On Wednesday, when Peter Doocy of Fox News asked President Joe Biden about his phone chats with his son Hunter Biden, the President didn’t give Doocy much of an answer.
Former business associate Devon Archer has told the House Oversight Committee that Hunter Biden’s way of claiming influence and power to formulate business deals is based on the fact that the President’s son would put his father on the phone.
During a journey across the Western states, Biden stopped in New Mexico, and Doocy asked him about it.
Doocy informed Biden that Hunter’s former business partners claimed in testimony that Biden was frequently on speakerphone with them, talking business. As Doocy tried to ask his question, Biden blurted, “I knew you’d have a lousy question.”
The Fox reporter, Doocy, asked why it was a lousy question.
“Because it’s not true,” the president snapped.
The inquiry pertains to Devon Archer, a former business colleague of Hunter Biden, who was recently interviewed by the House Oversight Committee and whose transcript was made public.
Archer discussed the Biden “brand” at length, claiming that Hunter Biden had his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, on speakerphone for certain meetings with business acquaintances. While Archer overheard several phone calls by Hunter Biden, he claims that the conversations he overheard were “generally about the weather” rather than the content of Biden’s business operations.
And Hillery deleted the emails after being subpoenaed about yoga and weddings.
For months, Republicans in Congress and prominent conservative media figures have been outraged by President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and have claimed that he is financially profiting from his father’s position as a former senator and vice president.
Doocy, who only recently returned to Fox after paternity leave, has often irritated the president with his line of inquiry.
President Biden was overheard on a hot microphone last year calling the senior White House correspondent for Fox News a “stupid son of a bitch” for asking about the economy.
Fox News is the most popular cable news network, and the relationship between Biden’s White House and the network has always been tense.
