Fox News reporter Doocy confronts Jen Psaki over being ‘snubbed’ at Biden press conference

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy confronted White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday for the administration’s unfairness in the press briefing room, The Hill reported

This comes after President Joe Biden “snubbed” Doocy during his first solo press conference on Thursday, not allowing the journalist to ask him a single question during the hour-long event, according to The Hill.

“Official administration policy?”

The exchange between Doocy and Psaki took place during a press briefing, during which Doocy asked Psaki whether it was the “official administration policy” for Biden never to call on him.

“We’re here having a conversation, aren’t we?” Psaki replied. “And do I take questions from you every time I come to the briefing room? Has the president taken questions from you since he came into office, yes or no?”

As is typical for Psaki, this was a deflection.

While it is true that Psaki, herself, takes questions from Doocy, the only questions that Biden has taken from him are ones that Doocy shouts out in the hope of getting the president to answer them. Usually, these questions only get a dismissive response from Biden.

After Biden’s first solo press conference, reports emerged indicating that Biden had a piece of paper that told him which journalists to call on.

The no-call list

On Friday, Doocy sked Psaki about that list. “I’m just curious with this list that he is given,” he said. “The only member of the five network pool never on it dating back to when he resumed in-person events in Wilmington during the campaign.”

Psaki, however, stuck to her strategy.

“I’d say that I’m always happy to have this conversation with you, even about the awesome socks you are wearing today, and have a conversation with you even when we disagree,” she said.

“The president has taken your questions and I’m looking forward to doing ‘Fox News Sunday’ this Sunday for the third time in the last few months,” she added.

As was demonstrated in this interchange, Psaki does call on Doocy, but she doesn’t answer his questions. We still don’t know if the Biden administration has some sort of “don’t let Biden call on Doocy policy” but it’s clear that Biden isn’t anywhere close to former President Donald Trump who regularly appeared and answered questions from an extremely combative press.

  3. Peter wants to ask his questions to biden (when biden is holding a press conference), not Psaki. She does not seem to know THAT SHE IS NOT THE PRESIDENT! Speaking with her is not the same as speaking with biden!!!

  4. Does she ever answer a question that is important. I have never heard her do so. Questions like how is Biden’s dog doing today or what color socks is Biden’s wearing today is about as tuff as is gets. When Psaki is asked a question that is worth asking she gives the same response. She will Have to circle back around later to give an answer. But, she never does.

  5. Jen Psaki was terrible when she was in the Obama ADM Terrible is too kind of word for her sarcastic replies and snears.. Grow up and quit acting like an entitled spoiled brat.

  6. She ought to be ashamed of herself for that reply to Peter. This administration is dishonest as the day is long.

  7. The democrats don’t want Biden to answer any questions from all of the news medias because they know that Biden can not answer them as a president should be able to. The citizen of this country should really be able to see that for their selves. Biden is nothing but a fake president and Harris is a fake also.

  8. How do we remove the President, the Vice President, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff ? The people of this country and their ancestors made this country. Don’t the majority of the Citizens have a right to go and Sue these people and remove them from office ? What can WE do to remove them from their positions ? Any answers ?

  9. Good for Doosy , i have wondered how stupid are American people?, They have let Democrats slide into power and with out a violent push back have you figured out how to throw Pelosi, Schumer,Whitmer out? They got into power by dishonest voteing, and if it take dishonest means to get them out,so be it.

  10. This job of keeping up with Biden and Kamala and the corrupt Democraps lies is sure aging Jen Psaki a lot since she started . It’s a hard job especially when your boss has brain damage .
