Biden SNAPS at reporter 'you're such a pain in the neck' for asking about VA vaccine rule.

JOE Biden snapped at a reporter who asked him about vaccine mandates on Monday, telling her she is "such a pain in the neck."

The president had been asked about new rules that health care workers at the Department of Veterans Affairs get the Covid shot.

Biden was hosting Iraqi Prime Minister Mustaka Al-Kadhimi and taking questions from the press about America's relationship with Iraq when he was asked about the vaccine mandate.

He told NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell: "You are such a pain in the neck, but I’m going to answer your question because we’ve known each other so long.

"It has nothing to do with Iraq.

"Yes, Veteran Affairs is going to, in fact, require that all doctors working in their facilities are gonna have to be vaccinated."

Biden's jab at O'Donnell was met with some chuckles from other reporters in the room.

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday became the first major federal agency to require health care workers to get Covid vaccines.

VA Secretary Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough said: "It’s the best way to keep veterans safe, especially as the delta variant spreads across the country.

"Whenever a veteran or VA employee sets foot in a VA facility, they deserve to know that we have done everything in our power to protect them from COVID-19.

“With this mandate, we can once again make — and keep — that fundamental promise."

It was unclear what would happen to VA employees who refuse to be vaccinated.
