Jen Psaki Goes to Extremes to Avoid Questions from Fox News
Joe Biden has been targeting Republicans in terrible ways.
And he wants to avoid any accountability.
Jen Psaki went completely off the rails to avoid a question from Fox News.
In his inaugural address President Joe Biden stated, “We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal.”
Since then Biden has made it clear that he’ll use every ugly tactic to attack Republicans.
Biden compared Republicans that oppose his effort to federalize American elections and allow for the Justice Department to challenge state election laws as discriminatory to segregationists.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on why the president is vilifying the other party.
“But as you talked about a year ago, and working with Republicans, now he is talking about Republicans that don’t agree with voting rights—he’s describing them as George Wallace, Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis,” Doocy said. “What happened to the guy who, when he was elected, said ‘to make progress we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy?’”
“I think everybody listening to that speech, who’s speaking ‘on the level’ as my mother would say, would note that he was not comparing them as humans, he was comparing the choice to those figures in history and where they’re going to position themselves as they determine whether they’re going to support the fundamental right to vote or not,” Psaki responded.
The fact that Biden is dehumanizing Republicans doesn’t make his remarks better but they’re on defense for what Biden said which is why Psaki changed the subject abruptly.
“One last thing, the Bengals are playing tomorrow, I’m just giving it a shoutout so that my husband will be excited at home. They haven’t won a playoff game in 31 years,” she concluded.
The American people don’t need the White House press secretary to give a shoutout to her favorite sports team. What she needs to do is answer questions.
Doocy was referring to remarks that Biden delivered last week during a speech in Atlanta.
“I will defend the right to vote, our democracy against all enemies — foreign and, yes, domestic. … At consequential moments in history, they present a choice: Do you want to be the on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide to defend our elections, to defend our democracy.”
Biden is the very opposite of unifying and even Democrats know it. That’s why Jen Psaki rushed to talk about sports.
