We’re not sure if we’re glad to be seeing Jen Psaki move over to MSNBC or not — she’ll essentially be doing exactly the same thing, just without Fox News’ Peter Doocy to throw her curveballs. It’s been kind of nice having her as press secretary because she provides us with great material. Does she believe what she’s saying, or is she covering up for whoever it is that runs the White House? We always look forward to her briefings the day after President Joe Biden says something monumentally stupid and she has to walk it back.
Speaking of Doocy, he asked Psaki Thursday about a map with the home addresses of Supreme Court justices that activists had posted online. Is this something Biden supports? She could have said “no,” but instead she went with the take that there’s no official U.S. government position on where people protest. Um, we’re pretty sure protesting inside the Capitol Building is a no-no.
Doocy: "Activists posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court justices. Is that kind of thing this president wants?"

Doocy: "These activists posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court justices. Is that the sort of thing this President wants?"
Psaki: "I think the President's view is that there is a lot of passion."
Disgusting that the White House is refusing to condemn this. pic.twitter.com/i5ErEBZ25X

I bet she'd have an official government position on where people protest if it was outside her house.

Anyone got her home address? Bet we can change her minds

Just last night, we had Rep. Eric Swalwell ginning up a defamation suit against a man who made a very well-educated guess about who the leaker was. She’s not a public person, Swalwell argued, while retweeting her photo and LinkedIn bio to his followers. Is there a government position on protesting outside of her home? Because Swalwell thinks someone should be in jail by now.
"Protesting" outside of someone's private residence is not protesting, it is intimidation.

We believe they’re calling them “walk-pasts” to get around that.
So she says @POTUS condones the leak and people directly harassing the justices. Some waffle about respecting privacy but it was window dressing. Unequivocal condemnation of these actions should have come from POTUS.

Yesterday, Psaki wouldn’t say that the administration condemned the leak (or welcomed it).

Cool. That is in complete alignment with their stance on the Capitol being that place. No hypocrisy here. Move along!

You can be darn sure she'd have an official government position if Proud Boys published a map of the home addresses of the liberal justices — and encouraged people to go there and protest.

The fact that she didn't condemn it right then and there, should show all of us exactly where this Administration stands.

The whole point of the leak was probably to see if the public could intimidate them into changing their vote.

We’re old enough to remember “insurrectionists” battering the doors of the Supreme Court trying to interrupt the swearing-in of Brett Kavanaugh, and no one seemed to have a problem with that.
The White House won’t say whether it condemns or welcomes the leak of the Roe v. Wade draft https://t.co/KmHZ37GNF2
