(FreedomBeacon.com)- When she’s not telling people she’ll “circle back,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is just flat-out lying. And she can’t seem to stop doing it.
Last week, Psaki reiterated her inaccurate and baseless claim that Republicans have long wanted to defund the police – despite Republicans spending the entirety of 2020 fighting back against Democrat pushes to defund and “reimagine” the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Psaki told the inexcusable and shocking lie on Wednesday and failed to name a single Republican politician, activist, or commentator who has ever supported defunding the police.
Wouldn’t you think that if she believed it to be true, she’d have at least one example that proves it?
In the clip below, you’ll see Fox News’ Peter Doocy calling Psaki out, noting that she believes Republicans want to defund the police, and asking for an example.
He explained how Psaki based her comments around Republican opposition to the “American Rescue Plan” – Biden’s hugely expensive COVID-19 response that contained a multitude of policy directives and funding for non-COVID-related projects.
“Which Republican ever said that they did not like the American Rescue Plan because they wanted to defund the police?” Doocy asked.

Psaki responded by saying that the president ran and won more votes than any candidate in history (does anyone believe that?) on a platform of boosting funding for law enforcement, after Republicans spent decades trying to cut the cops program.
Can you believe this woman?
Psaki’s tactic is clinging on to the vaguest semblance of truth and extrapolating to the point that the statement becomes a lie.
Meanwhile, Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman are actively supporting defunding the police.

In this instance, AOC is being more honest…
