WATCH: Fox News’ Doocy Forces White House Spox Karine Jean-Pierre Into Stuttering Reponses

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy developed a reputation for stumping former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, but he’s really taking a toll on her replacement.

Doocy’s hard questions on Wednesday led current White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre into stuttering responses as he pressed her on everything from skyrocketing inflation under President Joe Biden to blaming Russian President Vladimir Putin for U.S. economic issues.

“In some places in this country now, a gallon of gas costs more than the people on the federal minimum wage are making in an hour. What does the White House want these people to do? Just stop driving to work?” Doocy began.

Jean-Pierre responded by claiming Biden understood what the American people were feeling, saying, “He understands what it means for people who are sitting at their kitchen table and see gas prices go up.”

She then blamed Putin for rising gas prices, which has become a key talking point for Democrats.

Doocy doubled down and asked again if the president believes his policies are impacting inflation.

“You just mentioned Putin a few times as a reason for recent inflation. Do you guys think that any part of inflation this year is because of President Biden’s spending plans? Or is it all Putin’s fault?” Doocy asked.

After the spokeswoman appeared to dodge the question again, Doocy tried once again: “So I guess the next question would be, does President Biden take any responsibility for his policies potentially contributing to inflation?”

“His policies has [sic] helped the economy gets back on its feet. That’s what his policies has [sic] — his policies has [sic] done,” Jean-Pierre insisted. “This — when we talk about the gas prices right now, this is indeed Putin’s gas hike. This is what we have seen in the most recent months of what we’re seeing at the gas pump. And so that is a fact, we have seen about 60% increase in the past several months.”


Gas prices took another big step in the wrong direction this week as the national average for regular gasoline climbed by five cents on Wednesday to a fresh record of $4.67 a gallon.

“That leaves gas prices up by 48 cents in the past month alone,” CNN reported.
