Love Jen. Love her dismissing arm movement and calm demeanor when she cuts off the nutters' nonsense spewing heads.

31. The Trumpsters are obsessed with the Chinese Communist Party.

They are also obsessed with trying to tie Biden and his family to them. Bizarre conspiracies and lies are all they have, along with projection (See: Trump, Ivanka, and her fast-tracked Chinese trademarks, for example.)

This peroxide-poisoned nutbag was from Newsmarx, btw. They're even more off their rockers than Fox.

At what point do they start asking legitimate questions?

They're to busy spending $500 + tip to coif their flowing locks (both men and women).

These are unserious people, who should be given no more than a passing fancy.

Fox News has one show 24/7: “Own the Libs” is the only show they broadcast, and they aren’t getting any help from Psaki.

16. Yes, that sums it up in one word

Fox doesn't do legitimate questions, because their audience wants to be entertained, NOT informed. If they behaved like real journalists, they would lose their jobs.

the British king unleashing the "merciless savage" Indians against the white population?

"He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions."

23. But that was as a compromise with slave states

The white enslavers wanted to get credit for the people they bought and sold because they needed the numbers. So the “3/5” compromise was about political power. The compromise was shamefully necessary in order to get agreements from the South necessary to forge a country.

Sorrowfully, millions of chalky-caukies still feel that blacks are only “worth” 3/5 of a white person. More sorrowfully, hundreds of them are currently serving as Senators and Representatives in Washington.

11. I want to know HOW and WHY are these propaganda tools allowed to be in the WH press room?

Isn't there some bar of professional integrity that journalists have to rise above in order to even be allowed into that room? Where is the fire, the intelligence, and the knowledge of a Helen Thomas? Helen was no beacon of impartiality--her views were as well known as any of these Fox clones. But she did her homework, knew her facts, and never needed to resort to inserting lies into "questions" in order to get some kind of pre-programmed answer. Presidents and their press secretaries were always terrified of Helen because she always knew what she was talking about at least as well as the people on the receiving end of her questions.

It's well and good that Joe Biden has someone in there who has Psaki's wit, intelligence, and patience with these plants, and puts them down systematically without losing her cool. He chose extremely well. It helps that she is ALWAYS smarter and better prepared with facts than the right wing plants are, and spots their lies every time. But why even give them a platform? There ought to be a required minimum standard of journalistic integrity BEFORE one gets a pass to even be in that room.

13. At this point, she knows their "questions" before they even ask them

Right wing "press" shills are so predictable, she could practically ask their questions for them, and then respond all on her own. That's why she is so effective. She knows their garbage, and she knows who will ask what. They are so feeble, they think she will not spot their tactics, when in reality, she has them pegged before they even show up.

17. This allows the administration to confront

the propaganda head-on every day. The daily takedowns are very consistent and effective, as well as civil. That is where the stupid should be, out in the open for all to see, where the contrast between reasonable and crazy can be seen clearly.

27. Oh yes, me too

When it comes to takedowns, Psaki is truly prolific. For all the times that we think back and wish we had said, "X,y,z.....", she does it every day. What a treasure she is.

In the near future when someone gets owned, people will undoubtedly say he/she got Psaki-ed!!

33. Still, i dont think they should be given credibility as a news source at all

Having them in the pressroom only emboldens them, and i think lowers the bar where credible news is concerned.

34. It did appear that way

during the Trump administration, but Psaki and Biden make their lack of credibility glaringly obvious. If they did not appear in the pressroom, they still would be reaching millions of people on TV and online with their dishonest reporting, where they could rant about being censored by an oppressive Democratic administration. Also a future republican administration would then have a good excuse to ban legitimate news outlets from the White House, something I believe Trump already tried.

Of course, I don't like seeing them either, but as long as tens of millions of viewers think they are real news, they need to be called out on a regular basis.

What was that about black people being 3/5 of a person written into Article II of the US Constitution? Because it was.

I have never read the constitution in regards to reference to women but I do not think there is even one.

20. The abolitionist movement in England was the prime mover for many of our founding fathers.

There had already been some court rulings in England against slavery and especially in the southern states it was important because the wealth was tied up in land and slaves. Why they gave the slave states the representation of 3/5 of their slaves no one really knows but it was in my opinion what eventually became the Civil War. Even at the beginning of the Civil War an abolitionist could not have been elected to the Presidency, but the years of resentment over being ruled by a small and wealthier minority in the south who continuously opposed infrastructure improvements like a transcontinental railroad and better roads and bridges lead up to a huge resentment. On the flip side the seditionists promised cheap slaves for the poor people when the south seceded and the import ban was eliminated. Sounds just like today.

22. Apparently, this dunce is either uninformed, or willfully dissembling.

She's never heard "three-fifths of all others" before, among other little gems? That constitutional rights were originally conceived as applying to white male landowners?

It's in much the same as the way the historical context of the Magna Carta is misunderstood. Some historians, or more probably wannabe historians, point to that as the juncture at which power was wrested from the monarchy and all people started to share in the country and in its governance. In fact, it took some of the power from the king and split it up among the aristocracy. It was limited and narrow.

If the Constitution was perfectly conceived and executed, it wouldn't have needed 33 amendments. Even the 14th didn't give everyone the vote. Women and Native Americans were still excluded, not being given that right until the early 20th Century, which seems almost impossible.

So, if one is to talk about "institutional racism," the subject should include institutional misogyny.

The Chinese Communist Party has a better understanding of American history than does the Requblican Party which wants to believe that America and Trump were given to them by God
