Jen Psaki Has Certainly Pissed Off Somebody.

Twice, now, I have seen a particularly unflattering picture of Ms. Psaki posted as a thumbnail over a click bait title. The first title made mention of some luxurious home she has (I don't recall the exact adjective)--because I guess living in a nice house makes her a hypocrite for supporting social programs that help the poor. The other click bait title (which I am NOT about to click on) shows up on my Huffpost feed and reads: "Take a look inside Jen Psaki's repulsive life." "Repulsive life" ?! Why don't they just come out and say she has cooties?

The picture chosen to make her look bad shows her with very large breasts and despite the way it is cropped, I suspect she may have been pregnant when it was taken.

Mind you, I'm not saying that pregnant women are unattractive--much less "repulsive"--but a woman carrying all that extra weight may feel ungainly which affects posture and mood and thus result in photos that are less than stellar. And of course, that is the point.

Psaki is attractive, in a polished, professional way--unlike the painted dolls of Fox News. The way she handles herself and her job is also polished and professional, so people gunning for her, her boss and the current administration need to dig out photos that make her look as bad as possible and attack her on whatever grounds--however flimsy--that they can find.

The whole thing is childish, ridiculous and obviously sexist. And, in a way, it highlights just how competent Psaki is. Because if they had anything substantive to work with, they would use it.

4. Nuff said. She's smart, a professional, and handles every situation with class and dignity.

and as I said, NUFF SAID.

2. Childish is right.

We used to see this in grammar school. By the time we got to 7th and 8th grade and high school, most of us had outgrown it.

Except maybe for the few who grew up to become rethugs.

3. I think she is very attractive... but attractive to me includes being intelligent....

... and snarky, too.
I loves me some snarky women. Had 'em around me in one capacity or other since the minute I was born 78 years ago.

I don't know how Jen stays so slim.... what with eating so many Faux Snooze people for lunch!

9. Good one! Eats so many repugs for lunch. I know why she isn't gaining weight...

Repugs are empty calories!

5. Hillary Clinton, too. The National Enquirer has never printed a pic of her that wasn't

unflattering in the extreme.

I guess that rag pays the "Jump out and photograph her while she's taking out the garbage" sleazebags very well indeed.

6. Russian trolls have hated her for years.

It all stems back to when Psaki was the State Department spokesperson in 2014 and routinely criticized Russian aggression against Ukraine.

7. I would like to see her run for office. She has no problem handling the right wing cretins.

8. That's standard M.O. for the Repuke trolls

They've been using a collection of unflattering photos for Hillary, Nancy, Kamala, and other Dem women for as long as I can remember. I guess it's a tribute (in a way) to Jen P. that she's been placed in such lofty company. I'm sure AOC will be joining the crowd soon, if she hasn't already.

Silly, sophomoric and petty, wouldn't you say?

10. All conservatives hate women

They especially hate smart, independent, and well spoken women in positions of authority.
