She may be a little bitter from her time in the White House administration. Jen Psaki had the no-win task of trying to defend President Joe Biden’s words and actions as the White House Press Secretary.
Now she has some words to say about her former boss and the impact he might have on the midterm elections.
Psaki appeared on Sunday’s edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” She said that if the midterm elections are a referendum on President Joe Biden’s first two years in office, the Democratic Party will lose their majorities in both chambers of the House.
Psaki said, “I think that Democrats if the election is about who is the most extreme as we saw, you know Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene, I’ll say her name, sitting over his left side, then they’re going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose. And they know that.”
She also went further talking about the issue of crime as a huge vulnerability for the Democrats. In fact, she said it was their biggest vulnerability.
And Psaki summed up her thoughts by reminding people to follow the money and focus on where people are spending money. She used the race in Pennsylvania as a good example to follow.
She said that in Pennsylvania the Republicans were spending millions of dollars on television ads on crime. They are blasting the Democratic candidate, Fetterman because that is where he is vulnerable. Psaki noted that the economy was a black cloud that hangs over everything, but you also have to look at the state-by-state factors like crime in the state of Pennsylvania race.
Psaki left her position as White House Press Secretary in May after she served for more than a year. Now she is a contributor at MSNBC, and will soon be a host on one of their shows.
Her commentary on Biden comes on the heels of an ABC News-Washington Post poll that found that 56 percent of the Democratic Party as well as Democrat-leaning Independent voters want the party to choose a different nominee other than Biden for president. In the poll, 9 percent said they had no opinion on the nominee.
