Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Jen Psaki tweets about NFL games after recommending Dems deal with failed voting-rights bill by blowing off steam for a weekend”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

After telling Democrats to take the weekend off and de-stress, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki seemed to follow her own advice, sending posts about the weekend's NFL playoff games.

In an interview Friday with ABC News, Psaki addressed the failure of Democrats to pass a bill voting-rights, which failed to pass the Senate because of a GOP filibuster.

"My advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off: feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita, do whatever you need to do this weekend and then wake up on Monday morning, we gotta keep fighting," Psaki told ABC. 

The comments attracted criticism from some who suggested it trivialized the scale and consequences of the defeat.

In tweets over the weekend, Psaki steered clear of politics, instead focussing on the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, and particularly the game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.
