KJP appears to hang up on North Carolina radio host after ‘offensive’ question about whether Biden has dementia

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to hang up on a North Carolina radio host Tuesday after the host dared to ask whether President Joe Biden had dementia.

Jean-Pierre called the question from WBT’s Mark Garrison “offensive” and “insulting,” highlighting that the president’s physician has laid out a “comprehensive” report on the president’s health.

“I can’t even believe you’re asking me this question. That is an incredibly offensive question to ask,” Jean-Pierre said. “Let me be very clear about this. For the past several years, the president’s physician has laid out in a comprehensive way the president’s health. This is a president who, if you watch him every day, if you really pay attention to his record and what he has done, you will see exactly how focused he’s been on the American people, how historic his actions have been. And so I’m not even going to truly, truly, really, you know, take the premise of your question. I think it is incredibly insulting.”

The press secretary requested the next question, which she also firmly answered, regarding gas and grocery prices. Garrison questioned how the president can expect to win votes when voters have less disposable income.

“When the president walked into this administration, there were multiple problems happening,” Jean-Pierre said. ‘But the president took action on gas prices. Let’s not forget, the Russian invasion of Ukraine skyrocketed prices of gas, and because the president took action, we are in a different place than we were a year ago on gas prices. Eggs, milk, seafood products, all the important groceries — those prices have gone down because of what this president has been able to do. And with that, thank you so much, Mark, have an amazing day.”
