White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took a page from her boss’s playbook Wednesday; bolting from the podium when asked to comment on Hunter Biden’s laptop scandal.
“Thanks everyone!” proclaimed Psaki.
“We have a question about Hunter Biden… In 2019 you tweeted it was Russian disinfo… Now it’s been corroborated. Have you changed your mind?” one journalist can be heard asking the Press Secretary.
Psaki was also grilled by reporters after British Prime Minister spoke with members of the media inside the Oval Office, saying the administration was unhappy he “called on” the press “without alerting us in advance.”
“The British Prime Minister in the American Oval Office called on British reporters, and when American reporters tried to call on the American President, we were escorted out,” said one reporter.
“He called on individuals from his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance,” fired-back Psaki.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson took questions from the American media inside the White House this week while President Joe Biden refused to speak with the reporters, prompting his handlers to usher the media out of the Oval Office.
“IN THE OVAL OFFICE… @POTUS Biden and British PM @BorisJohnson meet to discuss pandemic, trade and other issues. Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said,” posted CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe on Twitter.

UPDATE: We have played back the tape and part of the president’s answer is decipherable. I asked for his response to the situation on the southern border and he says in part, “Violence is not justified.”
He is wearing a mask and there is shouting so nothing else is decipherable

Shortly after the meeting the press pool filed a formal complaint to Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s office.
“US @WhiteHousepress pool immediately protests Oval Office treatment. (This dispatch from radio pooler and @whca president @stevenportnoy.),” Voice of America journalist Steve Herman reported.
“The entire editorial component of the US pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office, and that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the Southern Border. Biden’s answer could not be heard over the shouting,” the statement reads. “Psaki was unaware that the incident had occurred, and suggested that she was not in position to offer an immediate solution. Your pooler requested a press conference. Psaki suggested the president takes questions several times a week.”

AIR BIDEN? Secret Service Reportedly Provided Security for Hunter Biden on 400+ Trips
An explosive report from JustTheNews.com is shedding new light on Hunter Biden’s dealings during the eight years of the Obama administration; showing the Vice President’s son was provided a Secret Service security detail on hundreds of flights.
“Hunter Biden has already made headlines with his pursuit of global business, raising questions about conflicts of interests by landing lucrative deals in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was vice president,” reports JustTheNews.com. “And now it’s his proclivity for globetrotting travel that is garnering attention.”
“The son of the former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential nominee in waiting used Secret Service protection on at least 411 international and domestic trips during the Obama years, according to records released this month under the Freedom of Information Act to the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch,” adds the website.
“Given the Burisma-Ukraine-China influence peddling scandals, Hunter Biden’s extensive international travel during the Obama-Biden presidency, including at least 5 trips to China, will raise additional questions,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said after releasing the records.

BIAS EXPOSED! Kayleigh McEnany Calls-Out Media for Ignoring Hunter Biden, Eric Swalwell Scandal
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called-out the mainstream media Tuesday over their refusal to cover growing scandals surrounding Hunter Biden and Congressman Eric Swalwell.
“McEnany noted that President Trump’s Middle East peace deals haven’t received significant coverage by the mainstream media but told viewers they shouldn’t be surprised at this point,” reports Fox News.
.@PressSec @KayleighMcEnany's closing statement at today's briefing was a #mustwatch, absolutely torching the liberal media's purposeful lack of curiosity and interest in Eric Swalwell's relationship with Chinese spy #FangFang but spent years spinning Trump-Russia lies (1/) pic.twitter.com/vNJ87wg9IB

“In the last 24, 48 hours there have been quite a few stories that have not gotten a ton of coverage in the mainstream media, as former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said, ‘Bias is often found in the stories the press does not cover,’” McEnany said.
“We found out that Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell was infiltrated by an alleged Chinese spy, this spy cozied up to Swalwell, raised funds for his 2014 campaign and even planted an intern in his office and that relationship continued until the FBI briefed him in 2015, and that was some very good reporting done by Axios,” she said.
