Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy pushed back on White House press secretary Jen Psaki when she laughed at one of his questions.
“You’ve been telling migrants from right there, for a month now … that now is not the time to come, but they are coming in bigger numbers every day. So, do you have a messaging problem?” Doocy asked.
Psaki took an aim and the Trump administration: “In the last administration we had a morality problem and children were being pulled from the arms of their parents, and kids were being sent back on a treacherous journey,” Psaki said.
“Well since the last administration is gone — tomorrow is 50 days of Biden — there are migrants showing up wearing T-shirts that say, ‘Biden, please let us in.’ And candidate Biden is the one who said, ‘I would end this notion for the first time in history that people seeking asylum have to be in squalor on the other side of the river.’ Why doesn’t he come out and just say, ‘Now is not the time?’”
“The CDC is saying, ‘Schools, you can be at — every school can be at full capacity,’ as you know —” Doocy protested.
Psaki immediately pushed back on Doocy’s point, asking whether he had a specific school to hold up as an example, noting that to reopen, the CDC had said there were a series of mitigation efforts that needed to be implemented before schools could safely open.
Doocy pointed out that very few schools are operating at full capacity and asked, “Have the Border Patrol unions and the HHS unions been easier to work with than the teachers’ unions?”
“I think that’s a little bit of mixing different circumstances,” Psaki replied, she appeared to laugh at that.
Doocy replied, “It’s children all in tight quarters … that’s not funny,”
She also said that some schools were waiting for funding, which she said would be on the way after President Joe Biden signed the COVID-19 relief legislation later in the week.
