President Biden’s recent speech from the White House on the first anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act revealed both his fury and his known tendency to express frustration when things don’t align with him. Here’s what happened.
The Anniversary Speech
During the anniversary speech, President Biden forcefully refuted claims of America’s failure, emphasizing the nation’s winning spirit.
America Is Not Failing
He said, “They’re telling us America is failing. Let me tell you, they’re dead wrong. They’re dead wrong. America isn’t failing. America is winning. And I’ve said a thousand times … there is no quit in America.”
The Tone Changed
His tone then shifted to anger as he passionately exclaimed that it had never been a good bet to bet against America.
Biden Has Achieved All Objectives
He shouted, “Name me a single objective we’ve ever set out to accomplish that we’ve failed on. Name me one, in all of our history. Not one!”
It’s Never Good to Bet Against America
“It’s never been a good bet to bet against America, and it’s still not a good bet today,” he added.
Biden Is Known to Blow Up
While the president’s emotional speeches are not new, insights from White House insiders reveal another side of Biden’s temperament.
He Would Yell at Others
Reports suggest that the president can become snippy and frustrated with his staff, using strong language to express his disappointment.
The Air Turned Blue
Accounts describe him yelling phrases like “God d*****, how the f*** don’t you know this?!” and “Don’t f****** bulls*** me!”
No One Is Safe From Him
One administration official mentioned that no one is safe from these outbursts, not even senior advisors.
Avoid Meeting Alone
Behind closed doors, Biden’s quick-trigger temper has prompted some staffers to avoid solo meetings with him, often bringing a colleague as a shield against the brunt of his anger.
He Would Keep Questioning
Furthermore, it’s reported that the president will persistently question aides on various topics until it’s evident they don’t have the answer, an approach that some consider meticulous and others dub as “stump the chump” or “stump the dummy.”
Being Yelled at Was Good
Interestingly, being yelled at by the president was considered a good thing in the White House.
“Being yelled at by the president has become an internal initiation ceremony in this White House, aides say — if Biden doesn’t yell at you, it could be a sign he doesn’t respect you,” the report claimed.
The President Takes His Responsibilities Seriously
Ted Kaufman, Biden’s former chief of staff during his time as a U.S. senator, pointed out that the president takes his responsibilities seriously.
Kaufman said, “It’s not to embarrass people, it’s because he wants to get to the right decision. Most people who have worked for him like the fact that he challenges them and gets them to a better decision.”
Social Media Users Expressed Their Views
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “I can’t be a hypocrite, I kinda yelled today too when I filled my car up with $4.79 a gallon gas.”
He Yells Because He Doesn’t Agree
Another user commented, “He yells at his people until they make a better decision. One that he agrees with! If they don’t agree with him, then they’re ostracized!”
A third user added, “When he blows up you know he’s telling more lies.”
