White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre smacks down peter Doocy

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy got smoothly smacked down by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre after he suggested that President Joe Biden was involved in a “cover-up” in the handling of classified documents. Doocy also attempted to put the Press Secretary on the spot over the controversy by asking an improper question.

“When you found out that the FBI had located even more classified materials in Wilmington, which four-letter word did you use?” Doocy asked, prompting laughter from the press corp.

Jean-Pierre laughed off the question, only saying, “Oh my goodness, Peter.”

But she was less amused when he suggested President Biden was involved in a “cover up.”

“The House Oversight Committee chairman says this document situation has all the makings of a potential coverup,” Doocy said. “Is President Biden involved in a cover up?”

Jean-Pierre proceeded to make clear that this is not a laughing matter.

“We’ve been very clear here from this administration,” she replied. “The President has been very clear that he takes this very seriously when it comes to that, when it comes to classified information, when it comes to classified documents, and that his team has been has been fully cooperative with this legal matter.”

Appearing to draw a line in the sand, Jean-Pierre continued: “Anything else, Peter?”

“I’m going to be very serious. You asked me kind of a question that everybody laughed at, which was interesting question to ask,” she said, referring to his “four-letter word” question, which she implied was inappropriate.

“But, any other underlying questions that you may have, I would refer you to my colleagues, the White House Counsel, I’m going to continue to be prudent. I’m going to continue to be consistent, and refer you,” she replied, shutting him down.
