Oh, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy keeps coming back for more punishment. We would think that after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took him out behind the woodshed and gave him a serious boxing about the ears he would learn. But apparently, he is a glutton for punishment or unable to realize that he is way out of his depths.
On Monday, Doocy appeared ignorant of how the First Amendment works. If done peacefully, it can be especially helpful to Americans and protected under the Constitution even to the point of being considered patriotic.
He asked Psaki how President Joe Biden felt about the American Olympic track and field athlete Gwen Berry giving her back to the United States flag during the national anthem in protest.
Doocy tried to trap Psaki with this not-so-clever trap:
‘This weekend Gwen Barry, who represents the United States as an Olympian on the hammer-throwing events, won a bronze medal at the trials, and then she turned her back on the flag while the anthem played. ‘Does President Biden think that is appropriate behavior for someone who hopes to represent Team USA?’
Press Secretary Jen Psaki responded with a look on her face not dissimilar from a cat playing with a mouse — before she “kills” it:
‘I haven’t spoken to the President specifically about this. But I know he’s incredibly proud to be an American, and has great respect for the anthem, and all that it represents especially for our men and women serving in uniform all around the world. He would also say of course that part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we are as a country haven’t lived up to our highest ideals, and it means respecting the right of people, granted to them in the constitution to peacefully protest.’
‘Psaki on Biden’s response to an athlete turning her back on the flag: “He’s incredibly proud to be an American … part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we as a country haven’t lived up to our highest ideals.”‘
