White House Plames UK PM for Biden’s Inability to Answer Questions

There is nothing about this response that is good.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday blamed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for the chaos in the Oval Office the day before, saying they were not given a head’s up he was going to call on members of his press corps.


‘He called on individuals within his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance,’ she said in her daily press briefing.


Psaki was quizzed repeatedly on why British reporters were called on during the Oval Office meeting with President Joe Biden but American reporters were not. White House aides ushered reporters out of the room, shouting over the journalists, as they tried to ask Biden questions.

  1. Yet another foreign policy flub throwing a close ally under the bus
  2. Why would this be a surprise? There was a room full of reporters.
  3. Even if it was a surprise, why can’t Biden answer questions in an unscripted format? People ask me questions all the time without warning me ahead of time about when and what they would ask.

    I sure wouldn’t want Psaki’s job. Bet she wishes she could wander the halls of the WH just slapping the shit out of people.

    Truck Driver Joe is not only a weak president, he is such a weak person.
    Now, no one is afraid of him. Not members of his own party. Not the media, though many still toe the liberal line, not the average person (how many times did stadiums erupt with Fuck DonaldTrump?)
    If you crossed President Trump, he would hit back at you. Senile Joe cowers in a corner and sucks his thumb and cuddles with his security blanket.
