Thanks to the incompetence of America’s mainstream press, for weeks White House press secretary Jen Psaki has been answering questions from a fictional White House correspondent who reportedly doesn’t even exist.

According to a stunning report by Politico published Friday, a gamer from Roblox, an online gaming platform that features playable characters that resemble LEGO Minifigures, has been indirectly questioning Psaki by forwarding their questions to actual White House correspondents.

Because of the resemblance between LEGO Minifigures and Roblox characters, Roblox gamers reportedly jokingly refer to themselves as “Legos.”

The way it worked is that Kacey Montagu, the fictional White House correspondent who was in fact a “Lego,” would email questions to actual correspondents and ask if they could pose them to Psaki because her “social distancing regulations” forbade her from attending the briefings herself.

And not surprisingly, the correspondents, who have a history of being unable to differentiate fact from fiction, would then go ahead and ask Psaki the questions.

Never mind that neither her supposed employer, the Daily Mail, nor the White House Correspondents Association have any record of a Kacey Montagu, who also took on the identity of a fictional White House News (WHN) correspondent.

According to Politico, Montagu even had “several exchanges with White House officials.”

She also adopted a presence on social media.

“Montagu’s play-acting as a White House reporter goes back at least to December, when he or she set up @WHschedule on Twitter. They repeatedly referenced the ‘schedule’ account in emails as a primary duty. In March, they began sending tweets from @WHpoolreport,” Politico reported.

“The accounts are rudimentary repostings of two sources of information reporters regularly consume: the president, first lady, vice president, and second gentleman’s daily schedules and the so-called pool reports, which are real time dispatches from a small group of journalists tasked with following around those principals during the course of the day and reporting back to the rest of the press corps on their movements and utterances.”

And once again the press was reportedly fooled.

“The accounts got attention from insiders, who quickly came to rely on their speed and efficiency. @WHSchedule had a following of more than 1,300, including several White House correspondents,” according to Politico.

Included among the followers were even some White House officials like Michael LaRosa, the press secretary for first lady Jill Biden, and Symone Sanders, a senior advisor and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris.

As of Friday the account had been suspended, though Montagu was still active — and talking quite a bit of trash — on another account:

Notice the use of the term “fake news.”

Speaking with Politico through email, the person behind the Montagu personality said that he or she (their gender is unknown) thinks the press has been doing “a pretty bad job at the moment.”

“I love journalism, and I think the Press Corps is doing a pretty bad job at the moment, so I decided I would ensure some transparency and ask some questions me and some friends wanted the answer to,” the unnamed “Lego” reportedly wrote.

One of those questions reportedly read as follows: “Recently the White House has had read outs of calls and has the name of the people saying ‘Senior Administration official,’ so why isn’t the White House releasing the names of people in the calls, making these comments so that they can be held accountable to the American people?”

Not bad …

What the “Lego” may not realize is that Psaki works for a Democrat administration, and because the majority of “journalists” are themselves Democrats, it’s a faux pas to challenge administration officials with genuinely challenging questions.

It’s why whenever Fox News’ Peter Doocy commits the apparent crime of trying to actually hold the administration accountable, he’s mocked, attacked and ridiculed by the press:

Another question, reportedly posed this past Thursday, concerned whether Biden intends to hold “bipartisan portrait unveiling events at the White House.”

In other words, Montagu asked whether the president will hold an event if and when former President Donald Trump gets his portrait.

Watch, and note how the reporter read the question from his phone:

From the sounds of it, the person behind Montagu may be a Trump supporter.

The Montagu personality was originally conceived on Roblox itself.

“Within that platform is a role-playing group called nUSA, where people from across the world engage in a mock U.S. government exercise. At one point, Montagu had adopted the role of Secretary of State but resigned from that job after — as they recalled — ‘the [nUSA] President went to war with some U.K. and I thought it was a pretty bad idea!'” according to Politico.

A Roblox friend of the real Montagu said that if the jig hadn’t been busted by Politico, “she very well could’ve obtained her own day pass and been able to travel to [D.C.] and into the White House” one day.
