White House Criticized For Cringey Influencer Intern Video Promoting Vaccines

The White House’s latest attempt to influence America’s youth to get vaccinated was widely mocked as a national “embarrassment.”

 Benny Drama, a comedy influencer with over a 1.3 million Instagram followers, was tapped to star as “Kooper the Gen Z Intern,” while press secretary Jen Psaki played the suffering straight woman.  

Drama acts as an inept White House intern that shows up for work in a pinstripe shorts-suit and long white manicured nails. 

“We did it Joe,” he laughs as he walks down the hallway, then enters his office with white dog purse, strikes a pose, and exclaims: “Vogue.” 

Later he pops into Psaki’s office and tells her that he made her a nail appointment, to which she says, “Yeah, I didn’t tell you to do that.” Drama chuckles and replies, “Yeah, it’s called initiative.” 

In another clip he answers the phone as he dabs his face with make-up, listens to the caller’s request, then says, “Yeah, I don’t think so,” and hangs up. When Psaki inquires about the call, he brushes her off with “it doesn’t matter.”

Later, Drama poses in a white suit and skirt combo, then boredly picks at his teeth with his long fingernails while scrolling through his phone, as Psaki explains the Biden administration’s vaccine efforts. 

“We’ve come a long way in our fight against this virus, we’ve vaccinated 160 million Americans,” she tells him, before asking if he was taking all the information down. Drama glibly replies, “Don’t worry queen,” then points to his temple and says, “it’s all right here.”

Politicians and pundits alike were stunned by the video. “So cringe and pathetic. And I need eye bleach. . .” Conservative author Ned Ryun tweeted.   

“If this is how the White House thinks it’s going to get more people vaccinated I don’t think we will ever get there,” said Sean Spicer.   

“Seems like a very effective way to reach out to vax reluctant groups like minorities, Trump Voters, and Conservatives in general,” mocked Donald Trump Jr. “Great work guys. Glad the “adults” are back in the WH.”

I am totally confused. What is this? We are in really deep doo doo with these people. Senile Joe Biden has no idea what is going on and a bunch of far-left progressive kids are running the show. I would lauigh at their shear stupidity, but I am too depressed thinking about how this administraion is tearing the country apart.

This PSA is proof that America is headed down the toilet. It only proves one thing, Joe Biden is cognitively challenged if he thinks this video will change anyone’s mind about getting vaccinated. What a waste of taxpayer money. Money would be much better spent if he used Hunter Biden’s sex videos to prevent STDs.

OMFG… “Cringy”? “Cringy” doesn’t begin to cover that… What an absolute embarrassment. I didn’t think anything could be worse than listening to Joe Biden trying to make some rhetorical point, but THIS makes his stumbles and bumbles and mumbles seem like the height of informed discourse. As bad as that, that… what? Presentation – or whatever you are calling it – is, what’s far worse and far scarier is the realization that this Administration actually believes that this will “speak to people”, that it is somehow persuasive… That is just incredibly distressing but, unfortunately, also typical of an Administration which has failed in absolutely every way.
