When asked by the Conservatives’ favorite channel, Fox News, about the possibility of inflation being a political malady, the leader speaks out of breath, but without leaving the table, jokingly says: “C is a big asset. More inflation.”
And in order to be free, he might have thought to turn off his microphone: “You Asami”.
The insult (“What an idiot son”) seemed to be in the transcript of the meeting sent Monday evening by the White House.
The slide is a new sign of the 79 – year – old Democrat’s tension.
Inflation, unprecedented in 40 years, is affecting Americans, especially less than ten months before the midterm elections, which promises to be particularly critical for Democrats.
Monday’s exchange with this president’s usual ponhome, which promises to compromise the United States and avoid the excessive language of his predecessor Donald Trump, was completely different.
Joe Biden from the Republican camp was immediately attacked by critics.
“So the president,” tweeted the most conservative elected Josh Howley sarcastically, while some of his colleagues paradoxically recreated Joe Biden’s moderate old calls.
Peter Doosey, a journalist known for the sharp tone of his questions and targeted by the president’s insult, took the situation with humor.
“No one has yet verified the veracity of his comments,” he began on his channel a few minutes later.
Last week, after a very long press conference, he promised to keep in touch with the Americans, and Joe Biden expressed his annoyance by muttering “what a silly question” to a question already started by another Fox News reporter.
Approximately at times he had vague views on Ukraine and the legitimacy of the election, which forced him to clarify his administration.
His predecessor, Donald Trump, was constantly insulted for his excessive rhetoric against the media and his fanaticism. After a heated exchange with a Republican millionaire, the accreditation of a journalist from the CNN chain was temporarily withdrawn from the White House.
Joe Biden’s continued misconduct, since the presidential election campaign, has repeatedly raised doubts about his mental health.
Most of his voters, however, seem to forgive him for the mistakes he has made, consider him sympathetic and genuine, and accuse the media of magnifying the controversy.
