( – On Thursday, Fox News’s Peter Doocy caused the White House briefing room to crack up after he accidentally referred to President Biden as former President Barack Obama.

During a question to John Kirby, the spokesperson of the National Security Council, Doocy asked about the alleged rift between Vice President Kamala Harris and Biden when it comes to how the U.S. will respond to the Israel-Gaza war. During that question, Doocy accidentally started to refer to President Biden as “Obama” but stopped himself midway. This led to him saying “President O-Biden,” which resulted in many in the group erupting into laughter.

While Doocy managed to recover, and argue that the story revolving around Kamala Harris was important for Fox News, Kirby was quick to fight back arguing that this was not a big story for any other news media apart from Fox News. This appeared to be a dig against the media bias exhibited by Fox News.

Over the years the President and the news reporter have had a tense relationship, with President Biden having previously called Doocy out twice over what he believed to be poor and leading questions. In the past, he has also referred to Doocy as a “stupid son of a b*tch.”

Early on Thursday, Politico was the first to report the story on Harris and alleged that the Vice President has been pushing for President Biden to show more public concern for Palestinians in the way he is handling the Israel-Hamas war.

The White House has claimed that the story was untrue and that the two did not have differing opinions on the handling of the conflict.
