One of the most stunning moments during today’s historic summit between President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin came during Putin’s press conference. ABC News’ Congressional Correspondent Rachel Scott asked a pointed question — two, actually — that seemed to actually unsettle Putin due to its bluntness.

“What are you so afraid of?”

That six-word question was enough to make Scott the talk of Twitter Wednesday afternoon as people applauded her directness in challenging the Russian leader.

Scott’s ABC News colleague Jonathan Karl also praised his colleague for challenging Putin.

Scott began her career with ABC in 2016, moving up quickly in the ranks. She spent the past few years covering the Trump White House as well as major national stories like Hurricane Irma and the deadly tornadoes that ravaged Alabama in 2019.
