I guess it’s too much to expect elementary competence any more, even from a Presidential press secretary. Excerpt:
It’s been two months since former White House press secretary Jen Psaki packed her bags and the current press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre moved in, giving reporters enough time to offer their opinions of Jean-Pierre’s performance at the stand and how they really feel about her compared to Psaki.
According to Fox News, one reporter said Jean-Pierre can act “uniformed” at times and ill-prepared to discuss the issues of the day.
“If your M.O. is going to be reading prepared answers, you should have a lot of prepared answers so that you’re not just deferring to reporters constantly,” the reporter said.
Another said Jean-Pierre doesn’t take the time to answer reporter’s questions throughly, frequently admitting that she just doesn’t have an answer for them.
“She is poorly received as she isn’t taking time to answer questions or banter with reporters on the issues of the day… a press secretary has to share some information, kind of a give and take, but she just doesn’t appear willing to do that yet,” the reporter said.
It was also mentioned that on several occasions Jean-Pierre has wasted everyone’s time because she often tells reporters that she “has nothing from the podium” to say.
White House reporters also complained that she delivers useless information, almost as if she did no preparation at all for the briefing.
Folks are of course confused by Jean-Pierre’s staggering display of incompetence, but they really shouldn’t be. Why? Well, I’m a-gonna tell you.
If you’re expecting competence from this administration, you need to check your premises, as they are almost certainly flawed. You are likely presuming that the personnel choices of the Biden(‘s handlers) administration are at least in part aimed at fitting out the best person to handle a specific position. As Jean-Pierre’s appointment and subsequent performance illustrate very clearly, that isn’t the case. She was chosen, candidly, for her melanin content and sexual preference. She was chosen, not for her experience, skills or abilities, but because she ticked several “diversity” check boxes. And now, if you watch any of her pitiful performances in press conferences, you can see the result of that practice.
And if you look at the state of the economy, and the polling numbers, you can see the American people’s response to an administration that follows these practices.
