It was his very first day on the job, Inauguration Day, when President Biden established the Pleasant Treatment of People Act. He was so serious about it that he threatened to fire new staff he was willing to swear in if they violated the code.

“I’m not kidding when I say this, if you ever work with me and I hear you treat another co-worker with disrespect, talk to someone, I promise I’ll fire you on the spot,” he said. Biden said. “On the spot. No ifs, ands or buts.”

He had said something similar during the campaign.

But as his polling tank and even liberals question his leadership, Biden is forgetting his own ways. In less than a week, he attacked three different reporters who were asking questions he didn’t like.

BIDEN CALLS OUT FOX NEWS’ PETER DOOCY AFTER CURSE OUT PRESS CONFERENCE TO CLEAR THE AIR

It started during his press conference last Wednesday, when Biden answered a question from RealClearNews reporter Philip Wegmann about civility with some incivility.

“You ran on a return to civility,” he was told. And then, Wegmann pointed out, Biden went on to characterize those who opposed his ballot bills — namely, all Republicans in Congress — as being in cahoots with racists like Bull Connor and George Wallace.

“No, I didn’t say that,” Biden quipped. “It’s an interesting read of English. You – I guess you got into journalism because you liked to write.”

The very next day, Jacqui Heinrich of Fox News shouted a question at Biden about the situation in Ukraine. “Why are you waiting for Putin to make the first move, sir? was his question.

“What a stupid question,” was his answer.

And then on Monday, it was the turn of Peter Doocy from Fox News. “Do you think inflation will be a political handicap before the midterm elections?” Doocy shouted at the president as the press was escorted out of an event.

“That’s a big plus, no more inflation,” Biden scowled sarcastically. “What a stupid son of b—-.”

The contrast to what he had said almost exactly a year before was stark.

SEAN HANNITY: BIDEN ONCE PROMISED TO RESTORE CIVILITY

“Everyone…everyone has the right to be treated with decency and dignity,” Biden had told his staff. “It’s been missed a lot over the past four years,” he said of the Trump era.

Maybe that was on his mind when he later called Doocy to try to work things out. But after Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked Doocy if he had received an apology, it became clear that Biden was unwilling to go that far.

“He purged the air and I appreciate that,” Doocy said politely. “We had a good call,” Doocy said.

“That’s not an answer,” Hannity chuckled. “That doesn’t sound like an apology.”

“He said, ‘It’s nothing personal, mate.’ And I told him I appreciated his reaching out to me,” Doocy replied.

Well, someone was showing decency and dignity.
