Nobody Messes With Joe. Except Jason Mattera, Who Now Lives in His Head Rent-Free

Joe Biden’s office has complained to the Senate press gallery about a confrontation the vice president had with a conservative journalist last week on Capitol Hill.
Biden aides asked whether Senate rules were broken in the wake of the contentious exchange between the vice president and the reporter.
Jason Mattera, who works for Human Events, a conservative magazine, used a pretext to catch Biden off guard in a Senate hallway and grill him on claims the vice president has made about jobs legislation.
Biden’s office has also contacted the standing committee of correspondents, which oversees the gallery, regarding whether Mattera broke the rules by ambushing him.
Heather Rothman, the chairwoman of the gallery’s standing committee, said the matter is under review.
“We’re aware of the concerns,” said Rothman, a reporter for BNA. “It’s being discussed.
“We’re aware this occurred and the vice president’s office [has made] contact,” she added, noting the standing committee itself hasn’t met to deliberate the issue.
Here’s the video of Jason going after the VPOTUS, Whiny Joe.
Biden’s incessant whining about getting asked a tough question regarding his own ridiculous sales pitch on Obama’s jobs bill — pass it or hide ya kids, hide ya wife, ’cause there’s gonna be some rapin’ up in here — is just drawing more attention to it.
The fact that the First Amendment is Mattera’s shield, and he’s well within the undercover tactics frequently deployed by the MSM, is just icing on the cake. Keep complaining, Joe.
