A White House coronavirus vaccine video posted to Instagram had many conservatives scratching their heads on Monday as they wondered, “what fresh hell is this?”
According to Mediaite, the video featured Benito Skinner, a popular Instagram comedian known as Benny Drama, who, Jackson Richmond said, “plays a Gen Z White House intern named Kooper who reports to press secretary Jen Psaki.”
According to Mediaite:
At one point, Skinner asks Psaki if actress Olivia Rodrigo is still at the White House — where she visited a few weeks ago to help the Biden administration encourage people to get vaccinated.
“No,” said an irritated-looking Psaki.
Following a couple seconds of Skinner typing loudly on a keyboard and striking a pose, the video shows Psaki giving talking points about vaccination.
“We’ve come a long way in our fight against this virus. We’ve vaccinated 160 million Americans,” said Psaki as Skinner is looking at his phone.
“Are you getting this all down,” asked Psaki.
“Don’t worry, queen. It’s all right here,” replied Skinner pointing to his head.
At the close of the video, Skinner says, “We need to get shots in the arms of every single American,” as a smiling Psaki with what appears to be her briefing booklet looks on.
Reaction to the video was pretty much what you might expect:
This is pretty much a tacit admission on the behalf of the Biden administration that the people who aren't getting vaxxed aren't Republicans, because this isn't meant to appeal to the Right. https://t.co/ZKTPgyYKNI

Americans must unite and get vaccinated, so that none of us have to watch stuff like this ever again. https://t.co/gymBqI3lsZ

It's videos like this that make me want to buy the loudest motorcycle I can just for my daily trips to the mailbox. This is why I couldn't handle the closing ceremonies of the Olympics last night. It's just too much. https://t.co/U0he46wdSQ

wait okay I’ve figured this out, it’s like a hostage situation and if you get vaxxed they’ll stop doing this https://t.co/S83wvoxYPG

The trivialization of getting a Wuhan coronavirus vaccine, a private medical decision, has been absolutely enraging. From donuts to this. Does this answer any questions about hesitancy? Concerns? Nope. https://t.co/jwN8s4PKEZ

Everyone, please get vaccinated so we don’t have see anymore of this cringe. That was hard to watch.

What segment of the vaccine-hesitant population is this supposed to appeal to? https://t.co/N7Jwo16hK3

Exactly. Remember, we’re all supposed to believe that it’s only racist, sexist, homophobic, redneck Republican Trump supporters who are hesitant about the vaccine. I can pretty much guarantee this video isn’t going to influence them one bit.

It sure seems that way, doesn’t it?
Influence to do what?
