Joe Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, made a poor attempt at humor today when she was questioned about the supply chain crisis.
A reporter asked her why President Biden hadn’t acted sooner to address the crisis and was even so bold as to imply Biden’s administration had failed to anticipate the situation. Ms. Psaki, the Rosa Klebb lookalike, responded sarcastically by saying some people may have to wait a little longer for their treadmill to arrive. Was she trying to pivot from a discussion of another looming disaster with this crack?
I’m sure Joe’s staff will not experience shortages in the Karl Marx dining room at the White House. There will be plenty of wraps, sprouts, kale and certainly no shortage of nuts there. The rest of us however will just have to do without and don’t think I’m joking about that. I noted empty spaces on the grocery shelves today reminiscent of the shortages during the quarantine.
Interestingly there are YouTube clips on line of old Joe in 2020 blaming food shortages on Donald Trump’s lack of leadership. I doubt Joe would be able to recall this without a teleprompter. Perhaps that was why Ms. Psaki was snarky with the reporter. Had Sarah Huckabee been that callous, CNN would have erupted with indignation for days and The View would have boiled Sarah in effigy.
If this is more of Building Back Better, it ain’t funny Rosa.

I appreciate your sarcasm and humor as for what is being called a “Supply Chain Issue” but I’m fearful it is a little bit more diabolical that that.
Although there are some out there who think everything is fine since the bad orange man is out of office, he understood that we are at war on several fronts and addressed it head long. He understood that the Chicoms were eating our lunch in several areas, either by direct control or controlling raw materials, and he stood against those who were and are profiting (Hunter and the Big Man and many other of our elected representatives) being influenced by China.
Wars are fought on several fronts and ways now days, including economic, intelligence and communication, and what we are experiencing is just a good old fashion blockade to punish the United States, but also to try to influence the next election cycle.
I dare say that we will see the throttle opened up just a little after Christmas by some miraculous act of Joe and his minions, just in time to artificially pump the economy up to try to give the incumbent Democrats a leg up in the next election.
Be blessed and ready.
