My observations/opinions on White House press conferences so far

1) Jen Psaki is hitting her stride. Appears more comfortable. Kudos to Jen for not taking the bait. Why should Biden weigh in on Arkansas Governor race. This isn’t the office of the twice impeached president..
2) Some in the media still doesn’t understand the issues of importance to the country. Asking daily about Biden’s opinion on the impeachment trial doesn’t help a single life.
3j The media knows there will be a CDC briefing tomorrow. The questions asked today about the vaccine, given this information, makes no sense.
4) Questioners really should consider whether they are asking a question that does more than split hairs. Whether we have herd immunity early or late summer to me is splitting hairs.
5) judging by some of these questions, the media seems to assume Biden’s policies are fully implemented. There is a lot to address given the mess Biden has to clean up.
6) it seems some of the media knows little about the legislative process. I believe i hear someone ask every day, how long Biden will negotiate with the GOP. If I didn’t know better, I would think the world was going to end if a relief package isn’t passed by Friday.

Communication strategy for Democrats

I’m already hearing media debates over perceived competing interests of impeachment versus advancement of Joe’s agenda. Nonsense. This will continue, so don’t take the bait. Leave the. impeachment issue in the background until the trial. Take a tip from Stacey Abrams, who is THE best communicator we have, currently. During the recent GA Senate election, interviewers would ask her about Trump. She declined to speak about him, and immediately pivoted to the election. Perfection.

Emotions are running hot. It was obvious in speeches yesterday and it’s understandable, given the horror of the January insurrection. Dems need to synchronize communication to be clear, concise and focused on the agenda that got Joe elected.
