Kamala Harris was in attendance at the event. Jamal Simmons, her communications director, revealed on April 6 that he had COVID. According to CDC guidelines, if you have had such close contact and are up to date with all of your immunizations, you should wear a properly fitting mask for ten days.
In the Senate on Thursday, Harris was not wearing a mask when Jackson was confirmed. She was also, nevertheless, without a mask during the ceremony at the White House, which took place outside and she embraced KBJ and stood beside both her and Joe Biden during the remarks.
When the subject came up at the White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jen Psaki had a slew of excuses, including that’s why they held the event outside and that she donned a mask inside during a “meet and greet,” because she was socially distant from Biden and others. I debunked her claim by pointing out how she embraced KBJ for the cameras while being clearly within six feet of Joe Biden and others.
However, Psaki’s behavior has now been revealed to be even more deceptive than I documented last week. In fact, contrary to what Psaki stated, there was a ceremony within the White House as shown by photographs. Kamala did not wear a mask for this indoor event and was standing next to Joe and Jill Biden.
So, I’d like to ask the media: who else was there but Peter Doocy to question Psaki? She lied to you outright — there’s no debate about it. You have the physical evidence on your side: the videos and pictures, which can’t be denied. When are you going to call her out on this? These are the types of lies they’re telling because they believe they’ll get away with them, even when they’re plainly untrue. And when the press is so docile, the Democrats can get away with anything.
