Watch: 'Peppermint Psaki' Acting Like The Cartoon Character She Is

Written By BlabberBuzz | Thursday, 02 December 2021 12:00

White House press secretary Jen Psaki ripped into former White House doctor and current Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) when he accused Democrats of over-hyping the Omicron variant of COVID-19 to gain an edge in next year’s midterm elections.

“I think that the best thing we can do is not respond to conspiracy theories that are pushing — being pushed out there, including by medical doctors, that risk people’s lives, create confusion and are done for political gain,” Psaki told reporters atop Air Force One.

Jackson, 54, was the White House physician between 2013 and 2018, serving both President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. At a 2018 press briefing, he memorably claimed that Trump’s genes are so good that he “might live to be 200” if he had a better diet.

Since January, Jackson has represented a northern Texas House district that includes the state’s panhandle. He linked the Omicron variant to the midterms in a series of tweets over the past week.

“Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant! They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election – but we’re not going to let them!” Jackson tweeted out on Saturday.

In two subsequent tweets, Jackson made clear the theory wasn’t an off-the-cuff remark.

“From everything we’ve seen, the Omicron variant doesn’t seem like it will be a huge deal for us. There’s NO reason to panic, but [Dr. Anthony] Fauci & Democrats are framing this like it’s the end of the world. They want to upend our election process, and this is their excuse!” Jackson wrote Monday.

In a separate Monday tweet, Jackson expressed, “Weird that ‘Mr. Science’ Dr. Fauci & Democrats have been SILENT about COVID flooding across our border. Don’t they want to ‘stop the spread’ like they claim? There’s no science behind this, just more excuses to expand lockdowns, mandates, and mail-in ballots. It’s about CONTROL!”

Experts believe that the Omicron variant, first discovered by South African scientists, may be more contagious than previous versions of COVID-19 due to a high number of mutations.

President Biden has banned travel to the U.S. by non-Americans from eight southern African countries and has urged the public not to “panic” but to instead take precautions such as wearing masks indoors. He also cited the Omicron variant in efforts to encourage people to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — including booster shots.

The 2022 midterm elections could be a defeat for Biden’s party. An ABC News/Washington Post poll released earlier this month found Republicans had a 10 percentage-point lead on the generic House ballot, the most considerable GOP advantage detected by the organizations since 1981.
