Psaki: GOP ‘Comfortable’ with ‘Older White Man’ Biden

June 1, 2023

Thursday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, former White House press propagandist Jen Psaki said the Republican base is “comfortable” with President Biden because he is an older white man.

Anchor Joy Reid said, “I do feel like Biden has this misunderestimated thing where people assume, ‘Oh, he’s too old. He doesn’t know what he’s doing.’ And then he keeps delivering. Today, he tripped over, I guess there was a sandbag, and Twitter and the right are going crazy. It’s the most important thing in the world. First of all, Donald Trump is 76, he’s not exactly young. And you know, it’s the advance team or whoever’s fault that they put a sandbag in front of him. I trip in my own house. What do you think it is about Joe Biden that he is so enraging to the right? Is it because he is so normal? What do you think it is about him that drives them nuts?”

What world of denial is Joy Reid living in, when she thinks the entire world can’t see every single day that Biden needs to be in an old folks’ home?

Psaki said, “Well, if you look back, Joy, to 2020, they were trying to figure out how to take him out. They can’t make him extreme. They can’t really make him offensive. I mean, one, he’s a white man who’s older, so you know he is comfortable to many in their base.”

It’s the job of propagandists like Reid and Psaki to pretend that Biden is a fit, effective, likeable centrist as president — all of which everyone knows is ludicrous — and to demonize all their political opponents as racist old white men, but nobody on either side buys any of it anymore.
