While talking about the border crisis during his first press conference as president, Joe Biden said he “should be flattered” by the ongoing migrant surge because they think he is a “nice guy.”
The bizarre comment from Biden came after softball reporter and radical left-wing PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor fawned over Biden, calling him a moral and decent man.
“How do you resolve that tension and how are you choosing which families can stay?” she asked.
“I guess I should be flattered because people are coming because I’m a nice guy, that’s why this is happening,” Biden said.
“Does anybody suggest that there was a 31 percent increase under Trump because they were a nice guy? That’s not the reason they’re coming.” Biden went on to claim.
The Thursday press conference was a dumpster fire to say the least. At one point, Biden claimed that he came into the Senate 120 years ago. The comments came as the President was discussing the filibuster.
“With regard to the filibuster, I believe we should go back to a position of a filibuster that existed just when I came to the senate 120 years ago,” Biden during the press conference.
During the same press conference, Biden stated that he would be running for president in 2024.
“Have you decided whether you are going to run for re-election in 2024?” Nancy Cordes of CBS News asked. “You haven’t set up an election campaign yet as your predecessor had by this time.”
“My predecessor,” Biden said with an awkward laugh. “Needed to. My predecessor. Oh God, I miss him.”
“The answer is yes,” he then said. “My plan is to run for re-election. That’s my expectation.”
