Fox News reporter Peter Doocy grilled Joe Biden over his role in his family’s shady foreign business dealings, causing the Democrat president to snap back with an angry response.
Doocy questioned the ever-changing story of the Biden family business and the president’s role in it.
Biden, who never talks to the press in an unscripted environment, did not handle it well.
Doocy brought up the recent bombshell testimony from Hunter Biden’s longtime friend and business partner Devon Archer.
Archer testified before Congress that Joe Biden played a key role in the business and alleged that the family was selling access to Obama’s White House.
According to Archer, Joe Biden frequently spoke with foreign business associates to sell “the brand” – the influence of the vice president’s office.
Doocy said: “There’s this testimony now where one of your son’s former business associates is claiming that you were on speaker phone a lot talking business.”
Biden said: “I never talked business…
“I knew you’d have a lousy question.”
Doocy said: “Why is that a lousy question?”
An irritated Joe Biden cracked under the grilling and made a mistake that will come back to haunt him.
Trapped by the question, Biden blurted out, “Because it is not true.”
DOOCY CONFRONTS BIDEN:
“There’s this testimony now where one of your son’s former business associates is claiming that you were on speaker phone a lot talking business.”
BIDEN: “I never talked business…I knew you’d have a lousy question”

Hunter’s ex-business partner said differently to Tucker Carlson.
Devon Archer told Carlson Biden jumped on business calls with them at least 20 times and personally met some of their business associates.
Archer said what they were selling was “the brand” and that Joe Biden was that brand.
Democrats claim Biden just “talked about the weather” and not “business” but that doesn’t pass the smell test.
Archer admitted to Carlson that putting Joe Biden on the speakerphone during business meetings was an “abuse of soft power.”

TUCKER: “You’ve got a lot of kids. You’re close to them.
“Do you call them on speaker during business meetings?”
DEVON ARCHER: “Umm… do I call?”
TUCKER: “What is that? A grown man calling his dad on a speakerphone during a business meeting?
“It’s not just, ‘hey, dad, I’m in a meeting with some buddies.’
“It’s, ‘let me put my dad, the Vice President, on speaker.’”
ARCHER: “Yep. In the rearview, it’s an abuse of soft power, I’d say.”
