White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a press briefing on Friday August 6, 2021, in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to push back against a right wing reporter who was trying to spin conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden in the press briefing room.

"There's no reason to yell, I'm certainly not yelling," Psaki had to tell Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.

"Though the President has said during the campaign that none of his family will have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or foreign country wouldn't it be assuring to the American people," Robinson declared, "if they just let the American people know if Hunter has divulged himself?" (She appears to have meant "divested," not "divulged.")

"I conveyed to you and then I think I'm gonna have to move on, that you should talk to, you should talk to his representatives and – there's no reason to yell, I'm certainly not yelling. You should talk to his representatives, that remains his policy, he's been working to wind that down. Beyond that, I'd say talk to his representatives."
