Joe Biden found himself in hot water late Monday afternoon after he snapped at a female reporter.
While speaking to the press in the Oval Office, Biden apparently thought he was only going to get questions related to his meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi.
But when NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked a question regarding Veterans Affairs, Biden cut her off and clearly didn’t appreciate the question.
Below is a transcript of the exchange:
Biden: “ — to help and to deal with ISIS as it arrives. But we’re not going to be, by the end of the year, in a combat mission.”
O’Donnell: “Mr. President, do you think Veterans Affairs — Mr. President, Veterans Affairs is going to have a mandate — “
Biden: “You are such a pain in the neck, but I’m going to answer your question because we’ve known each other for so long. It has nothing to do with Iraq. The answer — “
O’Donnell: “I take that as a compliment, Mr. President.”
Biden: “I’ll answer your question. Yes, Veteran Affairs is going to, in fact, require that all docs working in facilities are going to have to be vaccinated.”
The former White House doctor who served for both Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump has issued a dire warning about Joe Biden.
Ronny Jackson, who now serves as Texas Republican congressman, said that he believes Biden is suffering a cognitive decline and could be on his way out one way or another.
Jackson tweeted out a video clip of Biden referring to a debunked QAnon conspiracy about “sucking the blood out of kids.”
Jackson slammed Biden for the bizarre comments.
Our cities are EXPLODING with drugs & violence because of Democrat “defund the police” policies and the GREAT UNITER Joe Biden deflects to talk about “sucking blood out of kids.” He’s completely LOST it! Needs a cognitive exam NOW!

During an interview on Fox News, Jackson predicted that Biden will either be forced to resign or will face the 25th Amendment regarding whether he’s mentally fit to remain in office.
“And I’ve been saying that it’s only going to get worse, and guess what? We’re watching that happen right before our eyes right now,” Jackson said.
“And I’m at the point right now where, you know, I went from, you know, telling people, we should be concerned about what might potentially be going on, to now saying, hey, what is happening right now?” he rhetorically asked.
“There’s something seriously going on with this man right now. And you know, I think that he’s either gonna, he’s either gonna resign, they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now. There’s some serious stuff going on right now,” he asked.
Jackson speculated that members of Biden’s Cabinet could be discussing whether he’s mentally fit to remain in office.
Something's SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden – and it's only going to get WORSE! It's past the point of embarrassment. He's lost. He's confused. He can barely put a coherent sentence together. He MUST have a cognitive exam and release the results! pic.twitter.com/Pk5Pq2V5Um

Earlier this month, Jackson said that he believes Biden is suffering a cognitive decline and should be tested immediately.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” he said to Fox News.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” he said. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point.”
“You can go back – there are forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented,” he said.
