Joe Biden lashed out at Fox News reporter Peter Doocy after he called the president out over flip flopping about payments to illegal immigrants.
Recently, Biden denied a report that his administration was planning on paying $450,000 to illegal immigrants separated. However, the ACLU claimed that the plan was real and that Biden “may not have been fully briefed about what the Department of Justice was doing.”
Biden told Doocy that the payments were garbage.
“If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah. But it’s not true,” Biden responded.
The next day, Biden’s spokeswoman confirmed that cash payouts are on the table.
On Wednesday, Biden said plans to give cash payments to illegal immigrants were “not true” and “garbage.”

As Biden took questions with from the press on November 6, 2021 Peter Doocy brought up the cash payouts again and that’s when Joe got so mad he started yelling and shaking his figure.
Below is a partial transcript:
Peter Doocy: Where do you stand? You said last week that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was garbage.
Joe Biden: No, I didn’t say that. Let’s get it straight. I said everybody coming across the border gets 500, $450,000.
Peter Doocy: So the number is what you had a problem with?
Joe Biden: The number I was referring.
Peter Doocy: Okay.
Joe Biden: Now, here’s the thing. If, in fact, because of the the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal, and you lost your child, you lost your child. It’s gone. You deserve some kind of compensation no matter what the circumstances. What that will be, I have no idea. I have no idea.
