Despite the portrayal of President Joe Biden as “a kind, genteel, considerate old man,” it turns out this old man allegedly has a potty mouth that he sometimes uses on his own aides.

On Friday, The New York Times published an anonymously sourced report documenting the president’s behind-the-scenes behavior and, more strikingly, his profanity laced temper tantrums that it appears nobody has been exempt from, even top officials.

During one March incident, the president reportedly even “lashed out” at Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.

“During a meeting on March 30 in the Oval Office, the president lashed out at Xavier Becerra, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, for failing to have answers to his questions about the agency’s ability to take care of migrant children, according to two people familiar with the exchange,” the Times reported.

While the details of the “lashing out” were unspecified, what the Times’ sources had to say about Biden’s behavior toward his own aides suggests it was brutal.

“Avoiding Mr. Biden’s ire during one of his decision-making seminars means not only going beyond the vague talking points that he will reject, but also steering clear of responses laced with acronyms or too much policy minutiae, which will prompt an outburst of frustration, often laced with profanity,” according to the Times.

Yet the Times, a left-wing paper, went on to claim that Biden “never erupts into fits of rage the way President Donald J. Trump did.” But isn’t “an outburst … laced with profanity” a “fit of rage,” or does the definition of a “fit of a rage” change with the president?

In fact, the paper continued its piece by admitting the current president is “quick to cut off conversations” and “even occasionally hangs up the phone on someone who he thinks is wasting his time.”

That doesn’t sound very nice.

The president’s public behavior has sometimes been just as volatile. During his first full briefing with the press in late March, he “got snippy” when a reporter asked him a tough question about the administration’s treatment of illegal alien children.

But apparently, that was Biden in one of his better moments. At various points during the 2020 presidential election, he went off on his own potential voters, calling them “lying dog-faced phony soldiers” and telling them to “vote for someone else.”

Going back to the president’s interactions with Becerra, he’s reportedly expressed anger over, ironically enough, the left-wing HHS director not being radical enough.

“Facing such a historic influx of child migrants, the majority of which are going to be ‘reunited’ with sponsors already in the country, Becerra has reportedly been urging a cautious line, despite his past as someone who pushed left-wing policies on immigration,” Fox News notes.

“Politico reported that the White House has ‘bristled’ at Becerra’s approach as they push HHS to speed up the intake of the tens of thousands of migrant children. Separately, sources told the outlet that he is seen as indecisive and too slow to seize the situation,” according to Fox News.

Privately, Becerra’s reportedly complained about the administration dropping immigration restrictions.

It’s a stunning report given that Becerra is himself a fairly radical left-winger who, as California’s attorney general, had last year threatened to arrest a sheriff for the supposed crime of not respecting the state’s “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens laws.

Yet apparently even he’s felt frustration with Biden’s especially far-left immigration policies.

Under the current administration, America has effectively become an open borders nation, with thousands of illegal aliens streaming across the southern border daily.

In its latest update published earlier this week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that its agents encountered 178,622 border crossers in April alone.

The situation has grown so dire that some border patrol agents “are considering early retirement, while other disgruntled colleagues are buying unofficial coins that say ‘U.S. Welcome Patrol,'” as reported Friday by Reuters.

“We have so many people coming across, and then we’re out there killing ourselves to catch them, rescue them or whatever it is, and then they’re being released. Why even bother?” one agent mulling retirement said to the outlet.
