James Doocy blasted the Biden Administration, according to The Western Journal.
“Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d),” the White House tweeted, noting in a graphic all the pennies Americans might save.
“Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish.”

“The official White House account tweeted yesterday: ‘The cost of a Fourth of July cookout is down 16 cents from last year.'”
DOOCY: "Does the White House think 16 cents off a bbq has more of an impact on people's lives than gas being a dollar more?@PressSec: "I would say if you don't like hot dogs, you might not care about the reduction of cost." pic.twitter.com/WYmxekL5FS

“There has been a reduction in some of the costs of key components of the Fourth of July — a Fourth of July barbecue.”
“That was what the tweet was noting.”
“So does the White House think that 16 cents off a barbecue has more of an impact on people’s lives than gas being a dollar more this time — this Fourth of July versus last year?”
“I would say: If you don’t like hot dogs, you may not care of the reduction of costs.”
“You don’t have to like hot dogs.”
“You can’t buy a hot dog for 16 cents. That’s like a bite of a hot dog,” Doocy said.
“I will say that what we are most focused on is the fact that we’ve created now more than 3 million jobs since the president took office.”
“That’s what we’re focused on, and continuing to implement additional components of his economic Build Back Better agenda.”
From The Western Journal:
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy savaged White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday when she defended a tone-deaf tweet from the official White House Twitter account that bragged that the cost of a Fourth of July cookout is down 16 cents this year.
If you saw the post and wondered how saving a dime, a nickel and a penny on hot dogs will help Americans paying for overpriced gasoline, you weren’t alone.
Doocy was also curious.
