Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy was not pleased that President Joe Biden did not call on him at his first press conference since being inaugurated.

Following the Thursday afternoon conference, Doocy told a Fox News panel about the snub and showed a binder of questions he had planned to ask the president.

Mentioning how people thought he was kidding when he had said the night before that he had a binder, he then whipped out a black binder.

“I was not kidding,” the reporter said as he flipped through the pages while standing in front of the White House.

Saying “we had a lot” of questions, Doocy mentioned that many of them were never brought up at the conference. Some of these included pressing Biden on topics ranging from green jobs to the origins of the coronavirus.

Occasionally, Doocy has shouted questions at Biden at the end of other public events, with Biden sometimes giving a response—albeit typically short and snappy ones.

Eventually, Doocy talked to the Fox panel about the list Biden had of reporters to take questions from and in what chronological order.

“In the room there were some aides—including Kate Bedingfield, the communications director, and Jen Psaki, the press secretary—they were monitoring what he was saying,” Doocy said. “It looked like they were checking their phones to get the instant reaction. But, while he was up there, he was pretty much on his own.”

“Usually—at the last few of these,” he continued, adding that the last one he could recall resembling this was in Wilmington, Delaware, “they had an aide off to the side, with the list of reporters to call on.”

“Today it was Biden with the list, and once they got through about an hour and 20 minutes, he was done,” Doocy said.

“I’m not sure that was the end of the list,” he concluded. “If we were on it, he did not make it down that far.”

Alec Baldwin Lowest of the Low; Blames Victim For Shooting ‘Everything is at her Direction’

Published

Alec Baldwin

“Just when you think Alec Baldwin can’t go any lower, he blames Halyna Hutchins, the woman he shot to death, for getting shot to death” writes the New York Post. Naturally, Baldwin gifted his first interview since the tragic death of Hutchins to his Hampton’s buddy and leftwing media host George Stephanopoulos.

“Everything is at her direction,” Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos during the hourlong interview that aired Thursday night on ABC. Ultimately the entire one hour can be summed up by Baldwin’s twelve words: “Someone is responsible for what happened, and I know it’s not me.”

For any viewers looking for anything particularly meaningful from Baldwin or for him to answer tough questions, a sit-down with his liberal elite buddy was not the place to get it. “I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it,” Baldwin said, “which ended up right below her armpit. Which is what I was told — I don’t know.”

He carried on, “I would never point a gun at anyone, and pull the trigger at them. Never.” Oddly he had just finished describing how he was pointing the gun at Hutchins.
Agent Bobby Chacon, a retired FBI agent who works as a writer and on-set consultant for Hollywood stated “The bullet striking and killing that woman came out of the barrel of the gun pointed directly at her…Bullets don’t curve. He isn’t in ‘The Matrix.’ The trigger would still have to be pulled.”

The New York Post reports:

“I’m not aware of any gun firing itself,” says Steve Wolf, a Hollywood firearms and special-effects expert since 1994. “I’ve never seen a gun self-discharge. A single-action revolver like this” — the Colt that Baldwin fired — “can be discharged very easily, with minimal input required … The trigger still must have been pressed.”
Wolf is also outraged by a larger concern. “It’s really important to discredit anyone who claims that guns fire themselves,” he says. “If this becomes an acceptable defense, there goes any accountability when it comes to shooting people. We can’t have this kind of ‘guns shoot themselves’ thing. They don’t.”
