President Biden snapped at a CNN reporter on Wednesday as she grilled him about the Geneva summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin — then apologized later for being a “wise guy.”

At the very end of Biden’s post-meeting press conference, in which he boasted about having a productive talk with Putin, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins asked Biden why he was so confident that the Russian leader “will change his behavior.”

“What in the...?” Biden snapped before stopping mid-sentence. “Why do you do that all the time?”

“I said what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and it diminishes their standing in the world. I’m not confident of anything,” the president said.

Collins followed up by pointing out that Putin’s “past behavior has not changed” and he showed no signs of conceding during his own press conference moments earlier.

“How does that account to a constructive meeting?” Collins asked.

“If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business,” Biden replied before walking away.

Biden later apologized to reporters on the tarmac at Geneva Airport and said he was sorry for losing his temper with Collins.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy with the last answer I gave,” Biden said before getting into Air Force One to head back to the U.S.
