Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared on Meet the Press this weekend and actually said something true.
She suggested that Democrats will lose the midterm elections if the race is a referendum on Joe Biden, which it is.
She also mentioned that crime is a huge liability for Democrats, which is also true.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Democrats know ‘they will lose’ if midterms are referendum on Biden, Psaki says
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki made a confession unfavorable to the Democrats on Sunday, saying they fully know “they will lose” if the 2022 midterm elections are a referendum on President Joe Biden.
Psaki made her prediction during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press as she shared her opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of the Democrats going into the November elections. In her view, Democrats are vulnerable on the issues of crime and the economy, while they hold the high ground on “extremism.”
“Look, I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, as we saw, you know, Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene, I’ll say her name, sitting over his left side, then they’re going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose, and they know that,” Psaki said. She was referring to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

This is exactly why Democrats keep trying to take the focus off of Biden.
