You have to give Jen Psaki some credit…
She tries really hard to cover for Joe Biden and his lies.
During CNN’s Town Hall on Thursday, Joe Biden made a fool of himself when asked about whether or not he was planning to visit the southern border.
While Biden acknowledged he should probably visit soon, he also claimed that he’d been there several times and knows it well.
During a press conference on Friday, Peter Doocy asked Jen Psaki why Biden made that claim.
Psaki’s response was pathetic.
She claimed that Joe Biden had visited the border …in 2008.
Psaki then seemed to get angry at Doocy when he asked how driving through the border 13 years ago counted.
She ignored Doocy’s questions and instead went on about the “root causes” of immigration.
Psaki tried the high and mighty act, but it failed miserably.
Doocy called her out, and her own answer made her sound as foolish as Biden himself.
Here's more on Psaki's desperate attempt to cover for Joe Biden from our friends at the Washington Examiner:
Press secretary Jen Psaki alternated between defending Biden's experience with the issue and arguing that a border "photo-op" would do little to solve the migration surge.
"Why did the president say [last night that] he has been to the border?" Fox News's Peter Doocy asked.
"He did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008," Psaki replied. "He is certainly familiar with the fact, and it stuck with him, with the fact that in El Paso, the border goes right through the center of town."
Even CNN eluded to the silliness of Psaki's respone:
President Joe Biden drove by the US-Mexico border more than a decade ago, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters Friday -- one day after the President said he knows the border "well."
"He did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008. And he is certainly familiar with the fact -- and it stuck with him -- with the fact that in El Paso, the border goes right through the center of town," Psaki said.
The President's absence from that part of the country comes as his administration is facing record numbers of migrants and border-related issues, and as the situation has drastically changed since his last trip in 2008. He has faced repeated calls from Republicans to visit the border and his administration has been questioned frequently by reporters about when he plans to go.
