'Sure you’re not in middle school?' Jen Psaki ridicules Lauren Boebert's House floor antics
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki took a few jabs at Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday over her House floor antics that led to a confrontation with fellow MAGA Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
Discussing the altercation between the two where Greene called Boebert a "little b--ch," over a dispute over proposing impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden, MSNBC host Jonathan Lemire called what is going on within the GOP House caucus a "clown show."
That led co-host Joe Scarborough to add, "Jen Psaki, again, the chaos continues in the House. I can't help but think, at the end of the day, all this is going to do is damage the House candidates and turn the House back over to Democrats. "
"Well, exactly," the smiling Psaki replied. "I mean, in some ways, the White House and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee don't have to do much aside from get out of the way."
"As Jonathan just referenced, their entire message is competence versus chaos. As we just heard, kind of the outline from John Heilemann about the back-and-forth fight between Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene, I mean, Lauren Boebert responded and said, 'I'm not in middle school.' It's like, are you sure you're not in middle school? That's how middle schoolers act, you know?" she laughed.
"If you're the American public sitting at home, you're thinking, 'what a waste of time, what a waste of my time that they are doing there," she added. "That is exactly the contrast that the White House, if you're sitting in the White House right now, my old colleagues there, if you're sitting in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and you're working with Democratic candidates, you're going to run on, 'We'll do something. We will fight for you the public. That is chaotic and crazy there, and we will not be that.'"
