Biden Choice for Press Secretary Jen Psaki Donned Hammer & Sickle Hat in Old Photo – USA Today Says ‘Missing Context’


An old photo of Jen Psaki leaked showing her with all smiles wearing a Communist hammer & sickle hat.

Seriously? A communist hat.

It appears that Biden’s choice for Press Secretary has no issues wearing the symbol of the ideology responsible for the deaths of over 100 million people?

Seems like there should be a probe into possible Russia collusion.

Am I right?

Of course, the delusional “fact checkers” from the USA Today try to alter reality as usual.

The fact checkers claimed the photo had “Missing Context.”

She’s wearing a hat with the hammer & sickle!

What context do you need?

Critics rightfully blasted the USA Today for the absurdity.

This just shows the hideous mind games the mainstream media likes to play.

Communism is an ugly black eye on the face of humanity and this should have caused outrage in all circles.

But since she works for a Democrat president, there’s nothing to see here.

It’s disgusting!

As reported by Fox News:

Jen Psaki, an Obama administration alum, was one of several women who were named to head the White House communications team recently announced by the Biden-Harris transition. Psaki is set to take over the podium in the White House briefing room.

However, following the announcement of Psaki’s hire, a 2014 image resurfaced featuring her posing with her then-boss, former Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova during her tenure as a State Department spokesperson.

Psaki is seen wearing a pink shapka, or fur hat, that bears the communist hammer-and-sickle logo as part of a gift exchange between herself and her Russian counterpart Zakharova.

The hammer and sickle has come to represent communist movements around the world. It also was featured on the flag of the former Soviet Union. It has also become a symbol of economic and political repression that occurs under communist regimes.

The photograph sparked mockery on social media as critics poked fun at the Russian collusion narrative that plagued much of the Trump presidency that jokingly would carry over into the Biden administration.

On Tuesday, USA Today released a “fact check” that weighed in on the viral image.

“The claim: A photo shows Jen Psaki wearing a hammer and sickle hat while posing with officials from Russia,” USA Today wrote before reporting that Psaki did not end up keeping the hat according to a source familiar with the gift exchange. “Our ruling: Missing context.”

The “fact check” explained, “The image is real, but claims that the hat was anything more a gift or that Psaki was with Russian officials in any capacity beyond her official role are MISSING CONTEXT.”

Regardless, the newspaper’s “fact check” was panned by critics on the right.
