President Joe Biden got snippy with a Finnish reporter who was asking about assurances that the U.S. would remain a reliable NATO partner in the years to come — Finland formally joined NATO back in April.
But it’s not just his cantankerous nature that stood out, but his somewhat bizarre remark to the reporter that she could not guarantee that she was “going to be able to go home tonight.”
The exchange came during a joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, and the 80-year-old U.S. president said he “absolutely guaranteed” it before seconds later saying that “no one can guarantee the future.”
“I absolutely guarantee it. There is no question. There’s overwhelming support from the American people. There’s overwhelming support from the members of the Congress, both House and Senate. In both parties, notwithstanding the fact there are some extreme elements of one party, we will stand together,” Biden said, getting in a prerequisite shot at Republicans.

He noted that U.S. security was linked to the unanimity with Europe, before adding, “And so, this is — you know, no one can guarantee the future, but this is the best bet anyone could make.”
The reporter had a second question for President Niinistö: “Hearing this answer that no one can guarantee a future, are you worried that the political instability in U.S. will cause issues in the Alliance in the future?”
An annoyed Biden jumped in with a response even though the question was not directed at him.
“Let me be clear: I didn’t say we didn’t guarantee — we couldn’t guarantee the future. You can’t tell me whether you’re going to be able to go home tonight. No one can be sure what they’re going to do,” he snapped. “I’m saying as sure as anything can possibly be said about American foreign policy, we will stay connected to NATO — connected to NATO, beginning, middle, and end. We’re a transatlantic partnership. That’s what I’ve said.”
Biden experienced what has become a normal occurrence at one point during the press conference, having a momentary brain malfunction:

Oh, and to add to his creepy portfolio, the president was drawn to a small child while in Helsinki and proceeded to mockingly nibble at the child’s back — much to the toddler’s annoyance.
Biden is a weird dude
