(TheDailyHorn.com) – Over the last year, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy and White House press secretary Jen Psaki have had a few memorable moments. It seems that other than Doocy, few in the media dare to question Psaki. On Monday, January 11, Doocy stumped Psaki over a simple question about COVID testing.
During the Christmas break, Doocy contracted COVID-19 despite having received two vaccination shots and a booster. The Fox star asked the press secretary how the administration was unprepared for the Omicron surge and testing after the holidays.

Doocy said he followed President Biden’s advice and Googled “COVID test near me.” What he discovered was there were no appointments available as people needing COVID tests had fully booked the calendar.
Psaki didn’t have much of a response other than some bumbling about the massive surge in cases and unprecedented demand for tests. She stated that the federal government opened 20,000 testing sites around the country and only recently did one open in Washington, DC.
Still, Doocy wasn’t finished. The correspondent stated the free tests won’t be available until sometime in the spring. He asked if the administration would admit that the tests won’t be available until after the Omicron surge.
Unsurprisingly, Psaki avoided answering the question.
