Peter Doocy Asks White House Press Secretary Why Our 80 Year Old President is 'Treated Like a Baby' (VIDEO)

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy made waves by asking White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why the president is “treated like a baby.”

The unexpected question came during Tuesday’s press briefing.

President Joe Biden will be 81 in November.

“President Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history. Why does White House staff treat him like a baby?” Doocy asked.

“No one treats the President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief, like a baby,” Jean-Pierre fired back.

“So, there’s this book that says—” Doocy began.

Jean-Pierre cut him off, saying, “That’s ridiculous, it’s a ridiculous claim.”

Doocy was referencing The Last Politician by Atlantic writer Franklin Foe, which states, “rather than owning his [Biden’s] failure, he fumed to friends how he was treated like a toddler. Was [former President] John Kennedy ever babied like that?”

“I’ll say this, there is always going to be a range of books that are about every administration, as you know, that’s going to have a variety of claims. That is not unusual, that happens all the time and we’re not going to litigate here. That’s not something that we are going to speak to,” Jean-Pierre said.

Doocy went on to question the press secretary about a Wall Street Journal poll that found two-thirds of Democrats believe the president is “too old” for a second term.

The press secretary claimed that Biden has “wisdom,” “experience,” and has taken “historic action” on infrastructure legislation.
