Fox News’ Stupid Son of a Doocy Asks Biden: Did You Underestimate ‘Worthy Adversary’ Putin?

President Joe Biden held a press conference on Thursday to inform the American people about what the administration is doing in response to Russia’s “unprovoked and unjustified” invasion of Ukraine (full video below). He revealed that the United States and it allies would immediately impose a set of severe economic sanctions to punish Putin’s brutal aggression. “Putin chose this war,” Biden said. “And now he and his country will bear the consequences.”

Fox News, Peter Doocy

Ordinarily, at times like these, the nation comes together to present a united front against such militaristic assaults on innocent and peaceful allies. However, Donald Trump’s Republican Party is already staking out a position that has been blatantly pro-Putin, as Trump has been doing himself.

So leave it to Fox News to contrive a question for Biden that frames the conflict in a decidedly warped perspective. When Biden called on Fox’s Peter Doocy, he asked the President the following question:

“Did you underestimate Putin and would you still describe him the way that you did in the summer, as a ‘worthy adversary’?”

With questions like this, can anyone fault Biden for having muttered under his breath last month that Doocy was a stupid son of a bitch? Someone needs to tell Doocy that his own question contradicts his biased premise. If Putin was described as “a worthy adversary,” then, by definition, he wasn’t underestimated. And that was the essence of Biden’s reply:

“I made it clear he was an adversary and I said that he was worthy. I didn’t underestimate him. … You heard the speech he made, almost an hour’s worth of speech as to why he was going into Ukraine. He has much larger ambitions than Ukraine. He wants to, in fact, reestablish the former Soviet Union. That is what this is about. And I think his ambitions are completely contrary to the place where the rest of the world has arrived.”

This is typical of how Doocy – and pretty much all of Fox’s openly partisan correspondents and pundits – approach questioning of Biden. There is no intention to obtain useful information or to bring understanding to their viewers. Their sole purpose is to create a negative narrative, and then to plant it into the minds of the willfully ignorant Fox audience.

That’s bad enough when it just involves conventional politics and policies. But when they use it to distort the circumstances surrounding a wartime crisis, it is irresponsible and destructive. And it can exacerbate the harm and hardships of both the American people and the victims of Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.

Unfortunately, the only thing that Fox News cares about is maligning Biden and the Democrats. And if it hurts the country and its interests, that’s just too bad. At Fox News, party and partisanship always come before country or the people.

    “No intention…” & “sole purpose”… So true & says it all, as far as what is wrong with our so-called “news media”. Namely, FauxNotNews. Free press” was never intended to allow anything & everything that liars want to lie about, to be broadcast & called “the news”!
    Free speech, as we know, has always had limits. Perhaps best known is… “You can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theater.”
    You can, if theater is truly on fire. But, you cannot be lying about it. Why not? Cuz’ lying about a fire would cause panic & harm people hearing that & believing it’s true; they’d all stampede to the exit at once. Some would be injured & die in resulting panic/chaos! No matter the intention, it’s a very dangerous lie! That’s where we ‘draw the line’ with free speech.
    Dangerous lies, stated as if factual, are NOT protected free speech!!
    Therefore, FauxNotNews is not protected free speech either! They lie 365 days a yr, multiple times a day – knowing full well that their lies will cause great harm to those who hear & believe their lies! Plus, harmful to others & to our nation, our unity, our democracy…could even kill us!
    Yet FauxSpewsNotNews is allowed to continue & has spawned more of the same vile lies to be broadcast as “news”. It’s as if every single day, these rt-wing liars are yelling “fire” in crowded theaters across the Country, causing great harm every day & night… & our gov’t allows it to go on & on…
