Maybe if I dig this hole just a little bit deeper, it will be okay.

I love the look in the young lady's eyes as she listens to the answer.

"Look, lady, I got my script, and I'm not going to get paid today if I don't do this, so can I just ask this damn question?"

Which people?

That's how you recognize the shills at the press events. They always start their questions like that even though Psaki has crushed them repeatedly when they do it.
 
2022-01-27 6:05:03 AM  
No subflake, what Psaki just did was demonstrate that if you're going to try to challenge smart people, you should do your homework first.

Who are these morons masquerading as journalists? Are they just letting the conspiracy nuts laminate their own "press" badges?

fark off you idiots. You understand nothing, and you're a waste of air in that room, or indeed, ANY room.

Wow that "many people are saying" card sure is wearing out around the edges isn't it?  Getting real hard out there for bad-faith liars to make a manufactured point with it.
 
2022-01-27 6:14:26 AM  
I saw a government official using the bully pulpit to attack and humiliate a young woman who was just asking questions

I am a crossover voter in a crucial swing state who was considering voting for progressive Democrats, but this incivility has convinced me to vote straight ticket GOP yet again

Study it out

Some People. There are also reports that Other People are corroborating the fact that Some People are saying. I guess its pretty serious.

Watching Psaki spank a female reporter is ummmmm interesting. Yea let's go with that.

It's one of those phrases that signals you need not take anything else that person says seriously.

See also: "let the free market decide," "America is a Christian nation," "job killing regulations," etc.
 
2022-01-27 6:42:39 AM  
It's pretty rude that Jen didn't even let the reporter tell her who has the concerns, and instead just steamrolled over a female reporter. Just another example off the dissing this white house has for respected journalism

Trump made "Many people are saying. . ." and similar vague phrases for unattributed BS work for him like a blind mule in unchallenged monologues, but only because of his skill at faking sincerity when telling lies and unearned bloated gravitas. And because his followers are Facebook-fed and a generation that lapped up similar FW:FW:FW confirmation bias- encrusted emails.

When you use it in a dialogue with intelligent people like you don't even believe it, "Many people are saying?? (I guess?. . )" , you sound ridiculous even to faux swing voters like Parthenogenetic and deserve to get steamrolled.

Unless Parthenogenetic was making a funny. Parody is dead :(

Also Psaki is a national treasure, the best press secretary in a long time. If you come at her, you best come correct or you will limp home.

I'll say it again, they can only emote two ways: gloating or whining.

The fark was the reporter going to say? "Well, Tucker Carlson said. . ." or "my collegues at OAN" some other semi-articulate idiots? She used a vague phrase on purpose.

Keep trying snowshovel-- aspire to be one of those semi-articulate idiots. We're rooting for ya!

Yes she should have. At least its an answer. Not a good answer. But without it it sounded like "The voices in my head say"..
By now every white house reporter should expect the premise of any question to come under scrutiny and be prepared.

Actually I was thinking of that sick burn on Ryan Reynolds' quick trigger from Anna Faris  in "Waiting. . .", the little engine that couldn't hold it's load, but surprisingly no one has photoshopped that.

She won't hurt you if she thinks you're dead!
 
2022-01-27 7:31:25 AM  
That's what happens when these Jackholes get away with asking questions/pushing lies for too long.  "People are saying" questions should always be asked back "who is saying?"

Next time, I hope she just lets them sit there and when they don't answer, move on.

Hello and welcome back from your coma.
In the decades you were asleep things have changed.

You might want to watch a few hours of FOX "News" or OAN before you try to separate parody from truth these days. It's not your fault. It's as dumb as it seems.

I have it blocked.

snowblower is either attempting parody and failing or too stupid to reason with.
I can't tell which.

A seat in the white house briefing room should mean something.

And if your job is to ask stupid scripted questions like that, you shouldn't be there.

Of course by that token the AP reporters were breathless about ice cream, so I might just be living in the past.

If almost anyone else said that I'd have laughed.

I worry you believe it though
