OUCH! Doocy Caught Psaki In A LIE And Made Her EAT It
The White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, is going to be feeling these burns for a few days, at least. Fox News WH Correspondent Peter Doocy came to the presser prepared. He set Psaki up with questions he already had the answers to which backed Psaki into a corner0151Where she lied.
Doocy was all too happy to point out her 'mistake'.
Doocy was asking how many Haitians were being released into the United States. Psaki tried to push the question off to the DHS chief but the reporter answered for her...
Doocy: "You’re telling us that the DHS chief has the most recent numbers about how many of these Haitians under the bridge have been sent back and how many have been released into the U.S. The DHS chief is telling us that he doesn’t know. So, who else can we ask?"
MS. PSAKI: "You can certainly ask the Department of Homeland Security. I am confident, Peter —
Doocy: "The chief says he doesn’t know."
MS. PSAKI: "I am confident he wanted to have the most up-to-date numbers, and we will venture to get you those, I promise you, this afternoon."
Doocy: "Is this an issue of not knowing, or is this an issue of a lot more people are being released into the U.S. than are being sent out?"
MS. PSAKI: "That is certainly not the issue. First, I think it’s important to reiterate what I conveyed earlier about what the actual process is: Individuals are expelled under Title 42. If they can’t be expelled under Title 42, they are put into a removal process. If they’re put into a removal process, they’re either transported to an ICE facility or released with a legal document. That legal document includes fingerprints, photos, phone numbers, an address in the United States, and a background check. That’s the process that transpires. That’s a part of our immigration process, regardless of where you’re coming from."
Doocy: "And just because you keep using Title 42 to defend this administration’s immigration policies: That is a Trump-era regulation. You guys came in saying that the Trump-era immigration policy was very inhumane."
MS. PSAKI: "Title 42 is not an immigration policy; it is a — it is a health authority because we’re in the middle of a pandemic. The Trump administration's approach to immigration was inhumane and was immoral. That’s why we need to put a new policy in place, and we need Congress to pass that policy."
The 'inhumane' policies of Trump kept immigrants south of the border unless they had proper documentation to enter. The Biden administration's policy seems to be 'if it fits it sits'—Where they seem hell-bent to stuff as many people into these makeshift facilities as possible. In the midst of a pandemic, might I add?
Tell me again who's inhumane?
To add to her humiliation, Doocy asked Psaki how many times (in his life) that Biden has visited the border. Psaki tried to say she would make a list of all the times Biden has gone. That's when Doocy swooped in and cut her off saying they would not find any record of him ever visiting the southern border.
The White House Press Sec was visibly shocked.
