After a dismal week for the Biden administration, the New York Times published a “puff piece” profile on White House press secretary Jen Psaki which repeatedly praised her as “straightforward” and “professional,” Fox News reported on Sunday.
The Times piece, published on Friday, is titled “Bully Pulpit No More: Jen Psaki’s Turn at the Lectern.” It details her rise to “political fame” and her journey to becoming an “unlikely cultural force.”
“A cult of Psaki has proliferated online, where clips of her restrained, if occasionally withering exchanges with reporters have established this once obscure political strategist as an unlikely cultural force,” wrote journalist Michael M. Grynbaum. “Her retorts earn ‘yas queen’ praise from liberals, while conservatives jeer her attempts at spin…”
He also wrote about how Psaki is always “crisp and precise in her answers, even if she does not always respond directly to a reporter’s questions…” How about when she crisply and precisely avoids answering at all?
“Jen Psaki goes missing the day the Pentagon announces the Biden admin drones 7 kids, France recalls it’s ambassador, 12,000 people are being stored under a bridge in Texas and the FDA just rejected Biden booster plan… but we have another glowing puff profile. Great work everyone,” wrote Spectator contributor Stephen Miller in sarcastic response to the piece.
