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.”

Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar was voted off the House Foreign Affairs Committee Thursday. The action was expected, as Republican members of Congress had criticized Omar’s antisemetic and anti-American rhetoric.

After intense debating on the House floor, the resolution passed with a 218-211 vote. Democrats attempted to pull the race card, accusing Republican House members of racism for removing Omar from the committee.

Omar also accused House Republicans of racism, saying, “I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa…Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”

“There is this idea that you are a suspect if you are an immigrant or if you are from certain parts of the world or certain skin tone or a muslim.” Omar said during the heated debate. A fiery Alexandria Ocasia Cortez also chimed in shouting, “This is an attack on women of color!”

Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, from New York, said she had personally witnessed Omar spew anti-American rhetoric. Malliotakis said, “I have been in that committee room where, the representative, equates Israel and the United States to Hamas and the Taliban. Absolutely unacceptable for a member of that committee.”

A four-page resolution was written for the justification of removing Omar from the house Foreign Affairs Committee. The resolution states that in 2019, Omar suggested that Jewish people were buying U.S. political support when she posted on Twitter, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”

Omar also commented on the September 11th attacks saying, “some people did something.” This type of comment is unacceptable for any representative who is sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lawmakers said.

In the resolution it states that members of this committee should all be held to an “equal standard of conduct due to the international sensitivities and national security concerns under the jurisdiction of this committee.”
