Jen Psaki Schools Peter Doocy For Making A False Equivalency Between Immigration And Public Health

Once again Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to take Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, and when she was finished, Doocy was babbling like a four-year-old.

The confrontation came when Doocy asked about foreign nationals coming into the United States and whether or not they are being asked to provide evidence they don’t have COVID-19 or have been vaccinated:

“Is someone asking the foreign nationals for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test?”

Psaki began to respond:

“Well, first of all, I can walk you through the steps.”

Doocy interrupted:

“That’s the policy for people who fly into the country. So why if somebody walks into the country right across the river, does somebody ask them to see their vaccination card?”

The press secretary hit Doocy with both barrels:

“Let me explain to you again, Peter, how the process works, as the individuals come across the border and assessed if they have symptoms, and if they have symptoms they are quarantined. That is the process. They are not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time.”

And yet, Doocy still couldn’t comprehend what he’d just been told:

“But they’re here. What’s the difference?”

Clearly annoyed by Doocy’s inability to grasp what she was saying, Psaki told him:

“It’s not the same thing. These are individuals — as we’ve noted and has been discussed — we are expelling individuals based on Title 42 because of Covid, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering, posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves.

“So those are the policies that we’ve put in place, because the CDC continues to recommend Title 42 be in place, given we’re facing a global pandemic.”

Apparently, Peter Doocy hasn’t bothered to look at today’s news and see that the United States is expelling Haitian refugees who are seeking to come into the country at this time. But what can be done about the unvaccinated Americans who refuse to do their part and get the shot? What can we do about Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News and their bullshit lies/conspiracy theories about the COVID vaccine?

Doocy works at Fox, so it’s safe to bet he’s been vaccinated because Fox has a vaccine mandate. How’s that for hypocrisy?
