News rag owned by right wing propagandists poses "concern" when propaganda bait questions are rejected by a competent press secretary.

The NYPOST needs to be shuttered and not linked to anymore and Rupert Murdoch needs to be given the Mussolini finish he has always deserved.

You keep on keeping on Ms.Psaki.

They are not to be taken seriously.

I'm trying to expel racist thought.

That's the opposite of what should be done.

All that said, Biden's history with the Drug War has definitely contributed to the continuing systemic racism in the US.

I found the transcript from the White House website. Whoever was asking these loaded questions definitely had some partisan intention (it was probably Steve Doocy's dumbass son).

Q    Thank you, Jen.  I have a quicker - quick follow-up question on something you were asked yesterday, and then a second somewhat-related question. 

MS. PSAKI:  Okay. 

Q    Regarding yesterday, I - respectfully, I feel like you didn't give quite a firm answer, and I wanted to try again. 

MS. PSAKI:  Okay.

Q    You were asked whether President Biden will honor his Democratic primary campaign pledge to release, quote, "everyone" in prison for marijuana.  People are skeptical that he will.  President Biden is personally responsible for sending some people to prison for life for marijuana under his 1994 crime bill.  And Vice President Kamala Harris oversaw 1,900 marijuana convictions as San Francisco District Attorney.  So, will President Bonnor [sic] - will President Biden honor his commitment to release everyone imprisoned for marijuana?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, I think what I did yesterday is reiterate what his position on marijuana was: decriminalizing, rescheduling, and certainly legalizing medical marijuana.

What you're asking me is a legal question.  And now we're in government, and so I had to follow up with our legal team, and I don't have any additional information quite yet.

Q    So regarding rescheduling, that wouldn't necessarily release anyone from prison.  Schedule II is - has fentanyl and cocaine.  You can't just -

MS. PSAKI:  That's right.  It addresses things moving forward though, which is important and important to many advocates.

Q    So should people in prison for marijuana who are asking President Biden to honor his pledge to release them - should they expect to be released or are they going to serve life in prison for marijuana?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, again, I think I've stated very clearly what the President's position is.  What you're asking me is a legal question.  I'd point you to the Department of Justice.  And if there's anything more we can provide from here, I'm happy to provide it.

Q   My second question: President Biden, yesterday, responding to George - the George Flord [sic]- Floyd case verdict, said that George Floyd's death, quote, "ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism" in the United States.  But he is an architect of multiple federal laws in the 1980s and '90s that disproportionately jailed Black people and contributed to what many people see as systemic racism.

The activist Cornel West said that Biden is, quote, one of the "core architects" of mass incarceration, and that, quote, "I think that Biden is going to have to take responsibility and to acknowledge the contribution" he made to mass incarceration. 

To what extent does President Biden acknowledge his own role in systemic racism, and how does that inform his current policy positions?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, I would say that the President is - one of the President's core objectives is addressing racial injustice in this country not just through his rhetoric, but through his actions.  And what anyone should look to is his advocacy for passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, for nominating leaders to the Department of Justice to address long-outdated policies, and to ask his team - leadership team here in the White House to prioritize these issues in his presidency, which is current and today and not from 30 years ago.

Q    Does he believe it's important to accept his own culpability in setting up a system -

MS. PSAKI:  I think I've answered your question.

Meh. Personally, I would like to see Biden own up to his own role in racist drug policies of the past. Being able to admit he was wrong would make him better than the Republicans, who can never admit mistakes.

durbnpoisn: The NYPost is the Fox News of newspapers.  They are a tabloid.  They are right wing propaganda.

They are not to be taken seriously.


And yet the question was reasonable and non-feckless people would like Biden to acknowledge the damage his earlier legislation did.  He doesn't have to accept 100% of the responsibility. Law making doesn't work like that. But he's trying to undo problems that he helped create.

was around when they weren't addressed back in the 90s.

Seriously.  Listen to yourself.

Joe was not around in the Senate when reconstruction was halted.  Joe wasn't around when Jim Crow laws weren't overturned by the federal government.  Joe wasn't around for all the failures to enforce civil rights legislation.

All he was around for was not fixing the problem when the federal government started giving a shiat about the overall situation in the 90s.  First shot at "making it better" ended up making it worse.  The Democrats collectively have figured that out, and are trying to move the needle towards better.

Basically you are asking him to take responsibility for the country farking up racial equality forever because he was involved in failing to fix it once.

Sorry, but that's bit much to ask.

Moreover than that (to continue), Psaki said, very clearly, to look at his words and his actions TODAY and not 30 years ago.

She is essentially saying that he IS taking responsibility for his part, and he is taking positive action to correct those mistakes.

And I agree with her completely.  What this reporter is doing is trying to get Biden to admit to something terrible.  And that will the be the headline!  It's a trap.  And Psaki very carefully avoided it.
 
2021-04-22 8:57:07 PM  
She should tell them to go ask Trump what he thinks, since he's the only politician they consider credible.
 
2021-04-22 9:24:39 PM  
Why has Biden not stopped beating his wife?
 
2021-04-22 9:27:53 PM  
Yeah, fark the NY Post. DNRTFA.

Psaki's response was appropriate. All those jokers want is some dirty laundry to hang in their rag to generate clicks.
