Megyn Kelly defends Fox News’ Peter Doocy following Jen Psaki’s vulgar attack

Megyn Kelly clapped back at White House press secretary Jen Psaki for clashing with Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy when she said his network makes “Anyone sound like a stupid son of a b**ch.”

According to the Conservative Brief Kelly made her comments during a program last week where she said that it was “literally” Psaki’s job to interact with reporters.

During her SiriusXM program, The Megyn Kelly Show, Kelly, herself a former Fox News host, discussed the incident with guest radio host Buck Sexton.

Psaki’s comment came during an appearance on the left-wing Pod Save America podcast where she was asked about Doocy and, according to Kelly, Psaki took “a shot at him” because he frequently “asks her tough questions.”

“She’s [Psaki] making the rounds, she’s going on Pod [Save] America, the far-left Obama guys have their podcast which is popular with liberals,” Kelly explained in the set-up. And while on there she gets asked about Peter Doocy and whether basically he’s a jerk…they ask her basically if he’s some sort of an a**hole.”

“And she basically says oh ‘he works for a network that feeds its questions to people in a way that would make anybody sound like a jerk,'” she added. “And I’m thinking to myself, ‘number one, I’ve worked at Fox News and they actually, unlike NBC News, they don’t feed the anchor the questions.’ … At Fox News, nobody ever wrote a question for me ever.”

“Not in a presidential debate, not on a big night, not on my nightly show, and I guarantee you nobody’s writing Peter Doocy’s questions for him,” Kelly continued. “And she [Psaki] decides to take a shot at him [Doocy]. Because he’s the only one willing to ask her tough questions.”

Sexton called Psaki’s response “pathetic” and that the only questions he is ever interested in were those asked by Doocyand said that the domestic issues that have gotten worse under the Biden Administration warrant questions.

“If we had a real press corps those press conferences would be testy, Megyn” Sexton noted. “It should be interesting.”

“Peter Doocy works for a network that provides people with questions that might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a b****,’” Kelly shared. “Because the question was, ‘is he really as much of a stupid son of a b as we think?”

“I know it’s annoying to be asked tough questions but it’s literally your job to answer them in that role,” she added. “And you’d do better to be honest. I mean even the president came out and tried to say that Doocy made up the basis for his questions about, you know, ‘you said you would respond in kind to Russia if it uses chemical weapons, was that smart?'”

Fox News put out a statement in which the network defended Doocy: “In his role as White House correspondent, Peter Doocy’s job is to elicit truth from power for the American public. His questions are his own, he is a terrific reporter and we are extremely proud of his work.”
