Doocy requested, “Is somebody asking the overseas nationals for proof of vaccination or a unfavorable COVID check?”
Psaki began to reply, “Effectively, initially, I can stroll you thru the steps.”
Doocy interrupted, “That’s the coverage for folks who fly, so if somebody walks throughout the river, does somebody ask to see their vaccination card.”
Psaki resumed, “Let me clarify to you once more, Peter, how the method works, because the people come throughout the border and assessed if they’ve signs, and if they’ve signs they’re quarantined. That’s the method. They aren’t intending to remain right here for a prolonged time period.
Doocy, clearly not getting it, requested, “What’s the distinction?”
Psaki tried to elucidate to Lil’ Pete, seemingly for the millionth time, “It isn’t the identical factor. These are people we famous and mentioned we’re expelling people based mostly on Title 42, particularly due to COVID, and we wish to forestall a situation the place giant variety of individuals are gathering and posing a risk to the neighborhood and the migrants themselves. These are the insurance policies we put in place largely as a result of once more the CDC recommends Title 42.”
Jen Psaki Noticed What Peter Doocy Was Making an attempt To Do And Stopped Him
Peter Doocy implied that Haitian migrants get handled higher and have fewer COVID restrictions on them than the unvaccinated (principally Republicans).
Doocy’s level was not correct as a result of the US is deporting Haitian migrants. On the similar time, the unvaccinated get to remain in the US whereas whining about perhaps having to point out proof of vaccination or a COVID check to go to a restaurant, live performance, or be in giant teams of individuals.
These two conditions are usually not the identical, and Jen Psaki wasn’t about to let Peter Doocy smear President Biden with such an absurd false equivalency.
