Fox reporter Alexandria Hoff seemed to go off message in a live report about how 'very busy' Joe Biden has been during his day working from his home in Delaware.
A Fox reporter shocked some viewers by making a truthful observation about Democratic President Joe Biden on a live broadcast.
President Joe Biden spent the weekend at his beach house in Delaware.
Alexandria Hoff—Washington D.C. general assignment reporter for FOX News Channel (FNC)—deviated from the anti-Democratic/pro-Republican rhetoric and propaganda usually found on her network.
"The President has been anything but off the grid while here in Delaware."
The Fox correspondent added:
"So the President’s [phone] line here in Delaware, again, was very busy today—even on that breezy beach walk we were just talking about."
"The President was on a cell phone during a portion of that."

People expressed their surprise over Hoff's factual comments.
They also remarked on the anticipated reaction of the Fox core audience.
How many emergency rooms reported an influx of old white people whose heads had exploded after that?

Several also cited the contrast with and hypocrisy of the GOP.
@tedcruz The President working 24/7 for America.
Cancun Teddy this is from @FoxNews
While you spend your days on your podcast and right wing outlets. Spewing lies daily.
Another reason you will never be President.

Yeah, sounds like what a REAL POTUS does during a crisis.

Do these people remember that they work at Fox News? I mean, they actually seem to be giving Biden credit for doing something. Now if they can contrast that with Republicans, it’d be sweet.

Meanwhile the GOP is on vacation for the weekend.

Guess the impending FCC action against Fox in Philly has pushed a change in coverage. Regardless, I almost think it's too little and WAY too late. Despite my pessimism, perhaps that coverage will cool the cult.

Why was it okay for TFG to watch TV all morning and call into shows while citizens died of COVID? And his weekends at Mar A Lago or Bedminster were golf, golf, golf, dinners where club members gave him an ovation when he got to the dining room.

Good to see that Fox isn't negative about everything.

The GOP feigning outrage over him being in Delaware is quite rich when they’ve had the House of Representatives shut down for weeks.

The fact FOX NEWS is talking about how Biden has been incredibly busy and heavily involved, is awesome and hilarious

That's what presidents do. They face things head-on. They don't ignore the issues while playing a round of golf. They determine what the issues are and take the necessary steps to try and alleviate whatever the problems are. They at least try!!

The rest of conservative media tried to make a negative issue of Biden being in Delaware for the weekend but Hoff's commentary made clear there was no substance to their complaints.
Hoff reported President Biden had conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, leaders of Germany, France, Italy, the UK and Canada as well as a national security briefing.
President Biden also spoke to the leader of the Roman Catholic faith, Pope Francis. Biden is a practicing Roman Catholic.
