Joe Biden’s Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, has brought back the daily press briefings that were canceled during the anti-press administration of Donald Trump. This White House no longer believes that the press is “the enemy of the people.” But that doesn’t mean that the questions posed are going to be particularly enlightening.
We can rely on Fox News to ignore the Biden presidency (as they have been doing thus far). Likewise, Fox will continue to be antagonistic toward Biden and the Democrats (as their CEO admitted is the network’s mission). But they won’t be alone. On Friday CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang had an interesting framing for her questions:
Jiang: A lot of Americans are saying that, you know, the [immigrant] surges are happening under President Biden’s watch after he reversed some previous policy. So does the administration take any accountability for what’s happening?
Psaki: Who are the Americans?
Jiang: Well, I know you don’t want to answer to him, but the former President just released a statement saying that, “The Biden Administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare that they have unleashed onto our nation.”
Psaki: Former President Trump? We don’t take our advice or counsel from former President Trump on immigration policy, which was not only inhumane but ineffective over the last four years.

OUCH! That was a rookie mistake trying to pass off Trump as “a lot of Americans.” The White House press corps needs to come better prepared than that for future interactions with this press secretary. Psaki obviously isn’t the airhead propagandist that they became accustomed to under the Trump regime.
