Once again today, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy managed to walk right into a humiliating takedown delivered by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, and video of the interaction is quickly going viral.
Doocy asked about the thousands of immigrants at the Texas-Mexico border, and Pskai made it clear they weren’t being allowed into the United States.
Doocy, however, decided to suggest otherwise, telling Psaki:
Psaki had the perfect comeback:
Doocy sarcastically replied:
Calmly, professionally, Psaki repeated her query to the Fox reporter:
Psaki then shut Doocy down by quoting the law to him:
“I’m not aware of pregnant women being a big issue of concern to people at the border. What I will note for you, Peter, is that, as I said earlier, there is a process. If people cannot be expelled under Title 42 for a range of reasons. Some of that is that countries they came from or other countries, including Mexico, may not be accepting families with children under the age of seven. They are placed in removal proceedings. Those removal proceedings require them to either go to a detention facility or require them to go get a notice to appear and including their biometric data and otherwise so that we can ensure where they are.”
You’d think that Peter Doocy would learn his lesson and stop trying to trip up Jen Psaki. Instead, he keeps asking moronic questions and proving why the only “news” network that will employ him is the one that also allows Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham to spew their disgusting lies each and every night.
