Jen Psaki Admits She’ll Miss Peter Doocy: ‘We Have a Very Good, Professional Relationship’

Outgoing White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has come clean about Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, saying she will miss him and their “healthy debates and discussions” when she leaves.

Psaki will hold her last press briefing for President Joe Biden’s administration on Friday.

“I will,” Psaki said when asked if she would miss Doocy during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

“I will tell you, and people know this who are in the White House every day, I think we have a very good, professional relationship.

“I understand that he’s coming there to ask questions every day that are important to report at the outlet he works for,” she continued.

“And I respect that and we have healthy debates and discussions.

“Doesn’t mean I agree with his line of questioning on most days.

“But I think that’s, I’ve called on him every day he’s been there or a Fox person, Jacqui Heinrich, who’s been there a lot as well.

“And I think sending the message to the country that we’re not — we’re not focused here on a fight with Fox.

“We’re focused here on the work of the American people.”

The two also had this recent exchange when Psaki announced she was leaving:

Fox News’ Peter Doocy: “Thank you, Jen. Sorry to see you go.”

Psaki: “Are you?”

Doocy: “Yes, and you’ve always been a good sport. So, on behalf of everybody, thank you for everything.”

Psaki: “Thank you. As have you,”

Psaki will be replaced by her principal deputy, Karine Jean-Pierre, who is poised to become the first black person and openly gay person to serve as White House press secretary.

She has not said what she will do next but it’s been reported she will sign a contract to host a show on MSNBC.
