US President Joe Biden called NBC journalist Kelly O’Donnell after a question about the mandatory vaccination of medical workers against coronavirus. His words are reported by FOX News.
“You are such a headache, but I will answer your question. Yes, the Ministry of Veterans Affairs will require all doctors who work in their institutions to be vaccinated, ”the politician said. The journalist stressed that she was not offended by Biden’s comment and even took his words as a compliment.
This is not the first time an American leader has behaved strangely with media representatives. So, on June 25, he addressed journalists in a whisper during a press conference. The recording of the politician’s speech spread on the Internet and launched the hashtag “Creepy Joe”.
Prior to that, Biden had a falling out with a journalist over words about the constructiveness of a meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, which took place in Geneva on June 16. He said that a woman is “doing the wrong thing” if she does not understand the importance of the last summit. He later apologized to the journalist and said that “he shouldn’t have been such a smart guy.”
