Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, seemed to abruptly end a local radio interview in North Carolina when the host inquired about President Joe Biden’s mental state. The incident occurred during a conversation with Mark Garrison from 99.3 WBT, a radio station located in Charlotte.

Jean-Pierre’s appearance on the show took place prior to Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ campaign visit to the crucial battleground state. In response to Garrison’s question about Biden’s dementia, the press secretary deemed it “extremely offensive” and swiftly requested to move on to the next topic. Subsequently, it appears that she ended the call after being asked about the state of the economy, as evidenced by a clip from the interview.

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

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

“For the past several years, the president’s physician has laid out, in a very comprehensive way, the president’s health,” Jean-Pierre continued. “This is a president that if you watch him everyday, 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 have been. So I am not going to truly, really take the premise of your question. I think it is incredibly offensive. So we can move on to the next question?”
