Who is Peter Doocy? Joe Biden roasts Fox News reporter who asked 'what did you talk to Vladimir Putin about?'
Towards the end of a press conference on January 26, President Joe Biden opted to take one last question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. However, the exchange did not turn out as expected since Biden roasted Doocy with a smile before leaving the room. Doocy asked Biden, "Mr President, what did you talk to Vladimir Putin about?" and the US President jokingly responded, “You. He sends his best.” The hilarious reply left the room full of journalists in splits and later went viral on the internet as the video clip surfaced.

Who is Peter Doocy?
33-year-old Peter Doocy is a reporter working with Fox News since 2009. He has recently been named as the White House Correspondent for the media house to cover the Biden administration.
Born on July 21, 1987, in Washington D.C., Peter Doocy is the son of famous Fox News anchor and political commentator Steve Doocy.
He pursued a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Villanova University, where he graduated in 2009. He has always had a knack for journalistic pursuits since he worked as a Palestra reporter for Fox News during his college years.
In 2009, after graduation, Doocy joined Fox News as a general assignment reporter. His skills and acumen helped him rise through the ranks and soon he was delegated to cover a wide variety of important stories.
Doocy’s notable reportage includes the Midwest floods of 2011, the 2012 coverage of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant surgery, ground reporting of Hurricane Sandy in 2012 as well as the infamous Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting the same year. He also covered both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections.
In 2014, Doocy’s popularity skyrocketed after he secured an exclusive interview with former Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill - who killed notorious terrorist Osama Bin Laden at a covert operation. The interview earned the highest-ever rating for any special in the history of Fox News.
Before being appointed as the White House correspondent, Doocy covered the 2020 presidential campaign of Joe Biden.
Biden’s reply to Doocy make way for hilarious reactions
Yesterday when the White House tried to end the press meet, Biden pointed at Peter Doocy to take one last question from him. “He always asks the tough questions. I know he has an edge to him,” the President reportedly said. It was after this that Doocy dropped the Putin question that unleashed the President’s humorous side.
Twitterati had a field day after the video went viral. "My favorite thing about the Biden presidency is and always will be the constant live, on-air trolling of Peter Doocy," wrote one user.

Some users pointed out Doocy's exchange with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki - "Oh Peter Doocy... You're trying so hard to be the next Jim Acosta. A for effort Face with tears of joy. Love Jen Psaki's response though. It's almost as if... *now stick with me on this* ...Biden knows that the Executive Branch of government is separate from the Legislative Branch of government." "Is there a reverse angle camera of #FoxNews Peter Doocy’s reaction after being burnt C-Span?" asked another user.
