Democrats are trying to gaslight the American people in an outrageous way.
But they went too far this time.
Jen Psaki got caught red-handed when she got hit with this one question.
Last year the Democrats were fully supportive of the “defund the police” movement that was pushed by the radical left.
When President Joe Biden was asked during the campaign whether funds should be “redirected” away from cops, he replied, “Yes, absolutely.”
However, Democrats now have to deal with the consequences of their insane police “reform” and the rising spike of crimes that they caused.
So now Democrats are trying to claim that defunding the police was really a Republican movement.
Republicans accused Democrats of trying to gaslight the American people for political gain.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki tried to claim that the Republicans are the ones trying to defund the police.
But she was unable to name a single Republican who supported the idea when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy questioned her on the subject.
“There are lots of examples of Democrats explicitly saying they want to defund the police,” Doocy said. “We’ve got Congresswoman Cori Bush, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar. Are there any examples of Republican members of Congress saying they want to defund the police?”
Psaki couldn’t come up with a single name of a Republican who wants to defund the police.
“I think most people would argue that actions are more important than words, wouldn’t you say?” Psaki said, trying to blame Republicans because they did not vote for the Democrats’ massive coronavirus spending spree bill which contained a small amount of money for the police.
“Well, to that point,” the reporter continued.
“At the time of the vote on the American Rescue Plan, you had the Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, he said he just didn’t like it because he thought it was a classic example of big-government Democratic overreach in the name of COVID relief. And then Kevin McCarthy said he thought Democrats were using coronavirus as an excuse to justify funding pet projects.” Doocy noted.
“Again, I think actions speak louder than words, Peter. So if you oppose funding for the COPS program — something that was dramatically cut by the prior administration, and many Republicans supported — and then you vote against a bill that has funding for the COPS program, we can let other people evaluate what that means. It doesn’t require them to speak to it or to shout it out; their actions speak for themselves.” Psaki said again trying to deflect the question.
