Hysterical: Peter Doocy's Question Sends 'Peppermint Psaki' Into Ridiculous Rant

Written By BlabberBuzz | Tuesday, 30 November 2021 22:45

White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced that President Joe Biden was referring to former President Donald Trump's tweets when he named Trump a "xenophobic" on the heels of Trump implementing the travel ban last year with China.

"What the president was critical of was the way that the former president put out, I believe, a xenophobic tweet and what he called the coronavirus and who he directed it at," Psaki announced at Monday's press briefing. "The president has not been critical of travel restrictions, we have put those in place ourselves in the spring," she went on.

Psaki was reacting to Fox News' Peter Doocy, who asked her why the President was spotted maskless while out shopping in Nantucket this weekend after Biden announced Monday that Americans could defend themselves from Omicron from wearing masks inside and getting vaccinated.

"The president is somebody who follows the recommendations and the advice of the CDC," Psaki announced. "I don't know what the circumstances were at that particular moment."

Doocy first pounced on remarks Biden made in the past, which could make him look like a fraud for his choice this weekend to block entry to most travelers from eight African nations, where the new Omicron COVID-19 variant is prevalent.

On the same day Trump declared he was banning travel from China in January 2020, Biden arrived at an Iowa campaign stop and spoke of Trump's "hysterical xenophobia" and "fear mongering."

Biden took to the stage roughly 15 minutes after the ban was declared, with his campaign later denying he was linking the two things.

In an op-ed several days earlier, Biden knocked Trump's response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak when Biden was Vice President.

"I remember how Trump sought to stoke fear and stigma during the 2014 Ebola epidemic," Biden wrote for USA Today, continuing that Trump wrongfully supported "reactionary travel bans that would only have made things worse."

Back then, Trump had tweeted, "close down the flights from Ebola-infected areas right now."

During the campaign, Trump went after Biden many times for saying that it was racist to cut off travel with China throughout the beginning of the pandemic.

"When I closed he said I should not have closed," Trump stated when the two men debated each other in October 2020. "He said this is a terrible thing, you are a xenophobe, I think he called me racist. Now he says I should have closed it earlier."

Biden responded by stating that Trump had taken the jab out of context.

"I did not say either of those things," Biden announced. "I talked about his xenophobia in a different context, not about closing the border to Chinese coming to the United States."
