This is Jen Psaki. She was named White House Press Secretary by Joe Biden. In this photo she is wearing a hat with the communist hammer and sickle symbol on it. Somebody should call Bob Mueller and ask for the next "Russia Collusion" investigation … pic.twitter.com/0xMtfnnLHv

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.”
The claim: A photo shows Jen Psaki, Joe Biden's pick for press secretary, wearing a hammer and sickle hat while posing with officials from Russia.
Our ruling: Missing context https://t.co/r36VAwWZWV

She’s wearing a hat with the hammer & sickle!
What context do you need?
Critics rightfully blasted the USA Today for the absurdity.
Why are you fat checking this? No one’s making a claim just showing her wearing a commie hat… THATS A FACT!!!
If the media stopped running cover for Democrats as their primary mission maybe they have some credibility left. https://t.co/DtcKwkAev9

Missing context?! Sorry, this IS inexcusable. Not to sound harsh here, but if you abhor Nazism and Nazi symbols, you ought to equally abhor the communist hammer & sickle. Pleading ignorance here is unacceptable. But I'm just a kid of immigrants who fled the USSR…What do I know https://t.co/Yxr4ZYSmrb

Comical how the media covers for the Left
Jen Psaki gets a hammer & sickle hat fm a Russian
USA Today says that's OK cuz it was a gift
She validated their symbol of communist domination & death
Should she wear a Qods Force hat fm the Mullahs? https://t.co/rfqOwlNZvK

This is not a "fact check."
USA Today is engaged in partisan editorializing to spin a damning photo of a Democrat.
Jen Psaki was photographed wearing a hammer & sickle hat.
Claiming there is "missing context" while in effect criticizing conservatives doesn't change that. https://t.co/DZEBaG9Rcu

With 100% certainty, we know that if @PressSec was the subject of this image, mainstream media would present it as clear proof of Russian collusion.
But for @jrpsaki, they declared there’s nothing to see here.

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.
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.
