MOSCOW, February 26 – RIA Novosti. White House press secretary Jen Psaki at the press conference was unable to pronounce the name of the US Department of Health.
The representative of the US President, answering a question from a journalist, twice unsuccessfully tries to pronounce the name of the American Ministry of Health (Health and Human Services), after which he apologizes and uses the abbreviation instead of the full name of the department.
Psaki has repeatedly been the object of criticism and parodies – largely due to the reservations and confusion she allowed when discussing world politics.
The most famous were her statements about natural gas, which “is transported through a gas pipeline from Western Europe through Ukraine to Russia”, threats to send the US fleet to the shores of Belarus and the traditional “I need to clarify in the office.”
