Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy is upset that President Joe Biden made a “political” speech Thursday in Philadelphia after promising not to get into political matters.

Before the speech, Doocy noted that the White House had insisted the president would refrain from politics and focus in the need to protect American democracy.

And Biden did indeed appeal to voters to exercise their right to the ballot:

“We can’t afford to leave anyone on the sidelines. We need everyone to do their part, so speak up, speak out, get engaged. Vote, vote, vote.

“And if we do our duty in 2022 and beyond, then ages still to come will say … we kept the faith, we preserved democracy, we heeded not our worst instincts but our better angels.”


But, just because the president urged people to vote, Doocy slammed him:

“We were told, in no uncertain terms, this was not going to be a political speech, but we did hear the president twice talk about voting. Once to get the crowd going saying, ‘Vote, vote, vote,’ and then another time to say that people need to do their duty in 2022, which is a direct political statement made by the president here before he left town.”

So now it’s political to encourage voting? If that’s the case, then every politician in the country is engaged in politics, which is supposed to be exactly what they do, isn’t it?

Doocy was thoroughly mocked on Twitter:
