Jen Psaki made a stunning admission in a patently flippant way last week during a conversation with CNN's David Axelrod. The White House press secretary openly admitted that President Biden's handlers often tell him they prefer he not speak to reporters outside of controlled settings.

"He takes questions nearly every day he's out [with] the press," Psaki told her former CNN and Obama administration colleague and friend Axelrod on "The Axe Files" podcast.

"A lot of times, we say, 'Don't take questions,'" she continued. "But he's going to do what he wants to do because he's the president of the United States."

Think about that for a moment, and ask yourself this: Isn't it amazing, almost disturbing, that the leader of the free world, a man who received more votes than any other candidate in U.S. history, is being told when he's allowed to speak to reporters outside of the desired controlled environment?

For giggles, picture former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany saying it's "not something we recommend" regarding President Trump taking impromptu questions from reporters, which he did more often than any of his predecessors by a country mile. Then imagine the reaction of, say, Jim Acosta or any other journalist upon hearing it. Smelling salts and/or a defibrillator come to mind.

That is why, of course, the president only calls from a predetermined list of reporters who rarely challenge him. Hostility toward the previous president has been replaced with hospitality toward the current one.

"We'll just send that one to CIA Mockingbird and circle back. They write all of the stuff for the senile coot anyway. I'm tired of fielding for the 'need to know' puppeteers, anyway!"
