Fox News reporter Peter Doocy put Jen Psaki on the hot seat. How?
He did this by asking a simple question regarding the deployment of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at the border.
During the White House press briefing, Doocy questioned Psaki on whether or not FEMA’s involvement constitutes the situation at the border as “a disaster.” After all, FEMA implies an “emergency”.
“Does FEMA’s arrival at the border mean that the administration feels what is happening down at the border is a disaster?” Doocy began.
“I know that we always get into the fun of labels around here. But I would say our focus is on solutions, and this is one of the steps that the President felt would help not become a final solution, but help expedite processing, help ensure that people who are coming across the border have access to health and medical care,” Psaki responded. “Clearly, the numbers are enormous. This is a big challenge. And it certainly is a reflection of using every lever of the federal government to help address that.”
As I mentioned earlier and Doocy pointed out, FEMA’s mission is to help people “before, during, and after disasters.”
I particularly loved how he walked Psaki down the plank, as he noted her previous comments on the definite border disaster.
Doocy reminded her of her words, calling the border situation “a problem” and “a challenge,” before asking, “is it now a disaster?”
In an attempt to throw people off the topic at hand, Psaki complimented Doocy on his mask. Despite the obvious delay tactic, Psaki found herself in the normal territory, where Leftism gets exposed.
She commented that “FEMA is there to help ensure people who are at the border” have access to shelters and can swiftly be placed with “vetted families,” and a host of other non-answers to the questions at hand.
“They are playing a number of 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,” said Psaki.
Interestingly, the Biden bandits are doing exactly that- hiding information. Just like Cuomo, they won’t reveal the new numbers or the bad conditions. And with the disaster mounting, Doocy asked another simple question
“DHS said that the FEMA plan for 90 days would be to receive, shelter, and transfer unaccompanied children. Does that mean that the federal government now is moving beyond the message of the last couple of weeks, which was now is not the time to come?” Doocy asked.
Keep in mind that Biden and other Leftists begged for this eventuality. They opened America’s borders against all applicable law. Now they must deal with the consequences.
Psaki responded to Doocy:
“No, we are doing both, and it’s a complicated problem. No doubt about it. We are sending the message clearly in the region. Now is not the time to come. But also we want to ensure that people are treated with humanity who are children, who were unaccompanied children, that’s who we are as a country, and so we are doing both,”
Psaki says the Biden Administration is sending a clear message about the border: “Now is not the time to come.”
I’m not sure she meant to spill those beans. The border is now an emergency. The Biden freak show is divulging its utter incompetence and there isn’t enough duct tape to hold it together.
The longer Psaki stands at the podium to answer questions, the more their tall tales and concealment are revealed. She already can’t keep track of them. Certainly, Joe can’t. But Peter Doocy can. His methodically asked questions peel back the layers of the onion to reveal the big lies wherein he can access the truth – for all of us.
The border is a clusterf*ck of the highest order. All because Democrats cheated to put a demented clown in office.
