MSNBC’s cult of far-left viewers will probably be delighted to see former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is joining the network’s lineup on Mondays beginning later this month.
Psaki will take one night from MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who has been giving up Mondays to a rotating cast of far-left hosts recently anyway.
At least Nicolle Wallace will no longer be the most abrasive person on the network.
Psaki hasn’t announced what her show in primetime will look like. Perhaps she will circle back to the world on that at some point before she debuts on Sept. 25.
We can assume it will be just as dull and misleading as Sunday’s “Inside with Jen Psaki,” but just a day later and in the evening as opposed to in the morning.
The Sunday show will continue to air while Hayes will host his show from Tuesday to Friday.
It’s worth noting that Psaki’s presence during primetime appears to be a sign MSNBC is going all-in on getting her former boss, President Joe Biden
Few people expect fair or even accurate coverage from the network anyway, so why not put someone up who has shamelessly lied for him previously?
Psaki debuted on MSNBC last year and has been a hit with the network’s loyal audience since her morning show launched in March of this year.
Lying on cable television does seem to suit her better than lying to the White House press pool. Let’s take a look at some of her lowlights as Biden’s press secretary:
Psaki set a really low bar as it relates to being the face of the Biden White House.
Yet somehow current press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been worse than her predecessor. Exceedingly worse.
Based on Psaki’s career trajectory, though, we could assume that Jean-Pierre might end up stealing Joy Reid’s MSNBC slot – once she’s finally had enough of the circus.
