Psaki Gives Outrageous Excuse for Biden Staff Screaming at Reporters – RedState

As we previously reported, Joe Biden met with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday at the White House to talk about trade and other issues.

Johnson decided to take some questions from British reporters. But, as he was wrapping up, Biden staffers interrupted him mid-sentence. They started screaming at all the reporters to get out and pushed them all out of the room.

Now, they have been doing this a lot, but this was so rude and so vehement, it finally even infuriated the White House reporters themselves, who have been constantly run over by the Biden Administration. The White House press pool finally registered a formal complaint with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. She, of course, blew it off like it was nothing and claimed that Biden takes questions several times a week when the truth is that his people are always trying to keep him from taking them and he hasn’t, in fact, taken any questions in days.

So today, during her press briefing, reporters pressed Psaki on the issue, saying they were cut off when they tried to ask Biden questions. It’s a common and continuing occurrence. Her response? It was Boris Johnson’s fault — he never should have answered anyone’s questions.

“He called on individuals from his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance,” Psaki huffed. She tried to make it into a joke saying the relationship with Great Britain was “so strong and abiding” essentially they could let his action slide.

Seriously? This is your excuse? So now Johnson has to check with you before he takes questions from reporters?

How does this make it better? It just means you wanted him to go along with you not answering any questions at all and if you could have, you’d have shut him down, too. Talk about fascistic. It still doesn’t obviate the fact you’re trying to avoid having Biden answer questions.

So the first question the White House reporters need to ask Biden if they have any integrity at all is “Who is dictating to you not to answer questions and why are you going along with it?” Then prepare for the angry response, because you know that will be coming next. They also need to keep repeating this question to Psaki: “Who is dictating to the president not to answer questions?”

It’s an incredible state of affairs when the alleged leader of the free world isn’t allowed [by someone] to answer questions from reporters.

White House Reporters File ‘Formal Complaint’ Against Biden After Aides Shout Them out of Oval Office

The White House press pool has filed a formal complaint against President Joe Biden after he wouldn’t answer questions about contentious topics while he met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the Oval Office on Sept. 21.

During the meeting, Biden and Johnson discussed trade, the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S.–UK–Australia nuclear submarine deal that angered the French government, and several other topics. Johnson took a few questions and was finishing his response to a reporter’s inquiry when White House staffers told reporters to leave the room, cutting the prime minister off, video footage of the incident shows.

Before the interruption, Johnson said, “Would it be OK if we had a couple of questions? Just a couple?” Biden then responded: “Good luck.”

As aides shouted and media members left the room, Biden, who was wearing a mask, sat in his chair for several seconds before making a motion with his hand. Johnson, who was also wearing a mask, rapidly scanned the room amid the yelling.

“That’s absurd,” one reporter said as they left. “Two British reporters get questions, and we don’t get anything.”

White House pool reporter Steven Portnoy said the press pool has filed a formal complaint with press secretary Jen Psaki.

“The entire editorial component of the U.S. pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office, and that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the southern border,” Portnoy, the head of the White House Correspondents’ Association, wrote. “Biden’s answer could not be heard over the shouting.

“Psaki was unaware that the incident had occurred, and suggested that she was not in position to offer an immediate solution. Your pooler requested a press conference. Psaki suggested the president takes questions several times a week.”

Ed O’Keefe of CBS News said he couldn’t hear Biden’s answer to his question about the U.S.–Mexico border crisis, due to White House aides shouting them down along with Biden’s muffled response due to his mask. White House aides also appeared to cut off Johnson’s response by shouting and telling everyone to leave the Oval Office, he said.

The White House press office didn’t respond to a request for comment by press time.

White House Reporters File Formal Complaint Against Biden – RedState

We reported last night on the bedlam that erupted while Joe Biden was meeting with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Johnson took three questions from the press. As Johnson was finishing his remarks, the Biden staff literally cut him off mid-sentence as they began shouting at the press to get out of the room in an amazing display.

Now, it could have been because Joe looked like he was about to nod off. But they’ve also just been cutting off the press and rushing them out of the room so he can’t answer any questions as a regular thing to protect him from gaffing. Amazingly, CBS’s Ed O’Keefe did get in a question about the border and because of the shouting, he couldn’t hear what was said. But he said he listened to it later. He claimed Biden said, “Violence is not justified.”

Now comes the word that the White House press pool was furious with how they were treated and immediately marched into White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s office and lodged a formal complaint, according to White House Correspondents’ Association President Steven Portnoy.

From Daily Wire:

“The entire editorial component of the U.S. pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office, and that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the Southern Border,” the statement said. “Biden’s answer could not be heard over the shouting.”

“Psaki was unaware that the incident had occurred, and suggested that she was not in a position to offer an immediate solution,” the statement continued.

Portnoy requested that Biden hold a formal press conference as a makeup for continuing to ignore reporters’ questions, which is a common occurrence from Biden, and Psaki responded by claiming that Biden “takes questions several times a week.”

What did they expect was going to happen? This was the same guy who blew them off completely during the campaign and hid in his basement. Biden has blown them off for days, since last week without answering any real question.

The reporters never really appreciated how good they had it with President Donald Trump who was always answering their questions. This guy hasn’t answered questions in days, even hiding out at the beach, while there are major disasters and scandals blowing up all around him.

Psaki’s response is indicative of the disdain the Biden people feel for the reporters — basically, a “We can treat them like dirt and they will take it, coming back for more” attitude. They know the reporters basically politically support them, so they don’t fear any repercussions about their actions.

What a thought. Maybe actually do your job and hold Biden to account. Report on the constant gaffes, incoherence, and incompetence. Don’t be treated like dirt and stand for it. Ask why the Biden folks are doing this and what they don’t want you to see.

White House reporters say snubbed on questions after Biden-Johnson presser, file complaint

Members of the White House press pool have lodged a complaint over not being called upon to ask questions at the conclusion of a President Biden-British Prime Minister Boris Johnson press conference Tuesday, while British reporters got to ask two questions. 

White House Correspondents’ Association President Steve Portnoy, who served as the radio pooler for the Oval Office event, said the editorial component of the pool lodged a formal complaint with White House press secretary Jen Psaki, according to The Hill newspaper.  

Johnson granted questions to two British reporters before White House aides reportedly ushered out reporters.

In response to a shouted question about problems at the U.S. southern border, Biden responded in part that “violence is not justified,” but the remainder of his comments were indecipherable, The Hill also reports.

Reporters ponder why Haitians are treated differently than other migrants – HotAir

The Department of Homeland Security under the Biden administration is seriously stepping up its efforts to clear more than 15,000 Haitian illegal immigrants out of the area around Del Rio, Texas. As we’ve discussed here previously, this is one of the most intense and concentrated efforts at clearing out a specific group of migrants that’s been seen in a very long time indeed. Nearly all of them are missing out on the opportunities afforded to illegal aliens from other countries who have vastly expanded the Biden border crisis, frequently being allowed to simply cross the border, talk to the Border Patrol and be released into the country’s interior. This treatment of the Haitians seems to be raising questions for at least some of the reporters covering the story. What is it about this particular group that makes them so unwelcome in the eyes of the Biden administration? The Associated Press looks at some of the most recent news this week and reviews the options.

More than 6,000 Haitians and other migrants had been removed from an encampment at Del Rio, Texas, U.S. officials said Monday as they defended a strong response that included immediately expelling migrants to their impoverished Caribbean country and faced criticism for using horse patrols to stop them from entering the town.

That was enough for some Haitian migrants to return to Mexico, while others struggled to decide on which side of the border to take their chances.

Marie Pierre, 43, stood on the Mexican side of the river as night fell with hundreds of other migrants unsure what to do. She said Border Patrol agents had separated her from her 19-year-old son in Texas and she didn’t know if he had been deported or not. She waited for a chance to charge her phone, hoping to get news from her sister and cousin in Florida.

Thus far, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has only gone so far as to call this a “challenging and heartbreaking situation.” But he immediately followed that up with a warning, telling the people of Haiti that if they come here illegally they will be returned.

Don’t get me wrong here. I’m not suddenly opposed to our borders being secured or our immigration laws being enforced. But doesn’t this just seem out of character for Joe Biden and his team? From the moment he was sworn into office, it seemed as if Biden had never met an illegal alien he didn’t like. He issued a moratorium on deportations and loosened all of the procedures for processing the people swarming over the border at his invitation. And yet now we see what appears to be the cavalry chasing Haitians back across the river and reportedly beating them with whips and lassos.

Even the ones who elect to stay on the Mexican side of the border are being treated as unwelcome guests. Mexico announced that they are also flying Haitian migrants back to their home country, generally without the chance to request asylum. If your argument in favor of compassion for illegal aliens from Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries is that conditions are too terrible in Honduras and Guatemala for these people to bear, it’s pretty tough to deny that the same can be said about Haiti. Between the earthquakes, the pandemic and their own corrupt government, it really does seem to be one of those countries that the previous president would have described with an expletive.

I’ve yet to see anyone put this question directly to Jen Psaki, though perhaps it happened and I missed it. It’s more time-consuming and expensive to deport Haitians to their own country than it is to simply drop people off across the border in Mexico. We can’t be doing this as a cost-saving measure. It just doesn’t make any sense.

Speaking of the “cost” of handling the Haitian migrants, not all of the expenses are measured in dollars and cents. Biden’s team has brought in so many extra border security personnel to tackle this challenge at Del Rio that large stretches of the rest of the border are now virtually unguarded. And the coyotes have noticed. (Free Beacon)

The Department of Homeland Security’s plan to send hundreds of Border Patrol agents to Del Rio, Texas, is leaving large swaths of the U.S.-Mexico border wide open, according to interviews with officials from both agencies.

In response to the surge of mostly Haitian nationals swarming the southern border, DHS committed to moving “400 [Customs and Border Protection] agents and officers” to the Del Rio sector in order to accelerate processing and deportations. DHS will not disclose where those extra agents are coming from, although one Border Patrol agent who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon said DHS requested 30 agents from his outpost in the southwest to be transferred to Del Rio. The plan threatens to exacerbate the existing border crisis in other parts of the country.

“We’re already so stretched thin,” the individual, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said. “This puts so much more strain on our normal border patrol work.”

So we’re focusing so much manpower on Del Rio that illegal aliens are streaming in from Mexico along the rest of the border? We’re plugging one hole while opening up a path for thousands of others to simply walk across and disappear. Will this same level of effort in capturing them and sending them directly home be expended for these latest intruders? Somehow that seems very unlikely. There’s more to this story than we’re being told.

Either way, when it comes to our immigration and border policies, we reach the same conclusion yet again. Heck of a job, Joe.

13-Minute News Hour with Bobby Eberle – Clueless? Biden Heads to the Beach, Ignores Reporters 9/20/21


Joe Biden headed to the beach over the weekend as multiple problems continue to grow for his administration. Biden took a bike ride, and once again, ignored reporters who were asking about questions. The White House also canceled Friday’s White House press briefing with Jen Psaki.

The French have recalled their ambassador to the U.S. Biden’s military admitted it killed civilians including children in their attempt to hit ISIS-K members. Biden was also rebuked by the FDA over his covid vaccine boost plan.

That’s not all. There’s also Mark Milley’s phone call, the surge at the border, the problems with the Taliban, and the collapse of Biden domestic policy agenda.

Joe Biden is Avoiding the Media Again and Reporters Are Starting to Notice – RedState

President Joe Biden’s most recent press conference was last Thursday, and while that was only a few days ago, a heckuva a lot has happened since then, like the massive southern border surge we saw in videos last week, CENTCOM’s acknowledgment that a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan killed 10 innocent civilians including seven children, and the hostage situation in Mazar-i-Sharif.

As Biden himself once infamously said on a hot mic during his time as President Obama’s veep, issues like these are a “big f***in’” deal, and the American people deserve to hear directly from the President himself on them rather than his handlers.

But as per the norm that’s not happening, and mainstream media journalists are beginning to notice it and call him out for it. For instance, during today’s press briefing, Fox Business White House correspondent Edward Lawrence asked press secretary Jen Psaki when they’d get to question Biden directly again. Her short response to him was to essentially tell him that he and his media colleagues should be happy they got what they did out of him last week:

Needless to say, that’s not a good look.

Both Bloomberg News senior reporter Jennifer Jacobs and CBS News reporter Kathryn Watson also noted in photo tweets that Biden didn’t take questions when he returned to the White House earlier today (shortly before lunch?) after spending a few days on vacation at Rehoboth Beach nor when he left for a trip to New York City:

“The Hill” media reporter/columnist Joe Concha made the rather obvious point about how there have been “a few things” that “have happened since” Biden held his last presser, with the clear insinuation being that he needs to step to the mic again to face the press:

Considering the bizarre answers Psaki gave during today’s press briefing on some of the pressing issues we need answers from Biden on, it probably would have been better if we’d heard directly from him than her.

Then again, considering his penchant for embarrassing flubs, gaffes, bad “jokes,” embellishing stories, and sometimes forgetting important details, maybe it’s best we didn’t.
