Today News Africa reporter heckles the clueless Jen Psaki throughout her final press briefing
In a chaotic yet humorous final press briefing from Jen Psaki, chief White House correspondent for Today News Africa Simon Ateba heckled the clueless Press Secretary relentlessly.
“Why don’t you take questions from across the room?” Ateba shouted over his colleagues.
“Why don’t you take questions from across the room? Because that’s not what you’ve done for the past 15 months,” Ateba repeated, again, over his colleagues.
Psaki, whose favoritism as Press Secretary has been as infamous as her inability to give straight answers, rarely took questions from Ateba and other correspondents relegated to the back of the room.
“Jen, can I ask you a question from the back?” he is heard saying. “Jen, can I ask you a question from the back?”
By this point other reporters, such as NPR’s Tamara Keith, are urging Ateba to stop. He, however, did not.
“Simon, if you can respect your colleagues and other media and reporters in here, that would be greatly appreciated,” Psaki finally quipped after the heckling overpowered her.
Psaki often refuses to answer questions from foreign outlets and typically only takes questions from front row reporters.
Ateba may lack decorum in his stunt but his protest is necessary. Favoritism is a common theme throughout the entire Biden regime, including towards the press.
Frankly, Ateba is venting the frustration of all reporters from the back of the room whether they admit it or not.
