Jen Psaki Forced to Try and Clean Up Mess Made by Biden During Town Hall
I can just imagine how White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki must feel each time that Joe Biden gets in front of a microphone.
She is the one who is forced to bat clean-up and do damage control after Biden leaves behind a verbal disaster.
On Thursday last week during the CNN town hall, Biden said that he has been to the border and knows it well.
Last night, Biden admitted "I guess I should go down" to the southern border. There is a humanitarian & national security crisis raging at the border with a record-high level of illegal immigrants surging into our nation, but Biden & "Border Czar" Harris seem unconcerned. pic.twitter.com/muOIJUlzk9

The next day, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted Jen Psaki on Biden’s statement and his supposed border visit, “Why did President Biden say he has been to the border?”
The response that Psaki gave is true, but ridiculous, “Well, Peter, as you may have seen, there’s been reporting that he did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008, and he is certainly familiar with the fact – and it has stuck with him – with the fact in El Paso, the border goes right through the center of town.”

So Biden went there 13 years ago, so he knows how it is now? When I visited my home town after being gone for 13 years it looks completely different. Now with the crisis the way that it is, he thinks he knows how it is even though this is coming two presidents later and under different circumstances? What a joke!
On top of that, notice that Psaki said, “…there’s been reporting that he did drive though…” Reporting doesn’t mean he did. In fact, Mike Memoli who apparently was there for this visit said that they landed in El Paso, drove an hour to Mesilla, NM, (which is about 35 miles from the border) then went back to El Paso. He said that there was no specific border-related stop. So this too is a lie from the Biden regime. So much for being the most transparent and ethical administration in history. It’s just a lie. It’s only words that they regurgitate. There is no truth in their mouths.
The schedule called for wheels down around noon, an hour drive to Mesilla, NM, and later back to El Paso five hours later.
Other than a motorcade ride at times near the border, there was no specific border-related stop
