Jen Psaki, like the senile man her press conferences attempt to cover for, isn’t much loved by the American people. Whether she’s getting blown up on Twitter for some dumb comment or another, memed into oblivion by the creative geniuses all over the internet, or slammed by other media figures, Psaki is often under (deserved) attack.
Governor Ron DeSantis recently jumped into the fray, blasting Psaki for the lies she constantly tells while attempting to cover for Team Brandon and all of its many, many, foul-ups, both domestically and abroad.
During a press conference at Miami-Dade College, DeSantis said “The White House press secretary stands in front of that podium and lies through her teeth every single day, and usually about the state of Florida.”
His comments were a response to her claim that he and Florida had been slow to distribute Covid-19 education funds. That comment came during a press conference, with Psaki outrageously saying:
So, in terms of — an example would be Florida, where they have done little to — to distribute money to — little to no steps to distribute money to state — across the state and to school districts.
Now, part of it is you have to write a plan for how you’re going to keep schools open to get the third tranche of money, and some have been delayed in that. But, right now, that’s an example of a state that could do more.
Of course, the point is ridiculous on its face, as Florida couldn’t “do more.” It’s the stat that has probably done the best on keeping schools open during Covid, having had in-person classes since the fall of 2020.
DeSantis’s press secretary, Christina Pushaw said as much, arguing that “Florida public schools have been open to 100% of K-12 students since the Fall 2020 semester. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of many Democrat-run areas that received billions of dollars to “safely reopen schools” but are still forcing kids to do ineffective Zoom classes.”
DeSantis himself pushed back on Psaki’s claim also, saying “Are you kidding me? I remember them criticizing me when we did this almost two years ago. We were the only big state to have every school open for in person, and we did that way before Biden was even president. We didn’t need the Biden stimulus money for that.”
DeSantis is right. Psaki’s claim is just another one of her lies, one likely bred by Team Brandon’s utter incompetence in comparison to the great state of Florida, which has been run extremely well since Governor DeSantis took the reigns.
The simple fact is that, while Psaki might complain that Florida hasn’t spent enough federal money, the only reason it has spent less than the still online schools in blue states is that it didn’t need the money; Florida’s schools were already open and running well thanks to the strong, guiding hand provided by Governor DeSantis.
Looks like Biden’s lackey just got knocked down a notch yet again. How much lower can she go?
