Much as I don’t like to show sympathy for crazy leftists, it sure must be hard to be Jen Psaki. I mean, just think about everything she has to deal with.
On one hand, there’s Brandon himself. That guy can barely read off a teleprompter and is liable to say or do any weird, obviously senile thing at more or less any moment. Whatever he might say or do when “Dr.” Jill lets him leave the basement, Psaki has to be ready to play it off as a sign of his playing 4D chess thanks to his many, many functioning brain cells. Cheers to her for managing that. Or, as Brandon might say, “let’s go Brandon, I agree!”
Then, on the other hand, there are all the policies pushed by the Brandon barnacles. The people that latched onto the White House so that they could push for jab mandates, transgender surgeries for the troops, packing the Supreme Court, or whatever other lunatic idea is pushed by the Brandon White House each week. We all know Brandon, who has zero idea what’s going on, is really responsible for those ideas, but Psaki has to defend them nonetheless.
And, as a result, she has to try to stand up for Brandon’s White House. Or, at least, listen to reporters list off its many, many failures, as happened during a recent press conference. If you can handle the massive cringe factor, watch that here:

While Jen probably would have liked to “circle back” to the laundry list of Brandon’s failures, she wasn’t able to. She had to stand there and take it as the reporter went on for nearly a full minute, listing off thing after thing at which Team Brandon has failed. It’s pretty funny, if disappointing that the reporter wasn’t able to get to anything.
Still, he got to quite a few. As you can hear in the video, he says:
Thank you. I have a couple specific ones, but I wanted to kind of follow on that. As you’re determining next steps — I mean, frankly, things just seem like they’re going pretty poorly right now for the White House. You know, Build Back Better is being blocked. Voting rights is being blocked. Diplomatic talks with Russia doesn’t seem to have brought us back from the brink of war. Inflation is at a 40-year high. The virus is setting records for infection.
So, as we kind of hit this one-year period, and a period where everything seems like it’s in pretty rough shape, or nearly everything — which is not an invitation, I guess, to list off some other things — I’m wondering, at what point do you take stock and say that things need to change internally, whether it’s your outreach with the Hill, whether it’s the leadership within the White House. You seem to be stymied on an incredible number of fronts right now.
Psaki, responding, just cites empty statistics and the other drivel expected of regime figures like her, saying:
Well, let me give you a little bit of a different take on this. More than 200 million people are vaccinated. We’ve had record job growth, record low unemployment rates — historically, in this country, over the last year. We’ve rebuilt our alliances and our relationships around the world. And right now, as it relates to Russia, as you heard our National Security Advisor convey, we’re working with partners around the world to convey very clearly: It’s up to them to make a choice about what’s next. We’re not going to make that on their behalf. It’s up to them to determine if there are going to be crippling economic sanctions or not, or — if they decide to move forward.
But we also recognize when you have a small margin and threshold in the Senate, it’s very difficult to get things done and to get legislation passed. And the fact that the President, under his leadership, got the American Rescue Plan passed, a Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill with 19 [Republican] votes in the Senate, about 6 [Republican] votes in the House. The fact that we are still continuing to work with members to determine the path forward on Build Back Better; that we have the vast majority of Democrats in the Senate supporting voting rights. That’s a path forward for us.
And our effort is to do hard things, try hard things, and keep at it. So, we just don’t see it through the same prism.
The reporter, not letting her off the hook so easily, says “So, the sense is things are going well; there’s no need for change right now?”
Psaki, again trying, and failing to respond with spin, says:
I think that having worked in a White House before, you do hard things in White Houses. You have every challenge at your feet — laid at your feet, whether it’s global or domestically.
And we could certainly propose legislation to see if people support bunny rabbits and ice cream, but that wouldn’t be very rewarding to the American people.
So, the President’s view is we’re going to keep pushing for hard things, and we’re going to keep pushing the boulders up the hill to get it done.
Yikes. That didn’t go well for her. Hopefully she can “circle back” to a different career after Biden wanders away from the White House after hearing an ice cream truck.
