As President Joe Biden visited Santa Cruz, California, to view storm-ravaged communities after devastating atmospheric rivers ravaged the area he lost his cool when he was asked about the growing classified document scandal.
In the past few weeks, the Biden team has been embroiled in a scandal over classified documents from his time as vice president being discovered in his DC office and Delaware garage. Despite the special counsel probe that has been launched to investigate the matter, Biden stated bluntly that he had “no regrets” when asked about it.
In a sign of arrogance and defiance, Biden said that “he has no regrets” taking classified data that he was not authorized to take. The President also lost his cool.
A reporter asked, “Mr. President, may I ask you a question about the classified documents, sir? Do you have any regret — regret, sir?”
You know, the only — I will answer the question, but here’s the deal: You know, what quite frankly bugs me is that we have a serious problem here we’re talking about. We’re talking about what’s going on. And the American people don’t quite understand why you don’t ask me questions about that.
But having said that, what’s your question?
The reporter followed up, “Do you have any regret, sir, that you did not reveal the existence of the documents back in November, before the midterms?”
Joe didn’t like that, “Just hang on, okay?”
“Look, as we found — we found a handful of documents that were failed — were filed in the wrong place. We immediately turned them over to the Archives and the Justice Department. We’re fully cooperating and looking forward to getting this resolved quickly,” the President said.
“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets. I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. It’s exactly what we’re doing. There is no there there,” and Biden walked away after striking the podium.
Keep an eye on Biden’s face after he smacks the podium, you can tell the doc scandal has him worried.

Rumors are Biden is preparing to announce he’s running for re-election in February to ward off any Democrat from challenging him. One has to wonder what role this scandal will play. Normally, a President who’s popular inside his party doesn’t have to announce his campaign for re-election so early.
