Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted during an appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press that Democrats will lose the 2022 midterms if the elections are a referendum on Joe Biden and Democrat’s lenient crime polices.
“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,” Psaki said. “If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose, and they know that.”
“They also know that crime is a huge vulnerability for Democrats, I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities,” Psaki added.
“What’s been interesting to me is it’s always you follow the money, and where are people spending money,” she continued. “And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans have been spending millions of dollars on the air on crime ads against Fetterman because that’s where they see his vulnerability.”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich castigated the Biden administration’s rhetoric during the current inflation crisis, claiming the White House is “deluded and sitting around in a fantasy world” ahead of the midterm elections.
“It’s just a question of on Election Day or nowadays, since we vote for a whole month on election month, when somebody goes in to vote, do they remember the last time they went to the grocery store?” Gingrich stated during an appearance on Fox News.
“Do you remember the last time they filled up their car?” Gingrich added. “I paid $5.05 a gallon on Saturday, and Biden the other day was totally false in claiming the price of gasoline. He used a number that doesn’t exist and has not existed anywhere in America since he’s been president.”
“So you have to assume the White House is deluded and sitting around in a fantasy world,” Gingrich continued. “But I think as real Americans face crime in the street, they face prices at the gas station, prices at the grocery store, and they’re going to start facing layoffs as the Federal Reserve keeps raising interest rates.”
