Jen Psaki and the Biden administration are facing sinking poll numbers.
Democrats believe their only choice is to go on offense.
And Jen Psaki picked this fight with Laura Ingraham that she instantly regretted.
Jen Psaki picked up on the corporate media smears against Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Brian Kilmeade for texting Mark Meadows during the January 6 melee at the Capitol and pushing him to urge Donald Trump to make a public statement condemning the violence.
Corporate media outlets like CNN and the Washington Post lied about the Fox hosts, claiming they condemned the violence in private while going on the air and telling viewers it was no big deal.
Jen Psaki was one of the Democrats who amplified this corporate media-generated misinformation.
“It is disappointing and not surprising, the same individuals willing to warn, condemn, and express horror over what happened on January 6th, in private, were totally silent in public or even worse, were spreading lies and conspiracy theories and continue to since that time. Disappointing, not surprising, unfortunately we have seen a trend from the same individuals,” Psaki falsely claimed during a White House press briefing.
That night, Laura Ingraham set Pskai and the rest of the liars at CNN and the Washington Post straight in a searing monologue during her Fox News show.
Ingraham noted that her text message to Mark Meadows condemning the violence and asking Trump to make a statement was no different than what she said at the time in a series of public tweets.
“Security breach at the Capitol is disgraceful and the President needs to tell everyone to leave the building now. 2:44 P.M. Anyone who thinks this is gonna help the MAGA movement is delusional. It hurts the movement, the Trump legacy and of course the country,” Ingraham read on the air from a tweet posted the afternoon of January 6.
“The president should order [National Guard] to secure the Capitol immediately,” Ingraham read from another tweet during the melee.
“When there’s any big crowd there will invariably be bad actors, but blame will be laid at the feet of the White House if the Capitol is not cleared quickly,” Ingraham also wrote at the time.
Democrats and the corporate media seized on the events of January 6 to attack all of their political enemies.
That list of targets expanded far beyond Donald Trump.
Apparently, Fox News was also on the list of political opponents the left hoped it could exploit the events of January 6 to silence.
