Though not anywhere near the DEFCON-1 levels seen on social media and TV on Monday afternoon after it was announced that Elon Musk had bought Twitter, a few White House reporters expressed their misgivings during the Psaki show, including one reporter who was concerned that people she deemed unseemly would be allowed “to speak” on Twitter and it would be a company gone wild without “scrutiny.”

ABC’s Cecilia Vega got things started on the topic by asking Jen Psaki if the White House had “a response to” Musk’s purchase and then fretted about whether there’s “any concern that this new agreement might have President Trump back on the platform?” This was despite the fact that Trump told Fox News Digital’s Brooke Singman that he intends to say on his own site, TRUTH Social.
