House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA )’s weekly press conference went off the rails Thursday when a reporter asked her about the “corruption” of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, which left her unglued.
Pelosi loses it when asked about Biden
A reporter, now identified as Kerry Picket of the Washington Examiner, asked Pelosi about the "grave allegations of corruption against Joe Biden."
Pelosi cut off Picket and said, "I'm sorry, I'm not answering your question."
"We're talking about the coronavirus," added Pelosi. "I don't have all day to ask questions."

Back in April, Picket asked Pelosi about the sexual assault allegations Tara Reade had brought against Biden and asked if Democrats had a different “standard” for Biden than they did for Brett Kavanaugh of the Supreme Court when they asked him for sexual assault Assaults will be investigated. Claims from when he was a teenager.
"I respect your question," Pelosi said at the time. "I don't need a lecture or a speech."
The spokeswoman went on to stand by Biden because "it was never recorded".

Democrats try to ignore Hunter Biden reports
This is because Biden and his Democrats continue to reject reports that former Vice President Hunter's son has been involved in corrupt business in the past. Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates fired back Wednesday to counter the allegations after it became known that Rudy Giuliani had provided the press with emails allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden.
“The Delaware Attorney General stated that the FBI is“ conducting an ongoing investigation into the veracity of this entire story. ”And it would not be surprising to investigate a disinformation operation involving Rudy Giuliani and those who assist him on money laundering issues "Especially since there are other documented investigations into its business," Bates said in a statement.
"In fact, Donald Trump's own national security adviser warned the president that material provided by Giuliani should be viewed as tainted by Russian interference," he added.
