Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki may have admitted that President Joe Biden “isn’t perfect,” but she couldn’t do so without pointing a finger at his predecessor.
Psaki drummed up fear over a second term in the White House for former President Donald Trump during a monologue Sunday on her MSNBC show, “Inside with Jen Psaki” where she warned viewers about the so-called threat to democracy he would unleash.
“Had a few things to get off my chest this morning…,” Psaki tweeted along with a clip of her over-three-minute screed in which she failed to see the irony in any of her alarms.

While her warnings about “some truly scary, authoritarian, banana republic-type stuff” sound like they could be describing the current Biden administration, Psaki was actually reacting to a recent Univision interview of Trump in which he said he would indict his political enemies if he regains office.
“Trump is forecasting that in a second term, he will wield power however he chooses, unconstrained by the rule of law,” she told viewers, aghast.
Psaki cited left-wing news outlets that are also fanning the flames with rhetoric warning of an unleashed Trump as the GOP frontrunner is still clearly running away with the polls in the Republican primary lead-up to the 2024 election. But the former Biden spox called out critics of the current 80-year-old commander-in-chief, excusing him because, hey, at least he’s not Trump.
“And yet, the hand-wringing and cocktail party speculation about an alternative to Joe Biden is continuing – will continue. Guess what? Joe Biden isn’t perfect. No candidate is, by the way. But we have to understand what the alternative is here,” Psaki said.
“If elected to a second term, Donald Trump would prosecute anyone he deems an enemy, unleash troops on protesters, and essentially unravel the rule of law as we know it,” she claimed. “And this time, he plans to line his administration with people who will actually help him do it.”
“But sure, Joe Biden is three years older and occasionally trips over things,” Psaki snarked.
“Look, there’s a lot to be concerned about right now when it comes to a second Trump term. The speeches are getting much more disturbing and much more unhinged, and we should all hear it that way,” she told viewers, notably leaving out any of the recently disturbing speeches by her own former boss.
“It’s also important to talk about all of this and important to call it out. But there is nothing more important than digging into his actual plans,” she concluded.”The faintest of silver linings here is that Trump is warning us in his own voice with a microphone on and a camera rolling, by the way, he’s telling us exactly what he plans to do. We all just need to listen.”
Psaki’s alternative version of the facts earned her a stinging backlash on social media.
They ALWAYS accuse others of doing EXACTLY what they are doing. How do people not see this?!

The mirror you have to look into for the rest of your life will never change. It will always show a sellout liar spouting nonsense for a paycheck. The end.

Coming from a propagandist like you

You have no one you can trust to pull you aside and say, “Jen, this is 3D projection”?
