The Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy is all that CNN’s Glory Boy Jim Acosta wishes that he was.
Peter Doocy has been one of the exceedingly few voices asking cogent and difficult questions to the Biden-Harris administration, despite the entire country falling apart under the negligent eye of the West Wing cosplayers.
Unlike some members of the Corporate Media in the White House Briefing Room, Doocy has a memory that lasts more than 5 minutes, is prepared to push back on the answers he’s given, and he isn’t an overt cheerleader willing to make excuses for the almost cartoonish failures of this administration.
He’s clearly a thorn in the side of President Joe Biden, who has sparred with him in the past. It was after taking a question from Doocy that Biden had that iconic photo that perfectly encapsulates the weakness of this administration.
But it isn’t just sparring with the President where Doocy shines.
Doocy and White House Press Secretary, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, clash swords rather frequently.
On Wednesday, Doocy asked what happened to Biden’s campaign trail promise that he was going to “shut down the virus.”
Psaki then blamed the American people for not doing enough.

PSAKI: “We’re working on it, Peter.”

Every death from the China Virus under Trump at the beginning of the pandemic was directly attributed to Trump, but under Biden, even after inheriting three vaccines through Operation Warp Speed, and additional months learning about this virus, deaths are attributed to the unvaccinated and “dangerous variants.” How convenient.
Doocy presses Psaki asking if Biden stands by his statement that he made on the campaign trail that, “anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States” now that deaths under Biden exceed that under Trump.

Next up, Doocy sets up a trap that the Prevaricating Authoritarian Smurf falls right into.
It’s a thing of beauty.
“Dr. Fauci, as you advised the President about the possibility of new testing requirements for people coming into this country, does that include everybody?” asked Doocy.
Fauci goes running into it.
“The answer is yes, because you know that the new, uh, the new regulation — if you want to call it that is that anybody and everybody that’s coming into the country needs to get a test within 24 hours of them getting on the plane to come here,” responded Fauci confidently.
“What about people who don’t take a plane and just — these border crossers come in in huge numbers…” pushes Doocy.
Fauci backpedals quickly and suggests that expelling people using Title 42 will stop infected people from coming into the country. Title 42 is a provision in U.S. Public Health Services Law that allows the government to “prevent the introduction of individuals during certain public health emergencies.” The current administration claimed to be using Title 42, but very few people were expelled under the new “humane” border policies of Biden-Harris.
Dr. Fauci: everyone entering the country needs to be tested for covid. Except for all the illegal immigrants. That’s a different issue. So absurdly hypocritical and ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/OYZNQ2topU

Fauci is so disingenuous here. We know that the illegal migrants aren’t being tested at the border and people who have the China Virus have been sent all over the country courtesy of the “Let’s Go Brandon” administration.
The practice of “catch and release” is way up under the Biden-Harris.
Remember when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that he didn’t want to “hear a blip about COVID” from President Biden until the border was secure?
It’s nice to see that there’s at least one reporter in the White House Press Pool that is willing to ask the tough questions rather than just work as propagandists for the regime.
