Welcome to the Twilight Zone – Jen Psaki Makes Most RIDICULOUS Claim of the Century (VIDEO)
Take a trip with me back in time. Back in time to a place and an era where liberals incited violence in major cities across the country, insulted police, and even killed some of them.
The time is the year 2020 and the place is every major city.
Alright, so we all know that the liberals have been calling to “Defund the Police”. This had become part of their platform even. Republicans have been vehemently against this because, well…it’s stupid and will lead to chaos and anarchy.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made the ridiculously stupid claim that Republicans actually wanted to defund the police.
Well, top-notch reporter Peter Doocy called her out on it:
“You mentioned, at the last briefing, that you think Republicans wanted to defund the police because they did not support the American Rescue Plan. Which Republican ever said that they did not like the American Rescue Plan because they wanted to defund the police?”
Psaki responded with a non-answer, “Well, first, let me just note that the president ran and won the most votes of any candidate in history on a platform of boosting funding for law enforcement after Republicans spent decades trying to cut the COPS program — there’s record of that; that doesn’t require anyone having new comments — and then also stood in the way of crucial funding needed to prevent the laying off of police officers as crimes increased. That’s a simple statement of fact.”
Not relenting, Doocy fired right back giving examples of Democrats who openly said they wanted to defund the police, “I understand what you’re saying there; however, there are lots of examples of Democrats explicitly saying they want to defund the police. We’ve got Congresswoman Cori Bush, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar. Are there any examples of Republican members of Congress saying they want to defund the police?”
She ultimately never gave an answer but only side-stepped the question by claiming actions are louder than words, but did mention any actions of any Republican trying to defund the police.
Unreal gaslighting as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubles down on the insane notion that it's Republicans and not Democrats who have and continue to want to defund the police.
