Jen Psaki Goes Off After NYT Suggests Biden Is Like Trump


A New York Times reporter tried to push the claim that Biden is pulling from Trumpís playbook and Jen Psaki unloaded.

Psaki was asked, ďThere has been a number of issues in the last say several weeks in which allies of the president are describing him as trump like. Less in terms of his personality but in terms of policy. Even today representing the Cuban government describing the frustration with the president continuing to maintain Trump era policies mainly Cuba. What is the presidentís reaction? Does he accept in some areas of policy he is, in agreement with the former president?Ē

The White House Press Secretary was not having it:

So, look. I could take each one of these on Afghanistan. The former president struck a deal without the Afghan government that we heard the military convey yesterday leading to the demoralization of the Afghan security forces and the Afghan government. We also released 5000 Taliban fighters into Afghanistan. I would say the president took a pretty different approach and that ending the war the former president did not end the American people strongly supports.

As it relates to August Iím not sure what that is what they are referring to, they are comparing the present working to partners? Australia, the United Kingdom to come to an agreement that would help provide security in an important part of the world. In the indo-pacific. A priority for getting out of the war in Afghanistan leaves space for us to spend more time addressing. What was the last one? Immigration?

Ö..

Title 42 is a public health, is a public health requirement. A, because we are in the middle of a pandemic, by the way, we would have made progress on had the former president actually address the pandemic and not suggested people inject bleach. I think we are in a different place. I am happy to discuss more examples. I think people would be hard-pressed to argue the president has taken any aspect of the former presidentís playbook and use it as a model of his own.


Corporate Media Is Desperate For Trump To Come Back

Trump elevated corporate media like The Washington Post and New York Times by constantly attacking them Both newspapers have seen double-digit drops in traffic without Trump around to constantly boost their profits by using them as a foil.

The Times has been pushing the nonsense that Biden is like Trump for weeks.

Jen Psaki shot it down with the moment that Trump will always be remembered for. Trump told Americans to inject bleach. Trump sowed the seeds of the ongoing pandemic with his lies and disinformation, and Trump is the reason why the nation is still struggling.

Joe Biden is not anything like Donald Trump.

1. I terminated my subscription to the NYT a long time ago and will not read this publication

The NYT actually worked hard to elect TFG and is now trying to attack Biden.

3. How does she do it?

Day in and day out with these reporters? She remains calm and will not allow these press conferences to get to the circus environment from the last administration. Sh s a professional and I wish some of the reporters were, also.

4. Typical NYT false equivalencies. I remember them blaming President Obama years for republicans

not accepting Global Warming, because of "Democratic hubris"

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/03/us/politics/republican-leaders-climate-change.html

"The Republican Partyís fast journey from debating how to combat human-caused climate change to arguing that it does not exist is a story of big political money, Democratic hubris in the Obama years and a partisan chasm that grew over nine years like a crack in the Antarctic shelf, favoring extreme positions and uncompromising rhetoric over cooperation and conciliation.
"

and of course we all remember their stellar performance when Judith Miller pushed the WMDs

5. She dodged the question

And that's sad because I think it can be answered. The question was "in some areas was Biden in agreement with Trump Policies". Specifically the policies with respect to Cuba were mentioned. The real answer is that whether or not Biden "agrees" with previous policies, NEW policies have to be developed in an orderly and thoughtful manner. I understand that people "on the ground" are anxious to "reverse" the policies, but not all processes are reversible. You have to look at the current policies, see what damage they have caused, and what will either "cure" that damage, or otherwise stop the damage. It's ""build back better" not "Just go backwards". Trump spent alot of time "undoing" the accomplishments of Obama, without replacing them with anything "better'. He couldn't do it on ACA, he didn't do it with the TPP, and really his NAFTA replacement was a small change, mostly of things with which Obama would probably have agreed. He canceled the Iran agreement and achieved nothing. You can't just "cancel" the previous administration, you have to "replace" it with new, better, policies.

12. Agreed. Obviously it is Psaki's job to answer (not answer)

 

questions like this. But this is still the kind of thing that makes politics suck.
