Fox’s Doocy Has His Way Again with WH Press Secretary Jean-Pierre – Watch
This matchup between Fox News journalist Peter Doocy and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre just keeps getting better and better! Doocy once again smashed his way through the White House narratives with the power and grace of a prizefighter.
This week, the Fox News hero took on Biden’s fake story on gas prices during the briefing at the White House.
Biden wanted to ride off into the sunset in victory for lowering gas prices months ago, but there have been crickets since the surge in pricing again.
“You said the president was responsible for gas prices coming down. Is the president responsible for gas prices going up?” Doocy asked on Tuesday.
“So, it’s a lot more nuanced than that, right?” Jean-Pierre responded.
“Peter, you know this. There have been global challenges that we have all have dealt with, when I say ‘all’ I mean other countries, as well, have dealt with, since the pandemic, there’s been pandemic and there’s been [Russian Federation President Vladimir] Putin’s war,” she continued.
“And Putin’s war has increased gas prices at the pump. We have seen that over the past several months,” Jean-Pierre added. “And what the president has been able to do, he took some historic steps, when you think about the strategic petroleum reserve, and making sure that he, we were able to do everything that we can to bring that cost down for American families, give them a little bit more of a breathing room.”
Doocy didn’t let it go, reminding Jean-Pierre that some people in the country were paying up to $6.41 a gallon for gas.
“Who can afford that?” he asked.
“And we understand that!” Jean-Pierre responded. “That’s why the president works so hard the past several months to make sure he did everything we can to bring gas prices down!”
Despite the drop, Americans are still paying about $1.50 more, or 60% more, than they did when Biden was inaugurated in January 2021.
