(RepublicanWire.org) – An audio recording recently leaked of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shamefully saying White House correspondent Peter Doocy of Fox News “sounds like a stupid son of a b****.” Psaki’s comment came in response to a question from a left-wing podcast host. She went on to explain that this isn’t Doocy’s fault, but rather that Fox News as a network makes anyone sound like a “stupid son of a b****.”
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly blasted Psaki for the remark. Kelly says Psaki took “a shot at him” because he “asks her tough questions.” Most of the liberal mainstream media hand Psaki softball questions that aim to make the Biden administration look good.
Kelly explains, “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. 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,’” Kelly 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.”
Political commentator Buck Sexton called Psaki’s response “pathetic” and said the only questions worth hearing to him are Doocy’s.
In response, Fox News released a statement that reads: “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.”
“If we had a real press corps those press conferences would be testy, Megyn” Sexton said. “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****,’” the podcast host 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?’”
