White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had another brutal day at the office.
As usual, the meltdown occurred when Fox News had a chance to grill her.
And all hell broke loose when Fox News asked Jen Psaki the one question she feared the most.
Fox News correspondent Kristin Fisher pressed Psaki during Monday’s press briefing about the rapid flip flop the Biden administration executed on Friday with regard to the cap on refugees left in place by Donald Trump.
On Friday, the administration released a memo outlining why it would keep the 15,000 number set by Donald Trump in place.
Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped Biden for breaking his promise to raise the number of refugees admitted in his first year to 62,500, and within hours Biden caved to the Left and the administration released a statement announcing Biden would lift the Trump-era refugee cap number by May 15.
Fisher asked Psaki if the blowback on the Left forced Biden to give in.
“I’m still just a little bit confused about what changed between 1 p.m. on Friday and 4:30 p.m. on Friday to go from ‘We’re not raising the refugee cap,’ to ‘We are raising it by May 15,’” Fisher asked. “What changed in those three-and-a-half hours?”
Psaki offered up a muddled answer claiming there was no shift in policy because a memo announcing the refugee cap would remain in place because there was a caveat in the memo that maybe the cap could be lifted at some future point down the road.
“We never said we’re not raising the refugee cap,” Psaki shot back. “In the morning we said, actually, with the information we put out, once we reach 15,000, we will raise it. That was not accounted for.”
“So are you saying this had nothing to do with the pushbacks from Democrats on Capitol Hill?” Fisher responded.
In defiance of all logic and honesty Psaki again claimed there was no change in policy.
“I don’t think you’ve articulated to me what our change in policy was,” Psaki added that. “What was our change in policy from the morning to the afternoon?”
Psaki then demanded Fisher explain what the change in policy was, to which Fisher responded that it wasn’t her job to do.
“It is if you’re asking a question,” Psaki icily shot back.
Psaki is used to softball questions from the administration’s adoring fans in the White House press corps.
It’s usually left to Fox News and Newsmax to challenge Psaki with real questions.
And when actual reporters fire tough questions at Psaki she melts down.
