I don’t think it’s controversial to say that the Biden administration is full of losers. Joe didn’t get the best or the brightest to staff his team. Instead, he found perhaps the very worst people to lead the country. And the worst seems to be his White House press secretary.
After having impressive people fill that job in the Trump administration (who had to battle the dishonest and combative media), Joe found someone totally unprepared for the job. Jen Psaki frequently lacks answers to simple questions. She has to “circle back” on issues she should have data for. And when she doesn’t like what a person has to say, she ignores them, dismisses them, or insults them.
What do people say about someone who uses insults in an argument?
It’s especially pathetic when you realize the majority of the media is liberal and isn’t even trying to go hard on Biden. Even then, his press secretary can’t handle their softball questions.
But recently, one reporter actually had a legitimate question. He wanted to know why there have been so many cyberattacks against the U.S. since Biden entered office. Instead of giving a real response, Psaki dodges the question and insults the reporter.
The question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy came after hackers believed to be from Russia have launched attacks on oil and meat companies, disrupting supply chains in the U.S…
“Why do you think that these ransomware attacks have been rising since President Biden took office?”
“Well, first, I would say these are private sector entities who have a responsibility to put in place measures to protect their own cybersecurity,” Psaki responded. “As it relates to why criminal actors are taking actions against private sector entities, I don’t think I’m the right one to speak to that.”
“So, a total coincidence?” Doocy asked.
“I think you could certainly go track down those cyber criminals in Russia and have a good chat with them,” Psaki responded. [Source: Daily Wire]
A weak response from an unimpressive press secretary. Of course, cyberattacks are the responsibility of the president. His FBI and CIA should have been prepared for these damaging attacks. Yet they were too concerned with making diversity videos than defending the United States.
Psaki seems to blame these “private sector entities” for being unable to protect their systems. Funny how socialists suddenly love to distance themselves from companies–when it’s convenient for them (when it’s time to take their money, suddenly we’re all one big family).
When Trump was president, he specifically prioritized protecting America’s cyber infrastructure. He even created a special department to battle online attacks. But I’m sure Biden either shut down that department or defunded it the moment he entered office, as he did with everything else Trump created.
The fact remains it was Biden’s responsibility to defend the country from outside attacks. He and his administration failed to prevent Russian hackers from damaging our pipelines and meat companies. And it’s unlikely he’ll learn from this and do better in the future.
But what Psaki is basically saying is American companies are on their own. They can’t count on the federal government to protect or support them in the face of new attacks. Biden won’t be there to aid them in protecting their vital computer systems from dangerous criminals.
When it comes time to tax these companies into oblivion, however, you can count on Biden.
