Up until Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has never had a problem discussing Hunter Biden’s laptop, repeatedly dismissing it as “Russian disinfo.” But when the topic arose again on St. Patrick’s Day, she didn’t have the shamrocks to admit she was dead wrong.
As OutKick detailed early Thursday afternoon, the New York Times finally confirmed a nearly two-year old New York Post story that tied a personal laptop to President Biden’s son, Hunter. The laptop contains secrets, lies, and evidence of potentially illegal conduct and information. In short, open reporting about the laptop in the fall of 2020 would’ve been damning for the Biden campaign.
When Psaki was asked Thursday if President Biden still stood by his assessment that the story was “a bunch of garbage,” Psaki puckered and pivoted away from the question as quickly as possible: “I’d point you to the Department of Justice and also to Hunter Biden’s representatives. He doesn’t work in the government.”

It was an odd response, especially from someone such as Psaki who, less than two years ago, labeled any mention of Hunter Biden’s laptop as “Russian disinfo.” Psaki even went as far as to tweet about it just months before the November 2020 presidential election.
Though she was willing to discuss Hunter’s laptop back in 2020, to the surprise of no one, Psaki was less eager to address her giant L on Thursday.
“You were asked about Hunter Biden’s laptop,” Rob Crilly of the Daily Mail said, addressing Psaki. “You also in October 2020 dismissed it as ‘Russian disinformation.’ Do you stand by that assessment?”
A defeated Psaki’s only response was to go the broken record route: “Again, I’d point you to the Department of Justice and Hunter Biden’s representatives. I’m a spokesperson for the United States. He doesn’t work for the United States.”
But you do, Jen. And you owe the American people some answers.

Totally inept lying cunt what a pathetic human a political whore
So the administration that is looking to ferret out Russians trying to buy influence in our government doesn’t want anything to do with the treasure trove of Hunter’s laptop. Just another day in the Biden administration
It’s more instructive of how the Swamp rats didn’t melt down and refuse to let her off the hook! The confirmed info in the laptop references payments from foreign powers to the VP, who now is President, via a family member. Joe IS a member of US government between naps, even though he’s just there to sign Executive Orders. A real group of investigative journalists could see the story in her deflection…….if they weren’t Dementiacrat cheerleaders, all angling for her job when she goes to WokeTV!
