Comedian Jen Psaki lays down her best set EVER, whacking Covid for ruining Joe’s week


Comedian and “press secretary” Jen Psaki’s list of hits is indisputably extensive and impressive. Her euphemisms for failure and excuses for disaster are, frankly, the stuff of comedy legends. But this quick clip of the comic genius talking about Biden’s abysmal, record-low and still plummeting approval numbers is honestly my favorite. It’s the understated delivery that kicks it up that one extra notch.

You’ll note the subdued tone, the tail-between-the-legs, dog ate my homework demeanor of course. And the sad self-incriminating “including us” punchline? Truly a magnificent and inspired performance.

"I would say that this is a really tough time in our country," Psaki responded. "We’re still battling COVID, and a lot of people thought we’d be through it, including us."

"And because of the rise of the Delta variant, because of the fact that, even though it was a vaccine that was approved under a Republican administration, even though we now have full FDA approval, and even though it’s widely available across the country, we still have … 20% of the country who've decided not to get vaccinated," she added.

"No question that’s having an impact," Psaki said, before concluding, "And of course, as the president has said, the buck stops with him."

In addition to the poor polls, September’s abysmal jobs report saw only 194,000 jobs added to the economy, sharply missing the 500,000 estimate economists gave.

President Biden addressed the report Friday and defended his record on the economy as "progress" as his approval rating teeters at 38%.

"In total, the job creation in the first eight months of my administration is nearly five million jobs," Biden said. "Jobs up, wages up, unemployment down. That's progress."
