President Joe Biden “jokingly” threatened to kill a pool reporter Tuesday, and in response, America’s mainstream so-called “reporters” erupted in laughter.

While Biden was test-driving an electric Ford truck during a tour of an electric vehicle plant in Michigan, a pool reporter asked for permission to ask the president about the conflict currently engulfing Israel. In response, the president said a “joke.”

“Mr. President, can I ask you a quick question on Israel before you drive away since it’s so important?” the reporter asked.

“No you can’t. Not unless you get in front of the car as I step on it. I’m only teasing,” the president replied.

He then peeled out, prompting the pool reporters to burst into laughter.

Watch:

While the pool “reporters” found his antics amusing, an incredibly large spate of critics, ranging from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists like Glenn Greenwald to Republican Party operatives like Steve Guest and even left-wingers like Max Blumenthal, cried foul.

“As you watch these reporters giggle in delight at Biden’s playing with this car, remember – regardless of your view on Israel/Palestine – that there’s a savage war going on for which Biden bears direct responsibility. Seems, at least, to be bad optics to being (sic) playing with toys,” Greenwald opined on Twitter.

“This would be a five-alarm fire of a news cycle if Joe Biden was a Republican and said this to a reporter,” Guest, who works as an advisor for Sen. Ted Cruz, wrote.

Especially if that Republican was former President Donald Trump.

See a sliver of the responses below:

Notice how even Blumenthal, a fairly left-wing figure, described the pool reporters as “media sycophants fawning over the dear leader.”

All this comes as the president is taking increasing heat from the far-left portion of his base for ostensibly siding with Israel over the Palestinians.

All this also comes as Biden is apparently doing “favors” for Russian President Vladimir Putin only days after Russian hackers shut down a key East Coast pipeline.

“The Biden administration will waive sanctions on the corporate entity and CEO overseeing the construction of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany. … Russian gas currently has to pass through Ukraine on its way to Europe. Bypassing Ukraine with a direct pipeline to Germany is an opportunity for Russia to advance its goal of isolating its former client state, now a fledgling democracy, from Western Europe,” Axios reported Tuesday.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline is being overseen by “Putin crony and former East German intelligence officer Matthias Warnig,” according to Axios.

It’s not clear whether any of the pool reporters at the Ford plant event Tuesday were able to ask Biden about this matter in-between their clapping/laughing sessions.

What does seem obvious, according to Rebeccah Heinrichs of the Hudson Institute, is that it’s “absolutely wild” how much the president is able to get away with, and all presumably because he has a D next to his name.
