Now that Jen Psaki is the White House press secretary, I’d like to bring you back… Or should I say “Circle Back” to what she had to say about Joe Biden during the 2020 campaign? Well this redheaded raggedy ann looking conwoman “Psaki” which sounds like something you drink with sushi!
Well she wasn’t all complimentary toward the sniffler, and thief who would become her boss after he stole the election in the worlds biggest con job on this country ever done! But even though she still claimed to retain some affection toward him she did talk bad about him… Let’s not forget his own VeePee thinks he raped a woman, and is ok with it.. So shortly after she was picked as the intermediary between the president and press in November, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson dug up some of her remarks after Biden had made one of the many, many gaffes that pockmarked the early stages of his campaign before the basement phase, started of course.
In October of 2019, Biden was asked a question at a town hall regarding high HIV rates among black Americans. As part of his response, he brought up measures taken to fight HIV in the past, nothing that gay bathhouses were singled out in the early years of the epidemic due to the fact public officials believed promiscuous individuals were spreading the virus through anonymous sex there. (They were, but it’s considered impolitic to say so.) The problem was that Biden didn’t put it quite so coherently during the forum, moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“Remember, Anderson? Back 15 to 20 years, we talked about this, in, in San Francisco was all about well, you know, gay bathhouses,” Biden said. “It’s all about round-the-clock sex. C’mon, man!” Let’s leave aside Biden’s inability to put together the building blocks that comprise coherent thought, which brings to mind nothing so much as 6-month-old grappling with Duplos.
Don’t forget folks Biden is saying this to the openly gay as hell Anderson Cooper. You simply cannot make this up!!! But when it comes to an uncomfortable bit of conversation addressed to a member of a minority group from an out-of-touch person who thinks that they aren’t remember you aint black if you didn’t vote for JOE.

Most in media liked to have either forgotten about this or left it alone not to hurt Biden but it’s also probably because it was roughly the 26th-worst thing Biden said before the interminable debate/town hall season was shut down due to the KungFlu of 2020. At the time, Psaki the final communications director of the Obama White House was a commentator on CNN.
While she laughed at the clip, she didn’t sound like she thought it augured well for Biden’s candidacy. “There have been a number of moments where even those of us who have affection for Vice President Biden think, ‘What on the Earth is happening now?’” Psaki said. “Part of his appeal is that he says things that your uncle says and that people feel comfortable with him, and it’s a return to normalcy,” she added.
Psaki could well have been hedging her employment options for 2021. October of 2019 was when the façade of Biden’s inevitability began to crumble, with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren briefly taking the lead in the Democratic primary race. That said, this doesn’t come across as complimentary in any shape or form.
We’ll circle back to Psaki in a bit, however. Tucker Carlson looked at other members of Team Biden who were similarly scathing during the campaign.
There’s Kamala Harris, now the vice president. We all remember her inflicting the first serious wound to Biden campaign during the opening debate of the election cycle:
Months earlier, she said the women who accused Biden of sexual harassment should be listened to.
“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story, and I encourage them to do it,” she said, after a string of women had gone public with stories about Biden’s behavior.
Mind you she said she thinks he’s not a racist but let’s not forget this folks! Biden DOJ Nominee Helped Prosecute a Black Man Sentenced to 27 Years for Selling $20 Worth of Drugs. The man also called black kids Roaches, and said he didn’t want his kids raised in a “racial jungle” and said that Obama was the “FIRST” black man who spoke well, and was clean. This from the now President? And how people can view him as nothing but a racist is beyond the pale!
Harris was well out of the race for president and clearly within the range of choices for vice president by the time former Senate staffer Tara Reade levied a sexual assault allegation against Biden in April 2020, so we don’t know what her reaction would be then.
In any event, Psaki called Biden daft. Harris implied he could be a racist or guilty of sexual misconduct. Both coalesced around Biden because, well, of course they did — once he became the only option in the Democratic field.
However, what does this say about Biden’s judgment, bringing on people who treated him with contempt throughout 2019? What will Psaki say when Biden inevitably makes a verbal stumble, particularly if this clip is referenced?
Will she say that Biden is popular because he’s like your uncle? Will she openly wonder what on the Earth is happening now? Probably not, but she’ll definitely circle back to us on that.
