The arrogance of the absconding Texas Democrat has caused their political stunt to backfire.
It’s no longer just Fox News hammering the White House over Texas Democrat spreading COVID all over Washington DC, the rest of the press core is not amused.
Usually, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy is the only member of the media that spars with Press Secretary Jen Psaki however that has changed.
“More than 10 percent of the traveling party with these Texas Democrats now claim to have a breakthrough case. Is there any concern that this trip that was intended to advocate for voting rights is now a super spreader event in Washington,” he asked.
Psaki wasn’t happy and complained, “that’s not a characterization we’re making from here.”
Doocy asked a couple of other questions and Psaki claimed the fleeing Democrats should be honored “for standing up for voting rights, and the rights of Americans to have their voices heard at the voting booth.”
Then, in a rare moment of journalism NBC’s Kelly O’ Donnell asked for specific numbers of “breakthrough” cases inside the White House; Jen wouldn’t give an answers.
CBS News, Ed O’Keefe followed up and got Psaki to admit the Biden Administration has been covering up the amount of COVID cases occurring inside the White House.
O’KEEFE: So, I just want to back up here to this breakthrough case here at The White House.
O’KEEFE: You confirmed today there’s been a breakthrough case.
O’KEEFE: But you’re also confirming there have been other breakthrough cases.
O’KEEFE: But you had not previously disclosed that there had been.
PSAKI: And that’s correct. We had also committed during the transition that I think there’s hundreds, thousands of people who work on the federal government, as you all know. And we had committed during the transition that if it was a commissioned officer, who are the highest level ranking people in the White House and in this building here, that we would make that information publicly available. We stand by that commitment.
O’KEEFE: So if it’s anyone below that, you don’t feel the need to let people know?
PSAKI: Well again, that’s the commitment we made. I’m here talking to all of you today and sharing with you information about the individual who has — who has received a positive test yesterday.
After the exchange, ABC, Reuters, and NPR reporters failed to get Psaki to disclose just how many cases have been spreading through the White House.
