Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the US Department of State, had another cringeworthy moment, stating that the documentary about Crimea was badly made; the peculiar thing is that Psaki did not even see the film, but somehow sensed it was a “deceitful Russian propaganda” right away.
When a journalist asked Psaki to explain what she was specifically talking about when she said that the movie was consistent with Russia’s “deceitful approach” in eastern Ukraine, she answered that she had not actually seen the movie.
“I don’t have any confirmation of it. I haven’t seen the context of it. I don’t have more details on it,” Psaki said.
Yet again, Psaki let her mouth run without giving it too much thought. Crimea is not in eastern Ukraine, nor was it ever part of it. Last time she couldn’t tell who supplies whom with gas in Europe and was not sure if the United States was at war with the Islamic State, despite the fact that US airstrikes had already been going on. In less than a month, Psaki will move from the State Department and become the new White House communications director on April 1. No joke. Brace yourself.
