Whitehouse press secretary Jen Psaki has had a rough time, from memes circulated on Reddit and other social media to relentless questioning over Biden’s blunderous comments.
The circle back queen has suffered negative limelight over the past days for two comments in particular.

A popular meme circulated on social media

The most recent comment came from Joe Biden. When speaking about law enforcement Biden said: “the vast majority” of law enforcement is “decent, honorable people.”


When pressed on the issue, Paski doubled down on the comments saying: “That’s exactly what he meant,”

NBC reporter Kristen Welker asked why Biden felt it important to emphasize that most law enforcement were good people. Paski answered:

“Because I think he believes that the men and women who have been serving our country in a variety of capacities have been criticized. Some have been threatened. The roles they’re playing have been questioned over the last several years, and he wanted to reiterate his support for the important work they do. It’s also why he’s visiting the State Department tomorrow.”


Welker replied by making sure that by “vast majority,” Biden did not mean all law enforcement. Daily Wire pointed out.

“I think the point he’s making,” Psaki added, “is that despite reports of individuals in different areas who may have done things that are problematic, that the vast majority of men and women serving in our law enforcement roles, serving in civil service roles, serving in roles across government, do vital and essential work for the American people.”

Jen Psaki’s second offense came when she refused to apologize for comments made about the Space Force, and then lied about it.

The press secretary was asked what Biden planned to do about the Space Force that Trump had started.


“Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” Psaki said. “It is an interesting question. I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact. I’m not sure who that is. I will find out and see if we have any update on that.”

This comment references earlier questioning by the reporters over whether or not Biden would change the colors of Airforce One, America’s presidential jets.

“The top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee is asking you to apologize for some of the comments that you made yesterday in the briefing room about the Space Force,” a reporter said. “Will you apologize?”

“I did send a tweet last night,” Psaki responded. “You may not all be on Twitter, maybe they’re not on Twitter, that said, we invite the members of Space Force to provide an update to all of you on all of the important work that they’re doing and we certainly look forward to seeing continued updates from their team.”|


She lied, her tweet did not indicate any form of apology. She only said: “We look forward to the continuing work of Space Force and invite the members of the team to come visit us in the briefing room anytime to share an update on their important work.”
