The obstinate Fox News White House Reporter Peter Doocy apparently makes it his mission to show up at every press briefing in order to antagonize Jen Psaki. But Saturday night, he was a main course at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, served oh so cold.
The Daily Beast Senior Writer and Podcast Host of Last Laugh, Matt Wilstein tweeted about the jabs people handed Fox News and its reporters at the dinner. It featured Trevor Noah on a roll calling the network “like Waffle House:”
‘Fox News is like Waffle House: “It’s relatively normal in the afternoon, but as soon as the sun goes down there is a drunk lady named Jeanine threatening to fight every Mexican who comes in.’
Then, Noah glimpsed Angie Ingraham in the crowd:
‘Spotting Fox News’ @IngrahamAngle in the crowd, Trevor Noah said, “Wow, what can you say about her that hasn’t already been said by the Anti-Defamation League?”’
After that Trevor Noah had one for Fox and Friends about POTUS’ surviving son Hunter Biden. Clearly, Doocy has kept Hunter in America’s eye, but let us just forget that the Trump kids killed it when they were working in the West Wing:
‘And then Fox News asked about Hunter Biden. And I’ll be honest though, I think that’s a good thing. I really do. I think people need to be held accountable if they are using their dad’s names to get ahead. And I can’t think of anyone better to ask about that than Peter Doocy.
‘Yeah. Wherever he is. Chris Wallace laughed at that.’
Then Wilstein pointed at the moment Donald Trump decided to run for president during another Correspondent’s Dinner in 2011. It was right after President Barack Obama sent some real zingers at the legendarily thin-skinned Trump. Then Wilstein tweeted it:
After that Noah went to Doocy:
‘That cut to Peter Doocy…
‘”Everyone had to prove they were fully vaccinated and boosted. So if you are at home watching this and you wonder how to do that, just contact your favorite Fox News reporter. They’re all here, vaccinated and boosted, all of them.'”

Even President Biden got into the Fox News act, CNN reported and Matt Wilstein tweeted that Doocy “was fully vaccinated and boosted:”
‘I know there are — I know there are questions about whether we should gather here tonight because of Covid. Well, we’re here to show the country that we’re getting through this pandemic. Plus, everyone had to prove they were fully vaccinated and boosted.’
Then, Wilstein tweeted the president’s words, grinding Fox’s people into the mud for its “favorite candidate losing:
‘And, look, Fox — Fox News, I’m — I’m really sorry your preferred candidate lost the last election. To make it up to you, I’m happy to give my chief of staff to you all so he can tell Sean Hannity what to say every day.’
Thank you, Mr. President.
