Psaki on the Biden WH and press freedom

Cued to start at point of press discussion starting with Biden letting MBS off for murdering a Wash Post journalist.

Psaki is asked if she feels that justice has been done to the crown prince for the brutal murder. Well gawd's nightgown what about the brutal persecution of Assange? Hmm? Let's talk about that.

Psaki: Biden has created the Khasshogi rule that means that anyone that threatens a journalist should be held to account.

Re-posting this to show how Psaki or Ptatooe as I see her. I am going to have to put her on ignore because she bugs the hell out of me with her sanctimonious lying bag of air. Good grief who would want a job where all you do is lie about what's happening to people who know that you are lying about what just happened? Don't they have any integrity? Yeah that was redundant wasn't it.

This afternoon I am going to blast this clip on the Twit and ask why Biden is still persecuting Julian Assange if he believes that a free press is a must. Gotta start making some more noise on getting him home with his family.

and Psaki had a nice start but has quickly moved into the usual territory for press secretaries. She's lying. The press knows she's lying. Yet no one asks "why are you lying?" This applies to all of them.

Biden’s worse than I imagined he would be. It’s really ballzy to promise people to give them money if they did something for him, they did and he just did nothing. So far that’s exactly what he’s done about it. Now this blatant lie about $15 on top of it, his heinous foreign policy crimes and the world is both going wtf and lol at us. I bet they know Biden’s not there. Think he’s really talking to Putin in real time? Or Merkle or lil napoleon?

Nailed it. Just like they’ve nailed us for decades. We decide when this started? Reagan or Clinton or both? Democrats got on board with Clinton?

@snoopydawg As cynical as I am, I'm still surprised they've opted to pull the football with regards to "$2000 checks immediately." Because they went in so hard on that and made it a direct quotable promise, I really figured they would deliver on that. I guess they figured because TINA worked well enough for them in 2020 that it's going to keep working. (And I'm not convinced they're not right about that. Sigh.)

I think. Might be some weird rule that makes him have to vote for her even with all her baggage, but if not he can tell Biden that if he wants her in he gets a good package done. And then some. Go with Wyden's plan of keeping the relief coming as long as it is needed. Big lift, but I'd love to see some people getting a break.

BERNIE should just eliminate Neera Tanden chances and say he's not going to vote for her.

Hey! What are you hearing about Texas or any of the other states that got hit with the deep freeze? After a week I found out that many poor and black areas in Mississippi still have no water and from Biden's talk in Texas last week it looks like poor people are going to have to find ways to deal on their own. This is Biden's Katrina. It is definitely intentional what they do when they don't help.

I guess they figured because TINA worked well enough for them in 2020 that it's going to keep working.

Feature or bug? When dems went after the GP in certain states and got them removed from the ballot I thought that was so they'd piss people off and they would stay home and not vote down ticket dems and then dems would lose the senate. Oops that didn't happen. Now they are losing it on purpose.

This is my name for her. She’s not going to last long I bet. Good. I like my lying press Secretaries to be less arrogant and bitchy with how she talks. It’s like how dare you even ask me questions?

She is not only bad at this, but she is getting worse each time she has to think up a new lie.

Thread.

I buried the lede

Psaki on trying to overrule the parliamentarian on $15 min wage: "That’s not an action we intend to take."

Political capital? Didn’t he get the most votes in history and she’s saying that he has to be stingy with his effing capital? Good grief what a Moran.

That was pretty weird of Psaki saying "it also takes 50 votes". You have that. And if you need one (you don't, you have 50 and probably more) then do some work. Tanden's awful and you're still trying to get her confirmed.

I wrote elsewhere that Psaki started lying on Feb. 22nd. It might have been earlier but that's the first time I heard her covering up whatever the administration is doing. I can't remember the thing she was lying about. The real news was her lying. And then this BS.

@Shahryar

I think Biden’s beholden to her for some reason and it’s her that wants Neera in there. To do what though? Nothing good I’m sure.

It’s my understanding that if Harris overrules her then to override Harris there needs to be 60 votes which republicans don’t have nor will any democrat dare to cross over. But if that is wrong then you are right. They have 50 votes. Manchin wont play ball? Tell him he is off committee seats. But his donors would fight that. Bummer. I don’t know. But it’s effing lame.

@snoopydawg They'll drag out Tanden's nomination until they can figure out how to get the votes, which they will do somehow. $15/hour minimum wage is already a memory. Nothing will fundamentally change. It would be nice to be wrong, but they're doubling down on Tanden and Biden already told Governors behind the scenes this wasn't happening, so that's that.

@Snode

We are bringing back just about everything from the Bush/Bama years already. How many things did Obama run on and failed to do that Biden’s doing right now? Obama promised to raise minimum wage and didn’t. Biden’s more ballzy about it because it’s on top of the checks and after Trump showed us that presidents ACTUALLY ARE above the law it makes Biden look really stupid and just plain evil.

on "how Biden has Lost the Left" is a pretty flawless look at what has happened in the past week.

Putting aside tangential quibbling about if Biden ever Really "had" the left, and wondering how history will judge these first months, it's Krystal Klear to me that the succession of events means that the thesis is solid. Biden has lost the left.

Quickly enumerated: Khashoggi's murder and the lack of action towards Saudi Arabia. Not to mention allowing MBS to go scot-free.

Air strikes in Syria with no Congressional approval. Rules? What rules?

Biden in Texas apparently boosting Governor Abbot and offering victims of the greed no comfort.

Conflating a parliamentarian's opinion as somehow important. (in a similar circumstance the GOP replaced the parliamentarian.)

Killing the Minimum Wage hike.

The Nightmare that is Neera Tanden. A hill Biden appears ready to die on.

The only little bit of suspense left, maybe, is what Bernie will do. The Covid Relief Bill is in his committee. What's in the Bill submitted to the Senate is his decision.

Evening Joe. Gathering this harvest of thorns day in and day out as you are doing is no easy
task. Thank you for what you do.

Will Bernie also lose the Left? IDK.

I think he will. He’s lost so many people already. He can put the bill in a must pass defense one or anywhere that republicans put theirs when they sneak things into bills. Why hasn’t Bernie ever done that?

Yes I thought krystal did a great job. She usually does, but you can tell she’s ticked too. Her and him are swearing more lately.

Omg I just remembered this tweet with Bree and Ro. It might knock your socks off.

I saw a tweet about Obama’s promise to raise it to $9.25, but he never did not even after he got shit for it. I wish I’d known that. Hell maybe I did.
