She’s lost all her marbles.
According to the Daily Caller, White House press secretary Jen Psaki attacked a reporter after she was asked about the detention facilities at the southern U.S. border.
NBC reporter Kristen Welker asked about Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s criticism of detention facilities for children.
“Well first I can’t speak to what ‘this’ is that’s being referred to,” Psaki responded.
“The children in these detention facilities,” Welker clarified.
“Well that’s not what’s happening … what is happening now is there are children fleeing prosecution, fleeing threats in their own countries, traveling on their own, unaccompanied to the border,” Psaki said. “And our focus is on approaching this from the view of humanity and with safety in mind, and so the steps that we have taken is they are, of course, processed as quickly as possible, ideally with a maximum of three days, through CBP. Then they’re transferred to facilities overseen by HHS.”
“How do you respond to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, though? Because she sees these images and it’s not okay from her perspective,” Welker asked.“Well look, we will work, of course with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez on a range of issues, and we look forward to doing that. What I’m conveying from here is what the actual circumstances on the ground, and the tough choice that we have had to make. There are only a couple of options here,” Psaki responded.
