Psaki Mocked Bethany Mandel’s Brain Freeze

In the inaugural episode of MSNBC’s Inside With Jen Psaki, the former Biden White House press secretary decided to mock conservatives for their criticism of the left’s woke ideology.

She chose to focus on a moment from an interview given by the conservative author and commentator Bethany Mandel in which she had a brief brain freeze when asked to define wokeness.

Of course, it’s all the more hypocritical when you consider that Psaki’s immediate successor, Karine Jean-Pierre, is incapable of putting a coherent sentence together even on her best day.

Psaki began the segment by noting: “In a recent interview, it was even too difficult for at least one conservative commentator to define what woke actually even means.

Conservative author Bethany Mandel has written a book that covers this exact subject.” She then cut to video of Mandel’s interview on The Hill’s Rising in which the leftist co-host Briahna Joy Gray asked the gotcha question:

BRIAHNA JOY GRAY: “Would you mind defining woke because it’s come up a couple times and I just want to make sure we’re on the same page.”

BETHANY MANDEL: “So–I mean–woke is–sort of the idea that–this is gonna be one of those moments that goes viral. I mean woke is something that’s very hard to define and we spent an entire chapter defining it. It is sort of the understanding that we need to re–totally reimagine and redo society in order to great hierarchies of oppression. Sorry—It’s hard to explain in a 15-second sound bite.”

Psaki then proceeded to lecture Bethany Mandel and the GOP, stating, “Just two cents from someone who has worked a few years in communications. If you can’t explain it, and people don’t understand it in 15 seconds, it may not be the winning message you think it is.”

It is easy to see why Jen Psaki’s show is such a dismal failure. As a former Biden White House Press Secretary, she has shown her true colors as an apologist for the Democratic Party. Her segment on mocking Bethany Mandel for her brain freeze is a prime example of her political bias.

Rather than engaging in meaningful debate on the issues, Psaki would rather take cheap shots at conservatives. This is not only unprofessional, it is a disservice to the American people. We deserve to have politicians and journalists who are willing to engage in meaningful dialogue and debate on the issues, not those who resort to belittling and ridicule.


The left’s woke ideology is a direct attack on our nation’s core values and traditions. The only way to defeat it is through meaningful dialogue and debate, not through mockery and insults. Until Psaki and her allies can learn to respect their opponents, they will continue to be seen as nothing more than political tools for the Democratic Party.
