Watch: Psaki Furious When Asked Simple Question about Biden’s Ukraine “Endgame”

Another day of press conferences, another rough day for Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, the press secretary for Biden’s White House that has a tendency to…not answer questions and also not “circle back.”

Instead, when asked something other than a softball, she has a tendency to either give a non-answer or just not answer it, something particularly frustrating when the question is about something important.

Such was the case on Monday, the 14th of March, when Psaki was asked what America’s endgame was in Ukraine. A reporter, asking her about that endgame, said (roughly, he was a bit hard to understand):

You are not going there, you are not sending troops there, there will not be a no-flight zone…would it be a fair assessment to say that you’re pushing these guys to commit suicide knowing that Russia has a super power and will eventually capture the main cities, Kiev and Kharkiv and all the cities around there? What is the endgame?

Psaki, responding to the question in her usual manner, said:

Well, the endgame is really a question for President Putin. We have completely crushed his economy. We have provided military assistance, humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians, enabling them to fight far longer than the Russian leadership anticipated. And again, he has to determine what the path forward looks like for him.”

Then, with that, Psaki walks away from the podium. Watch that sorry spectacle here:

It was a bad answer, as it’s generally not a great idea to say that the initiative lies with the other side, but also a non-answer. Read more

  1. Psaki claims a lot more than Biden has actually done, both to help the Ukraine and to stop Putin and the Russian invasion.

    Biden and his administration is really pathetic, and the American people have been learning that just on his domestic policies and agendas, let alone his Afghanistan and Ukraine failures.

    Then Psaki gets even madder when people expose their failures, and when she has no answers about reversing their obvious failures, like the Democrats war on American carbon base energy and the inflation caused by Biden’s policies and agendas.

    Then both Biden and Psaki pretend that they don’t understand why the American people give Biden very low approval ratings, and very high disapproval ratings, as the American people are barely scratching out a living, which is quite the opposite when Trump was President.

    The difference between Trump and Biden is like day and night, Trump being the day and Biden being the night that has caused the disastrous US economy and the American people’s financial disparity.

    (Disparity – under Trump the rich did well, but the poor and middleclass also did very well, but under Biden the rich are doing very well, while the poor and middleclass are suffering. Financially inflation does nothing to the rich, but is devastating for the poor and middleclass.)

  2. Too bad the reporter didn’t shout at her as she was leaving “Are you going to circle back on my question?”
