"Joe Biden just threatened to run a reporter over with a car for wanting to ask a question about Israel."

"If President Trump had done this, he would have been impeached. Jokingly or not, this rhetoric is completely unbecoming of the President."

Conservative podcast host Stephen L Miller wrote: "Biden joking about running down a reporter for asking about Israel in an F-150 truck is a pretty good tell about just how performative the 'how dare he' fainting spells of the past 4 years actually were."

"While America's most important Middle East ally is under attack, Joe Biden threatened to run over a reporter for asking a question about it," National Republican Senatorial Committee campaign worker Jonathan Turcotte said.

"And this is the takeaway from the totally unbiased media. What a joke."

Biden was at the factory on Tuesday to test drive Ford's first electric truck...

On the way to share his infrastructure plan in Michigan when he made the comments...

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

"No you can't. Not unless you get in front of the car as I step on it," Biden replied.

Steve Guest, an advisor to Sen. Ted Cruz, said...

"This would be a five-alarm fire of a news cycle if Joe Biden was a Republican and said this to a reporter."

Tom Elliott, the founder of Gabrien, was quick to comment...

Writing: "This is a terrifying threat against America's free press and I trust impeachment proceedings will soon follow. cc @brianstelter @Acosta."
