Psaki Thanks Texas Democrats Who Spread COVID-19 in Washington: “Thanks for Standing up for Voting Rights”

Jen Psaki: "Vaccines are not foolproof."


The Biden Administration does not look good right now.

After several Texas democrats boarded a private plane to Washington and caused what can only be described as a “super spreader event” after they spread the virus to several other politicians, Jen Psaki was asked about the Biden Administration’s reaction.

Her response was essentially to thank the democrats for coming.

Peter Doocy asked Psaki if the event should be considered a “super spreader event” due to the fact that 10% of the Texas dems tested positive.

“That is not a characterization we’re making here,” she responded.

She then continued:

“Vaccines are not foolproof.”

After Doocy asked about the White House’s message to the Texas democrats, Psaki simply replied:

“Our message continues to be, ‘thanks for standing up for voting rights,’”

Fox News has more on Psaki's claim that the Texas dems did not create a "super spreader event," despite evidence to the contrary:

The White House said Tuesday that they are not characterizing the trip Texas Democrats made to Washington as a "super-spreader" event, as more officials who attended the meeting test positive for COVID-19.

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy on Tuesday asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki if the event was considered a "super-spreader," saying that "more than 10%" of the traveling Texas Democrats have tested positive.

"That is not a characterization we’re making here," Psaki said, referring to the "super-spreader" term. "Vaccines are not foolproof. We know vaccines – I think these individuals have been vaccinated. That is a good sign."

The news of the breakthrough cases comes after six members of the Texas delegation tested positive for the virus after leaving the state capital and coming to Washington last week in an attempt to thwart a special legislative session where Republicans seek to pass new election reforms.

Doocy asked what the White House’s message was to Texas Democrats after the meeting.

"Our message continues to be, ‘thanks for standing up for voting rights,’" Psaki said.

Our friends at the Washington Examiner with more:

The White House declined to criticize the group of Texas Democrats who flew to Washington to thwart a voting rights bill and is now suspected of having spread the novel coronavirus on Capitol Hill and to administration aides.

The White House is not deeming the rogue lawmakers' visit a super-spreader event, according to press secretary Jen Psaki.

"Our message continues to be thanks for standing up for voting rights and the rights of Americans to have their voices heard at the voting booth, and we appreciate their efforts in that regard," she said Tuesday.

The outbreak has not altered plans for President Joe Biden to meet the coterie since no gathering is on his agenda, Psaki added.
