Democratic President Joe Biden expertly clapped back at Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy at the end of an event on Wednesday that left the internet cheering.

Doocy–the son of Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy and appointed by the conservative news channel to cover the incoming Biden administration in 2021–is notorious for leading questions and clashing with the Biden Administration.

His tense exchanges with former White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, have become viral memes–many of which glorify Psaki schooling Doocy after failed attempts at getting desired sound bites for the network that is unremittingly critical of Biden.

At the end of Wedesday's press event, Doocy tried to make Biden choose a single "top issue."

"Top domestic issue: inflation or abortion?"

Biden responded:

“They’re all important—unlike you, there’s no one thing. It's across the board."

The President said there were multiple issues–domestic and foreign–that were all critical at the moment.

Biden said as he rose from the desk and buttoned his jacket:

"They're all important."

Biden added:

“And we oughta be able to walk and chew gum at the same time.”

You can see the moment here:

The internet was here for it.





Twitter users also shared their observations about the mentioned issues.

After answering the same question about inflation back in January, Doocy was called "a stupid son of a b*tch" by Biden–a remark caught on a hot mic as the President shook his head and slightly turned away, according to ABC News.

WARNING: NSFW language.

The President later called Doocy to "clear the air" and allegedly told the Fox News personality:

“It’s nothing personal, pal.”
