She may have been a partisan hack but former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki seemed to be the one that kept the sinking ship known as the Biden administration afloat.
When Biden stuck his foot in his mouth no matter how outrageous Psaki would guide the propaganda and keep things moving. Despite how ridiculous she would look defending the president she kept the talking points going and always had an answer (even if it was a stupid one).
New White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre is no Psaki below are a couple of examples.
Peter Doocy just completely STUMPED Psaki’s replacement on her first day
After being torn apart by the press a rumor spread through Washington that Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby was being moved to the White House to stop the bleeding.
SCOOP: @PentagonPresSec John Kirby is moving to the White House for a senior communications role. His exact title and responsibilities are still being determined, but he will be deeply involved in all White House comms and make appearances at briefing.https://t.co/BS93c4eNq0
“There are people in the White House who feel that the timing of Kirby’s hiring demonstrates that White House leadership believes that the first African American White House press secretary needs ‘adult supervision,’” one Democratic source familiar with dynamics in the White House and on Capitol Hill told West Wing Playbook, calling the move “demeaning,” and “insulting.”
This is what happens when people are hired to check the boxes and not based on their merit.
Folks, grab the popcorn this is going to be fun to watch.
