Psaki Blasted Over Misleading Attack On DeSantis: ‘Trying To Distract From Her Boss’s Failures’


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki faced backlash on Wednesday over her misleading attack on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ efforts to get his state vaccinated, with critics saying that her attack was nothing more than an attempt to deflect from President Joe Biden’s struggles to get the pandemic under control. The Daily Wire reported: Psaki commented on a clip posted by a leftist Twitter account that sought to portray DeSantis’ remarks in a negative light while excluding the overwhelming majority of what he actually said. “Joe Biden [has] taken to himself to try to single out Florida over COVID,” DeSantis says in the selectively-edited clip. “This is a guy who ran for president saying he was going to, quote, ‘shut down the virus.’ And what has he done? He’s imported more virus from around the world by having a wide open southern border.” “23% of new COVID hospitalizations in the U.S are in Florida, and their hospitals are being overwhelmed again,” Psaki claimed. “We are doing everything we can to help the people of FL, and they’re stepping up by getting vaccinated — we hope @GovRonDeSantis joins us in this fight.”
