Like all Democrats, Joe Biden is not used to being challenged or asked tough questions by members of the press.
When Peter Doocy of FOX News asked Biden about his sons questionable overseas business dealings, he lashed out.
Mother Jones reports:
Biden Scolds Fox News Reporter: “Ask the Right Question”
Joe Biden scolded the media on Saturday for focusing on President Donald Trump’s unfounded allegations about connections to his son’s work in Ukraine rather than the major scandal of the day: that Trump appears to have abused his powers in order to coerce a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political opponent.
“You should be asking him the question: why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader?” Biden told reporters in Iowa. “This appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power. To get on the phone with a foreign leader who is looking for help from the United States and ask about me and imply things … this is outrageous. You have never seen anything like this from any president.”
Biden’s comments came after Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked the former vice president how many times he had spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings. Biden responded that he never had. Doocy’s question is about the faux-scandal that President Donald Trump is trying to drum up and is reportedly part of a whistleblower complaint in the Intelligence Community. According to news accounts, Trump has been pressuring the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter.

Is anyone surprised that Biden immediately tried to make this all about Trump?
Your not allowed to ask the wrong questions. Perhaps the DNC can print out the questions the reporters are allowed to ask & CNN can hand them out. That’s how it works in liberal politics https://t.co/6rReTYhuvt

Joe Biden seemed quite defensive & angry when Peter Doocy asked him about his son & Ukraine. Even waving his finger in Peters face!

Is anyone surprised? Did you just see Biden's over the top performance when Peter Doocy asked a question. Someone should update Joe about facts. And YES he should be investigated. Bad acting at that.

Joe Biden sure seems defensive about this.
Why doesn’t he want to come clean on the issue?
