Joe Biden has a long history of performing poorly before the press. He’s not good with tough questions and frequently loses his temper. So, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to see his White House Press Secretary is just as terrible.
Jen Psaki has already fumbled numerous times while speaking before the press. From all appearances, she is unimpressive at her job. And this is with a mainstream media treating this administration with kid gloves. I wonder how Psaki would handle the job, when the media were out for blood during the Trump administration?
Psaki was called out for attempts to get the media’s questions ahead of time. That suggested she and her team were not prepared for even softball questions from the left-leaning media. Now, she is facing more backlash after an off-handed comment that insulted a branch of the military.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki faced backlash on Tuesday after she appeared to mock a branch of the United States Military during a press conference, which sparked calls that she needed to apologize for her “disgraceful” comment.
Psaki was asked about what Democrat President Joe Biden’s plans were regarding the Space Force, including whether he wanted to keep the new military branch.
“Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” Psaki responded…
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL), the House Armed Services Committee’s top Republican, demanded that Psaki apologized for the remark.
“It’s concerning to see the Biden administration’s press secretary blatantly diminish an entire branch of our military as the punchline of a joke, which I’m sure China would find funny,” Rogers said…
Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) also slammed the Biden administration over the remarks, saying that it was a sign that they were not taking the national security threat posed by China seriously. [Source: Daily Wire]
“Plane of today” references previous questions from reporters about the colors on Air Force One. Psaki is associating our new and vital branch of the military with unimportant questions about plane paint jobs.
Since the creation of the Space Force (which was passed by Congress with overwhelming bipartisan support) has been the target of ridicule by the left. Not because it isn’t needed, but because it was the brainchild of President Trump.
Democrats don’t seem to understand (or refuse to understand) that the Space Force is needed to protect our many assets currently orbiting the planet. You know, all those satellites that make modern life possible? Satellites that our enemies in China would just love to knock out of the sky?
Psaki doesn’t seem to understand just how important this branch of our military is. More than just protecting our assets, the Space Force provides crucial security and surveillance for our country. Moving forward, it can mean the difference between defense against advance threats, or not.
Biden’s press secretary doesn’t seem to understand or care about that. Maybe next time she is asked a serious question, she can show a little bit more respect. If that’s even possible.
