Biden’s Cabinet Is A Mess: Press Sec Psaki Caught Up In Third Controversy, Past Tweets Come Back To Haunt Her

Joe Biden hasn’t been in office an entire month yet and his Press Secretary has already been mired in controversy.

First, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to walk back a snub directed at the Space Force.

Then members of the White House Press core leaked to the liberal Daily Beast that they are upset because Psaki’s office has been screening reporters to get a jump on their questions. 

The White House Correspondents Associations (WHCA) has reportedly instructed reporters not to accommodate the administration: 

One reporter raised the issue during an informal White House Correspondents Association Zoom call last Friday. According to multiple sources, leaders at the meeting advised print reporters to push back against requests by the White House press team to learn of questions in advance, or simply to not respond to the Biden team’s inquiries.

But that is just the tip of the iceberg, some very disturbing social media posts are coming back to haunt Psaki. 

Screenshots have been taken of some very controversial tweets, a few of them were posted as recent as last year. In February 2020 Psaki slammed Bernie and Trump supporters, she wrote that “Trump supporters are the worst no [question].”

Psaki also did her part pushing the Russian hoax and in 2017 wrote, “Important to remember Flynn is the tip of the iceberg. Russia ties with Trump team, and interest in creating chaos in US are ongoing.”

In May of 2020, Psaki wrote, “Comey and Russia was a factor. It was not the only factor. Masogyny [sic] is real. [U]nderrated-Dems loss of connection with people struggling.”

Commenting on General Flynn’s legal after documents were declassified showing he was set up.

Lastly, in 2020 Psaki used a gay slur to describe Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, calling him “Lady G” while he questioned Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates over her role in the Trump Russian investigation. 

“Only in 2020 does #LadyG get to push a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories while questioning @SallyQYates (aka an American hero),” Psaki wrote.

Thanks to documents that were declassified in 2020 those “debunked conspiracy theories” were true. Thanks to Robert Mueller (much to his disappointment) who debunked the Trump Russia collusion claim we learned it was Democrats promoting conspiracy theories. 

Lastly, here is some icing on the cake to this story, Psaki is obsessed with how she is seen on Twitter, this is going to drive her crazy.
