Former Obama official rejects Biden's claim that Fox News reporter's question on Putin was 'stupid'

“It isn’t a stupid question,” former Obama Director of Global Engagement Brett Bruen tweeted Thursday. “It’s a really important one. We continue to allow Putin to set the terms, timeline, & trajectory of this crisis. It’s time we stop being so reactive & start creating some of our own conditions.”

SEN. DURBIN SAYS HE’D LIKE TO ASK BIDEN ‘WHAT HE WAS THINKING’ ON PUTIN REMARKS

Earlier in the day, Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked the president, “Why are you waiting on Putin to make the first move, sir?”

“What a stupid question,” the president muttered under his breath without providing a direct answer. 

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.
