Man, are you missing Kayleigh McEnany as much as I am?
The Leftist media hated the former White House Press Secretary with a passion, and that may be because she was so well-prepared for almost any question. They had a hard time stumping her or making her look incompetent.
Not only that, but Kayleigh also turned the tables on them more often than not, making their questions look stupid and hypocritical and their reasoning even more so.
In fact, I loved Kayleigh so much as Trump’s press secretary that she almost made me forget how much I enjoyed watching Sarah Huckabee Sanders destroy people like Jim Acosta on a daily basis.
In fact, if you made me choose between the two, I wouldn’t be able to. Each of them did their job wonderfully and, more importantly, they were able to keep the American people informed of the goings-on in the office of the POTUS.
Those were the days, weren’t they?
“Circle Back” Is The New Shrug
Now, under Biden, we have Jen Psaki…
And the only thing we really know about the workings of Biden’s administration is that Psaki has no idea what’s going on, as proven by her inability to answer questions.
Two weeks into her job, and she already has a catchphrase: “Circle back”—as in, “I don’t have the answer to that question, so I’ll have to circle back with you if I ever learn the answer. It’s doubtful that I’ll ever actually get back with you, but at least I’m placating you until you forget that you asked the question in the first place.”
Have you seen the videos?
It’s embarrassing, really.
But what would you expect? She’s an example of Biden’s entire administration as well as the man himself: clueless.
However, what you’ll notice is that the mainstream media isn’t tearing her apart like they did both Huckabee Sanders and McEnany. It makes you wonder why.
If either of these women were as ill-informed as Psaki is, they’d have been CRUCIFIED by the same press that is almost literally holding Biden’s spokeswoman’s hand.
And now, it seems like they’re not only going to hold her hand – but also actively lead her to where she needs to go. It’s now being reported that Psaki and her office are allegedly pre-screening questions from the press corps.
Hey, Media… It’s Time To Take The Kid Gloves OFF
Apparently, Biden staffers are now checking reporters’ questions before Psaki’s briefings to see what they’re planning to ask the press secretary.
And for the record, this report is coming from far-Left rag The Daily Beast, not a Conservative publication.
The Daily Beast said that they have talked to “three sources with knowledge of the matter” and have “written communications” that Psaki and her office have “already on occasion probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when called upon during briefings.”
Now, which outlets have actually bent the knee to these requests remain to be seen, but you can bet that each time Psaki has to “circle back” to an answer, the question came from an outlet DIDN’T submit their questions beforehand.
If this is going to be the protocol going forward, why hold press briefings at all?
Reporters can submit their questions and get back well thought out and researched answers…
You know, like the kind that Kayleigh McEnany and Sarah Huckabee Sanders used to give.
This is a bad start for Biden…
But probably the best of what is sure to come.
