Democrat President Joe Biden was caught shopping and going out for ice cream on Tuesday after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki appeared to struggle to answer what exactly Biden was up to today.

“The president has nothing on his schedule today aside from the PDB,” a reporter said. “Can you shed any light on how he’s spending his day?”

“Well, let’s see, um, this morning I think he had some policy meetings, uh, also a PDB meeting,” Psaki said. “Uh, he, um, later this afternoon, uh, I think is doing some remarks review. There’s some days that we spend some time doing internal meetings and discussions, uh, with policy experts, with policy leaders, um, and that’s that’s what’s happening today.”

Reuters reporter Jeff Mason later tweeted out photographs showing Biden wandering around Washington, D.C., visiting at least one boutique store and going to an ice cream shop.

“@POTUS ⁩visits a boutique store on Capitol Hill called Honey Made,” Mason tweeted. “Products at Honey Made include RBG and ⁦@KamalaHarris ⁩mugs and oven mitts.”

“The President made a quick pitstop at the ice cream shop this afternoon after a visit to neighboring boutique Honey Made, where he admired necklaces on the wall for ‘my wife,’ examined a coaster with a German shepherd on it, and picked up a Kamala Harris mug,” The Washingtonian reported. “Early pool reports are vague, however, on what Biden ordered at Jeni’s other than it was a cone with two scoops—’light colored flavor on bottom, darker ice cream on top.’ POTUS waved the cone at pool reporters before heading off in his motorcade.”

After his activities, a lid was called at 3:06 p.m.

During Tuesday’s press briefing, Psaki also addressed Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” during an event yesterday.

Biden made the remark when Doocy asked him, “Do you think inflation is a political liability for midterms?”

“It’s a great asset, more inflation,” Biden responded. “What a stupid son of a b****.”

“The President, the President called Peter, and [Peter Doocy] confirmed this, so this is only why I’m speaking to this, and if you have private conversations with the president, I will assure you I’m not going to convey that on your behalf,” Psaki said. “But Peter spoke to this, the President called him, he conveyed to him that it was nothing personal man and also acknowledged that all of you are going to ask him a range of questions. So I think that speaks for itself.”

Psaki did not say that Biden apologized for calling Doocy a “stupid son of a b****.”
