Earlier this week, Chief of Staff Ron Klain retweeted a post about how supply chain problems and inflation are “high class problems.”
Democrats set a precedent with Trump that a retweet is the same as making the post yourself.
So, reporters put White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on the spot to explain his stance, and she crashed and burned about as bad as we have seen her.
Spinning Out of Control
Psaki’s briefings are more spin than fact these days, and this one was no different.
Journalists wanted an answer to this tweet from Ron Klain…

Now, this was one of the hottest topics all week, so she should have had an answer loaded and ready to go.
She did not.
Psaki was asked, “Why would Ron Klain tweet that, and would you agree that that’s a little bit tone-deaf?”
She replied, “So I think the point here is, while there are some critics who are saying–what some of these critics are saying is, I don’t–we don’t know if they’re saying that what they thought was great was when the unemployment rate was double what it is today, or when people were locked in their homes and therefore gas prices were lower.
“We’re at this point because the unemployment rate has come down and been cut in half, because people are buying more goods, because people are traveling and because demand is up and because the economy is turning back on.”
Can someone please point out exactly where she answered the question?
Psaki is a disgrace, especially compared to how prepared Kayleigh McEnany was when she stepped on the dais.
When you add her bitterness and sarcasm, Psaki joins the list of many Biden officials who need to go… now.
You can see her full press briefing in the video below…
I think we can all agree, that was yet another epic failure of a briefing from Psaki.
