(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – After pointing out that President Joe Biden was the Vice President the last time Russia invaded Ukraine, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was mocked on social media.
In the statements that drew widespread ridicule, Psaki said, “I was at the State Department, the president was the vice-president the last time Russia invaded Ukraine,” while appearing on CNN on Wednesday. She continued her statements saying, “This is a pattern of horror from President Putin and from the cronies around him.”
On Twitter, the response to Psaki’s comments was brutal, with many users quickly pointing out Psaki had inadvertently connected Putin’s aggression to Biden being a position in power.
In 2014, while Biden was serving as Vice President, Russia invaded and annexed the Crimea region of Ukraine.
Daily Telegraph Editor, James Morrow, was one of the first to make jabs at Psaki’s statements, saying, “The first step is admitting you have a problem.”
Appearing to paraphrase Psaki’s remarks, Blogger Jim Treacher tweeted, “‘This guy only seems to invade other countries while my boss is in office.'”
Comedian Tim Young said that the pattern Psaki was describing is “a pattern of weakness from a Democrat that our enemies know won’t stop them.”
Kellyanne Conway, a former Trump adviser, also tweeted “finally, the truth” in response to the clip from Psaki, with political commentator Monic Crowley, making her deriding remarks, “Yes, Sherlock, there is a pattern,” Crowley tweeted.
“Reminding people that a top adversary has taken advantage of your boss not just once, but twice, is…not great messaging,” John Cooper, Heritage Foundation Communications Director, tweeted.
Psaki’s comments come after President Joe Biden made his first State of the Union address, where he touched heavily on the Russia-Ukraine conflict and attempted to reassure Americans that things would be “OK.”
“I know news about what’s happening can seem alarming to all Americans, but, I want you to know, we’re going to be OK. We’re going to be OK,” Biden stated about the ongoing war.
He continued his remarks saying, “When the history of this era is written, Putin’s war in Ukraine will have left Russia weaker and the rest of the world stronger.”
