Fox News Presenter Has Hilarious Reaction To President Biden's Vaccination Joke
Twitter users can't get over the reaction of Fox News presenter Peter Doocy after US president Joe Biden made a joke about vaccinations during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
He kicked things off by saying he was excited to be at the Correspondents' Dinner 'with the only group of Americans with a lower approval rating' than his own, while he also took aim at the Fox News hosts in attendance, including Doocy.
A perfectly timed cut to the presenter caught his reaction to the president's comments about being vaccinated – check it out below:
A number of Fox News hosts have voiced scepticism about coronavirus vaccines, with Doocy previously butting heads with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki over cases of coronavirus in those who have received their vaccinations.
Joking about the controversial opinions shared by some on Fox News, Biden said: "I know there are a lot of questions about whether we should gather here tonight because of COVID. Well, we're here to show the country that we're getting through this pandemic.
"Plus, everyone has to prove they are fully vaccinated and boosted. Just contact your favourite Fox News reporter. They're all here. Vaccinated and boosted. All of them."
The comment prompted a laugh from a lot of the crowd, but Doocy kept a straight face and shot a side-eye glance at the camera following the indirect dig.
His reaction might have been fast, but it didn't go unnoticed by viewers who quickly took to social media to mock his look. One person described the response as 'outstanding', while another noted he 'did not look pleased'.
Biden took further shots at Fox while referencing his presidential election win over Trump, and talk show host Sean Hannity's texting relationship with former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, joking: "Fox News, I’m really sorry your preferred candidate lost the last election. To make it up to you, I’m happy to give my chief of staff to you all so he can tell Sean Hannity what to say every day."
Biden also used his speech to describe Trump's time in office as a 'horrible plague', as well as taking on a more serious tone as he thanked journalists covering news about Ukraine amid the country's ongoing war with Russia.
