The press coverage of the Biden White House has been borderline comical.
Gone are the days of intense, often illogical, lines of questioning Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany used to receive.
And now, you will not believe what this “news correspondent” asked Jen Psaki at a White House briefing.
There is no doubt the Democrat-controlled press has been treating every member of the Biden administration in a delicate and almost childlike way.
They’re often tossed, underhand, softball-type questions, but none as mind boggling as what Yahoo News correspondent Brittany Shepherd asked Jen Psaki recently.
During a White House press briefing, Shepherd asked Psaki for an update on whether or not the Bidens would be getting a cat for the White House.
“Any update on the White House cat?” Shepherd asked.
Shepherd went on to say, “Is that something that’s still happening here? Our readers are asking us a lot.”
There is a raging border crisis, inflation that hasn’t been seen since the George H.W. Bush-era, record crime rates, and racial tension that is getting worse by the hour.
And this supposed White House “reporter” wants to know about a cat.
Let’s not forget that China and Russia are both growing even more aggressive since Biden took office.
But no, the question that keeps most Yahoo News readers up at night is whether or not the Bidens will get a cat for the White House.
Of course, Psaki welcomed the ridiculous question with open arms.
“I’ve been joking, although maybe it might be true, that we’re waiting for a bad news day for that to come out. If you see a tail wagging coming out of the briefing room, you’ll know something bad is about to happen. I don’t have any update on the cat,” Psaki responded.
Waiting for a bad news day?
Really? Have there been absolutely any bad news days since Biden took office?
Most Americans would likely disagree with Psaki.
This simple exchange sums up the glaring difference between how the press treated the Trump administration and how the Biden administration gets delicately tossed softballs from the press.
Members of the press corps are not even trying to hide their loyalty to this current administration anymore.
