White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre lost her cool with Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy.
Doocy asked about Joe Biden’s hypocrisy as he flip-flopped on building Donald Trump’s border wall.
Doocy said, “As a candidate, President Biden didn’t say ‘There will not be another foot of wall constructed, except for what was appropriated in 2019.’ He said, ‘There will not be another foot of wall constructed in my administration.’” (Poll: Was Trump better than Biden? VOTE)

“So, something changed. What?” Doocy asked.
“You want us to break the law,” Jean-Pierre said. “Is that what you want? You want us to not comply with the law.”
“I’m not — I’m asking about, he was —” Doocy began.
“But you want us not to comply with the law,” the press secretary said. “You want us not be an administrations [sic] that follows the rule of law.”
“You guys do this all the time. The student loans, the student loan forgiveness program. You went to court to fight for that,” Doocy responded.

"If you have to build a border wall, but you don’t think that it’s gonna work then once it’s done, are you just going to tear it down?"

“If this is such a problem, building 20 miles of wall, why not just go to court?” Doocy asked.
The DHS waived a number of federal laws, including the Clean Air Act, Safe Drinking Water Act and Endangered Species Act, in order to use money from appropriated congressional funds earmarked since 2019 for border wall construction.
