(CBrief) – President Joe Biden got testy again with Fox News’ White House correspondent Peter Doocy after he asked him a question about first son Hunter Biden.

The back-and-forth came in regards to the president insisting again that he “never” talked about Hunter’s business dealings even as Republicans continue to find evidence to the contrary as Biden finally addressed the allegations he was involved in lucrative foreign deals, the UK’s Daily Mail reported.

“There’s this testimony now where one of your son’s former business associates is claiming that you were on speaker phone a lot talking business,” Doocy asked in regard to testimony from Devon Archer last week, a former business partner of Hunter’s.

During the hearing, Archer claimed that Joe Biden was on speakerphone with prospective business partners Hunter was working in order to “sell” the Biden “brand.”

“I never talked business…I knew you’d have a lousy question,” Joe Biden said in response.

“Why is that a lousy question?” Doocy said in response.

“Because it’s not true,” Biden snapped in response before walking off.

The Daily Mail noted further:

His response came hours after Republicans released new bank statements detailing payments from Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan to the Biden family and associates.

Hunter’s former business partner Archer testified to the House Oversight Committee last week that the then-vice president had been present on speakerphone or in-person around 20 times over 10 years while Hunter was meeting with associates.

Archer did not claim to have ever heard Joe Biden discussing business but said Hunter would use his father as a flex – and hearing the voice of the vice president on speed dial was enough to sell the ‘brand’ to foreign executives.

‘I can definitively say at particular dinners or meetings, he knew there were business associates,” Archer told former Fox News star Tucker Carlson for a “Tucker on Twitter” episode last week.

“I don’t know if it was an orchestrated call-in or not. It certainly was powerful, though, because, you know, if you’re sitting with a foreign businessperson and you hear the vice president’s voice, that’s prize enough,” he added.

“Sometimes it was the call was coming in and the speaker would go on,” Archer said, providing more details about the conversations. “You understand D.C. right? So the power to have that access in that conversation – it’s not in a scheduled conference call, and that’s a part of your family. That’s like the pinnacle of power in D.C.”

Until this week, Doocy had been noticeably absent from his regular duties for several weeks, but he reappeared on Monday to explain what was going on.

It was a life-changing event that took him away from his daily pressuring of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

In a segment on “Fox & Friends” with his father, Steve Doocy, and co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Peter said he was spending time at home with his wife and their newborn daughter.

“Doocy returned Monday after spending time on paternity leave in late spring after his wife, Fox News congressional correspondent Hillary Vaughn, returned to work. The couple welcomed their daughter Feb. 1,” The Daily Caller reported.

As a first-time father, he devoted much of his free time to playing with baby Bridget, including moments in the swimming pool, and he even expressed aspirations for her to potentially become a future president, the outlet reported.

A co-worker gave Doocy and his wife a pink onesie for their daughter that read “Future President.” “Keep an eye out for the Fox News Democracy 2060 coverage,” Doocy quipped during the segment.

As part of his daily routine, he would wake up at 7 a.m., feed her a bottle, and take her for a walk. Now that the baby is older, she has started eating solid food, including sweet potatoes, he revealed.

Doocy shared the joyous news of Bridget Blake Doocy’s birth in a social media post on February 9. He and his wife had previously announced that they were expecting a baby girl during a “Fox & Friends” segment in September, where his father, Steve, also shared recipes from his cookbook.
