Joy Behar Takes Swipe at ‘Disingenuous and Ridiculous’ Fox News Reporter Peter Doocy

“The View” co-host Joy Behar took an unprovoked swipe at Peter Doocy during Thursday’s show, describing the Fox News reporter as “disingenuous and ridiculous.”

Behar made the comments while speaking to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Behar started to praise Jean-Pierre’s predecessor Jen Psaki before turning on Peter Doocy.

“I always noticed how Peter Doocy from Fox News gave Jen a hard time,” Behar started with her loaded question.

“You know, he asks questions that are directly given to him from Fox.

“Have you had to swat him down much yet?

“How do you, how are you handling the disingenuous and ridiculous takes when you’re up there trying to do your job and inform the public?”

Jean-Pierre tried to dodge the remarks about Doocy in her response, however.

“So can I say, Joy, and I say this sincerely, the fact that I’m standing here on the White House North Lawn, in the booth, the ABC booth, talking to all of you, is an honor,” she replied.

“It is something that I would have never have thought would have happened if you had asked me when I was 10 years old or 12 years old that this is what, or told me this is what I would be doing in the future.

“And it is a complete privilege, and it is a complete honor to walk through these gates every day, knowing that I am speaking on behalf of this president and that I am speaking on behalf of the American public.

“Look, the give and take that I have with the press, I enjoy it. I appreciate it.

“It is part of the job.

Behar said: “Is that what they call it?”
