    MSNBC on Friday refused to deny that outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki had signed a deal to become its new star host after it was claimed some staff were angered by her alleged hiring.  Psaki, 43, carried out her last press briefing on Friday, fighting to hold back tears at the end of a 16 month stint that saw her hold 224 briefings - more than all four of Donald Trump's press secretaries combined. On Friday evening, a spokesman for the network refused to confirm what is believed to be the worst-kept secret in TV news - that Psaki left her prestigious job to launch a career with the liberal network.   In April news broke that she was in talks with various news broadcasters about a post-White House role, and it rapidly emerged that she was in exclusive talks with MSNBC for a multi-million dollar contract to have her own show.  Questions were asked how she could continue to do her job impartially while in contractual negotiations with one of the media outlets she dealt with daily. Psaki...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki again was forced to explain to Fox News propagandist Peter Doocy something very simple – exactly what President Joe Biden meant earlier on Wednesday when he warned that conservatives at some point might try to ban LGBTQ kids from classrooms. “What happens if you have a state change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?” President Biden pondered, as a warning. “What are the next things that are going to be attacked?” Biden asked. “Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history.” During the White House daily press briefing Doocy asked, “What is he talking about?” as if the President had not been extremely clear. “Well, I think Peter, we’ve seen extreme laws that target LGBTQ families, their kids across the country, and I think what he’s saying is we don’t know what they’re capable of given what they’ve already done to date.” Appearing to try to not understand the concept of a hypothetical, Doocy pressed on....
    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy clashed with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday about 42 migrants caught at the Southern Border whose names are on the Terrorist Screening Database, commonly referred to as the terrorist watchlist. Doocy asked Psaki why Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wouldn’t say where the 42 are located. “We know where those 42 individuals are on the TSDB, the terrorist screening database,” Mayorkas told CNN on Sunday. “Why isn’t he saying ‘we know where the 42 are. They’re in jail’?” asked Doocy. “Well, Peter, I would really point you to the Department of Homeland Security to get more follow-up details on his comments,” said Psaki. “I know he’s spoken extensively at a had a range of hearings and obviously on a range of Sunday shows yesterday including on Fox, I believe.” “So what is the president’s priority, potentially stopping terrorist attacks or letting these migrants come in?” asked Doocy. “Well, again, I think, as we noted just a couple weeks ago when there was reporting about the numbers being stopped at the border,...
    Fox correspondent Peter Doocy frequently faces off against White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, whom he routinely asks combative questions. On Monday, Doocy asked about the mask mandates on planes and the recent ruling by a conservative judge to eliminate the mask mandate while traveling. Doocy asked why the White House doesn't need to have masks on while masks are necessary on a plane. "Well, Peter, I'm not a doctor and you're not a doctor, that I'm aware of," Psaki said. "If you're a doctor I wasn't aware of that until today." "I'm not," Doocy conceeded. "Ok, well, not a doctor. Just making sure," Psaki said. "I don't know." "Or do you play one on TV?" the reporter to Doocy's right asked. "Nor does he play one on TV," said Psaki. "There you go. Most days." She went on to explain to him how the masking guidance works with the color-coded system "green, yellow and red." Washington, D.C. is in a green zone. See the video below: From Your Site Articles
    Frequent CNN guest Lynn Sweet went after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for her recent comments about Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy. Sweet, the Washington Bureau Chief for the Chicago Sun-Times, joined CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday for a Reliable Sources discussion about a variety of hot topics, including; the Republican National Committee’s vote to withdraw from presidential debates hosted by the Commission on Presidential Debates and President Joe Biden’s limited media presence. Eventually, the conversation shifted to Psaki’s live comments on the Pod Save America podcast, wherein she took a swing at Doocy’s questions for her at White House press briefings. Psaki was asked if Doocy is a “stupid son of a bitch,” or if he just plays one on TV. This was an allusion to the infamous moment when President Joe Biden said that about Doocy before he later attempted to clear the air. “He works for a network that provides people with questions that — nothing personal to any individual, including Peter Doocy — might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a...
    CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter has defended the White House press secretary after she called the Fox News correspondent 'a son of a b***h', saying she's possibly just 'tired of all this' after two years on the job and 'maybe sharing how she really feels.'  Jen Psaki was asked on Thursday night, during a live recording of the podcast Pod Save America in Washington, D.C., if Peter Doocy was a 'stupid son of a b***h' or just played one on TV.  On January 24, President Joe Biden was caught on a hot mic calling Doocy a 'stupid son of a b***h' after Doocy asked Biden if inflation was a political liability for him.  '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 b***h,' Psaki replied.  The episode was released online Friday.  Stelter on Friday was asked by CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota for his response to the ensuing uproar. Camerota described Doocy as 'a thorn in the side' of Psaki, then asked:...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked during a Pod Save America taping if Fox News Channel's White House correspondent Peter Doocy was a 'stupid son of a b***h' or just played one on TV.  '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 b***h,' Psaki replied during the Pod's D.C. taping Thursday night.  The episode was released online Friday.  Psaki also said President Joe Biden would not be traveling to Ukraine, despite him telling reporters Thursday morning that, 'yeah,' he was up for the trip.  'No, no,' she assured the podcast hosts. 'He is ready, he's ready for anything, the man likes a fast car, some aviators, he's ready to go to Ukraine.'  'We are not sending th president to Ukraine,' Psaki said.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked during a Pod Save America taping if Fox News Channel's White House correspondent Peter Doocy was a 'stupid son of a b***h' or just played one...
    During an appearance on a live show for the podcast Pod Save America, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reportedly shredded Fox News when she was asked about Peter Doocy, the network’s White House correspondent. The podcast is set to drop on Friday (after the publication of this article). POLITICO White House Correspondent Eugene Daniels flagged the remark, which was made during a live recording at The Anthem in Washington, D.C. on Thursday night. Daniels said Psaki was asked if “Peter Doocy is a stupid son of a bitch or does he just play one on TV?” She reportedly responded, “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.” Jen Psaki is asked if “Peter Doocy is a stupid son of a bitch or does he just play one on tv:” “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...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reaffirmed the administration’s opposition to Florida’s HB 1557, which was signed into law last month by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). The press secretary did not give the age she felt it was appropriate to have classroom discussions on gender identity and sexual orientation, which Florida’s new law prohibits in public schools from kindergarten through third grade. “At what age does the White House think that students should be taught about sexual orientation and gender identity?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked during a Monday press conference. Psaki did not provide a direct answer to the question and instead referred to Florida’s bill as promoting “hateful” policies, calling it the “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” a popular nickname among critics who say the short bill’s vague language could lead to LGBTQ discrimination going forward in schools. “What we think it’s a reflection of is politicians in Florida propagating misinformed, hateful policies that do absolutely nothing to address the real issues,” Psaki said. “The Department of Education is well-positioned and ready to evaluate what to do next and its...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki objected when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy made the clear suggestion that President Joe Biden might be lying about his communications with another world leader. At Wednesday’s press briefing, Doocy asked Psaki about remarks the president made at a press conference recently regarding his conversations with Chinese President Xi Jinping. After a series of questions about the Russia/Ukraine situation, Doocy asked “On Covid origins, you guys are talking a lot about sanctions for Russia if they dare to invade Ukraine. What about sanctions for China at any point for misleading the world about the early days of the global pandemic?” “We have used sanctions as a tool as it relates to our concerns about the behavior of a range of countries, including officials in China. But I have nothing to preview for you at this point,” Psaki replied, and reiterated the same when Doocy rephrased on follow-up. “So then my last thought would be, if the president said for months that he had not spoken directly to Xi about the Covid origins investigation, now he...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took a shot at former President Donald Trump when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked about a Biden official’s tweet. At Tuesday’s press briefing, Doocy asked Psaki about a tweet from Secretary of State Antony Blinken in which the administration’s top diplomat expressed solidarity with Ukraine. I #StandWithUkraine. @StateDept stands with Ukraine. The United States stands with Ukraine. https://t.co/7Vj0amAf22 — Secretary Antony Blinken (@SecBlinken) January 22, 2022 “The secretary of state, a few days ago, tweeted ‘I #StandWithUkraine,” Doocy said, and asked “Has that ever worked at stopping an authoritarian regime from doing anything? A hashtag?” Psaki used the question as an opportunity to take a shot at Trump. “I will have to say that, unlike the last administration, we don’t think Twitter is the only means of engaging or negotiating or discussing important topics,” Psaki deadpanned. She also snarked at Doocy’s network. “But it is important for us to convey to the Ukrainian people, who do view commentary through a range of forums — I don’t know how many are Fox...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki very pointedly declined to say that President Joe Biden “regrets” calling Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch” into a hot mic. The media has been abuzz since Monday, when Biden roasted Doocy as a “stupid son of a bitch” on a live microphone at the end of a photo op with the White House Competition Council — immortalized for all time in an official White House transcript. Doocy took the jab in stride, and later recounted a cordial phone call with the president in which Biden smoothed things over — but Doocy was asked if the president apologized when recounting the call to Sean Hannity, and repeatedly declined to call it an apology. At Tuesday’s press briefing, CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steve Portnoy attempted to close that loop. “Forgive me, it’s sort of the elephant in the room,” Portnoy began. “Many people in the country were talking about last night this morning.” “Does the president regret saying what he said about Peter? Can you shed some light if you...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki objected when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy tried to rephrase her reply to a question about school mask mandates. At Friday’s press briefing, Doocy asked Ms. Psaki about school boards who are trying to reinstate mask mandates that were rescinded by Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin. Doocy cited the lawsuits, and asked “So who does the President think knows best for students: school board members or parents?” Psaki replied that President Joe Biden “believes that public health officials have the best guidance on what we can all do to protect ourselves, including teachers, administrators, and students.” She reminded Doocy that school decisions are handled at the local level and that according to science, “masks reduce transmissions in school. They are a proven tool that helps keep students and teachers safe from COVID. And they can thus help keep schools open and safe.” Psaki also cited officials in Texas flouting public health guidelines and asked “Why is that? I think that has more to do with politics than it does with public health.” Doocy cited Youngkin’s order and...
    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy pushed back against the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday when she appeared to deflect a question related to the Chinese President Xi Jinping and the origins of COVID-19. “Since President Biden had a call with Xi, and on that call we know that he did not press him to help with the COVID origins investigations because you said that Xi just understands he’s supposed to be transparent,” said Doocy. “In the two plus weeks since, has he helped and has he been transparent?” Doocy asked Psaki. WATCH: “I don’t believe that’s exactly what I said,” Psaki responded, “I believe what I said is that we have pressed for this repeatedly, we will continue to, and will continue to do that at a range of levels.” “I don’t, unfortunately, have any updates on the participation or the willingness of the Chinese to add and provide additional data,” Psaki said before referring to a question from the previous day about retail theft and crime.

    Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki why President Joe Biden has yet to visit the victims of the Waukesha massacre during a press briefing Monday. The suspect, Darryl Brooks, allegedly drove his car through a Christmas Parade on Nov. 21 in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Biden condemned the attack and stated that his administration was monitoring the situation closely. However, Doocy pressed Psaki in the briefing on why Biden has yet to visit the victims despite fresh details from prosecutors. “Since the president said that this administration is monitoring this situation closely,” Doocy asked Psaki, “It has been revealed by prosecutors that the assailant swerved his truck side-to-side, as part of an intentional act, to run over as many people as possible.” “Why hasn’t the president visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?” Doocy asked. Doocy: “Since [Biden] said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has revealed…the assailant swerved his truck side-to-side to run over as many people as possible…Why hasn’t [he] visited the members of this Christmas...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki sparred with Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy on Friday over President Joe Biden not having been to the Southern Border yet. During the town hall, Biden was asked by moderator Anderson Cooper when he will visit the Southern Border. “I’ve been there before, I know it well, I guess I should go down,” said Biden. “The whole point of it is, I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down.” During the White House press briefing, Doocy asked Psaki why Biden said during the CNN town hall on Thursday that he has been to the border. “Well, Peter, as you may have seen, there has been some reporting that he did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008 and he is certainly familiar with the fact, and it’s stuck with him, with the fact in El Paso the border goes right through the center of town,” replied Psaki. “But what the most important thing everyone should know and understand is that the president has...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pushed back on Fox News’ Peter Doocy for putting forth the idea that President Joe Biden’s attitude towards the Justice Department is comparable to that of former President Donald Trump. On Monday, Doocy noted that Biden told reporters last week he supports the Justice Department prosecuting people who defy subpoenas from the January 6 House Select Committee. This prompted Doocy to ask “Why did the president break his promise not to enter into any decisions about what cases the Justice Department should bring and not bring?” Psaki asked Doocy what “promise” Biden supposedly broke, so Doocy asked why didn’t Biden say he would leave that decision up to the Justice Department. Psaki responded by referring back to her previous statement that “January 6th was one of the darkest days in our democracy,” and that [Biden] believes in the Department of Justice’s purview and independent decision-making. “That continues to be his view, and that continues to be how he will govern,” Psaki said. “That is not what he said,” Doocy retorted, and Psaki countered...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki went head-to-head with Fox News' Peter Doocy once again on Friday as she insisted President Joe Biden wasn't trying to use his stature to help his sick friend secure a spot at a crowded hospital, as the president claimed he did yesterday. The Fox News reporter asked Psaki how often Biden makes cold calls to 'help his friends cut the line.'  Psaki countered him and said the president was simply 'checking in on a friend.'  At her daily White House news briefing, Doocy recounted an anecdote Biden told during his trip to Illinois in which he described calling a 'backed up' hospital to ask why his friend's wife couldn't get a hospital bed despite a high fever and having trouble breathing. 'What happened next?' Doocy asked. Before Psaki answered she insisted on providing 'context' to the 78-year-old leader's speech.  'The context of why the president told this story, which I think is important, and I promise I'll answer your question, is that he was expressing that hospitals, frontline workers - nurses, doctors in emergency...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday condemned leftist activists who followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) into a bathroom, harassing her and demanding she support the controversial $3.5 trillion reconciliation package that the progressive caucus prefers. On Monday, President Joe Biden, when asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy for his reaction to the harassment of Sinema – in addition to kayakers in Washington, D.C., who approached the yacht Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in protest to his opposition to the bill – said, “I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics, but it happens to everybody. The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have secret service standing around them. It’s a part of the process.” Later, during the White House press briefing, Doocy asked Psaki, “A group of activists followed Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a ladies room screaming about the Build Back Better plan yesterday. The president says I don’t think they are appropriate, but it happens to everybody and it’s part of the process. He is an expert on the process. Has he ever been...
    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy defended White House press secretary Jen Psaki when “Fox & Friends” host Will Cain called her “condescending” during Monday morning’s show. Doocy told the Fox & Friends panel that he asked Psaki why President Joe Biden hadn’t been to the border. Psaki failed to give him an answer and instead asked Doocy what he expected the president to do at the southern border. “It was an incredibly condescending and defensive answer she gave you,” Cain said. “‘What would you expect him to do, Peter, at the border?'” “I wouldn’t necessarily say that, but, it’s just, we’re not getting information,” Doocy responded. “Like, there are people all across the country but especially in the border sectors who want to know why is it that when there is a crisis, for example, like a hurricane or a wildfire and the president will go, show up to find out what the people on the ground need – and he will do that, but not this.” (RELATED: ‘We Can’t Find Any Record’: Peter Doocy Confronts Jen Psaki,...
