Sen Cruz Tears Into Psaki's Shameless Gaslighting
The Biden Administration has lied since the beginning. There are still questions about the validity of the election results. So it's no wonder they found themselves B.S. Artist Jennifer Psaki. Psaki is constantly manipulating the truth, refusing to answer the hard questions. So to aid the Biden campaign she has come up with this reality distorting claim. She claims it was the GOP that defunded the police...Senator Cruz couldn't take this blatant lie sitting down and called out her out in a recent OP-Ed.
"When a White House press secretary gives a press briefing, you expect spin. You expect some verbal bobbing and weaving if the topic is unflattering to the administration. But when Jen Psaki blamed Republicans for defunding the police last week, it wasn’t spin – it was gaslighting.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki about senior adviser to the president Cedric Richmond’s claim that Republicans have defunded the police by not voting to pass Biden’s American Rescue Plan. Psaki defended Richmond, doubling down on the idea that Republicans, and not Democrats, have defunded the police.
That’s like an arsonist showing up as the fire’s blazing and blaming the firemen; it’s the like the Chinese Communist Party blaming America for the Wuhan virus; it’s like O.J. saying he’s going to help find the real killer. It’s absurd, it’s ridiculous, and Democrats know it."
"Democrats have called to defund the police for over a year and have been successful in doing it."
"Democrat-led city councils all over the country have voted to defund the police. Last year, the Los Angeles city council cut the police budget by $150 million, Portland cut $15 million from its police budget, Minneapolis cut $8 million from its police budget, and Seattle cut its police budget by 18%.
Now, those Democrat-led cities are reaping what they sowed – crime rates are skyrocketing. The New York Times has reported that homicides in Los Angeles increased 36%, more than 82% in Portland, and almost 72% in Minneapolis last year, and it looks like those homicide spikes will continue this year."
Anyone with a pulse and common sense knows that BLM and Dems protested to defund the police. Anyone that tuned in to Fox, or any form of media that isn't fake, could easily see last summer that it was the Dems that defunded the police. I can't believe Psaki actually said the GOP defunded the police with a straight face.
