Psaki had one of her moments during a press conference on November 9th, absolutely losing her professional demeanor, a demeanor always on the edge of disappearing.
That happened when she freaked out after Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked her about CDC mask policy, snapping at him angrily and refusing to give an honest answer to her question. It was entirely unprofessional, and shows just how much of a joke administration is.
The fiery back and forth began when Heinrich pressed her to answer a question on a topic the left hates answering now: masks.
Trying to get her to say if the CDC will change its guidance, Heinrich asked “When are we going to hear from the CDC on this guidance? California yesterday changed their guidance. Randi Weingarten — teachers union — is vocally asking for the White House and the CDC to weigh in. So when are we going to hear from the CDC about updating the guidance on masks?”
Then, after refusing to answer Heinrich’s question satisfactorily, Psaki started going completely off topic and rambling about schools, saying “We want kids to be in school. Ninety-eight percent of schools are open. That’s a very —”
While keeping schools open would be great, that’s not what Heinrich asked about. So, because time at such conferences is a rare time to ask questions and hope they’ll be answered, Heinrich tried to interupt and push the press secretary back on topic, managing to get one work out and saying “Do —”
That was when the fiery Psaki snapped, giving the usual response of someone who just can’t stand being pushed back on track. Snapping at Heinrich, Psaki said “Let me finish! That’s a very good sign.” Watch her here
