OMG, this was brilliant!
If you can’t see it, a reporter (I don’t know which outlet) asked,
“A lot of Americans are saying that, you know, the surges are happening under President Biden's watch, after he reversed some previous policies. Does the administration take any accountability for what's happening?”
Jen Psaki asked, “Who are the Americans?”
The reporter stuttered at being challenged, and then admitted it was Donald Trump.
Psaki let her have it. “We don't take our advice or counsel from former President Trump on immigration policy which was not only inhumane, but ineffective over the last four years. We're going to chart our own path forward, and that includes treating children with humanity and respect and ensuring they're safe when they cross our borders.”
Trump’s policy of ripping children away from their parents, putting them in cages, and losing them is one of the darkest chapters in American history. The children suffered unspeakable horror, and the policy was instituted by white supremacist Stephen Miller. This policy alone is why I can never respect anyone who tells me they voted for Trump, no matter their excuse.
Psaki destroyed this reporter’s biased question, but at the same time, wasn’t nasty or personal about it. Biden really is picking the cream of the crop, which is a refreshing change from Trump’s people whom he always had to scrape from the bottom of the barrel because no one of any quality wanted to work for him.
Trump must have felt that burn all the way in Florida. Although I guess this is going to make things very awkward around the White House, now that Trump was inaugurated Thursday.
