Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki why a scheduled event to celebrate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation shouldn’t be considered a “super-spreader event.”

During Thursday’s White House press briefing, Doocy noted the fact that a similar event held to celebrate Justice Amy Coney Barrett — after which a number of attendees tested positive for COVID-19 — had been called a super-spreader event by media outlets and Democrats alike. Considering the number of prominent Democrats and members of President Joe Biden’s administration who had tested positive for the virus in recent days, Doocy suggested that the situation was comparable.

“When the last president wanted to host a big event for a Supreme Court nominee here at the White House, some folks got COVID and then-former Vice President Biden called it a ‘super-spreader event,’” Doocy said, asking, “So, is there any risk that this event tomorrow for a Biden Supreme Court — now, Justice, is gonna be a super-spreader event?”
