Nancy Pelosi is over questions about Hunter Biden.
In a Thursday press conference, the House Speaker (D-CA) snapped at a reporter and refused to answer a direct question about the “allegations of corruption” surrounding the Biden family, Just the News reported.
Instead, Pelosi angrily insisted upon only taking questions that were about the ongoing negotiations for a coronavirus relief package.
“I’m not answering your question, okay?”
A reporter at Pelosi’s Thursday press conference asked, “Madame Speaker, these allegations of corruption involving Joe Biden …,” before being interrupted and cut off by Pelosi.
“Excuse me, next question please,” Pelosi said with a dismissive wave of her hand. “Okay, I’m not answering your question, okay?”
“We’re talking about the coronavirus, that’s what I — I don’t have all day for questions, that’s what we’re taking now,” she added before surveying the room and asking if there were any more questions regarding the negotiations.

Not Pelosi’s first battle with this reporter
Fox News reported that the reporter that was cut-off and dismissed by Speaker Pelosi has been identified as Kerry Picket of the Washington Examiner.
Ironically, this wasn’t the first time that Pelosi and Picket have clashed during a press conference. The speaker similarly dismissed the reporter’s question when asked in April about the allegations of sexual misconduct against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden from his former Senate staffer, Tara Reade.
Picket had queried whether there was a “different standard” for Biden and Democrats when it came to such allegations, as compared with how allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had been handled in 2018. Pelosi replied that she didn’t “need a lecture or a speech” from a reporter.
The American people deserve answers
Like Pelosi, most elected Democrats and the mainstream media have gone to great lengths to avoid answering questions about the latest reports involving Joe Biden, his son, Hunter Biden, and his business dealings overseas while Joe Biden was the U.S. vice president.
But they’re worthy of an answer, since Biden is, after all, running to be the next U.S. president. The American people deserve a serious response — and so far, they’re not getting it.
