Even we’ve flirted with the notion of Jen Psaki leaving MSNBC and returning to her post as White House press secretary. Sure, she lied a lot, but she also wasn’t afraid to spar with Fox News’ Peter Doocy. And after a couple of rough weeks “circling back,” she seemed to be well prepared.
Her replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, might be the first black, LBGTQ female immigrant to hold the position, but she also sucks. We’ve watched her flip through her binder for a full 20 seconds just to announce that she had no updates on the baby formula shortage.
Politico has taken a look at “Karine’s tough debut” and figured out why it appears that she’s reading from a page:
“She is so focused on not making a mistake that she doesn’t let herself speak freely. A lot of her responses end up becoming… it appears that she’s reading from a page.” https://t.co/74KbwMqH0s

She’s literally reading from a page, if she can find it

I hate to break up the love affair between her and the press, but she is definitely reading from a page.

Which is exactly what she's doing

What is this piece? The position is basically just "Golly, it sure is a tough job, and she'll get better. Good thing she never lies like those damned Republicans. She gets help and she'll continue to improve. No other issues remain. This is just a communication issue."

She’s wholly unprepared for this job. It’s actually painful to watch.

The soft bigotry of low expectations. A lib classic.

1. There is a page in front of her.
2. That page has words.
3. Her eyes are looking at those words.
4. Her mouth is speaking those words.
= she IS reading from the page!

But that’s just because she’s so focused on not making a mistake.
Watch how long it takes Karine Jean-Pierre to say she has no update on the baby formula shortage https://t.co/YriM0byFzg
