On Tuesday, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy had a pointed question for White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre after a POLITICO story indicated that Democrats are in a panic about President Joe Biden’s re-election.

On Tuesday, POLITICO ran an article titled, “Dems in full-blown ‘freakout’ over Biden.” The article was subheaded, “One adviser to major Democratic donors keeps a running list of reasons Biden could lose.”

“Are you guys here at the White House in full-blown freak-out mode?” Doocy asked.

Jean-Pierre, reacting as if she had no knowledge of the POLITICO article, responded, “What are you talking about? What are you talking about?”

“There’s a — there’s a —” Doocy began, before Jean Pierre admonished, “Peter —”

Doocy continued, “— POLITICO story. It sounds like Democrats, outside —” then continued by quoting POLITICO saying Biden’s stubbornly poor polling and the stakes of the election “are creating the freakout,” according to a Democratic operative.

Jean-Pierre evaded the question, saying, “So again, I’m really mindful — I’m not going to comment on 2024 election,” then veered into speaking of Biden’s supposed compassion for the American people, saying, “I will say this — uh — the President has never forgotten where he comes — where he came from, who he is. He understands what the American people are going through as they’re sitting around the kitchen table.”


The POLITICO article started, “A pervasive sense of fear has settled in at the highest levels of the Democratic Party over President Joe Biden’s reelection prospects, even among officeholders and strategists who had previously expressed confidence about the coming battle with Donald Trump. … nearly five months from the election, anxiety has morphed into palpable trepidation, according to more than a dozen party leaders and operatives. And the gap between what Democrats will say on TV or in print, and what they’ll text their friends, has only grown as worries have surged about Biden’s prospects.”


The article noted that former President Trump, “despite everything,” “is running ahead of Biden in most battleground states. He raised far more money in April, and the landscape may only become worse for Democrats, with Trump’s hush-money trial concluding and another — this one involving the president’s son — set to begin in Delaware.”

“One adviser to major Democratic Party donors provided a running list that has been shared with funders of nearly two dozen reasons why Biden could lose,” the article noted.

The adviser stated, “The list of why we ‘could’ win is so small I don’t even need to keep the list on my phone.”

Veteran Democratic strategist Pete Giangreco told POLITICO, “If the frame of this race is, ‘What was better, the 3.5 years under Biden or four years under Trump,’ we lose that every day of the week and twice on Sunday.”
