• Preteen Girls Are Running the Obama State Department

    The president might as well let Selena Gomez have a spokesperson gig

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I often feel like the amateurish nature of how Obama’s spokespeople spin his failures is even worse that his dastardly deeds in the first place. On multiple occasions, former UN Ambassador John Bolton has called the Obama State Department a bunch of “children,” and he’s absolutely right. Not to sound sexist — though I’m positive it will be taken that way — but when I look at Marie Harf, all I can think about is a 14 year old girl putting on mommy’s work clothes and pretending to be an adult. When it’s Jen Psaki speaking at the podium, I imagine that she just came from Arts & Crafts class. Even White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri seems like she’d rather be waiting on line to see the newest Hunger Games movie.

    And so, we have a handful of Twihards running the State Department. If you disagree, please feel free to offer another explanation for the hashtags and complete lack of sophistication on world affairs. The president should be embarrassed that these people are representing him, yet amazingly, he puts them front and center for cringe-worthy interviews like this:

    When Andrea Mitchell is pointing out the hypocrisy of a Democrat administration and all of its related minions, you KNOW there’s a problem. But one thing we know about little kids is that they like to lie. And most of the time, they haven’t yet figured out how to do it in such a way that passes the smell test. Marie Harf is so busy giggling at Mitchell’s questions about Obama’s double standards that she hasn’t got the slightest clue about how much of an idiot she appears to be.

    But that’s just another day in Barry’s State Department. Sometimes I get the unsettling feeling that Harf and Psaki treat their jobs speaking for the administration like they’re on Justin Bieber’s street team. And it suits them well, because I’ve never met a single individual who takes either one of them seriously. Honestly, stapling Justin posters around town seems like something they’d rather be doing anyway, so why don’t their just cut their losses?
