CLAY: The situation in Waukesha with the multi-murders that have taken place there. Awful for so many families in Wisconsin dealing with that abject tragedy. Also, this is evidence, part and parcel, of the lies that have been spread by Joe Biden and the fact that Joe Biden, as an honorable man, has not been willing to acknowledge that when he branded Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist, that was a lie. There’s no evidence to support it. Peter Doocy at Fox News asked Jen Psaki whether Biden would apologize for labeling Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist yesterday in the White House press briefing. This is what the first part of that interview sounded like. Listen.
PSAKI: This is about a campaign video released last year that used President Trump’s own words during a debate as he refused to condemn white supremacists and militia groups. And President Trump — as we know from history and as many of you covered — didn’t just refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage. He actively encouraged them throughout his presidency. So, uh, what we’ve seen are the tragic consequences of that, when people think it’s okay to take the law into their own hands instead of allowing law enforcement to do its job.
CLAY: This is inexcusable. It got worse, Buck. Jen Psaki then doubled down on Kyle Rittenhouse’s smears when Peter Doocy pressed her on it.
DOOCY: You’re saying it was just a campaign video’ it wasn’t. The president also gave an interview where he said Rittenhouse was “part of a militia coming out of Illinois.” “Have you ever heard of this president” referring to Trump “say one negative thing about white supremacists”? These are all things… None of this was proven in the trial. And Kyle Rittenhouse is saying that the president had actual malice in defaming his character. Is that what happened here?
PSAKI: The — the president spoke, uh, to the verdict last week. He has obviously condemned, uh, the hatred and division and violence we’ve seen around the country by groups like The Proud Boys, uh, and groups that, uh, that individual has posed in photos with. But beyond that, I’ll leave it to his comments.
BUCK: She’s just talking around the issue. She won’t actually address the fact that Biden smeared an innocent young man because his lunatic left-wing base wanted to hear it at the time. Joe Biden has always done that. This is why I don’t like this, “Oh, he’s Grandpa Joe! You can trust good old Scranton Joe.” No he’s not a good guy, folks. He’s done whatever he’s had to do for as long as he’s been in politics to be on the right side of the polling and winning and that’s it.
And right now, his polling is terrible. And one thing, Clay, I think notice how they’re always pivoting to Trump. The pivot to Trump didn’t save them in Virginia and almost didn’t save them in New Jersey. That’s part of the Democrat panic that’s happening right now. That playbook doesn’t work for them right now.
CLAY: No, I think it’s 100% right. I think that’s why they’re so panicked is because they didn’t have to stand for anything. Joe Biden’s administration hasn’t really stood for anything. They got elected on the premise that they were not Trump and that they would solve covid. Well, they’re not Trump. They certainly have not solved covid, which I think is the underlying reason why everything Joe Biden is touching now is collapsing. The public out there bought into the idea that Joe Biden would solve covid, and it just flat out hasn’t happened. In fact, more people are going to die in 2021 of covid than died in all of 2020.
