Psaki steamrolls NBC’s Kristen Welker for asking about feds potentially charging Hunter Biden

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki may have relinquished the podium to her vastly inferior successor Karine Jean-Pierre but she hasn’t lost her touch when it comes to ducking serious questions and dispensing her condescending snark with aplomb.

President Joe Biden’s ex-spox who may have seen the writing on the wall when she jumped ship earlier this year for a new gig at MSNBC, seemed rudely dismissive of NBC’s Kristen Welker who tried to get a response from her on whether the walls may be closing in on her old boss’s crooked, crack-smoking, sexual degenerate son on this week’s edition of her network’s Sunday morning flagship “Meet the Press” only to be rejected by Psaki.

Welker – who was filling in for regular host Chuck Todd – posed the question to Psaki during the panel discussion segment of the show.

“I want to start this discussion by talking about President Biden and his wild week from the decision by OPEC to cut oil production, Jen, to these revelations at the end of the week in The Washington Post that investigators believe they do have enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden. It’s not clear he’s going to be charged, but how large is this looming over the president, over Democrats broadly?” Welker asked.

Psaki oozed superiority with her disrespectful reply, steamrolling the hapless Welker.

“Well, it was a big week here in Washington. So much news. I don’t even know how you decided what to talk about this morning, Kristen,” she said.

“But the truth is, you know, I looked at a bunch of local front pages this morning,” she said, not even acknowledging the question. “And if you look at the front page in Nevada, they’re talking about Trump’s rally there and what it means for candidates in turning out to vote. If you look at the front pages in Pennsylvania, they’re talking about, ‘Mastriano, does he have a grassroots campaign or movement going?’”

“And obviously, Georgia is quite focused on every latest development in Herschel Walker,” she continued, taking a shot at the embattled former NFL star. “So the truth is as much as there was so much news happening in Washington this week, it doesn’t always translate—and often doesn’t translate—to what voters are talking about in states and I think that’s what we’re seeing currently.”

Welker was, of course, referring to last week’s bombshell Washington Post report that the feds believe that they have “sufficient evidence” to bring charges against Hunter Biden, albeit on minor charges considering the explosive amount of damning material that has been reported as being on the so-called “laptop from hell” that the son of wealth and privilege unbelievably abandoned in a Delaware computer repair shop.

The WaPo report which relied on the usual anonymous sources in the form of “people familiar with the case,” said that the feds have compiled enough of the goods on the younger Biden to slap him with charges of tax crimes and making a false statement about a gun purchase, and the decision now rests with a U.S. Attorney in Delaware.”

Considering that opening Pandora’s box of Biden family corruption is the last thing that Democrats want in the waning weeks before the most important midterm elections in the nation’s history, Psaki was only doing her part in making sure that the topic didn’t get any exposure on national television.

Poor Kristen Welker, she didn’t know what hit her.
