Psaki offers advice to Americans angry over so-called 'voting rights' legislation: 'Go to a kickboxing class. Have a margarita!'

"So my advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off—feel these emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend. And then wake up on Monday morning. We've got to keep fighting," Psaki said.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki offered advice Friday to Americans angry over the so-called "voter rights" legislation failing in Congress. The legislation proposed for so-called "voting rights" that was working its way in Congress have now been stopped in its tracks by a filibuster in the Senate.

"So my advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off—" started Psaki during an appearance on The View. "Feel these emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend."

"And then wake up on Monday morning. We've gotta keep fighting," Psaki continued, adding: "We have to keep talking to members about federal legislation; that's essential. That's something that can be permanent, that can make sure people's rights are protected."

"But we also need to make sure people are educated in states across the country about what their rights are: how they can vote, when they can vote, how to request an absentee ballot," the Biden spokesperson said.

"There's a lot we need to do on that front, and that's gonna rely on the energy and the anger of that 'activism' as well," Psaki said.

Critics have been calling Psaki tone deaf after this statement and saying that she is out of touch with the real situation on the streets of America today.

Twitter users were quick to point out that those angry about so-called "voter rights" apparently will have no trouble finding a kickboxing class or using their IDs to order a margarita:

What this cringeworthy moment reveals is that Psaki knows exactly who has fallen for the fake "voter rights" narrative: the latte-sipping, Peloton-owning, kickboxing class-taking, margarita-swilling leisure class who think that their tweeting is activism.
