White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is under fire after doubling-down on a blistering and profane attack against Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy.
Politico White House Correspondent Eugene Daniels reports the remark 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.”
Nationally-syndicated radio host Todd Starnes defended Doocy and Fox News Channel.
“Jen Psaki disqualified herself from the position of White House Press Secretary with her vulgar attack on Fox’s Peter Doocy. She should be removed from her office immediately,” Starnes wrote on Twitter.
It’s not the first time the Biden administration has attacked the Fox News correspondent.
President Biden was caught on a hot mic sarcastically responding to a question from the Fox News reporter.
“No, it’s a great asset,” Biden said. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”
