President Joe Biden had an epic comeback to a question from Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy during a contentious press conference on Thursday, and video of the exchange has gone viral on social media.
Referencing a report from Special Counsel Robert Hur regarding Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, Doocy asked the president, “How bad is your memory and can you continue as president?”
Biden proceeded to take Doocy’s question and smack it out of the briefing room.
Doocy then asked, “Something the special counsel said in his report is that one of the reasons you were not charged is because, in his description, you are a well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”
The president replied, “I’m well-meaning, and I’m an elderly man, and I know what the hell I’m doing. I’ve been president, and I put this country back on its feet. I don’t need his recommendation.”
Commenters on Twitter/X, stood and cheered for Biden.
