78-year-old Joe Biden griped to the press corps on the Geneva tarmac before heading back to the United States Wednesday evening.
Biden had just snapped at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins for asking a series of impromptu questions about Biden’s meeting with Putin.
Joe Biden did a 180 and said he “trusts” Vladimir Putin – this set off a firestorm after Kaitlan Collins called him out on his abrupt change.
Biden pushed back on the gaggle of reporters on the tarmac and told them he’s sick and tired of them asking questions.
This is after Biden largely avoided the press for his entire 8-day trip overseas.
“You never ask a positive question,” Biden whined.
“I’m not sure if I can answer them,” Biden said to another reporter who inquired, “Can I just ask you quickly about two domestic issues?”

Biden told the reporters he’s not going to negotiate with them before telling them they were the “brightest people in the world.”
The sycophantic press fell in line and didn’t push back on Biden.
One reporter kindly told Biden to board Air Force One so he could go home and rest.
