  1. Wait… a press secretary that seems nice and treats people with respect? And doesn’t lie with every breath? Is that even possible?!?

    • @Vick100 Why are you here then if your not being a problem? You’re wasting your time trying to overcome the TRUTH with your LIES!

    • @Tim Smith your words tell me clearly who is your leader . 🤣🤣

    • @Vick100 Why are you so against us? Didn’t daddy biden teach you to be unified ? Step up and join us in being Real Americans together !

    • @Tim Smith 😂😂😂😂
      Apparently, you only watch conservative “news” outlets.

    • @Howard G I can’t stand any news outlets! Never watch them! I just rely on people’s attitudes and I’ve never witnessed such a divisive attitude between both parties!

    Jen Psaki: *holds first press conference*
    Journalists: *Break down in tears*
    Jen Psaki: Did I do something wrong?
    Journalists: no..*sniff*..it’s just so nice you’re not screaming about crowd sizes, bleach, and all the other nonsense of the last 4 years.

  3. Holy Cow – a rational human being!!!

  4. I really like her! McEnany was so bitchy and had this “smell” of dishonesty. Jen Psaki give a completely different, honest, and competent impression.

  5. This girl is brilliant she is going to make a great press secretary ! Looking forward to the next four years

    • Imagine an administration with just 1 press secretary during the entire 4 years.

    • Maybe. She deflected the question of whether Biden feels Trump committed impeachable offences. Several times. I thought that was disappointing.

    • What a breath of fresh air. Thank God them ignorant people are gone.

    • @Tony B That’s recognition that the current president has no role (and should have no role) in the process of convicting the former president. It’s the same thing with normal criminal proceedings, a president may feel that a certain person is guilty of a certain crime and should be punished for it. However, a president should not comment on such things, because it can influence the proceedings, or may seem to do so, which undermines the justice system.

    • @Tony B Biden’s feelings or opinions about Trump are not of any interest or consequence. The press needs to ask the right questions. I find it especially positive, that she did not engage on that. The message is how to improve the country, not petty interpersonal issues. That era ended yesterday. Thank god.

  6. I love this press secretary. She’s single-handedly raised my trust in government, and shown hope that this new administration is on the right track for our country.

  7. I LOVE THE LACK OF EYE LASHES! and nails! and stupid High heels.

  8. A White House Press Secretary who is a real person with real intelligence that is very refreshing after 4 chaotic messy trump years

  9. WoW a person who actually knows what she’s talking about!

      @In the making “reliable news sources” equals “news you want to hear”.

    • Dorientje Woller | January 21, 2021 at 12:41 PM | Reply

      @In the making ..!.. You know what that means.

    • @Godflesh88 ver2.0 Reliable: Consistently good in quality or performance, able to be trusted.

      Words with similar meaning. Dependable, good, genuine, true, unwavering.

      Would you use unreliable news sources? I would hope not. Formal logic, kid.

      A HUGE improvement BUT Jen Psaki MUST brush up on her public speaking. She fills every pause with a very annoying ‘Ahhh’. She did it DOZENS of times in her first official press conference!

    • @say what? I figured they were referring to him being out and Biden being in. So it seemed his name as a liar was already a given.

  10. It is nice to hear this press secretary not deflecting, lying and being rude when a news reporter ask her a question.

    • @Omega Riddler – Yeah she did deflect. The answer should be that it does not matter what Biden thinks. It is the Senate that decides whether Trump is guilty or not.

    • She did a little when asked about bidens opinion on impeachment but I think that’s reasonable. The image he wants to project isn’t about political rivalry which right now is toxic. Thats fair

    • Bryon Popplewell | January 21, 2021 at 1:01 PM | Reply

      @theKillingJokes Yeah she didn’t answer that one. But I think it’s more that her job isn’t about the Presidents personal opinions, it’s about his policies and decision making. So she’s keeping it professional and avoiding the bait.

    • @theKillingJokes That one is very delicate, so unless Biden has explicitly conveyed an actual opinion on that to her, it’s not her place to speak much of. It’s really not Joe Biden’s place to speak much of either, even less as POTUS. The senate trial of an impeached President is supposed to be an as solemn, serious thing there is. President Joe Biden publicly weighing in on how he thinks the senate should proceed, expedite, prioritize or vote, is ethically and morally off limits. *Especially now,* that his party has (although razor slim) a majority that enables it to actually decide how they want the trial to be run. Here, his voice and opinions on the matter, will have sway he should not exercise on this subject until the trial is concluded, unless his Admin should uncover information relevant to the trial.

      Biden understands the ethics and morals of influence from POTUS, in regards to impeachment. Especially when the Senate majority is of the President’s party. Jo Biden was a senator himself when Bill Clinton was impeached. He knows the influence a POTUS can have on that, and he knows by both personal and extended experience, what not to do.

    • She deflected the “impeached” question.

  11. I can’t believe how much trauma we experienced. I feel like this isn’t real.

    • It was like when you are in an abusive marriage, you don’t fully breath until you leave. And then for some of us, not for along time. But you get better 👍

    • @Jose Milian anyone remember when Trump said he didn’t think he would win the primary. & then he did. Then when he won he told the politicians if they would’ve been doing their job in the first place he would’ve never been elected.

      So it’s fair to say the power brokers in DC are to blame. Pelosi McConnel Schumer & the like.

    • In all honest I don’t agree with you on “we” experienced. I didn’t allow myself to be influenced by the #orangehitler and is cult, or the media. So, if you feel as if this isn’t real, I think you really need to seek out to mental health for your situation. Good luck buddy.

    • @Zylok you tag me then make a question to anyone. not sure if your asking me or if your just making a jump from what I said. But if your asking me I don’t remember anything of the sort didn’t go out of my way to see what he was up to since I didn’t think he would be making it to the white house. Was very surprised He was elected.

    • @Jose Milian I was just trying to make a point. This Trump problem was brought down upon us by the lifer politicians

  12. The gold standard is JFK holding press conferences.

    “Alignment on tone” is what’s been missing for so long. I wish her luck. This is a tough job but she seems equal to the task. It’s good to hear they understand they work for the American people, not the other way around.

  14. “If i see you treating anybody with disrespect i will fire you on the spot”- Joe Biden

    Holy crap. Is this real life?


    • Trump would hand them a raise.

    • Mary Sue Echols | January 21, 2021 at 12:52 PM | Reply

      @Dana Eckel 💯🎯

    • My opinion; president Obama wouldn’t have selected Joe Biden to be his V.P. if, among other qualifications, he wasn’t a decent man . It certainly makes good sense for him to expect those who work for him to be respectful to others. Trump loved turning people against each other.


  16. Totally different President too. Letting the branches do their jobs without him pushing or commenting on it. So refreshing

    • @Chad Simmons and have you looked up the statistics on a rupture or leak? When you’re dealing with that much pipeline it’s going to happen. It’s a statistical impossibility for it not to happen. Is statistically likely to happen multiple times. Have you looked up how much oil would be spilled from said leak? Looked up what happens if that leak is over a waterway or watershed?

    • @nick d So you don’t trust any piping you can’t see? Should be delete all underground water, gas, sewer, electric lines near your residence, for (our) safer environment?

    • @Chad Simmons we don’t run that piping through the places they want to run that pipeline. And since I’ve had underground piping I can’t see bust yes I don’t trust it to not break.

    • @nick d please let me say that oil transportation, trucks, trains ships, are causing way more climate change than pumping it (safely) below ground

    • @Chad Simmons run pipes. Just not though areas that if they bust they’re going to cause an environmental catastrophe.

  17. This is what a press secretary should be like !!!

    She makes sense, unlike Kayleigh who wasn’t McEnany sense.

  19. so this is how a Press Secretary sounds like

  20. A press secretary interview that didn’t ended trying to humiliating somebody or walking in circles.
    What sorcery is this??
