White House Communications Director, Jen Psaki, stepped forward in the unfolding controversy over the Iran deal deception by the Obama administration.
Following a New York Times interview with Obama’s foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes, in which he practically boasted about the false information fed to the media on the deal struck with Iran, the White House was unable to deny the claims.
Psaki, who previously served as a spokesperson for the State Department, weighed in on the attacks on Rhodes.
Since when is having a coordinated message, being responsive with facts and effectively using social media offensive? #BenRhodes

Social media users saw through the spin in Psaki’s post, however.

When you lie your collective asses off repeatedly. Then, it becomes propaganda, BS, obama-speak!

How does someone THIS DAMN STUPID become the Director of Comms for the most powerful office in the world? Dirt is more thoughtful. @Psaki44

@Psaki44 I think you are confusing facts with lies, Democrats and liberals often have that problem.
