The White House press secretary had an uncomfortable exchange with a North Carolina radio show host after being asked if President Biden has dementia.

When asked the question, she called it incredibly offensive and refused to entertain the premise of the inquiry.

“When I told a number of people that I was talking to you today — it was interesting, though — they all said, ‘Would you please just ask her, does the president have dementia?’” WBT Charlotte’s Mark Garrison said. “So before I move on from it, does he?”

“That, Mark, I can’t even believe you’re asking me this question,” Jean-Pierre said. “That is [sic] incredibly offensive question to ask.”

“But you know people ask it,” Garrison said.

“Wait, oh, let me, no, no, no, no, no, you, Mark, you, you took, you’re taking us down this rabbit hole. Let me, uh, let me, let me be very clear about this,” Jean-Pierre said.

“For the past several years, the President’s physician has laid out very, in a comprehensive way, the President’s health. Uh, this is a president, 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 has [sic] been,” she said.

“And so I’m not even going to truly, truly, uh, uh, really, you know, take, take the premise of your question. I think it is incredibly insulting, and, and so we can, you know, we can move on to the next question.”

The host continued pressing about high gas and grocery prices, to which the press secretary blamed prior administration policies before abruptly ending the interview, surprising the hosts.

“How does Mr. Biden win votes when people don’t have as much disposable income?” Garrison asked.

“Those costs have gone down because of what this President has been able to do. And with that, thank you so much Mark, have an amazing, amazing day,” she said, hanging up.

“Wow, wow!” Garrison and a co-host said.

“I don’t understand the fragility of this person,” Garrison’s cohost added.

The hosts noted they had asked no inappropriate questions to prompt the early conclusion.
