Jen Psaki revealed the one order she gives Joe Biden that will make every American nervous
The Biden White House is in crisis.
And the latest leak will not do Joe Biden any favors.
That’s because Jen Psaki revealed the one order she gives Joe Biden that will make every American nervous.
Joe Biden’s behavior as President stands out as odd.
Biden rarely holds press conferences or takes questions after speeches.
When Biden does answer reporter’s questions, he announces that he has a prepared list of pre-selected journalists to call on.
Many Americans grew disturbed over the inability of the President of the United States to field questions his staff did not have in advance to prepare answers for.
In an interview with POLITICO’s West Wing Playbook Jen Psaki revealed that staffers order Biden not to take questions from reporters in on the cuff settings because they cannot program Biden with acceptable answers.
It’s not that they’re indifferent to what their boss has to say. Indeed, their livelihoods are directly invested in it. Rather, they’re filled with anxiety that he’s going to take questions from the press and veer off the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.
“I know people who habitually don’t watch it live for that reason,” said one current official.
Biden’s advisers have urged him to answer fewer of the questions being shouted at him by reporters covering his events. While the president sometimes obliges and quickly leaves the podium after remarks, he has a tendency to buck those staffers trying to rein him in. “I’m not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead,” he said after addressing FEMA the other week.
“A lot of times, we say, ‘Don’t take questions,’” press secretary JEN PSAKI told Democratic strategist DAVID AXELROD on his podcast in the spring. “But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”
Americans have never seen anything like this before.
The President’s staff cannot trust him to answer questions, so they instruct him to run away and hide from the press.
Questions about Joe Biden’s cognitive decline have only grown louder with the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Now, this admission by Jen Psaki that Biden lacks the ability to formulate his own answers to questions will only fuel the criticism that Joe Biden is not mentally competent to be President.
