Psaki Slips up on Who Is in Charge at the WH

Joe Biden has a habit of saying things Like: “they” told me not to answer any more questions or “they” had me do such and so. That, and his general cognitive issues have often prompted people to wonder who is the real power behind Biden.


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was on “The View” on Friday, and she made a big slip-up when it comes to who was in charge at the White House.

As we reported earlier, Psaki got in trouble with one of her comments on “The View” — that Americans should get over their sorrow about the failure of the Democrats’ ‘voting rights’ legislation by taking a “kickboxing class” or maybe getting a “margarita.”

But she also made a rather large slip on who’s in charge at the White House, when she was asked about her plans to leave her job in the future.

Psaki said she didn’t know exactly when she would be leaving. “It’s an honor and a privilege. And I love working for President Oba…President Biden every single day. I love spending time with him, hearing what’s on his mind. Actually going on the road with him is the best thing possible, I wish everybody could have that experience because he gets such joy out of it. No one likes a rope line more than President Biden.”

Who was that again? Sure sounds like she starts to say “President Obama.” Is that the answer to the larger question? That might explain why it’s such a disaster and more to left than Joe ever was before he got in the White House. The far-leftists are the ones pushing the agenda in the Biden Administration. I might also note that Biden may like a rope line because he’s narcissistic, but there aren’t that many people coming out to see him.


“The View”s Ana Navarro also spoke about Biden questioning the legitimacy of the 2022 election during his press conference on Wednesday. She claimed that Psaki had clarified that isn’t what Biden was talking about (which was a lie by Psaki), but then Navarro immediately stoked illegitimacy claims herself.

Navarro claimed there were “many many state measures that would curtail the ability to vote” [there are no such measures]. She also claimed that there were “160 ‘Big Lie’ loyalists running for statewide positions that would give them authority over our elections.” In other words, how dare there be people other than Democrats in power!

“Without reforms, why should voters have faith in the legitimacy of the next election,” Navarro asked Psaki. So wait, 2020 was completely fair, but without the reforms, now 2022 won’t be? How is that logical, and isn’t Navarro ‘attacking democracy’ right here? Isn’t Biden then a ‘Big Lie’ proponent?


Psaki once again tries to make it about Trump. But it was Biden who made the remarks specifically about Democratic legislation.

Biden said, “I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit. It increases — the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these — these reforms passed.” Psaki can’t weasel her way out of it, and once again, Navarro is doubling down on where the Democrats intend to go next when they lose in 2022.
