That kindly “Uncle Joe” persona this administration is trying to sell to the American people is starting to fall apart at the seams.
Anyone who has followed Joe Biden in his career knows he has a short temper and nasty streak that can match up with the best of them.
Joe seems to have an even shorter trigger now, and the stories are starting to surface that Uncle Joe is capable of unleashing some very foul-mouthed rants when the mood strikes.
Joe Lashes Out
Having grown up on the east coast, I am very familiar with both the history and tempers of Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
The difference between the two only goes as far as how both have been presented and perceived.
Donald Trump made a career off his temper, most notably by his catchphrase on “The Apprentice.”
Joe Biden has always been portrayed as a kind and gentle man; only those who have seen him behind the scenes know far better.
Biden has always been short-tempered and downright nasty at times, stories of which are finally getting out about him, although the media temper them with comparisons to Trump and disclaimers.
Staff members are now telling tales of how Joe Biden hangs up on people and goes on profanity-laced outbursts during phone calls and meetings.
It is not just lower aides that feel his wrath, either, as stories are now blowing up all over the Internet that Secretary Becerra found himself on the wrong end of a Biden rant when he did not give Joe the right answer about taking care of migrant children.
We saw just a bit of this on the campaign trail, most notably when a worker told Biden that he worked for him.
Biden rebuked one of his own staff members, basically telling her to shut up, then told the worker he was “full of sh**.”
That is the REAL Joe Biden folks, and with all the pressure he has on him now, just a few pokes at the right moment and he will start to really show his true colors.
