Last fall, CNN+ star Chris Wallace said that Jen Psaki was “one of the best press secretaries ever.” We made fun of him at the time, but he might have had a point. Sure, she lied a lot, but at least she did it off-the-cuff, and her sparring with Fox News’ Peter Doocy was always fun. Now that Karine Jean-Pierre is at the helm, we can sort of see Wallace’s point. Watch Jean-Pierre flip through her binder and do some improv after being asked for an update on the baby formula shortage.

If I were her, I would relive that moment the rest of my life. Those are the kind of things that haunt me.

Instead of q & a format, wouldn’t it just be easier to just put the binder on a card table, then ask the reporters to come up and see if the answers to any of their questions are in there on that particular day?
