Did Biden just say the quiet part out loud?
Joe Biden on Wednesday sat down for an exclusive one-on-one interview with PBS special correspondent Judy Woodruff.
This is Joe Biden’s first interview in MONTHS.
Joe Biden was asked about his classified documents scandal.
“You said just possessing classified documents is ‘totally irresponsible’? So, what was totally irresponsible about the fact that you had some?” Woodruff asked Biden.
“They’ve informed me not to speak to this issue,” Biden said.
Woodruff also asked Joe Biden about the China spy balloon that he allowed to traverse across the continental United States.
A China spy balloon floated across US airspace for 7 days straight with Joe Biden’s full approval.
The high-altitude surveillance balloon was spotted over the Aleutian Islands two Saturdays ago.
Biden initially refused to shoot down the balloon and allowed it to soar over military installations and nuclear silos.
The Pentagon finally shot down the balloon as it soared over the Atlantic Ocean.
Woodruff asked Biden if allowing the spy balloon to fly over the US uninterrupted was a “dereliction of duty.”
“Republicans are saying you look weak… Mike Gallagher, the congressman said, ‘inexplicable’ that you didn’t shoot it down earlier. Marco Rubio said it was ‘dereliction of duty’ not to immediately tell the public about this,” Woodruff said.
Biden said the quiet part out loud.
“The idea that there was a dereliction of duty I think is, uh, it’s a bizarre notion. China knows exactly what the deal is with us,” Biden said.
There it is.
