Fox News trolls White House spokesperson, Karine Jean-Pierre, ‘who responds if nuke launched post 8pm?’


Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre engaged in a sharply worded and sarcastic exchange, focusing on President Biden’s evening unavailability and who calls the shots if a nuclear threat arises after 8 pm, will it be the First Lady.

Doocy’s pointed question came just days after President Biden informed governors that he planned to limit his evening schedule to ensure he gets more sleep. This remark set the stage for Doocy’s biting inquiry.

Peter opened his line of questioning with, “We know the president says his health is fine and it’s just his brain…”

Karine swiftly interjected, “The president was joking, you know he loves to joke, and this was a joke. He says I look like a 40-year-old. So, you know he jokes, and this was a joke.”During his conversation with the governors, Biden had quipped, “I’m fine — I don’t know about my brain, though.” Jen O’Malley Dillon, Biden’s campaign chairwoman, affirmed that the president was “clearly making a joke and then said, ‘All kidding aside.’”
