On Tuesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre asserted that President Biden refrains from insulting voters, despite instances where he has made disparaging remarks towards them. According to Fox News
“One thing that the president does not do is insult voters or the American people,” Jean-Pierre stated.
Contrary to this claim, Biden has a notable history of making questionable comments to voters and members of the media. In December 2019, while campaigning for president in Iowa, Biden engaged in a tense exchange with a voter who expressed concerns about his age and raised questions about his son’s involvement with Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.
During the exchange, Biden responded with, “You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true, and no one has ever said that,” refuting the claim that he “sent” his son to Ukraine for a job at Burisma.
In May 2020, Biden, appearing on “The Breakfast Club” radio show, remarked that individuals considering voting for him or Trump “ain’t Black.” This comment drew criticism for its perceived insensitivity.
In August 2020, Biden questioned a reporter, asking if he was “a junkie,” when queried about taking a cognitive test amid concerns about his mental stamina. He later confronted an autoworker, dismissing him with a “horse’s a–” comment during a campaign event in September 2020.
In 2022, Biden was caught on a hot mic referring to Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy as a “stupid son of a bi—” after a question about inflation.
The White House has not provided an immediate response to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
