White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” where she offered a preview of what to expect from President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, to be delivered this Tuesday.

To close out her segment, host George Stephanopoulos brought up a stark reality that Biden is facing right now. “Finally, the president is approaching his State of the Union in a pretty difficult political position right now, 37 percent approval rating, Democrats trailing badly in the midterm polling. A majority in our recent poll out this morning even question the president’s mental capacity,” Stephanopoulos mentioned, highlighting the results of a new ABC News-Washington Post poll, which I also covered earlier.

“How is he going to turn that around on Tuesday night? And how much has his State of the Union been changed by this war in Ukraine?” Stephanopoulos asked.

Psaki seemed to have only heard the second part of the question. She not only didn’t respond to how Biden is “going to turn that around,” she didn’t acknowledge the numbers Stephanopoulos had just brought up. Instead, she decided to emphasize a sense of “optimism” in her response:

PSAKI: Well, George, I think there’s no question that, in the State of the Union, the American people and anybody watching around the world will hear the president talk about the efforts he has led over the past several months to build a global coalition to fight — fight against the autocracy and the efforts of President Putin to invade a foreign country. That is certainly something that is present in all of our lives and certainly in the president’s life in this moment….
