It has become an almost daily ritual that Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy will ask an utterly moronic question or make a brainless remark that quickly gets shot down by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
So by now you might think that Doocy would dial back some of his BS and act the way a journalist is supposed to: Ask tough, fair questions and not try to get into a debate when the person he’s asking is happy to answer whatever queries he might have.
However, Doocy is clearly a masochist and enjoys getting reprimanded by Psaki on a level that’s too disgusting and perverse to contemplate for more than two seconds before it makes your teeth ache.
Such was the case yet again on Friday at the daily White House press briefing when Doocy referenced a speech President Joe Biden made this week in Atlanta about voting rights and asked:
Actually, here’s what the president said:
It’s eminently clear that Biden didn’t describe anyone as Bull Connor or George Wallace. What he rhetorically asked is, Whose side would you rather be on? Make your choice carefully.
And that’s exactly what Psaki told Doocy, pointing out the flaws in his question and setting the record straight:
“I think everybody listening to that speech, who’s speaking on the level, as my mother would say, would note that he was not comparing them as humans. He was comparing the choice to those figures in history and where they’re going to position themselves, if they as it – as they determine whether they’re going to support the fundamental right to vote or not.”
There’s an old saying we have in the South that applies to Peter Doocy and other conservatives who were “offended” by President Biden’s speech: A hit dog will holler. In other words, if you felt attacked by something someone said, it probably means you’re guilty and are hollering because it hit a bit too close to home.
