Fox News’ Peter Doocy, another reporter who doesn’t lob softballs at the press secretary, often has to fight to get straight answers to his questions. In September, Doocy asked Jean-Pierre what they call it at the White House when “10,000 people illegally cross the border in a single day.” When Jean-Pierre’s attempt at deflection didn’t work, she lost her temper and moved on without answering the question.
Jean-Pierre is fortunate that her boss is a Democrat. She would have to ignore and antagonize most of the press corps if he were a Republican. A press secretary who runs away from tough questions is like a firefighter who runs away from a big fire. She’s in the wrong job.
JUST IN: Karine Jean-Pierre straight up refused to answer Peter Doocy’s question about how 10,000 illegals are entering our country every single day.She tried to ignore the question and Doocy wasn’t having any of it. This is so pathetic. pic.twitter.com/Y97P1SPEaz — Christian Collins (@CollinsforTX) September 21, 2023
