Former Biden Press Secretary Says Democrats Will Lose Mid Terms if Biden Gives Them a ‘Referendum’

Joe Biden’s former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki went on to call out her former boss on live TV and suggested that Democrats will “lose” the midterm elections if they get a referendum from Joe Biden.

In her appearance on NBC’s Morning Show, Psaki was discussing the midterm elections and the difference between Democrat and Republican campaign messaging.

“Look, I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, as we saw, you know, Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene, I’ll say her name, sitting over his left side, then they’re going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose, and they know that,” Psaki said.

She also noted that Democrats are vulnerable to issues of crime. Adding that Republicans are running ads focusing on crime against Pennsylvania Senate Candidate, John Fetterman.

“That’s where they see his vulnerability,” said Psaki.

“So, yes, the economy is hanging over everything, but you have [to] look at state-by-state factors, and crime is a huge issue in the Pennsylvania race,” she added.

Later in the same episode, Todd asked Psaki about her former boss, Joe Biden purposefully not saying President Donald Trump’s name in his rare public appearances.

“You don’t say their names, it’s like Beetlejuice, somehow it won’t show up if you don’t say their name. Now he leans into it more. Why?” Todd asked.

Psaki, in her classic “circle back” style, diffused the question and remarked that Biden ran “aggressively” on the claim that President Trump wasn’t fit for office and that not using President Trump’s name was a “strategic decision” when he took office and it’s not “what the public wanted.”

“But now it’s election season again. He did a lot of what he wanted to do, much of it in a bipartisan way, getting legislation done. And now the gloves are off. He’s got to maintain control of at least one house of Congress,” Psaki said.
