Jen Psaki Admits They Do Not Recommend Biden Take Questions From Reporters

 Psaki Admits Joe Biden Is Not Capable Of Taking Questions

In a CNN podcast released Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that President Joe Biden answering impromptu questions from reporters “is not something we recommend.”

 

 

 

Psaki made the admission during an interview with CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod for his podcast “The Axe Files,” and said that she has told Biden not to answer questions from reporters.

Axelrod and Psaki started talking about the subject when Axelrod brought up an event in which Biden unexpectedly ran into CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins at the White House, Collins continued to question the president whether a minimum wage raise to $15 will be included in the coronavirus relief bill that was signed into law in March.

According to Axelrod, Biden offered the reporter an accurate response that he didn’t think the increase would be included in the bill, but that would have caused Psaki heartburn and made her wonder why Biden was able to wander around in the hallways doing impromptu interviews. He then went on to question Psaki how she managed it.

Psaki laughed about the event, explaining that it occurred after she had left work and Biden was on his way back to his home. She went on to say that Biden answers questions “nearly every day that he’s out in front of the press.”

“That is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times we say ‘don’t take questions, but he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”  she continued.

Psaki went on to explain that the administration had avoided getting distracted by not pushing Biden to have more regular news conferences where he will have to answer questions about specific subjects. Psaki provided examples like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., impeachment, and Rep. Liz Cheney R-Wyoming.

She further said that they needed him to devote his attention to issues that the American people care about more, such as the coronavirus pandemic and the economy.

Following heavy criticism from the relatively friendly media for not attending one, Biden addressed his first solo press conference on March 25, the 65th day of his presidency. Since former President Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s, no president has gone this long without holding a press conference since assuming office. According to the New York Post, Biden has a pattern of leaving announcements, presentations, and other activities without responding to questions from reporters.

The podcast is called “The Axe Files” posted as episode 284- Jen Psaki

  • Yeah I’m sure the plandemic and ruining the economy are of the utmost importance to this nitwit, so he wants to handle that personally. Axelrod should have asked Psaki, when are they planning on sizing him for a strait jacket and securing him a room at Bellevue ?
