White House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared on ABC News’ “This Week” and dodged questions about whether Joe Biden still believes that NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo represents the “gold standard” for responding to the Coronavirus pandemic amid Cuomo’s COVID Coverup over nursing home deaths in New York.
The FBI and the US attorney in Brooklyn are investigating the Cuomo administration amid revelations it withheld the total number of nursing home residents who died from coronavirus because of fears the Trump administration would retaliate politically.
The president described Cuomo as “sort of the gold standard” last spring when the governor was being lauded for his daily televised briefings on how the state was dealing with COVID-19.
When ABC News’ “This Week” host Jon Karl asked Psaki if Biden still held that view Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary showed why…
Jen Psaki Is The Democrats Latest Dodgeball Champion
“We work with Gov. Cuomo just like we work with governors across the country,” said Psaki, not answering the question, but noting that Cuomo is the chair of the National Governors Association.
He plays an important role in ensuring that we’re coordinating closely in getting assistance out to people in his state and to states across the country and we’ll continue to do that.
And there are, of course, will be a process. There are investigations. We’ll leave that to others to determine — the appropriate law enforcement authorities to determine how that path is going to move as we look forward,”
Karl attempted to press Jen Psaki to answer his question, but once again she did the Biden Administration mamba:
“Well, it doesn’t always have to be a yes or no answer, Jon. I think the president is focused on his goals, his objectives as president of the United States. He’s going to continue to work with Gov. Cuomo, just like he’ll continue to work with governors across the country.
And I’m not here to give new labels or names from the president. I’m here to communicate with you about what our focuses are and what his objectives are as president.”
I guess we have our answer as what Joe Biden meant when he said his administration would always tell the truth, even if it’s painful to do so.
Jen Psaki Not Giving A Straight Answer About Andrew Cuomo Isn’t Shocking
When Andrew Cuomo’s lie was exposed roughly two weeks ago by the New York Post bombshell Cuomo Coverup report.
Jen Psaki during a White House Press briefing dodged a similar question when asked about New York Governor Cuomo undercounting his state’s nursing home deaths
Worse, she wouldn’t even address Andrew Cuomo blatantly covering up the number of elderly New Yorkers who tragically died due to his insidious order.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Is Abhorrent
But we have seen Jen Psaki during many of her White House Press Briefings hysterically lecturing media reporters on her not being able to answer their questions with a yes or no.
And when I say hysterically.
I mean how many times have we witness then-California Senator, now Vice President Kamala Harris screeching at a witness testifying during a Senate committee hearing after she asked a loaded question, “Just Answer “Yes” or “No”!
Just go back and watch Kamala Harris grilling then-Supreme Court judicial Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
