HAH! Jen Psaki Says Doocy’s Fox News Questions Would ‘Make Anyone Sound Like a Stupid S.O.B.’

Earlier this year President Biden held a press conference during which Peter Doocy of Fox News asked one his hallmark questions that have certified his place in the press corps as a shallow and partisan hack. It’s a role he has embraced on numerous occasions during the White House daily press briefings with Press Secretary, Jen Psaki.

Jen Psaki, Fox News, Peter Doocy

During the Biden press conference, Doocy asked the President “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” Biden diplomatically ignored the question whose premise was patently absurd. Of course inflation is a political liability. What did Doocy expect Biden to say?

However, a hot mic caught Biden as he muttered sarcastically under his breath “That’s a great asset – more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” Naturally, this was escalated to “scandal” proportions by Fox News and other rightist media. Even though Biden later graciously called Doocy and apologized for the remark that Doocy didn’t hear.

On Friday morning Psaki was a guest on the “Pod Save America” podcast when the subject came up again in a light-hearted segment. Psaki was asked if “Peter Doocy is a stupid son of a bitch or does he just play one on tv?” She replied that…

“He works for a network that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a bitch.”

Cue the Fox News ninnies as they flop into their fainting couches. Never mind that Psaki is actually giving Doocy the benefit of a doubt by blaming his idiotic inquiries on his bosses at Fox. The wingnut InterTubes went haywire with denouncements of Psaki’s alleged incivility. It’s almost as if they have never heard of Donald Trump’s relentlessly hateful, misogynistic, and racist assaults on the media as “fake,” “stupid,” “crooked,” and “enemies of the people.”

The entire exchange with Psaki was couched in good humor. But rather than appreciate that she was actually absolving Doocy of responsibility for some truly dumb questions, Fox News bounced the idiocy right back in Doocy’s lap. The network released a statement saying that…

“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.”

Anyone has watched more than a few minutes of Fox News knows that they have never cared about eliciting truth. Their prime directive is to spin, distort, and outright lie. That’s particularly true when it comes to the powerful conservative politicians they were created to serve. Nevertheless, Doocy’s Fox colleague, John Roberts, took to Twitter to defend him…

Okay then. Doocy is wholly responsible for his questions that make him look like a fool. If he wants that distinction, he can have it. So just for the record, let’s review some of Doocy’s questions that Fox News is so proud of…

Hopefully the debate over stupid S.O.B.’s can now be put to rest.

Biden Mocks ‘Silly’ Peter Doocy of Fox News for Asking Him to Divulge US Response to Russian War Crimes

Nothing thrills Fox News more than latching unto random remarks by President Biden that they can deceptively misrepresent as controversial, out of context sentence fragments to make him look bad. It’s a core component of what Fox regards as journalism. They appear to have a well staffed “gaffe” division that does nothing else but seek out these phony oratorical opportunities.

On Monday morning it was Peter Doocy’s turn to fire a barrage of these alleged bloopers at Biden. The President was returning from Poland where he had honored American soldiers aiding Ukraine in their defense against the Russian invasion. It was a productive trip that reinforced the NATO alliance and its commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty. But the media – particularly Fox News and others on the right – seemed fixated on a petty gaffe wherein Biden said what most of the world was thinking: that the heinous butcher Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.”

RELATED: Fox News Howls Hypocritically Over Biden Correctly Calling Peter Doocy a ‘Stupid Son of a B*tch’

That off the cuff comment sparked a firestorm of faux controversy about whether Biden was calling for regime change in Russia. But it was only a portion of the scandal mongering engaged in by Doocy. When called on by Biden at the press conference, the following exchange took place (video below):

Biden: I know you’re gonna ask a really nice question.
Doocy: Well, it’s an important question, I think. Are you worried that other leaders in the world are gonna start to doubt that America is back if some of these big things that you say on the world stage keep getting walked back?
Biden: What’s getting walked back?
Doocy: You made it sound like, just in these last couple of days, It sounded like you told the U.S. troops they were going to Ukraine. It sounded like you said it was possible the U.S. would use a chemical weapon. And It sounded like you were calling for regime change in Russia.

Notice that Doocy repeatedly referred to things he said “sounded like” something to be worried about. That’s your first clue that he was making up his outrage and basing it entirely on his spin. And the result that he implied was that world leaders would be put off by it. To the contrary, most foreign policy experts considered the trip an unqualified success. Biden responded to Doocy’s questions saying that…

Biden: None of those three occurred. You interpret the language that way. I was talking to the troops, we were talking about helping train the Ukrainian troops that are in Poland. That’s what the context is. I sat there with those guys for a couple of hours. That’s what we talked about.
Doocy: So when you said “You’re going to see when you’re there…”
Biden: I was referring to being with and talking with the Ukrainian troops that were in Poland.
Doocy: And when you said a chemical weapon used by Russia would trigger a response in kind?
Biden: It would trigger a significant response.
Doocy: What does that mean?
Biden: I’m not going to tell you. Why would I tell you? You’ve gotta be silly.
Doocy: The world wants to know.
Biden: The world wants to know a lot of things. I’m not telling them what the response would be. Then Russia knows the response.

Biden was pretty gentle with Doocy, by merely calling his question “silly.” He could have said it was “idiotic,” or “dangerous,” or otherwise astonishingly foolish to think that any President would disclose such privileged information in a televised press conference. But you can rest assured that when Fox News reports this they will characterize Biden as being snippy and disrespectful to the press. Never mind that they they adored Trump when he maligned the media as “fake” and “the enemy of the people,” and even fantasized about getting rid of them like Putin does.

Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

The old maxim that the “the first casualty of war is truth” has been wretchedly demonstrated by anti-American right-wingers since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Donald Trump has proved that he is both a liar and an idiot on this (or any) subject. And Fox News continues to politicize the slaughter of innocents for their own partisan purposes.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump Baby, Fake News

Meanwhile, President Biden is fulfilling his role as an American leader who cherishes the principles of democracy and liberty worldwide. His support for Ukraine has been forthright and unwavering. Unfortunately, he is burdened with having to educate Republican cretins who embrace Vladimir Putin and distort reality to advance their political self-interests.

In an address to the American people on Tuesday morning, Biden announced that the U.S. would cease to purchase Russian oil. That’s a move that has had bipartisan support in Congress. But he still had to debunk the lies that the right has been telling about oil production in the U.S. Which he did succinctly and, unlike the right, factually (video below):

“It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. That’s simply not true. Even amid the pandemic, companies in the United States pumped more oil during my first year in office than they did during my predecessor’s first year. We’re approaching record levels of oil and gas production in the United States, and we’re on track to set a record of oil production next year.

“In the United States, 90 percent of onshore oil production takes place on land that isn’t owned by the federal government. And of the remaining 10 percent that occurs on federal land, the oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9,000 permits to drill now. They could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year. They have 9,000 to drill onshore that are already approved. Let me be clear. They are not using them for production now. That’s their decision, These are the facts.”

These are facts that are already known to the GOP. They just don’t care about the truth because honesty hampers their political goals. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made these same points on Monday in a detailed, multi-part tweet. She also schooled Fox News hack Peter Doocy, who appeared utterly incapable of grasping the lesson:

Fox News, of course, is committed to lying about this. Following Biden’s remarks Fox’s David Asman complained that Biden “was making the same misstatement that Jen Psaki did, saying that we have the highest oil production ever, [and that] we are not producing as much oil as we could.” Except that neither Biden nor Psaki said that. What they said is that is that oil production is at a very high level, comparable to the past, and that the only we reason we aren’t producing more is that the oil companies are sitting on unused leases. Perhaps because they want to limit supply in order to boost prices.

Not to be left out, Trump had his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill post an all-caps, ego drenched tweet saying “BREAKING NEWS: HIGHEST GAS PRICES IN HISTORY! DO YOU MISS ME YET?”

As usual, Trump is purposefully misleading. For the record, “The average cost of a gallon of regular fuel is now $4.173, according to AAA. That’s the highest ever recorded, not accounting for inflation, surpassing the $4.114 high-water mark set in the summer of 2008. (That would be about $5.37 in today’s dollars.)”

What’s more, the vast majority of the American people (83%) support Biden’s sanctions on Russia, including most Republicans (80%). And more than two-thirds (69%) would still support the sanctions if they result in higher energy prices. That also includes almost 6 in 10 Republicans.

[UPDATE: Trump released another tweet babbling that “most of Europe won’t go along with the United States in boycotting Russian oil and gas.” He goes on to complain about the “Fake News” and Europe taking advantage of us. But he’s only proving that he doesn’t understand the pressures on Europe, that is more dependent on foreign oil. Trump also doesn’t understand the leadership that Biden is demonstrating by being an example for the rest of the world, who may join the Russian oil boycott as a result. He is just whining and, as usual, has no solutions.]

In Biden’s remarks he also noted that “the United States produces more oil domestically than all the European countries combined.” And he admonished the oil companies to refrain from exploiting the current crisis to gouge consumers. Then he closed with this bit of insightful advice for the future:

“Loosening environmental regulations and pulling back clean energy investment will not lower energy prices for families. But transforming our economy to run on electric vehicles powered by clean energy with tax credits to help American families winterize their homes and use less energy, that will help. And if we can, if we do what we can, it’ll mean that no one has to worry about the price of the gas pump in the future.

“That will mean tyrants like Putin won’t be able to use fossil fuels as weapons against other nations. And it will make America a world leader in manufacturing and exporting clean energy technology in the future to countries all around the world.”

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.

Fox News Howls Hypocritically Over Biden Correctly Calling Peter Doocy a ‘Stupid Son of a B*tch’

Every now and then a politician speaks from the heart and articulates a message that is honest and expresses what many already know to be true. And on Monday President Biden provided an exquisite example of just such a moment.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

At a White House event on the Biden administration’s efforts to combat inflation, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy shouted out a question that was typical of his tendency to turn questions into statements that advance the ultra-rightist narratives of Fox News. He should know better considering how often he is humiliated by that tendency. On this occasion, Doocy’s insolent inquiry led to this brief exchange:

Doocy: Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?
Biden (Sarcastically, to himself): That’s a great asset – more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.

Biden’s private observation – which was not directed at Doocy, who didn’t hear it – was an understandable reaction to a pointless question. It served no purpose other than to politicize an economic situation that is adversely affecting the American people, and that Biden is trying to resolve without assistance from the GOP.

Obviously high inflation would impact the midterm elections, if it is still present ten months from now. Perhaps Doocy should be reminded of James Carville’s famous political maxim that “It’s the economy, stupid.” Carville could have directed that straight at Doocy, but for the risk of hurting his feelings.

For the record, Biden called and apologized to Doocy shortly after. He didn’t have to, but it is what a conscientious adult would do. And Doocy accepted the apology. However, his confederates at Fox News were far less forgiving. In fact, they were fixated on what they tried to portray as a scandalous breach of presidential decorum. Which is evidence of their blinding hypocrisy and feigned ignorance of the atrocious behavior of their notoriously profane Dear Leader, Donald Trump.

For instance, Tucker Carlson was incensed by Biden’s whispered commentary, saying that…

“Today, Joe Biden, mistaking himself for an emperor, informed reporters that ‘we don’t want to hear any shouted questions about Ukraine [which Biden didn’t say], so Fox’s Peter Doocy, trying to be polite, tried to ask him a question about inflation.”

Carlson then played the video of Biden and went on to insult him saying “What a nasty old man,” and childishly maligned his mental acuity asserting that he “doesn’t remember saying it.”

It’s notable that Carlson called MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough “stupid” on the air just last week. He has not apologized. What’s more, when Fox News addressed this incident, they flagrantly misrepresented what happened saying “POTTY MOUTH: Raging Biden curses out Fox News’ Peter Doocy as he takes his bitterness towards the press to a new level.”

The video clearly shows that Biden was hardly “raging.” And there is no record of his having any bitterness toward the press. That was Trump, who repeatedly called the media “the enemy of the people.” As for who’s the “potty mouth”

Republicans, however, seem to have selective amnesia on this subject. Trump lawyer and Newsmax contributor, Jenna Ellis, asked via tweet, “Can you imagine if Trump said this to a reporter?” Sadly, we don’t have to imagine. Also, GOP insurrectionist Rep. Jim Banks, whose son works for Tucker Carlson, had the audacity to tweet this:

Seriously? Are Ellis and Banks really so brain damaged that they’ve forgotten all the times that Trump attacked and maligned the free press? Especially Black women. Here’s a reminder for them:

As it turns out, recognizing Doocy’s stupidity isn’t a partisan affair. A few years ago Republican Sen. John McCain said it to his face:

Fox News and the Trumpian Republican Party will undoubtedly keep fixating on this triviality. That’s because they can’t make a credible argument against Biden’s leadership and his agenda for the nation that most Americans support. So unfortunately we’ll have to expect more of these preposterous hysterics as we get closer to the midterm elections, and as the law gets closer to nailing Trump. It’s really all they have left.

UPDATE: GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson, Trump’s former White House “doctor,” told Brian Kilmeade of Fox News that “I’ve seen this multiple times with people the President’s age who are starting to have cognitive issues […] He’s not fit to be our head of state.” And Jackson is too dense and dishonest to see that his analysis didn’t apply at all to Biden, who was neither “short-tempered” nor “striking out” at anyone. But Trump fits his analysis to a tee.

Biden Gracefully Dispatches Fox News Hack Peter Doocy Who Asks Another Ridiculous Question

On the occasion of President Biden’s one year anniversary in the White House, he held a press conference to answer the many questions that the media has about the important issues of the day. Unfortunately, some members of the press corps don’t take this as seriously as it deserves.

Fox News, Peter Doocy

The press conference lasted a couple of hours as Biden sought to give everyone an opportunity to have their questions answered. However, some of the right-wing rabble grew impatient because they were so anxious to hear from Peter Doocy of Fox News. So they took to Twitter to complain that Biden was dodging him before the event was even over:


https://twitter.com/WeThePeople021/status/1483924783125483524

Shortly after these whiners lashed at Biden for being afraid of letting Doocy ask a question, you’ll never guess what happened. Biden called on Doocy, who proceeded to ask a question that would justify never being called on again. Biden greeted Doocy saying that “You always ask me the nicest questions. None of them make sense to me.” Followed by this exchange…

Doocy: Why are you trying so hard in your first year to pull the country so far to the left?
Biden: Well, I’m not. I don’t know what you consider to be too far to the left. In fact, I’m talking about making sure we had the money for COVID. Making sure we had the money to put together the bipartisan infrastructure. Making sure we were able to provide for those things that, in fact, would significantly reduce the burden on working class people, but make them have to continue to work hard. I don’t know how that pulls to the left. You may recall that you guys were trying to convince me that I am Bernie Sanders. I’m not. I like him. But I’m not Bernie Sanders. I’m not a socialist. I’m a mainstream Democrat and I have been. And mainstream Democrats have overwhelmingly noticed that 48 of the 50 supported me in the Senate on virtually everything I’ve asked.

So that was what the right-wingers were waiting for with such rapt anticipation? That was what they wrongly believed was the sort of question that Biden would avoid? And what do they have to say now that Biden not only called on Doocy, but politely replied to his preposterous inquiry?

What’s more, Biden also called on James Rosen of Newsmax, whose question was even worse:

Rosen: Why do you suppose such large segments of the American electorate have come to harbor such profound concerns about your cognitive fitness?
Biden: I have no idea.

Biden gave that question precisely the amount of time and consideration it deserved. What exactly did Rosen expect Biden to say? Did he think Biden might go into an extended discourse on his mental acuity? Perhaps Biden should have noted that members of a Yale conference concluded that Donald Trump is “too mentally ill to serve.” Or Biden could have reported that the American people overwhelmingly regard Trump as unfit for the duties of his office. Or maybe Biden should have mentioned the Fox News poll that found that a majority of voters said that Trump doesn’t have the mental soundness to serve.

If these questions by Doocy and Rosen are examples of the mental fitness of reporters from Fox News and Newsmax, the Biden White House would be entirely justified in declining their credentials for future press conferences. But then we would miss the humiliation they subject themselves to.

Peter Doocy and Fox News Probe the Burning Issues: Biden’s ‘Armageddon’ and Flaming Christmas Trees

Never let it be said that Fox News isn’t on top of the most pressing issues of the day. For example, it’s the network whose leading story for three days was the conviction in a county court of a former TV star for faking a hate crime. Meanwhile, they ignored the United States Supreme Court’s decision to allow Donald Trump’s White House records to be handed over to the congressional committee investigating his role in the January 6th insurrection.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

The editorial mission of Fox News has two basic objectives: 1) Manufacture frightening scenarios that it can associate with the Biden administration and/or Democrats, whether or not they are true. And 2) Feature trivial distractions if no such fear mongering stories are available.

On Sunday, CNN’s Brian Stelter provided a chilling supercut of Fox News presenting their vision of America in a catastrophic decline due to the deliberate mismanagement of “evil” President Biden. It featured terrifying clips of hate monger Sean Hannity warning that Biden is mentally incapacitated; the Fox and Friends “Curvy Couch” potatoes screaming that Biden is killing the economy and American families; professional liar Kayleigh McEnany ranting about inflation surging “just in time to ruin Christmas”; and the ever bombastic queen of box wine, Jeanine Pirro, exclaiming frantically that “This country is going to hell in a handbasket”. To which Stelter reasonably replied that “I would be so scared to leave the house if I watched that all day.” Watch the Fox News hysterics for yourself…

For the record, while there are surely challenges that the nation faces, there is also an unmistakable “Biden Boom” underway. But Fox News isn’t about to let reality interfere with their dramatization of dystopian dread. So Fox dispatched their White House wanker, Peter Doocy, to annoy Press Secretary Jen Psaki. And Doocy leapt straight into the meat of the day’s most pertinent issue:

“We’ve seen an arsonist burn down a half a million dollar Christmas tree in New York City back on the streets. Does the President think that’s good governing?”

That’s right. Fox News is still obsessing over the torching of their beloved fake Christmas tree by a mentally challenged homeless man. Doocy’s dumbfounding question (with an emphasis on the dumb) revealed that he has no comprehension of law enforcement matters. The President is not involved in state criminal affairs. And if Doocy was just looking to find out out if Biden approved of setting Christmas trees ablaze, what on Earth did he think Psaki would say? Did he think she would celebrate the act of arson? So Psaki politely put Doocy in his place – again:

“I think I’ve spoken for the President’s concerns about retail theft. If you have specific…any actions we’ve taken for specific cases, I would point you to the local police departments or the Department of Justice.”

Fox has tried to portray this as an attack on all of America, akin to 9/11. Even though it was just a case of random vandalism that roasted a holiday decoration that Fox says cost them $500,000.00. If that wire frame simulated shrub cost a half million dollars, Fox got royally screwed. The real tree that adorns the White House this year only cost $139,000.00, and that’s $30,000 less than the tree the Trumps got in 2019. Which is just more proof that Democrats are far better at managing money than Republicans.

Maybe Doocy should start an investigation into who ripped off Fox News for that now ashen plastic tree. Was it insured? How much did the replacement tree cost? Is it fireproof? Enquiring minds want to know.

Jen Psaki Shocks Fox News Hack Peter Doocy with Trump’s Deadly Record of COVID Mismanagement

The White House correspondent for Fox News, Peter Doocy, has made it his mission to try to construct blatantly biased questions during the White House press briefings. For the most part he has failed miserably, as press secretary Jen Psaki has easily batted his screwballs out of the park.

Psaki Lightening

Undeterred by repeated smackdowns, Doocy tried again on Wednesday. He chose for his lame attempt at a journalistic sucker punch a query about comparing the COVID fatalities during the Trump administration to those of the Biden administration. But his ignorance and inability to grasp that Psaki is his intellectual superior in every way, led to another embarrassing drubbing (video below):

Doocy: In 2021, when roughly 220,000 Americans had already died of COVID, Joe Biden said about Trump, “Anyone who was responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America.” Is that still the standard now that more Americans have died under President Biden?

Doocy really needs to be relieved if he didn’t see Psaki’s effortless response coming. He left her wide open for a crushing retort that blistered him and his offstage overseer, Donald Trump:

Psaki: I think the fundamental question here is what are you doing to save lives and protect people. And the former President was suggesting people inject bleach. He reportedly didn’t even share with people he was going to interact with that he tested positive for COVID himself. He continued to provide a forum for misinformation, which probably led to people not taking steps forward to protect themselves, to wear a mask, to eventually get vaccinated.

This President has made the vaccine widely available. He’s relied on the advice of his health and medical experts, and he is trying to be a part of solving this crisis, getting the pandemic under control. And I think there’s a pretty stark difference between their approaches.

If one didn’t know better, it would almost seem like Doocy was setting Psaki up to hit home runs. She masterfully exploited his leading question to remind everyone of how terribly Trump mismanaged the pandemic response. She exposed Trump’s ignorance, negligence, carelessness, and deliberate malfeasance. And she closed with the record of President Biden’s compassionate and competent leadership through harrowing times.

Doocy has the distinct disadvantage of being employed by the network that is most responsible for the misinformation about COVID that has resulted in their killing off their own viewers. It’s the network that has maligned the renowned and beloved Dr. Fauci as comparable to the Nazi sadist and murderer, Josef Mengele.

What’s more, Doocy is rehashing the poor math that suggests that Biden’s pandemic response is no better than Trump’s. That was thoroughly debunked here at News Corpse last week, noting that the massive growth in infections and fatalities during the Trump years was turned around into spectacular declines by Biden:

“In real terms, during Trump’s last year in office the number of fatalities went from 10 (when Trump said it would soon decline back to zero) to 400,000, an increase of four million (4,000,000!) percent. During Biden’s first year in office the number of fatalities went from about 400,000 to 800,000, an increase of only 100 percent. That’s a fatality rate percentage decline of 99.9975 percent. So it is brazenly dishonest to say that Biden did no better than Trump. The truth is that during Biden’s term the United States went from 4000 people dying every day by the end of Trump’s term, to about 1,000 deaths a day under Biden, A decline of 75 percent.”

Doocy may or may not be aware of these facts. But he clearly doesn’t care. All he’s interested in is sandbagging the press secretary. It’s just too bad that he is so painfully terrible at it. But you have admit that he has an astonishing tolerance for the humiliation he endures nearly every day.

Fox News Hack Peter Doocy Wages War on Thanksgiving, Press Sec Jen Psaki Slaps Him Down

This week Americans across the country will be gathering to celebrate the Thanksgiving holidays with their families. It’s a longstanding tradition that brings people together for feasts and fellowship. However, it is not without controversy. And like Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, and every other traditional holiday, Fox News is convinced that there is a war on it.

Jen Psaki, Fox News, Peter Doocy

This year, however, it is Fox News itself that has declared a War on Thanksgiving. And the first attack was launched in the White House Press Briefing Room by Fox’s own Peter Doocy:

Doocy: The President said today, he said that he was sent here to look out for these middle-class families who are strained right now. So what should they read into his leaving now at this time of great personal financial hardship for so many to go to Nantucket for the week?
Psaki: Well, first I would say, Peter, that I hope you’re spending time with your family. I’m spending time with my family. I hope everybody in here is spending time with their families. This is a time to put politics aside, spend time with your loved ones, and talk about what you’re grateful for. I will also tell you that spending some time with this President and with past presidents, that you are President no matter where you are.

So Doocy thinks that President Biden has to answer for his desire to spend Thanksgiving with his family? He thinks that it is somehow inappropriate for the President to celebrate the holiday the same way every other American does. And he thinks that Biden can’t perform his presidential duties wherever he happens to be. According to Doocy, if Biden congregates with his family he is failing his obligations to the nation.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki replied to Doocy’s asinine inquiry by gently shredding the whole premise of his question. Then she schooled him like child about how the modern presidency is not a job that must be tied down to a particular place. He is also ignoring everything that Biden is currently doing to address the financial hardships that people are going through.

What went unsaid is that if Biden had canceled his family’s holiday plans, Doocy would have asked why the President hates Thanksgiving. It hardly matters what the facts of any circumstance are, Fox News will endeavor to construct a question that attempts to make the President look bad. If Biden walked on water, Fox News would report that he can’t swim. If he cured cancer, Fox News would report that he’s putting doctors out of work.

The knee-jerk negativity of Fox News has no boundaries for ethics or honesty. If Biden got 200 million Americans vaccinated, opened up schools and businesses, reduced unemployment to 4.6%, restored the nation’s international reputation, and passed a historic infrastructure bill that prepared America for the future, created jobs, and mitigated some of the most harmful causes of climate change, Fox News would malign him as a mentally deficient socialist.

Oh wait. Biden did do all of those things, and Fox News does attack him for it. At least Fox is consistent with their factless bashing of all things Democratic and their ultra-rightist propaganda.

Biden Trashes Fox News Hack for ‘Garbage’ Question About Immigrant Children

President Biden announced on Wednesday that children 5-11 can begin receiving the vaccination for COVID-19. It’s a significant step toward protecting all Americans and restoring some semblance of normalcy as kids return to school.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

After the announcement, the President took questions from the press. And true to form, Fox News’ White Correspondent, Peter Doocy, managed to swerve so far off course he ended up in a landfill in another county. The exchange began with Biden having a little fun at Doocy’s expense, saying “This ought to be good,” as he called on him. And then they engaged in the following exchange:

Doocy: About the way forward, Mr. President, as you were leaving for your overseas trip there were reports that were surfacing that your administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who were separated from their families at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly $1 million per family. Do you think that that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?
Biden: If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah. But it’s not true.
Doocy: So this is a garbage report?
Biden: Yeah. $450,000 per person, is that what you are saying?
Doocy: That were separated from a family member under the last administration.
Biden: That’s not going to happen.

It’s curious that Doocy would even bring up the subject of how Donald Trump enacted policies that resulted in more than 5,600 children being ripped from their parents with no process in place to keep track of them or to reunite the families. It’s a crime against humanity that was designed purposefully to punish innocent babies.

Biden’s response characterized Doocy’s question perfectly. It is a “garbage” assertion to raise the matter of compensation for the families that were harmed without acknowledging that such compensation would only be paid as the result of litigation or settlement by the victimized parties.

Biden could have been more clear about that in his response, but he was likely more interested in preventing Doocy’s false premise from becoming perceived as factual. The truth is that

“Thousands of migrant parents and children separated from each other at the U.S. border by Trump administration policies may soon be eligible for hundreds of thousands of dollars per person in compensation, according to three sources familiar with ongoing negotiations in a lawsuit brought on behalf of separated families.” […]

“The talks are part of negotiations between the Justice Department and lawyers representing the separated families in a number of tort cases that have claimed the families experienced harm when they were forcibly separated.”

There hasn’t been any dollar amount agreed to. However, if/when there is, it will surely far less than the potential judgment awarded should the matter go to trial. So the Biden administration’s solution will undoubtedly save hundreds of millions of dollars, while still having the decency to provide compensation so that the families can heal.

Biden’s response also noted the ludicrous suggestion that any compensation “might incentivize more people to come over illegally.” Doocy knows that the only people who would be eligible for compensation are those whose families were torn apart by Trump’s sadistic policies. So he seems to think that having your family destroyed would be appealing to migrants who are fleeing the poverty and violence that was traumatizing them in their home countries.

Fox News and Republicans have been at the forefront of encouraging migrants to come to the U.S. They have repeatedly advertised the fallacy of “open borders” with the intention that it draw migrants whom they they could then condemn for coming here.

So while the Biden administration is discouraging people from coming to the U.S., Fox News is making it sound like they will get free entry and cash bonuses for doing so. And all of this so that they can blame Biden because the migrants believed what Fox News told them. If anyone should be paying compensation it’s Fox News.
