Have you ever told a joke to a packed room and had nothing but confused eyes staring back at you?
Imagine that feeling as the White House Press Secretary when you think you are cute, but it comes off as entirely out-of-touch and snarky.
That is what just happened to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
Crash and Burn
While I have never done stand-up, I have done my fair share of public presentations to know that you need to know your room.
You also need to know the appropriate time and place for certain comments.
When Americans are dealing with massive supply chain issues that are only going to get worse, it is not the time for a snarky remark by an administration official.
That, however, is exactly what Jen Psaki did when asked an honest question by a reporter regarding the supply chain.
Then, after her snide remark crashed and burned, she goes on to tell the reporter how wrong he is about everything he said, because, well, she said so…
Let me take you back to comments made by both Biden’s Chief of Staff Ron Klain and Joe Biden during Trump’s time in office and the campaign.
Ron Klain recently retweeted a comment that inflation is a high-class problem, yet he stated this would hit the middle-class the most when Trump was in office.
When the pandemic first started and the globe shut down, Joe Biden said product shortages were a leadership problem.
Well, Joe, shelves are empty, so now your administration is spinning this in every possible way, actually portraying it as a good thing.
If Joe ever decides to take questions again (he does have a town hall this week with Anderson Cooper on CNN but expect nothing but softballs to be lobbed his way), he should be asked directly about that quote.
I will get comfy and wait for it to happen.
