I will say this much, one of the best “weapons” in our arsenal right now is Peter Doocy.
This guy gives Jen Psaki nightmares, and it’s hilarious to watch – but he’s actually really, really effective.
Doocy is like Jim Acosta, in the way that he’s relentless, but he’s not a self-serving clown who asks pointless “gotcha” questions.
He’s a solid and good journalist.
And Peter was up to his usual “journalist tricks” when he cornered Jen with one of his best humdingers yet.
The topic was surrounding the Texas Dems who “fled” the state in order to avoid a vote on a bill that they knew they’d lose, to begin with.
The group grabbed a bunch of beer and hopped on a private jet, and then later, when they landed in DC, they sang “We Shall Overcome” on the steps of the Capitol.
Martyrs for the cause, right?
Give me a break.
But this particular question that Doocy asked Pskai was so loaded, that it caused Jen to fumble more than usual – and in the end, her answer will likely end up haunting Biden for a long time to come.
Here’s what went down: Peter Doocy to Psaki on Texas Dems: “Do you know any examples from his 36 years in the Senate that Joe Biden just hopped on a train and left town to avoid a vote that he knew he was going to lose?”

The fine folks over at Red State explained it best. They said that an interesting thing that happened during that particular exchange – two things that ultimately could come back and haunt Biden his fellow Democrats in the 2022 midterms and beyond. For starters, Democrats have been desperate to paint Texas blue for years, but my gut feeling about Democrats in Texas is that there are enough old-school Democrats there who do not appreciate their state legislators cutting and running even if they agree with them about the election reform bill. Suggesting Biden is on board with what those lawmakers are doing could be one more thing that could backfire on Dem attempts to turn Texas blue on down the line.
Secondly, in effect, Psaki as much as admitted that Biden backs using whatever approach works to stalling legislation you oppose which, again, is the filibuster in a nutshell. Republicans will be able to use this argument against him later as House/Senate Dem attempts to reform/abolish the filibuster are not going away anytime soon, especially after what happened with the H.R. 1/S.1 bills.
I gotta tell you, Peter Doocy is a treasure.
This isn’t the first time that he’s ruffled Jen up and got her to say something really stupid – but this here was a gold medal effort, and we applaud him.
