Reporters aren’t tired of dishing out soft-serve ice cream questions for President Biden — and he isn’t tired of answering.

The Democrat was greeting with a round of “oh!” and “yeah!” responses Thursday after once again fielding inquiries on his favorite flavors of ice cream.

“Mr. President! What did you order?” a reporter exclaimed as Mr. Biden stopped in at Honey Hut Ice Cream in Cleveland.

“Chocolate-chocolate chip,” the commander-in-chief responded to his rapt audience.

One tweet of the footage racked up nearly 150,000 views within hours as Twitter users questioned the ongoing fascination among the press.

A sampling of the feedback consolidated by Twitchy include:

  • “American journalism in its peak.”
  • “Our media is a disgrace.”
  • “Wow, such hard-hitting journalism.”
  • “All the oohs at his choice made me laugh.”

Mr. Biden faced similar questioning prior to the 2020 election when reporters pressed him for his favorite flavor of milkshake in North Carolina.

“We got one vanilla, one chocolate, but I wanted to get what we call black-and-white. … We’re gonna split it,” he said during an October campaign stop in Durham.

The then-candidate was ushered away when a reporter tried to ask about son Hunter Biden‘s business dealings ending up on the FBI’s radar.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki also spent time talking about a mythical ice cream freezer that is said to exist to satiate the Democrat’s sweet tooth.

“I have not found it and I have worked here before,” she said in a Twitter video posted on Jan. 24. “I have not found the freezer yet.”
