During a virtual Q&A session where White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki answered pre-screened questions about the Biden administration, she responded to an inquiry about Biden’s plan to aid small businesses by boasting, “First and foremost, he nominated a woman to lead the Small Business administration.”
“First and foremost, he nominated a woman to lead the Small Business administration who formerly worked there,” Psaki said, adding, “‘The second thing is that he signed an executive order for uh, minority-owned small businesses to get access to the funding that they need.”
The Biden spokeswoman then went on to address other difficult questions such as whether or not she likes putting pineapples on pizza.

Psaki previously stated that the American people should not be surprised that Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen was paid millions of dollars by Wall Street firms prior to her nomination.
Biden has pledged to distribute relief to small business on a racialized basis, prioritizing every minority sexual and ethnic demographic except white male Americans, Europeans, and Arabs.
“Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild,” Biden said, falsely inferring that minorities and women have less access to resources than white men.
“But we’re going to make a concerted effort to help small businesses in low-income communities, in big cities, small towns, rural communities, that have faced systemic barriers to relief,” Biden continued.
Biden then urged viewers to conjure up a sympathetic image of a mom-and-pop small business owner, who presumably must be non-white or female to have a chance at receiving lockdown relief from the Biden administration.
It remains to be seen if Psaki will “circle back” to providing an answer for worried small business owners that does not involve racial and gender-specific platitudes.
