Joe Biden insulted a Fox News reporter who asked him about inflation
In a press conference at the White House, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, starred in a surprising crossroads with a journalist from Fox News. When asked about inflation, about the end of the interviews, the president launched a cataract of insults towards the man.
“That is a great asset. More inflation? stupid son of a bitch”muttered Biden, who still had the microphone on. These words were intended for a White House correspondent, Peter Doocy.
The Fox News reporter had consulted him, when the press conference seemed to have come to an end and the rest of his colleagues were leaving the place: “Do you think that inflation is a political responsibility?”
The insult was edited from the official video of the White House, although it could be heard in the recording broadcast live on the television channel C-SPAN.
Minutes earlier, Biden had had another strong response, in front of another journalist who had consulted him about the role of the United States in the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine. “The only reason I don’t like to do this is because you never report why a meeting was called, and this is important,” the president said. “I had a very, very, very good meeting, total unanimity with all the European leaders, we will talk about a lady. Thank you. Thanks”, he added.
The previous question arose from Biden’s decision that the Pentagon will put some 8,500 soldiers stationed in the United States on alert for a possible deployment to Europe, with the aim of reassuring allies amid growing fears. of a possible Russian military move in Ukraine.
