The White House cut its TV feed of a virtual event Wednesday after President Biden said he would take questions from Democratic lawmakers. 

Accompanied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others from the House Democratic Conference, Biden was set to answer questions from lawmakers about COVID-19 relief and vaccinations.

"I’m happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do Nance," said Biden, addressing Pelosi.

“Whatever you want me to do,” the president said right before the feed went out.

Fox News reached out for a comment from the White House but did not receive any regarding the cut feed.

Biden has been criticized for not taking many questions from the media since the start of his administration in January.
