‘Yes, Sherlock, there’s a pattern’: Psaki shoves foot in her mouth when noting timing of Putin’s aggression

White House press secretary Jen Psaki seemed to only just now figure the connection between Russian President Vladimir Putin’s timing on invading Ukraine that everyone not in the administration has known from the get-go.

In the days leading up to the invasion, members of the corporate media unexpectedly began asking some real questions pertaining to Putin’s threats against the neighboring country. NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken why Putin hadn’t invaded during President Trump’s administration.

“I hope you get a chance to ask him,” Blinken responded. The State Department head can now find solace in knowing that he need not wait for Putin to sit down for a post-invasion exclusive with Todd. Psaki has stepped up to clear up the mystery.

“You know, I was at the State Department,” Psaki began. “The President was the vice president the last time Russia invaded Ukraine. This is a pattern of horror from this pres- from President Putin and from the cronies around him.”

Naturally, there were some congratulations in order for the deductions Psaki managed to sleuth.

Alec Sears from the Washington Examiner suggested Psaki hadn’t actually figured anything out but was just “…saying the quiet part out loud.”

The Heritage Foundation’s John Cooper hinted that maybe this wasn’t the best public relations strategy.

Matt Whitlock who used to work for the National Republican Senatorial Committee disagreed. He felt Psaki’s message was a great reminder, you know, “In case you weren’t aware of the way adversaries have consistently taken advantage of Joe Biden’s weakness.”

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) was surprised to find that there was something he could agree with Psaki on.

Lest it be forgotten, Psaki wasn’t just talking about President Joe Biden’s involvement in the previous and current invasions of Ukraine. She proudly reminded CNN that she was at the State Department during the 2014 attack against Ukraine.

Maybe the Ukrainians should be worried about what Psaki thinks #UnitedForUkraine actually means.

Here is a flashback of Psaki “united” with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. That would be the same Sergey Lavrov who had a majority of the United Nations Human Rights Council walk out on him while he accused the European Union of a “Russophobic frenzy” Tuesday.

Also featured is former secretary of state, and current climate czar, John Kerry who has stated while Putin’s forces continue to invade Ukraine that he hopes “President Putin will help us to stay on track with respect to what we need to do for the climate.”
