Fox News reporter Peter Doocy has made it his life’s mission to make White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki look bad, but he invariably falls short. Yesterday, Doocy asked Psaki if “Joe Biden has ever been to the southern border.” When Psaki essentially said she didn’t know, Doocy went on to explain, “we have been looking all morning and we cannot find any record of him visiting the border as president, vice president, senator, or even as a concerned citizen. Why would that be?” This is simply put a “gotcha question” because Doocy apparently already knew the answer to it, having “researched it all morning.” His hope was to either catch Psaki in a lie or make it look as though Joe Biden doesn’t care about immigration and the situation at the Mexican border. Psaki explained that, “the president certainly relies on his experience. So whether it was the work he did to address root causes as vice president, his efforts when he was in the Senate to support comprehensive immigration reform . . . he uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs, how he approaches challenges . . . ” This question from Doocy is bogus for another reason as well, which is that there’s really not much Biden can learn about the influx of migrants from visiting there himself. That point simply gets overlooked by Doocy framing the narrative in such a way.
