White House deputy communications director Kate Berner called out Politico on Thursday for not touting the Biden administration’s “historic” accomplishments enough.

After Politico reporter Adam Cancryn shared his “West Wing Playbook” newsletter, Berner responded with a dismissive tweet. She accused the outlet of not touting the Biden administration’s “historic” victories enough with a jab at the ballot itself.

“A historic confirmation – Judge Jackson is Judge Jackson. A historic low for unemployment claims. A historic international effort to relieve Putin’s price hike. I find no coverage of any of this in a news report that claims to report on the WH,” Berner tweeted with a puzzled emoji.
