He quickly regretted that decision.

“And what are your plans for…” the reporter started to ask when he was cut off. Biden leaned forward into the microphone.
“A hundred and twenty days,”Biden snapped, referring to the amount of time since he took office. “Give me a break.”
Biden had been in office 145 days on Sunday, The Daily Wire pointed out, not 120.
“I need time,” he said before walking off the stage.
The Republican National Committee quickly posted a video of their exchange online.
