After four years of treating the Trump administration with outright hostility in the White House Press Room, the media showed this week that they are now going to return to being obedient little lapdogs under Biden.
Biden’s press secretary was asked on Wednesday about the color scheme on Air Force One.
Such a hard hitting question! They really are speaking truth to power, aren’t they?
From ABC News:
Psaki, who double-masked before taking them off to answer questions, threw subtle shade at the notably lax mask-wearing habits of Trump and many in his administration.
“The president has also asked us to be models for the American people,” she said.
A relentless ability to stay on message produced at least one cringe-worthy line: “The issue that he wakes up every day focused on is getting this pandemic under control. The issue he goes to bed every night focused on is getting this pandemic under control,” she said.
Psaki showed a bone-dry wit when one reporter asked if Biden planned to keep the new color scheme that Trump ordered for Air Force One.
“This is such a good question,” Psaki said. “I have not had the opportunity to dig into that today.”
It was the first White House press briefing since Dec. 15, 2020, when Kayleigh McEnany held the last of her 42 sessions for Trump, according to journalist Mark Knoller.
After Psaki was done, observers on both CNN and Fox News Channel agreed that briefing’s tone was markedly different from those during the Trump administration.
