cameras are not around.
According to the new book, entitled, “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency,” reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes reveal an incident where Biden lashed out over Kamala Harris during the 2020 Democratic primaries.
There were many rumors floating around that Biden was furious with Harris for calling him out at the debate.
The authors confirm the reports and say Biden was “pissed” and “steaming inside.”
He was so angry that during a commercial break, Biden turned to Pete Buttigieg and lashed out at Harris’s stunt saying: “This is just a bunch of bullsh*t.”
A new book on the 2020 election raises serious questions about President Joe Biden’s temperament, citing the “cranky” septuagenarian’s “willingness to unleash” his fiery temper, especially at the expense of young staffers who dared to speak their minds.
Biden’s temper, and his willingness to unleash it in small group settings, was one reason the people closest to him often avoided pushing him too hard to change his ways or take a particular course of action,” write journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes in Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.
Biden’s so-called Irish temper, a term the president himself often uses despite its racially charged nature, tended to erupt at younger aides. Greg Schultz and Kate Bedingfield, both in their thirties, were “most likely to get their ears boxed for pushing back on Biden’s ideas,” the authors write.
When he wasn’t screaming at them, Biden “had a tendency to talk down” to the “delicate” youngsters.
The authors of the book explained how during a 2019 meeting, Biden became “visibly irritated” and “hollered at” and “unloaded on Schultz,” after he ironically told Biden to “adjust his tone with younger voters.”
“Ultimately, Biden made his own decisions, and got cranky when they were made for him,” the authors explained.
“Nobody wants to suffer one of his epic tongue-lashings.”
The candidate “didn’t like to be questioned,” which is why even his senior aides “conspicuously avoided confrontation” in fear of Biden’s rage.
Biden’s volatile temper almost got the best of him, the authors report, during a July 2019 primary debate, when his future running mate, Kamala Harris, attacked him for befriending racist senators and promoting racist legislation. Biden was “pissed” and “steaming inside” following Harris’s broadside, which would prove to be the high-water mark of her presidential campaign. During a commercial break, a seething Biden turned to his podium neighbor Pete Buttigieg and stammered, “This is just a bunch of bullshit!”
Lucky also contains new details about Biden’s tumultuous relationship with former president Barack Obama, who was “enamored with” failed candidate Beto O’Rourke in the early stages of 2020 primary but skeptical of Biden’s ability to win. The New York Times previously reported that Obama had warned fellow Democrats not to “underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.”
A report earlier this week revealed that Biden sent his two dogs back to his family home in Delaware after one of his German Shepherds was involved in a “biting incident” with a White House security agent.
Three-year-old Major had been displaying aggressive behavior including jumping, barking, and charging at White House staff and security.
