Biden White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki held a press briefing tonight and didn’t lie about crowd size even once – in a reminder of just how low the bar has been set over the past four years. For that matter, the mere fact that Psaki held a briefing at all is a major upgrade over where the previous regime left things.
All things considered, Psaki’s briefing stood out in terms of how much it fit right in. This was the kind of White House press briefing we had always been accustomed to, before the previous regime threw away the blueprint.
Psaki gave detailed and knowledgeable answers. She didn’t appear to tell a single lie or make a single misleading statement. She even called on news outlets whom she knew, based on their dispositions, were likely to ask her crappy questions – and she fielded those questions professionally.
