If you are a spokesperson for a political candidate, you should be prepared to answer questions you might not like.
This is particularly true when such questions are straightforward and predictable.
Joe Biden’s national press secretary, TJ Ducklo, apparently disagrees. He had a meltdown live on Fox News’ “Special Report” Thursday evening after host Bret Baier asked a simple question about Biden’s use of a teleprompter.
“Has Joe Biden ever used a teleprompter during local interviews or to answer Q&A with supporters?” Baier asked.
“Bret, we are not gonna engage — this is straight from the Trump campaign’s talking points,” Ducklo responded.
“Well yeah, they’re using it,” Baer interjected.
“And what it does, and what it does, Bret, is it’s trying to distract the American people,” Ducklo continued.
Ducklo went on to say he wouldn’t “allow the Trump campaign to funnel their questions through Fox News.”
