White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will offer her daily briefing at 11:30 a.m. D.C., time, on Thursday.
Today Psaki welcomes guest National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan who will be discussing the afterrnoon State Department visit by President Biden and Vice President Harris.
She will likely, though she has tried to squash it, be asked about Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and the House’s upcoming vote to remove the Crazy Q-Lady from her committee assignments.
Since the pressers are now daily, guessing at the questions, isn’t as easy, it also helps that President Biden doesn’t tweet insanely giving us a clue as to his ever rambling thoughts.
However, it’s highly likely she will be asked about the unemployment insurance weekly claims released this morning, ahead of tomorrows jobs report.
The Labor Department says that in the week ending January 30, “the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 779,000” this is a decrease of 33,000 from the previous week’s revised level.
The question will probably be asked in a way that connects the decrease in unemployment first time claims and the $1.9 trillion American Rescue plan. Something like, doesn’t the decrease show we could maybe spend less money to get more Republicans on board?
Chief of Staff Ronald Klain offered a likely answer to that question…
The White House.
