Jen Psaki Responds to Gwen Berry Controversy by, of Course, Bashing America
Gwen Berry is a hammer thrower who placed third at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. In a perfect world, we don't have to learn the names of people who rank third. Berry is making news because she threw a conniption after hearing the national anthem, claiming she was "set up" by hearing it play. Which was at the award ceremony for the U.S. Olympic track and field trials. Berry threw a shirt over her head, turned around, and pouted. Jen Psaki was asked about it at today's White House press briefing.
Her answer? Reassuring us that the president is extremely proud to be an American, BUUUUUUUT ...
The Biden WH gives support to Gwen Berry turning her back on the national anthem during #TrackFieldTrials21. While Jen Psaki hasn't spoken to Biden about her, she said "pride" in America means "respecting" those who recognize when we "haven't lived up to our highest ideals" pic.twitter.com/OVgQXg3YAz

We would recognize there are times in America where we haven't lived up to our highest ideals.
The president of the United States has yet to pass up an opportunity to divide Americans. Particularly when it comes to black Americans. A group of people the president feels doesn't know how to use the internet or hire an accountant without his help. It's not surprising this White House wouldn't pass on an opportunity to divide. I'm also sure Psaki wouldn't be as concerned about constitutional rights if a bronze medal winner put on a MAGA cap for the anthem. Though, if they were MAGA they'd be in first place.
Do I think Berry should be removed from the team like some others do? Meh. I'm of the belief the less publicity for this cheap stunt the better. I'd rather she not know that I know she exists. But the president of the United States should be able to have the balls to say this is inappropriate as you're representing the United States.
