On Friday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki snapped at a reporter after being asked whether President Joe Biden would decide if the U.S. will participate in the Olympics given that the president had just weighed in on political issues in Georgia and said that he would “strongly support” Major League Baseball essentially boycotting holding the All-Star Game and Draft in the state.

The reporter said. “The President had voiced his support for MLB making a decision about the All-Star Game in Georgia, I’m wondering, when can we expect a final determination from the President about the United States participating in the Beijing Olympics, given that he said the Chinese President doesn’t have a democratic bone in his body?.”

“Well, I think the U.S. Olympic Committee would play a big role in—” Psaki deflected.

“But he’s weighed in on Major League Baseball here in United States,” the reporter added.
“He actually didn’t,” Psaki claimed. “I think, I don’t know if you heard the answer, the question and the answer that happened a few minutes ago where we addressed this, and I answered the question. And I gave you a little more context, but maybe you weren’t paying attention to that part.”

Biden weighed in on Major League Baseball, responding to a question from ESPN this week on whether he would support the league moving the All-Star Game and Draft out of the state of Georgia.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden said. “I would strongly support them doing that.”

Psaki’s response drew condemnation from critics.

“This is an absolutely fair question, and Psaki dodging the question by attacking [the reporter] is the exact kind of nonsense that people went after Trump’s press secretaries for,” one commentator wrote online. “Biden willingly went down this rabbit hole with MLB, so the Olympics being in China is a fair question.”

“Jen Psaki’s refusal to answer tells us all we need to know about this White House’s priorities,” another commented.

TRANSCRIPT:

REPORTER: Thank you. I’ll follow up. And then, you know, the President had voiced his support for MLB making a decision about the All-Star Game in Georgia. I’m wondering, when can we expect a final determination from the President about the United States participating in the Beijing Olympics, given that he said the Chinese President doesn’t have a democratic bone in his body?

JEN PSAKI, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Well, I think the U.S. Olympic Committee would play a big role in —

PSAKI: But he’s weighed in on Major League Baseball here in United States.
PSAKI: He actually didn’t — I think — I don’t know if you heard the — the answer — the question and the answer that happened a few minutes ago where we addressed this, and I answered the question. So — and I gave you a little more context, but maybe you weren’t paying attention to that part.

    When you listen to any Democratic Party responses remember these truisms;

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

    “If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.”

    “A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”

    “The English follow the principle that when one lies, it should be a big lie, and one should stick to it.”

    “Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.”

    “There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the stronger, and this will always be “the man in the street.” Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology. …the rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious.”

    “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

    Joseph Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany

    It should be obvious to anyone with an IQ higher than a cabbage Democrats ALWAYS will and already have accused the other side of what they are guilty of.
