As Twitchy reported, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki exclaimed, apparently without sarcasm, “This is such a good question!” when asked by a member of the White House press corps whether President Biden would be keeping the red, white, and blue color scheme that President Trump had selected for Air Force One.

. @jrpsaki is asked if Biden will keep Trump's paintjob for the new Air Force Once planes (left) or revert to the current look on the existing planes (right). She says she doesn't know but will poke around. pic.twitter.com/5CqaIs9JGk

It was a stupid question, and Psaki had no answer for it. However, we hear that she’s gotten a definitive answer and is passing it along to the press: Biden, nor anyone else, has spent a moment thinking about it.

The president has not spent a moment thinking about the color scheme on Air Force One, and no one is going to submit a decision memo to him on that particular topic, @presssec Jen Psaki says, leaving the question of whether AF1 keeps its traditional colors up in the air. https://t.co/NqVGnrUvLs

I can’t believe time was wasted asking this question.
— Kate Byrd (@kswb1) January 22, 2021
Very important question

The depth of the questions from some of the WH Press corp is stagering.

Jennifer, I don't see this mentioned in the comments: Which reporter asked the airplane question?
— Ari Herzog (@ariherzog) January 23, 2021
Yeah, we still don’t know, but we’d really like to.
Who cares? They have more important issues to focus on.

No way this is a quote from Psaki. There aren't enough "um"s for this to be something @PressSec said.

Are y’all really grasping at straws? Go talk about something else

Jennifer, For the love of God and all that is holy, would you please ask your colleagues to stop asking stupid and ridiculous questions during these press briefings. For goodness sake haven’t we had enough of amateur hour for four years? Thank you.

You should flush your journalism degree down the toilet.

This is a preview of the next 4 years, when no reporter is going to challenge the president or ask a question on anything more hard hitting than his plane’s paint job.
— Lee Delange (@ToCityHoller) January 23, 2021
I can tell this is going to be 4 years of soft journalism and hardcore propaganda.
— Jane (@AMinimalistMa) January 23, 2021
Did you really report on this? You should be ashamed of yourself.
— Jen Raimondo (@jraimondo) January 23, 2021
Literally no one cares except reporters who don't care enough to actually do their jobs and ask questions that are important. All of you covering this should be ashamed of yourselves.

Shouldn’t you be concerned with bigger issues? You are letting down the American people by fawning over this man. Step it up please.

So when asked about the color scheme for Air Force One, Psaki tracks down an answer, but when asked why Biden wasn’t obeying his own executive order mandating masks on federal property, she says, “We have bigger things to worry about.”
