US President Joe Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, got into an argument with a journalist and broke out in emotion during the briefing.

The reason for the outburst of anger Jean-Pierre was the question of a journalist from the Daily Caller. She wanted to ask US chief infectious disease specialist Anthony Fauci, who was also answering questions, what he had done to investigate the birth of the coronavirus.

Jean-Pierre began to accuse the journalist in a lofty tone of rebellious behavior and disrespect.

– I will not give you the floor if you speak loudly, and besides, you take up time, since Dr. Fauci has to leave in a few minutes. I’m done, I’m not going to swear with you, – the press secretary flared up and walked away from the podium.

However, the journalist received support from one of her colleagues. He stated that the question was justified and deserved to be asked. Jean-Pierre returned to the microphone and responded sharply: “Now it’s not your turn. I heard the question, but we don’t work the way you want. It’s disrespectful. I’m done, I’ve had enough, now everything is with you, ”she finally lost her temper.

This is not the first incident that has sparked a wave of anger from the White House press secretary. Recently, she abruptly broke off the sentence – “it’s not your turn to speak” – a journalist who asked a question about the health of the current US president.
