“Rare” Guy Fieri Shoutout Happens During White House Press Conference

(RepublicanNews.org) – White House press conferences typically deliver updates about situations of interest to the American people. As with most official briefings, that doesn’t mean the people involved can’t have a little bit of fun in the process. Jenn Psaki’s January 10 appearance likely amused even Guy Fieri himself.

The press conference started like any other. Reporters asked Psaki questions, to which she either responded directly or deftly dodged. When she called on Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, he immediately made a reference to Fieri.

Psaki first welcomed Doocy back after his absence due to a positive COVID-19 test. He admitted to spending a lot of time in front of the TV during his isolation, which the Press Secretary then used as a chance to take a playful jab at the reporter: Did he watch Fox News the entire time?

Doocy quickly fired back, claiming he watched all of Fieri’s content during his week-long isolation — and admittedly, some Fox News, too. Psaki laughed over the exchange as she awkwardly said, “Okay.”

Doocy rapidly returned to his role as the correspondent, presenting Psaki with a number of hard-hitting questions. The two argued over the free tests Biden plans to send out in February and the shortage of COVID-19 testing options, which Doocy noted he experienced firsthand after Biden urged Americans to google “COVID tests near me.” The Fox News correspondent asserted that he found it difficult to find any available testing sites during his search despite already testing positive for the virus.
