Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lashed out at former President Donald Trump as she went to work this week on President Joe Biden’s “very different case” involving classified documents (You can check out Psaki’s comments in the clip below).
Psaki, who served as Biden’s press secretary from his inauguration until mid-May 2022, told Jonathan Lemire that Biden’s political problem regarding the case “has not been resolved” in comments on “Morning Joe.” She also ripped “outlier” and “loser” Trump.
The comments came during a week of several reports of secret document discoveries involving Biden. The discoveries prompted Attorney General Merrick Garland earlier this week to appoint special counsel to investigate the case.
The president’s case, in terms of what is generally known so far, appears to differ from that of Trump and his mishandling of classified materials, The The Bharat Express News noted.
Psaki said that in last year’s midterm elections, Democrats were able to quell the expected red wave as they are “defenders of democracy”. She said she believed Democrats would continue to follow that message before closing Trump’s case with classified documents.
“The Mar-a-Lago documents — well, horrifying as it is, the way Trump is handling them — it’s not clear I haven’t seen any data suggesting that’s the driving problem that Republicans and independents are driving away from him. chased away.” said Psaki.
Psaki continued, “They walked away from him because he is an outlier, some of them, in rejecting elections and also because he is a loser. Right?”
The former press secretary later said she doesn’t think Biden’s case of classified documents raises a political problem for him.
“So this argument that this very different case of Biden’s secret documents is going to be a political issue for him has not even played out on the other side,” Psaki said. And I think that’s important to note because the difference, as you said, is who’s defending democracy. And the answer to that is pretty obvious.”
