 Biden tells reporter to ‘shush up’ as he tries to calm debt-limit fears at G-7

An irritated President Biden told a reporter to “shush up” Saturday as he tried to calm jittery allies’ fears that his White House will fail to reach a debt-limit deal, potentially plunging the US and the world into economic crisis.

“I still believe we’ll be able to avoid a default and we’ll get something decent done,” Biden told the media as he sat down for a bilateral meeting with Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese during the G-7 economic summit in Hiroshima, Japan.

“This — this goes in stages,” he said of the negotiations between House Republicans and the White House — hours after Friday’s talks broke down acrimoniously, dashing hopes for a smooth resolution of the budget impasse.

But Biden snapped when an Australian reporter tried to interject a query.

“Shush up, OK?” he scolded, before launching into a rambling explanation of the deal-making process.

“I’ve been in these negotiations before,” Biden said.

“What happens is the first meetings weren’t all that progressive. The second ones were. The third one was. And then, what happens is they — the carriers go back to the principals and say, ‘This is what we’re thinking about.’ And then, people put down new claims.”

  • I don't believe in if anymore, if's an illusion.
How long until some reporter just says screw and tells Biden 'No you shut up you senile old fool', especially the Australians who never hold back in their derision of the senile old fool.
