Over the last nine months, one of the only journalists in the White House press pool who has asked Jen Psaki any tough questions is Peter Doocy of FOX News.
This week, Doocy asked Psaki if Biden has visited the southern border. Ever.
And she didn’t know! She seemed genuinely taken back by the question.
From the Daily Caller:
‘We Can’t Find Any Record’: Peter Doocy Confronts Jen Psaki, Asks If Biden Has ‘Ever’ Visited The Border
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy confronted press secretary Jen Psaki during Wednesday’s briefing, asking whether President Joe Biden had ever visited the U.S.-Mexico border.
Following a testy exchange over how the Biden administration was handling the massive influx of Haitian immigrants — many of whom have gathered under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas — Doocy pivoted to ask simply whether or not Biden had visited the border.
“Has President Biden ever been to the southern border?” Doocy asked.
“In his life?” Psaki appeared to be momentarily taken aback by the question. “I will have to look back in my history books and check the times he’s been to the southern border.”
“We have looked all morning and we can’t find any record of him as president, vice president, senator, or even as a concerned citizen,” Doocy pressed. “Why would that be?”

Doocy followed up with an expanded report later:

It’s pretty obvious why Biden hasn’t visited the border.
He doesn’t care.
