TJ Ducklo, a top press secretary for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign, erupted in anger on Thursday afternoon during a live television interview.
Fox News anchor Bret Baier merely asked him if Joe Biden has been using a teleprompter to answer questions during media interviews.
Biden’s mental fitness for office has been under scrutiny and the Trump campaign has been highlighted instances in which Biden ‘appears to be using a teleprompter to answer questions during interviews.’
During the interview, Baier asked Ducklo, “Has Joe Biden ever used a teleprompter during local interviews or to answer Q&A with supporters?”
Ducklo then responded in an irritated tone,“Bret, we are not going to eng–, this is, this is straight from the Trump campaign talking points.”
“And what it does, and what it does, Bret, is it’s trying to distract the American,” Ducklo ranted.
“They’re using it, they talk about it every day, can you say ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” Baier pressed.
“They talk about it every day, Bret, because they don’t have a coherent strategy—” Ducklo retorted.
“Well, you haven’t answered,” Baier pressed. “Yes or no?”
Instead of replying, Ducklo continued to rant.
Baier then responded, “I understand, but you can’t answer the question.”
Ducklo suggested that the Trump campaign was funneling their questions through Fox News in an effort to get the Biden campaign to respond.
However, video evidence of Biden’s fumbles during interviews have fuelled speculation that he isn’t ‘mentally fit’ for the job.
