So much for transparency…
Press Secretary Jen Psaki took issue with a reporter asking that the Biden Administration be transparent in regards to sharing information about vaccinated White House staffers who have tested positive with Covid-19.
She refused to give any numbers or percentages of those who have been vaccinated, instead only giving this vague statement:
“We’re in a very different place than we were six to seven months ago.”
The reporter then pressed further, asking why the administration won’t just provide the number.
The reporter then asked: “Are you trying to hide something?”
“No, but what is the — why do you need to have that information?”
Here's Newsmax with more on the biden Administration's refusal for transparency:
White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday asked why reporters needed to know how many vaccinated White House staffers had contracted COVID-19.
''Why do you need to have that information?'' she asked a reporter who pressed her for the answer.
''Transparency, interests of the public, to have a better understanding of how breakthrough cases work here in the White House,'' the reporter replied.
Psaki then informed the reporter that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was responsible for ''a great deal of tracking'' before moving on.
The report comes a day after President Joe Biden made misleading statements in a CNN town hall. He claimed that vaccinated people would not have to be hospitalized or placed in an intensive care unit, and they would not die.
In another exchange, Biden said that even if vaccinated people do "catch the virus," they are "not likely to get sick."
In a third exchange, he said vaccines ''cover'' the highly contagious Delta variant.
''You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations,'' he said.
We can't expect transparency from the Biden Administration when Joe Biden himself keeps lying about it and getting caught in those lies...
Even Psaki can't cover for Biden's lies.
They're very clearly making everything up on the fly..
Unfortunately, Biden cannot think on his feet.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki took issue with a reporter who pressed the administration to be transparent with what was going on inside in the White House related to employees who test positive for COVID-19 and the number of employees who have been vaccinated.
Psaki refused to say the percentage of employees who have been vaccinated for COVID-19 and suggested that the administration did not need to be transparent about the number of “breakthrough cases” they have had because “we’re in a very different place than we were six to seven months ago.”
“But why not just provide the number?” the reporter pressed. “Are you trying to hide something?”
“No, but what is the — why do you need to have that information?” Psaki fired back.
“It’s a case of transparency, in the interest of the public, knowing — having a better understanding of how breakthrough cases work here in the White House,” the reporter responded.
