Reporters slam White House for shouting down questions from the press pool



Reporters faced a bizarre scenario on Tuesday as White House aides shouted down their attempts to ask President Biden questions during an Oval Office meeting.

Biden met with U. K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the White House where the two discussed an array of issues. Johnson took several questions but when Biden as asked questions, White House aides promptly escorted reporters out of the Oval Office.

CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe described how the situation unfolded.

“IN THE OVAL OFFICE… @POTUS Biden and British PM @BorisJohnson meet to discuss pandemic, trade and other issues. Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U. S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said,” he wrote.

He also described attempting to ask Biden a question on the southern border but being unable to hear the answer due to aides’ shouting.

“As we were leaving, I asked the president for his reaction to the situation on the southern border. Due to shouting by White House aides, the noise of everyone leaving, and the president wearing his mask, we could not make out his answer,” O’Keefe tweeted.

He later updated that they could later make out the words “violence is not justified” but little else in Biden’s answer.

Several other reporters aired their grievances and called out the White House over their behavior.
