Joe Biden gathered with his running mate Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday. However, Biden had no patience for a reporter, who asked a timely question, and he quickly admonished the correspondent.
Video shows Biden telling Pelosi and Schumer that “in my Oval Office, mi casa, you casa.” Biden added, “I hope we’re going to spend a lot of time together.”
The press pool was then required to leave, and you can hear a Biden aide repeatedly say, “Let’s go guys, let’s go.” CBS News reporter calmly attempted to ask Biden a parting question before being escorted out of the room.
“Mr. Biden, the COVID task force said it’s safe for students to be in class. Are you going to be encouraging unions to cooperate more to bring kids back to classrooms, sir?” Erickson politely asked.
Biden dismissed the question and responded, “Why are you the only guy that always shouts out questions?” Biden and Pelosi then cackle at the reporter.
Townhall columnist and radio host Derek Hunter noted, “A completely valid and important question asked in a civil tone…deflected by Biden, who may not have understood it because it wasn’t screened by staff first.”
Asked Biden if he will encourage teacher unions to cooperate to get kids back in school because the COVID task force said it is safe to be in the classroom. He didn't answer.

The question was relevant because New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced on Wednesday that all public schools would be closed starting Thursday. Also on Wednesday, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) ordered all high school and college classrooms to close for three weeks. Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) ordered all public and private schools to close starting on Monday.
