Psaki Admits to Telling Biden to Avoid Reporters Questions

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted to what Americans have suspected all along, that official urge President Biden not to answer impromptu questions from the press. Psaki’s admission is no shock considering Biden waited over two months before holding a press conference, a stark contrast from Trump who would regularly take questions from reporters.

However, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki admitted to CNN Senior Political Commentator David Axelrod on his podcast “The Axe Files” she regularly recommends Biden should not take questions off the cuff.

According to Fox News:

The two began discussing the subject when Axelrod asked Psaki about a particular instance when Biden inadvertently ran into CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins at the White House, who proceeded to ask the president if a minimum wage increase to $15 would be included in the coronavirus relief package that was signed into law in March.

Psaki laughed off the incident, and explained that it happened after she had already left work and Biden was heading back to his residence. She then claimed that Biden takes questions “nearly every day that he’s out in front of the press.”

“That is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times we say ‘don’t take questions,'” she continued. “But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”

Psaki then claimed the administration has kept from being distracted by avoiding having Biden do more consistent press conferences in which he would have to answer questions about certain topics. She gave examples of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., impeachment, and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. She added that they wanted to focus his time on addressing subjects that they claim the American people care more about, such as the coronavirus pandemic and the economy.

It’s no secret that President Biden has avoided the press but hearing Psaki admit it outright is still a shock.

  1. Biden is not fit to be the President! He continues to avoid any questions which shows he is a poor choice for true Americans! Typical lying politician who is part of the swamp that Trump tried to drain! He started to destroy your America when he was sworn in office!

  2. Why is this an issue – it is well known on how the Democrats fooled the American Public with the support of our liberal, biased media who seen this but, never reported the same?

    1. proof positive on how the biased left leaning media is supporting fake news
      and worse running ads that contain blatant lies and should have been fact checked before
      being run-any reliable news station would have–abc-channel 6 tv in the phila pa
      viewing area ran a commercial from the democrats in which they have biden being credited with 3 different programs that were known to be started in the trump administration-and then they continued to blow smoke at the audience-
      biden continues to take credit for other peoples work-just as he has done for his entire
      47 years in office- a known plagiarizer –can’t change his history-
      and the corrupt media goes along and covers his crimes-

  3. What a load of crap, hidenbiden is an embarrassment, he’s a lying,corrupt,sexualperv,china/ukrainian,puppet,slo,joe,is unfit for the office, and needs to be removed for total incompetence, and mouth piece psacki, needs to quit lying,and feeding us bs,everytime she gets up there.

    1. And the little red-head mouthpiece is every bit as much of an embarrassment as mister Biden and Mz Harris! America must be the laughing stock of the world since November!!! 🙁

  4. Is she stupid or what???
    Ok, I know the answer. However, we’re wayyyy
    away of her. We knew this when senile joe wouldn’t leave his basement to campaign.
    C’mon man……

  5. All of us knew he wasn’t fit for the rigors of the office of President of the United States and that is why they had to steal this election which we know happened. This election was anything but a Biden win. The Dems and their accomplices, the media, threw everything they had to steal it and unfortunately, they did due to state legislatures not knowing their constitutional responsibilities to stop these unlawful executive mandates by secretaries of state and attorney generals of these swing states, ie, PA, WI, MI, AZ, NV, GA. Fortunately, FL, OH and IA had more safeguards in place so the same abuses didn’t happen.

  6. The senile old bastard should be sitting in his basement sniffing his Barbie doll, not sitting in the White House.

  7. She must have to use a very strong perfume to cover up the smell because she is so full of BS.

  8. This broad lies through her teeth, showing that she is a typical DumboRAT. Her comment on “He does what he wants he’s the President” Bullsh**. He does what he wants because he doesn’t know any better. Just how stupid do these DumboRATS think we are that he does what he wants he has NO brain to know any better. NOT MY PRESIDENT

  9. Now this poll is stating the obvious, out of almost 64,000 votes 96% say this presidency is HORRIBLE, now if that isn’t the truth what is.

    1. The vacuous, demented Democrats are willfully blind! They have no interest in seeing the truth. And they’re well on their way to ruining our country! 🙁

  10. Why did you delete my post? Perfectly acceptable statement.
    She has to wear a very strong perfume to cover up the smell because she is so full of BS!

  11. I would like ONE SENTENCE, without the ‘hesitations” & “B.S.” that comes out of her scripted mouth. Just give me a straight ANSWER!. “It’s NEVER” yes, or no. Nothing but a conscripted answer that “makes no sense” & circumvents “the question”. “I’ll circle back to you on that”. Yeah, right… the meantime NONE of this makes any SENSE!

  12. It would take her months to train Biden to say: “Circle back”, but she’s working on that..!!

  13. Everyone on earth knows. The only ones who won’t admit the truth are the lying Democrats – now mainly from the Obama administration. The only reason we have not been militarily attacked by China an/or Russia is that they know our military is still overwhelming – to ANY adversary. This is the military that the Democrat traitors wish to dismember. Democrats HATE America, and they want a thoroughly socialist America ASAP.

  14. Please she didn’t have to say that for us to know. He has avoided the press at all costs. If you want to see how lost he is we can send 10 year old girls in to ask questions. He will show up to smell their hair. What a waste of breath. Pervert Fool

  15. the democrat party has probably been promised by the communists
    that they will be allowed to remain in office after the takeover-
    but being democrats they are as dumb as a slice of swiss cheese and with as many holes in their heads to trust and believe the commies-the people in power and the educated
    are always the first to be executed by the incoming commies-

  16. Senile Joe cannot take impromptu questions because they can’t get the answers on the teleprompter fast enough for him to squint at and haltingly repeat!

    1. Every time I see him pretending to engage the media, honestly I just want go through my tv screen and slap the living lights out of him.
      Of course, he’s an empty shell, probably would crack and crumble. That would be a great gift.

  17. None of my democrat friends will discuss politics anymore, like we could before this sap was installed as chief dumbass. They are all too embarrassed by their mistake voting for the fool. They hang their head in shame. Most democrats are NOT for open borders, defunding police or higher taxes. It is the commie left controlling the schools and media behind the democrat take over. They worked quietly for decades to infiltrate America and now they are pushing to divide us to the point of civil war.
