Late night television host Stephen Colbert suggested that a Fox News reporter should be slapped over his questions to President Joe Biden during his latest media briefing.
Colbert made the comments during the opening monologue on this show Tuesday.
“Yesterday, President Biden held a press conference, and he was asked a ridiculous question by a ridiculous man, Fox News reporter and that one kid in high school who wears a suit to gym class, Peter Doocy,” said Colbert before running video of the exchange between Doocy and Biden.
“You said a chemical weapon used by Russia would trigger a response in kind,” said Doocy in the clip.
“It will trigger a significant response,” Biden replied.
“What does that mean?” asked Doocy.
“I’m not gonna tell you. Why would I tell you? You gotta be silly!” Biden responded.
“Remember how on last night’s who I said that slapping is never ever the answer?” Colbert continued. “I’d like to file a one time exemption on behalf of the president of the United States.”
Colbert’s audience applauded the notion that Doocy deserved to be slapped. He went on to joke that Doocy might ask Biden what the nuclear launch codes were, and he received tepid laughter from the audience.
