‘WHAT A STUPID QUESTION’ – Biden Dismisses Female Reporter Asking About Ukraine
President Biden has a bad habit of mocking and dismissing female reporters. Today, he rudely dismissed a question posed by Fox reporter Jacqui Heinrich.
The president’s remarks were captured by a White House pool reporter.
MR. LANDER: Well, thank you, Mr. President. I think what we’re going to do is thank the press very much right now and ask folks to step out.White House Pool
And for folks watching by Zoom, it’ll be another, you know, moment or two and then we’ll pick up as folks collect their things.
Thank you all so much for coming.
Q Sir, can you say declaratively the election this fall will be legitimate?
Q Why are you waiting on Putin to make the first move, sir?
THE PRESIDENT: (Laughs.) What a stupid question.
