White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has done it again. It's almost as though she is purposely trying to be unlikeable. But, she is the press secretary, so Americans must endure the spectacle of sidestepping tough questions and her failed attempts to appear charming.
Jen Psaki did herself no favors when she made an appearance on a left-leaning podcast and joked that media coverage of violence in major cities like New York came from an "alternate universe." RNC Research shared a clip of the interview on Twitter.
"CNN [is saying] 'Pentagon: As many as 8,500 US troops on heightened alert.' OK, true," Psaki said. "Same on MSNBC. CNBC is doing their own thing about the market."
"And then, on Fox is ['The Five' co-host] Jeanine Pirro talking about 'soft-on-crime consequences. I mean, what does that even mean, right? So, there's just an alternate universe on some coverage. What's scary about it is, a lot of people watch that," Psaki added.
Michigan gubernatorial candidate and former Detroit police chief James Craig joined Fox Business Anchor Maria Bartiromo on Sunday and discussed Psaki's dismissive attitude toward crime in America.
Bartiromo asked the former police chief to give his reaction to Jen Psaki, saying, "What does that even mean."
"She's pathetic," Craig responded. "That smug, disrespectful attitude, in addition to apologizing to the men and women who serve, how about apologizing to victims and victims' families."
The conversation shifted to focus on progressive policies that defund the police and dramatically alter the federal prison system.
