Watch: Reporter Stumps Biden’s Press Sec With 1 Simple Question He Asked For The Second Time

White House press secretary Jen Psaki could not answer a simple question regarding vaccination centers, according to The Western Journal.

A reporter mentioned that the Federal Emergency Management Agency asked for active-duty troops to be used at vaccination centers, and he asked Psaki if the White House supports this.

“I did ask our team about this,” Psaki said. “You or someone else may have asked about this the other day.”

Psaki has received criticism for using the phrase “we’ll have to circle back” to avoid answering questions that she does not want to, or know how to, answer. The video below shows her using this exact phrase many times.

“You can’t just go and trash the press and totally lie to the American people and tell them real news is fake news,” CNN reporter Jim Acosta said.

“I don’t think the press should be trying to whip up the Biden presidency and turn it into must-see TV in a contrived way,” Acosta said.

“If that sounds like a double standard, Acosta told me it’s not partisan — it’s a matter of professional solidarity,” McKay Coppins said.

From The Western Journal:

It seems that the problem with promising to “circle back” with reporters is that they expect you to actually do it. Psaki seemed generally unprepared and surprised that this reporter would actually follow up on a question she told him to follow up on.

The entire job of the media is to report the news, which involves holding people in power accountable. The establishment media had no problem doing that with former President Donald Trump.

He went on to call the Trump presidency a “nonstop national emergency.” In the same interview, however, Acosta said the press needs to go easy on Biden.
double standard, Acosta told me it’s not partisan — it’s a matter of professional solidarity,” McKay Coppins, the author of the article, said.

Here’s a newsflash for Stelter and any other reporter with the same sentiment — every politician or spokesperson is going to claim to tell the truth. No one is going to say, “I promise to lie to you from this podium.”
