White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has only held her position for a couple of weeks, but she’s already drawn heavy criticism for her evasive style.
Psaki typically refuses to give real answers to pressing questions about the Biden administration’s plans, but when she does give a definite answer, she exposes the administration’s decidedly anti-American agenda.
Case in point, after the internet exploded in controversy when it was revealed that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had blocked the national anthem from being played before NBA games, Psaki appeared to agree with Cuban’s shocking decision.
Fox News’s Peter Doocy asked Psaki about the Biden administration’s opinion of Cuban’s removal of the tradition during Wednesday’s press conference, and Psaki responded that “Biden would say” that he supports the basketball team recognizing that “we as a country haven’t lived up to our highest ideals.”
“I haven’t spoken with the president about the decision by Mark Cuban or the Dallas Mavericks,” Psaki said of Cuban’s order. “I know he’s incredibly proud to be an American, and has great respect for the anthem, and all that represents, especially for our men and women serving in uniform around the world.”
He’d also say that, of course, that part of the — that pride in our country means recognizing moments where we as a country haven’t lived up to our highest ideals, which is often and at times what people are speaking to when they take action at sporting events. And it means respecting the right of people, granted to them in the Constitution, to peacefully protest. That’s why he ran for President in the first place, and that’s what he’s focused on doing every day.
Psaki’s answer was still a non-answer, but it revealed a very sinister trend in the brand new administration. “America First” as foreign policy is officially dead — Biden himself made that clear.
“America First” as a domestic policy is cancelled — a decision Biden might not be so quick to announce publically, but Psaki clearly has no problem affirming.
