Peter Doocy Trolls Jean-Pierre With Late-Night Nuclear Threat Question Do You Call Jill Biden
KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Peter Doocy is a White House correspondent for Fox News
  • He questioned Karine Jean-Pierre if the Pentagon contacts Jill Biden if a nuclear threat occurs after 8 PM
  • "Biden is sharpest before 8:00 PM," he said

Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy questioned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the Pentagon's protocol if a nuclear threat arises after 8 PM. This interaction occurred during Tuesday's White House press briefing, amid ongoing questions about President Biden’s cognitive abilities following his lackluster performance at the CNN Presidential debate against Donald Trump last month. Several lawmakers, including some Democrats, have urged Biden to reconsider his 2024 presidential bid.
Earlier this month, President Biden informed Democratic governors during a White House meeting that part of his plan going forward is to avoid scheduling events after 8 PM to ensure he gets more sleep. This information was reported by CNN, citing three sources briefed on his comments.
In this regard, Doocy asked, "Does President Biden commit to serving a full second term if reelected?"
"Yes," Jean-Pierre replied.
"We know the president says that his health is fine, but it’s just his brain and that he’s sharpest before 8 p.m...?" Doocy pressed.
Jean-Pierre interrupted, explaining that Biden's comment was meant as a joke. "He was joking. I just wanna make sure that that’s out there. People– he was making a light-hearted joke as he was speaking off-the-cuff. You know the president. He likes to joke a lot. He’s the same guy who says, ‘I know I look 40,’ right? So, he likes to make jokes. It is a joke. I think people laugh when he says it."
Doocy persisted, "Well, he also said he’s sharpest before 8 p.m. So, say that the Pentagon at some point picks up an incoming nuke. It’s 11 p.m. Who do you call – the first lady?"
Jean-Pierre responded, "He has a team that lets him know of any news that is pertinent and important to the American people. He has someone, or that is decided obviously in this national security council who gets to tell him that news."
