White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has had a heck of a week as the Biden administration’s legislative agenda failed in Congress, and its one she concluded by recommending that frustrated Democratic voters take kickboxing classes and drink margaritas and almost accidentally called President Biden “President Obama.”
Well done, Jen.
The eyebrow-raising comments were issued during an appearance by Psaki on “The View” Friday where co-hosts, naturally, fawned over the presidential spokeswoman and lamented the failure of the Democrats’ radical election reform in the Senate.
Psaki’s “advice” for members of the audience who are angry that the legislation failed was to spend the weekend kickboxing, boozing, and “feeling.”
“My advice to everyone out there who’s frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off, feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend, and then wake up on Monday morning; we gotta keep fighting.” Psaki said, as The Daily Wire reported.

She may have already taken her own advice before the show, because, when asked about her future at the White House amid rumors she might be resigning, she issued what could easily be described as a Freudian slip over which president she is serving under.
“A little bird told me that you said you might be retiring, resigning the job this year, say it isn’t so, is it true?” co-host Joy Behar, who had initially introduced Psaki as “lovely and talented,” asked.
Psaki gave a characteristically vague answer about her departure, but did manage to accidentally say the quiet part out loud, as some might say.
“You know, I don’t know when I’m leaving, this is an honor and a privilege and I love working for President Oba…President Biden,” she replied, catching herself quickly before saying “President Biden.”

Now, to be fair, Psaki is an alum of the Obama administration, as is President Joe Biden himself, but this doesn’t exactly lessen conspiracy theories that Biden’s first term is basically just Obama’s third.
Just ask Twitter:
Psaki told Joy Behar that she enjoys working for Obama. The first time she’s told the truth.

Psaki has been working for the Biden administration for a year now, and is the president’s top spokesperson. She refers to “President Biden” all the time, it’s her job to tell the public what he is thinking and doing. Was this really just an innocent gaffe? Too many our-radical-election-reform-bill-failed cocktails? Or the quiet part out loud?
You tell me.
