It’s not often Joe Biden leaves his Delaware basement for a public campaign event.
It’s even more rare that Biden takes questions from reporters.
But as the event was wrapping up, what Joe Biden said about this Fox News reporter left jaws on the floor.
After a recent – and rare – campaign event in North Carolina, Biden took a few questions from reporters as the event came to an end.
Biden’s handlers, who know full well what a fragile mental state the presidential candidate is in, called on friendly supporters in the press lobbing softballs at the former Vice President.
But as Biden’s team was trying to coral the candidate out the door, reporters called for more questions, including Fox News’ Peter Doocy.
Biden noticed Doocy and told him to go ahead with his question, but not before attacking Doocy for being a “hostile” reporter.
“I know you always ask a hostile question, but go ahead,” Biden declared.
Doocy refused to back down, and pressed Biden about his claim that if Trump had just listened to him in January about the coronavirus, America would be in a different situation than it is right now.
“You said that you warned President Trump in January that there was going to be a pandemic and what needed to be done. If you knew that, then why were you still hosting crowded campaign rallies in March?” Doocy asked.
Biden knew he had stepped in it by calling on Doocy and tried to weasel his way out of answering the straightforward question.
“No, what I talked about was not what had to be done,” Biden added “What I said you got to take this seriously. You’ve got to insist that we have access to Wuhan. Insist we have access in China to find out for ourselves. We had 44 people from the CDC there. You cannot continue to talk about the president of China, saying he’s done a marvelous job, he’s doing a great job.”
Biden repeatedly gets away with saying whatever he wants by his pals in the Fake News Media.
They refuse to hold him accountable, even when he’s spouting off nonsense.
Thankfully, Peter Doocy was having none of it, and showed the American people how outlandish Biden’s claims really are.
