Another day, another asinine press conference from Ms. Psaki, who is the ultimate Biden cheerleader. In fact, she is such a Biden cheerleader that she speaks exactly the same way that the rest of the leftists speak: in circles, in word salad, in generalities, and, in short, in everything but the truth.
Needless to say, transparency flies out the window whenever Ms. Psaki ascends to the podium and proceeds to provide exactly no insight into what’s really going on. Even worse, she often makes statements that are not even true, with the most blatant example being the “miscommunication” regarding Biden’s “bold and ambitious” one day per week school reopening policy.
While it was difficult enough to hear about her bending over backwards to justify the insanity of the ultra-leftist administration, her hypocrisy really reached mind-boggling levels when defending Biden’s use of … kids in cages, or, in the politically correct terminology, “facilities.” Facilities that bear a striking resemblance to those utilized by Trump (and, initially, Obama).
Remember when Biden was rattling on and on about Trump and his “cages,” despite Mr. Obama being the one to take advantage of such “cages” himself? Well, someone should remind Mr. Biden of what he said and supported before, given his statement below.
“Under Trump, there have been horrifying scenes at the border of kids being kept in cages, tear-gassing asylum seekers, ripping children from their mothers’ arms.” [Source: Fox News]
Just lay on the melodrama, Biden. Hint: You’re not writing some morbid, dystopian novel, you’re supposedly representing Americans. And not representing them very well, at that.
Needless to say, his statement is all the more ridiculous considering what he is doing now, which is … exactly what Trump began doing. And, more insanely, Psaki actually defends this action, which truly buggers belief.
“This is not kids being kept in cages … This is a facility that was opened that is going to follow the same standards as other HHS facilities. It is not a replication. Certainly not … That’s never our intention—of replicating immigration policies of the past administration.” [Source: Fox News]
Never your “intention,” huh? Well, maybe careless drivers don’t have the “intention” to accidentally hit someone either, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t. In fact, Psaki is even more disingenuous by insisting that it isn’t about “kids being kept in cages,” though she failed to provide more detail, as usual.
Instead, she claims that the administration will not “expel” children and teenagres at the border.
“But we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border … That would be inhumane. That is not what we are going to do here as an administration. We need to find places that are safe and mental services consistent with their best interests.” [Source: Fox News]
Did it ever occur to Psaki that perhaps “unaccompanied minors” should not even be at the border wall? How is it “humane” for that situation to occur in the first place?
And “mental services consistent with their best interests?! What?! When Americans can’t even get reasonably priced healthcare? The insanity of it all!
“This is our effort to ensure that kids are treated, or not in close proximity, and that we are abiding by the health and safety standards that the government has set out.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, it is also a clear effort to ensure that Americans are treated poorly while illegal immigrants apparently receive better treatment, including the aforementioned “mental health services” handed to them on a silver platter.
Frankly, Americans are owed some “mental health services” after barely a month of this incompetent administration.
Most ironically of all, Trump signed an order in 2018 to assure that children and their families would not be separated at the border, though Biden promptly rescinded the order
“Consistent with this longstanding principle of making individualized assessments in criminal cases, I am rescinding — effective immediately — the policy directive.” [Source: Fox News]
The reason for “immediately rescinding?” Nothing, aside from the fact it was a Trump directive.
Sad day when an entire political party allows out of control hatred to drag America further and further downwards …
