White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to blame former President Trump for the current border crisis and horrifying living conditions being experienced by detained migrants under the Biden Administration.
But even many left wing reporters in the press room, such as Yamiche Alcindor, didn’t seem to be buying Psaki’s desperate attempts to try to blame former President Trump.
As The Daily Wire reports:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed the allegedly appalling treatment of migrant children in President Joe Biden’s southern border detention facilities on former President Donald Trump as the rapidly escalating border crisis, which experts have said is President Joe Biden’s fault, continues to spiral out of control.
“There were lawyers who interviewed some children that were in facilities,” far-left reporter Yamiche Alcindor said. “The children described sleeping on the floor, being hungry, not seeing the sun for days. How is that acceptable for the Biden administration to keep children in those sorts of conditions, given the fact that you said you were an administration that was going to be more humane than the previous one?”
“We are trying to work through what was a dismantled and unprepared system because of the role of the last administration,” Psaki said. “It’s going to take some time, but we are very clear-eyed about what the problems are, and very focused on putting forward solutions.”
“And I understand the idea of these facilities not being desired by children, but children being hungry, sleeping on the floor, not being allowed outside for days at a time, why is that acceptable to go on, even for one more day?” the reporter pressed. “Why is that something that’s not being outlawed right now? How is the administration not stopping that today?”
