During his first day in office, President Joe Biden had promised that he would “fire” anyone who disrespected other administration members.
“I’m not joking when I say this: If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot,” Biden had said. “On the spot. No ifs, and, or buts.”
Of course, he did not miss the opportunity to take a jab at the previous administration, continuing: “Everybody is entitled to be treated with decency and dignity. That’s been missing in a big way for the last four years.”
He had then added that what he was saying was “not hyperbole” and that he expected “absolute certitude” with ‘honesty and decency.”
But what if he does it?
A recently published report by the New York Times claims that Biden regularly snaps at his aides. Referring to Biden as “a president with a short fuse, who is obsessed with getting the details right,” he then explained that Biden demands lots of details whenever he makes decisions.
However, when he gets frustrated by anything, be it “responses laced with acronyms or too much policy minutiae,” he would then lash out at his aides and advisers in outbursts that were “often laced with profanity.”
“Let’s talk plain English here; he will often snap,” the report said, before later adding that Biden is also “quick to cut off conversations” and that he “even occasionally hangs up the phone on someone who he thinks is wasting his time.”
Of course, he can’t “fire” himself now, can he?
