Video: Chris Wallace Riles Fox News and Calls Jen Psaki “One of the Best Press Secretaries Ever”

Chris Wallace’s comment about Jen Psake comes at the 12:40 mark

Dear Commons Community,

After four years of Trump press secretaries Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephanie Grisham, and Kayleigh McEnany, Joe Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, has been a breath of fresh air. Democrats have loved Psaki because they see her as having brought back a sense of competence and reliability.  Republicans and conservative have been more critical of her.  So it came as no surprise when Chris Wallace commented that she was “one of the best press secretaries ever,” that the far right and especially his colleagues at Fox News went berserk.

Chris Wallace knows about press secretaries. He began working as a White House press correspondent back in the 1970’s. So it was quite a compliment when he called Psaki one of the best press secretaries ever.

Wallace made the comments while speaking with Sandra Smith (see video above). The host played a clip of Doocy and Psaki discussing Joe Biden’s recent trip to the border. He responded, “Honestly, as somebody who’s spent six years in the White House, my immediate reaction was those are two people at the top of their game.”

The Fox host first praised colleague Doocy, saying, “I mean this as a compliment. I think he has become the Sam Donaldson of this White House press corps. And since I was working in the press corps when Sam Donaldson was there, that’s a very grudging compliment on my part.”

Wallace then moved onto Psaki, noting, [she] is one of the best press secretaries ever. I don’t know that anything was particularly accomplished, but they both gave and got pretty good.”

Fox News nation is having fits!

Sebastian Gorka, a pathetic Fox News contributor, tweeted that Wallace was “a clown” for his compliment about Psaki.
