A visibly fired-up former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at Fox News’ Pete Doocy Saturday when he asked how often he talks to his son about his business dealings, accusing President Donald Trump of trying to “smear” him.
“Here’s what I know,” he said from the middle of a media mob. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He’s violating every basic norm of a president.”
“You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader,” he continued. “Trump is doing this because he knows I will beat him like a drum. He’s using abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me.”
“Ask the right questions,” he shot at Doocy in conclusion.
