The only thing more CRINGE than new White House vax video is asst. press secretary’s clueless response

The Biden administration is pulling out all the stops to promote the White House’s efforts to convince Americans to get vaccinated but a new social media ad isn’t likely to win many hearts and minds.

The ad features a young man who appears to have serious issues when it comes to gender confusion who introduces himself as “Kooper,” a Gen Z White House intern who takes viewers on a tour of the West Wing, stopping briefly to say hi to press secretary “Jenny” Psaki who is also featured in the video.

The video stars comic and social media influencer Benito Skinner who, as Benny Drama, has a following of over one million on TikTok and Instagram and who is clearly tailoring the message to get “the jab” to a younger audience.

Despite the obvious intent to promote the Biden administration’s vaccination campaign, the 1-minute spot does little to focus on information regarding the shots and more on Kooper’s personal eccentricities, although he does briefly promote the vaccines at the end with the slogan “we need to get shots in the arms of every single American.”

When it comes to CRINGE, it’s not going to be an easy task to top this one and the reception on Twitter was predictably brutal with the House Judiciary GOP weighing in with the sarcastic three-word response that perfectly describes the ad: Joe Biden’s America.

Then in what was an inadvertent acknowledgment of the House Republicans’ key point, White House assistant press secretary Angela Perez thanked them for their response, an exclamation point that the Biden administration is completely out of touch with America.

Some were quick to educate Psaki’s underling that it wasn’t intended to be a compliment.

Other reactions to the video make excellent points, including punching a hole in the bogus narrative that vaccine-hesitant conservatives and Trump supporters are the ones to blame for the spread of the delta variant.

Additional reactions added to the torrent of mockery that rained down on the White House.

Once again, the Democrats have shown that their entire worldview is shaped by identity politics, even when it comes to protecting Americans during an unprecedented public health crisis.
