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.”

Driver free on bond after he admittedly killed teenager for Conservative views

41-year-old Shannon Brandt is out on bond even though he was the one who admitted to killing a teenager because of the youngster’s political affiliation. Brandt chased 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson and ran him down with his car claiming he was part of a “Republican extremist group.” Police say Brandt was drunk when he hit and killed Ellingson with his SUV.

Brandt was charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident. Later in the week, he was let out on $50,000 bond stating he is not a flight risk. “I have a job, a life and a house and things I don’t want to see go by the wayside — family that are very important to me,” Brandt told the judge.

Since his release, Brandt started removing certain content from his social media, the Post Millenial observed. “Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up. By the time she could get there, her son was dead” reports National Review.

“He was the one who called 911 to report the crash,” said North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind.

Court papers show Brandt called 911 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and told the 911 dispatcher that he just hit Ellingson, claiming the teen was part of a Republican extremist group and was calling people to come get Brandt after a political argument.
