White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has her work cut out for her in general, particularly given Biden’s rather spectacular array of gaffes.
After all, Biden’s rather remarkable Veterans Day speech, in which he dropped some of the biggest gaffes of all, is more than enough to send a press secretary into unprecedented levels of overtime and damage control.
Alas, Psaki is now entrusted with attempting to clean up the public image of yet another wildly unpopular individual in the Biden administration: none other than Ms. Kamala “I haven’t been to Europe” Harris, who conveniently ticked off the requisite diversity boxes for Biden’s VP pick.
Too bad she appeared to check off none of the actual experience boxes, which is precisely why her approval rating sits at a grand total of 27.8 percent.
This approval rating is even more sour in the context of Biden’s alleged preference for Buttigieg over Harris.
At least she finally got her trip to Paris, however! As Harris made quite the show of using a rather phony French accent while speaking to French scientists.
Par for the course for the Biden admin, which also means its par for the course for more absurdities from Psaki.
And if you think her defenses of Biden are, well, indefensible, just wait until you get a load of her defense of Ms. Harris.
“For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.” [Source: Fox News]
“A bold leader?” That’s an interesting way of putting it.
After all, she’s so “bold” that she has yet to visit the actual border crisis itself, in spite of being the supposed Border “Czar” (Whatever that means these days).
On top of that, as far as “addressing root causes” is concerned, here’s a simple recommendation for the Biden administration: Don’t incentivize illegal migration with $450,000 payouts.
As far as “expanding broadband” is concerned? The Biden administration cannot even figure out the port crisis, much less a more technical endeavor. Plus, the infrastructure bill appears fixated on social justice issues, rather than actual infrastructure issues.
Even CNN can’t defend Ms. Harris anymore, as the network has abruptly shifted to an offensive on Ms. Harris.
Just consider one of its recent reports, which paints a rather unflattering portrayal of Ms. Harris’s supposed contributions to the Biden administration.
“Worn out by what they see as entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus, key West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff — deciding there simply isn’t time to deal with them right now …
Many in the vice president’s circle fume that she’s not being adequately prepared or positioned, and instead is being sidelined … The vice president herself has told several confidants she feels constrained in what she’s able to do politically.” [Source: Breitbart]
Perhaps Ms. Harris is “constrained” due to her propensity to flee in times of crisis and cackle in times of … relative non-crisis.
Perhaps if Ms. Harris demonstrated actual leadership skills, she might not be so “constrained.”
Then again, like the classic champion for snowflakes she can be, Harris and her aides apparently think that her “constraints” are attributed to (you guessed it) her race.
A former Harris aide pointed out Biden’s supposed preference for Buttigieg as one reason for why Harris feels “constrained.”
“It’s hard to miss the specific energy that the White House brings to defend a White man, knowing that Kamala Harris has spent almost a year taking a lot of the hits that the West Wing didn’t want to take themselves.” [Source: Breitbart]
Well, that’s convenient.
Demonstrate utter incompetency, then wheel around and blame racism for low approval ratings.
Symone Sanders, a senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Harris, also raged that the media is apparently not beside itself with praise over Ms. Harris’s four-day escape to Europe, in which she appeared to achieve little.
“It is unfortunate that after a productive trip to France in which we reaffirmed our relationship with America’s oldest ally and demonstrated U.S. leadership on the world stage, and following passage of a historic, bipartisan infrastructure bill that will create jobs and strengthen our communities, some in the media are focused on gossip — not on the results that the President and Vice President have delivered.”[Source: Fox News]
Those “results” being the highest inflation in three decades? The greatest division in recent memory? The increased authoritarianism governing political and “civil” society?
Perhaps it is best that the media focuses on “gossip” in light of the above (unfavorable) developments.
