Watch: Reporter Hammers Psaki for Hiding the Border Crisis from the Media

3227



During a press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was hammered by reporters to cover up the media’s border crisis.

“Why can’t he take time to go down to the border?” one reporter began. “It’s taking a lot of resources to get him to Pennsylvania and Georgia this week, [and] the vice president out west. Why not take the time to schedule something to go there as well?”

In response, Psaki said that President Joe Biden’s focus is on “developing solutions, pushing his team, encouraging his team to develop solutions that will expedite processing at the border, that will open more facilities, that will ensure kids are treated with humanity and also treated safely.”

Without giving the Press Secretary any time to breathe, the reporter asked, “What is the status of allowing cameras into some of these facilities? We’ve been asking for weeks about whether or not the press will ever get a chance to see [them].”

Psaki responded that the administration “supports transparency” and thus has been working on “how to provide access in a way that abides by covid protocols and also protects the privacy of people who are staying in those facilities.”



Another reporter asked Psaki about the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) arrival at the border: “Does FEMA’s arrival at the border mean that the administration feels what is happening down at the border is a disaster?”

According to the Press Secretary, the FEMA’s arrival at the border was “using every lever of the federal government to help address” the huge number of people crossing the border.

The reporter again asked Psaki to clarify: “Specifically, their mission is helping people before, during, and after disasters. We’ve heard you say that it’s a problem, that it’s a challenge. Is it now a disaster?”



“I will say that FEMA is there to help ensure that the people who are coming across the border have access to HHS and our shelters—that we can swiftly place them with vetted families,” Psaki said. “They’re playing several roles there to address what we feel is a significant problem and a significant challenge. And I think we haven’t been hiding about that.”

Pissaki is a fuck up, just like drooling Joe.

She can’t hold a candle to our last Press Sec. who was prepared to the ‘nth’ degree for any question thrown at her. This one is about as competent as the Resident who’s taken over the White House. I.Q’s match too.

Our country is being invaded by hordes of hostile illegals and the military should be moved to the border to protect US citizens by closing the border and removing those who have entered illegally, including unaccompanied “minors” (ages 15-17 and likely gang members). We have to follow COVID-19 guidelines, but the invaders do not. This is treason on the part of Biden and he should be removed along with the illegals.

The Biden administration has a major crisis on their hands. FEMA was developed for a crisis mangement agency. Since this is the explanation of FEMA and they were sent to the border, it must be a crisis. Biden acted to swifly in his first days in office. That was to eliminate all of Trump’s executive orders as this was his main goal upon taking office.
