(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy pressed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the raise in taxes in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.

Doocy asked Monday if President Joe Biden will rescind his support for the Inflation Reduction Act, a budget reconciliation bill proposed by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, given that Biden promised not to raise taxes on anyone making $400,000 a year.

The press secretary confirmed the president’s continuing support for the bill.

“He promised it wasn’t going to raise taxes on anybody making less than $400,000 a year, but the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) says that is not true,” Doocy said.

“Well, that is incorrect,” Jean-Pierre said.

“So, the Joint Committee on Taxation, which you guys heralded as an effective body when you were selling the infrastructure package, is not to be trusted here?” he said.

The press secretary said the JCT report is “incomplete” because it does not include the benefits the legislation would provide to Americans. She added that several experts disputed the report for excluding the benefits it would have on clean energy, lowering the deficit and prescription drugs.

The bill, if passed, would mandate a 15% minimum tax on corporations making $1 billion or more in profits, Jean-Pierre continued.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was confronted with the undeniable evidence the White House lied about the president’s awareness of Hunter’s foreign business deals.

“Why is there a voicemail of the president talking to his son about his overseas business dealings if the president has said, ‘he’s never spoken to his son about his overseas business’?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“Well, first I’ll say that, what the president said stands,” Jean-Pierre replied. “So… if that’s what the president said, that, that is what stands.”

“He’s leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Doocy pushed back. “And he says, ‘I think you’re clear.’ How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?”

“I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop,” KJP says emphatically.

In June, a voicemail that Joe Biden left for Hunter Biden was found on the laptop that shows he knew about about his son’s shady business with China and lied about it.

It’s not just the evidence of Chinese foreign influence operations penetrating the Biden White House that is damning. It’s the blatant cover-up.

(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?’”
