White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki quickly shot back at Fox reporter Peter Doocy after he compared President Joe Biden to Donald Trump.
The quick-witted official has made humiliating Doocy into a sport followed closely by the internet. But this time, she made it hurt.
Get the Daily Brief
The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
“Well, since you gave me the opportunity here…” Psaki started after Doocy insinuated that Biden was wielding the Department of Justice (DOJ) for his own personal whims like Trump did.
“Former president Trump used his office to incite an insurrection. He put political pressure on senior DOJ officials to propagate lies about the election to the point that they threatened to resign en masse.
“I think there’s hardly a comparison.”
Psaki’s constant takedowns of Fox News reporter Peter Doocy tickle the internet every time and has launched the hashtag #PsakiBomb. Every day he tries to ask a “gotcha” question – and every day he comes up empty-handed and ends up looking like an idiot.
Psaki has quickly emerged as the most popular and engaging Biden administration official with her quick wit and forthright manner. After four years of Trump flunkies blatantly lying, attacking reporters over negative coverage, and avoiding outlets other than rightwing media, Americans and reporters have found her refreshing and honest.
Psaki calling bullshit on Doocy is the perpetual Play Of The Day on Twitter.

Peter Doocy loves his daily spankings by Jen Psaki.
She needs to start charging him.
