Peter Doocy was back in the White House Press Room ending his quarantine after catching the COVID-19 virus. After some (perhaps insincere) welcome-back comments from White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Doocy posed some tough questions. He threw hardballs, but got marshmallows in return.
Doocy ran train on Psaki as he asked great question after great question that elicited responses that ranged from bragging to downright obfuscation from the chief White House spokesperson.
For example, President Biden predicted a winter of death and disease because of COVID. Where are all the free COVID tests promised by the administration? Why won’t they be ready until after the predicted Omicron surge?
Psaki tried to bury the question with statistics on the millions of tests already administered, and the great job the Postal Service did in delivering Christmas packages.
Doocy knows that liberals like to talk about science a lot, so he wanted to know how he–and the Press Secretary, by the way–got COVID after being fully vaccinated.
The answer was to the effect that, well, you didn’t get all that sick, and if you hadn’t been vaccinated, you might have died.
To top off the six minutes of Jen Psaki’s ordeal, Doocy asked her opinion on Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor’s ridiculous claim that there were 100,000 children hospitalized because of COVID.
Psaki wisely ducked that one with waffle words about how OSHA should be able to take over American businesses with vaccine mandates. Psaki hoped that the Supreme Court would allow that, no matter what ridiculous ideas float around those hallowed halls.
