Twitter Users Question White House’s Decision To Publish Jen Psaki Feet Pic

Earlier this year the Biden White House took the historic step of uploading pictures of Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s feet to the image hosting and sharing website Flickr, leading at least one pundit to question whether the “feet pics” were meant to help stabilize Joe Biden’s rapidly declining popularity.

On June 3 of this year, a photo titled P20210603CS-0674 was uploaded to the official Flickr account used by the White House. It was not immediately clear what the image portrayed judging solely from the image itself, as it simply features two vascular feet wearing high heels that are attached to a matching set of freckled legs, all owned by a person wearing a green or teal dress.

The description for the feet picture reveals, however, that the podiatric image portrays “Press Secretary Jen Psaki” holding “a Press Briefing on Thursday, June 3, 2021, in the James S. Brady White House Press Briefing Room.” The image is credited to White House photographer Cameron Smith.

The full image, in all of its glory, is available here:

Pundit Benjamin Braddock discovered the image and posted it to Twitter. “Desperate to reverse Biden’s approval ratings slide,” wrote Braddock, “the White House has now started posting Jen Psaki feet pics.”

If Braddock’s suggestion that the feet photograph was meant to attract those with a certain proclivity and thus improve Biden’s failing approval ratings, the effort would seem unsuccessful. Many replied with displays of revulsion:

Still, the image has resurfaced at a time when the majority of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s abysmal job performance, and at a time when 50% of Americans do not believe Biden is in “good health” and 48% of Americans believe that Biden is not “mentally fit” to be President of the United States.
