White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been losing it on the weekly. After she silently courted a job at MSNBC, Psaki has gone on a slate of podcasts to advertise the goals of the current administration. And the results of these interviews have been brutal for the federal employee, who often acts like anything but that.
Psaki has defended the indefensible in her short time as Press Secretary. As we shall see, she has only doubled down on many of her worst takes in the interview we are covering today. It is hard to see her coming back from many of these blunders.
Luckily for her, it is looking more likely that her time at the job will soon be over. Indeed, we are the luckier ones, for the possibility of hope may return with her departure.
Psaki did, after all, say that Peter Doocy, perhaps the best reporter in the White House Press pool, sounded like a “son of a b****”. That’s not a nice thing to say. If Kayleigh McEnany still occupied the office, she would have been slammed to no end. But alas, Jen Psaki has remained unscathed.
But perhaps this will change things. Psaki went on the ‘News Not Noise’ podcast and she said something that will surely baffle even the most Leftist of audiences:
“The political gains and harsh attempts at laws, as we see in Florida … That is not a reflection of the country moving to oppose LGBTQ+ communities … This is a political wedge issue and an attempt to win a culture war. And they’re doing that in a way that is harsh and cruel to a community of kids, especially.
I’m going to get emotional about this issue because it’s horrible. But it’s like kids who are bullied, and all these leaders are taking steps to hurt them and hurt their lives and hurt their families. And you look at some of these laws in these states, and it is going after parents who are in loving relationships, who have kids.
It’s completely outrageous. Sorry, this is an issue that makes me completely crazy”
She did go crazy on this issue, as you can see from the video. We need more professionalism from our leaders, especially when she is misrepresenting what the bill actually says. It is not an anti-gay bill. It is an anti-grooming bill. There is a difference, and it is time Jen Psaki learned it.
Here is the video:
