White House reporters turn on KJP over glowing Vogue profile featuring her wearing designer fashion: 'Shows just how out of touch the party is'

Members of the White House press corps slammed press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre over a glowing profile in latest issue of Vogue magazine.

The profile, which features pictures of Jean-Pierre wearing designer fashion, praises Jean-Pierre as both history-making and a straight shooter. Her "currency," the profile claims, is her "quality of directness — blunt, with a touch of compassion." She is, according to the profile, a "realist," someone who "disarm[s]" reporters and "lay[s] out the facts."

All positive for Jean-Pierre. But White House reporters didn't like it.

"It's sad that a magazine that purports to be practicing journalism is profiling a press secretary that's gone out of her way to deliberately silence members of the press corps," one veteran White House reporter told the New York Post. "We shouldn't be rewarding those who actively obfuscate facts and seek to undermine freedom of the press, which Karine Jean-Pierre and her press office have done on numerous occasions and which the press corps has pushed back against."

Another reporter mocked the profile using Jean-Pierre's style of obfuscation.

"I understand the question. I appreciate the question. I get the question. I'm just going to refer you to the White House counsel’s team for all questions about the substance of the KJP Vogue profile," the reporter told the Post.

Jean-Pierre is known for rarely providing substantive answers to questions, especially the difficult ones. Vogue's profile only mentioned one such instance of her dodging a reporter's question.

Meanwhile, yet another reporter, whom the Post said works for a "liberal-leaning" news outlet, slammed the hypocrisy of Jean-Pierre appearing in Vogue of all magazines.

"It's the kind of magazine that exemplifies everything KJP's Democratic Party has come to stand for right now: ostentatious wealth concentrated and controlled by a very small minority of Americans," that reporter said. "The sheer cost of the clothing KJP is modeling shows just how out of touch the party is with the pain people feel right now trying to make ends meet."

Aside from obscene levels of question-dodging, Jean-Pierre's tenure will be remembered for providing media with less access to the White House.

Jill Biden’s Frumpy Grammys Dress Is Not ‘Stunning’ Or ‘Brilliant,’ It’s A Sign Of Civilizational Decline

It doesn’t matter that Jill Biden looked like she was wrapped in aluminum foil, the media excessively fawned over the first lady.

Jen Psaki doesn't like being called 'nice' — it's sexist and diminishing

In a glowing feature article published Monday, Vogue described White House press secretary Jen Psaki as warm, humorous, intelligent, and edgy. But one thing reporter Lizzie Widdicombe didn't call her was "nice" — and it's a good thing she didn't. That's not a descriptive word Psaki is particularly fond of. In fact, she thinks it's sexist.

Vogue's article began by fawning over Psaki, 42, in a way that was to be expected from a liberal publisher that took a "four-year hiatus" from the White House during Donald Trump's presidency.

Widdicombe described Psaki's first press briefing as one that earned a "collective swoon" from reporters. A reception "largely due to what she was not doing: berating the assembled reporters, griping about CNN's coverage of a presidential tweet, or spouting flagrant, easily disprovable lies."

"She had a mixture of warmth, humor, intelligence, and edge," Widdicombe said of the Biden official.

But lest any readers start to think of her as a "pushover," the article made sure to include ample descriptions of Psaki's toughness and resolve. Former colleague David Axelrod noted that she is "unflappable" and "has a steel rod for a spine."

One such example apparently occurred at the White House recently when someone introducing Psaki to a foreign delegation made the horrible mistake of describing her as "a really nice person."

She tells me that she hates when people describe her as "nice." "It is like nails on a chalkboard," she says. "And it still happens. I was introduced to a foreign delegation in the hallway the other day as 'This is Jen. You may have seen her do the briefings. She's a really nice person.' I'm like, Really? You can't think of a better description?" The word is sexist and a little diminishing, but, she says, "it's also this desire to put people in a box. Yes, sometimes I'm friendly and joyful, and sometimes I'm tough, and sometimes I'm straightforward." After shadowing Psaki for a bit, I start to think that her real gift is her ability to be several of these things at the same time. Many of her cheerful quips are actually ways of shutting down a line of questioning. When there's information the administration is not ready to share yet, she'll respond with a chipper "Stay tuned!" or "Buckle up!" Or she'll brush aside questions about tense dealmaking by chirping, "Democracy in action!"

Hot Air writer Karen Townsend, in her coverage of the Vogue article, notes that "most people would appreciate the description" since "it's a personal acknowledgment, not a comment on her professional abilities" nor a "dismissive remark."

But not to Psaki, who reportedly thinks being called "nice" is restrictive, sexist, and diminishing. It's a wonder what she thinks of "sweet" or "kind."
