White House Shamelessly Deflects When It Comes to COVID Misinfo From Biden and Sotomayor

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had a tough time today when she got some laser-focused questions on COVID from Fox’s Peter Doocy that exposed the Biden administration’s erroneous comments and failed policies.


Doocy put her and Joe Biden on the spot with a question that deserves an answer: Why does Biden keep calling COVID a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” when the vaccinated can both get it and spread it? When Biden says that constantly, he is spreading misinformation and potentially deceiving people.

Psaki’s response was a non-answer, never addressing the actual question. She doesn’t explain why he keeps spreading misinformation. Instead, she says that the virus may be felt more severely in the unvaccinated. That doesn’t address the transmission. “Breakthrough cases?” Vaccinated people are getting it right and left. You even had Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announce she had it yesterday, despite being vaxxed and boosted. Meanwhile, Biden and Democrats — rather than treating this with sense — have whipped people on the left into a frenzy, demonizing the unvaccinated, rather than treating COVID like the virus it is. The fact is anyone can get it, including the vaccinated.

Then Doocy asked her what happened to the testing — why was it so unavailable when they’d promised to have it for Americans when Joe Biden himself spoke, threatening a “winter of severe illness and death.” They rejected a plan for the holidays. Now Doocy makes the good point that they aren’t going to have it for weeks, likely after the Omicron surge has died down. She said there was a surge as though they couldn’t have anticipated that. But they were warned there was going to be a surge, hence the plan they were offered.


They claim that they’re against COVID misinformation yet they’ve been some of the biggest purveyors of misinformation that there are. Doocy asked what was the White House’s comment on the misinformation being spread by Justice Sonia Sotomayor about the COVID effect on children. Sotomayor claimed that there were 100,000 children in serious condition with many on ventilators, a claim that is just demonstrably untrue. It is incredibly concerning that Sotomayor would spout that. But the White House refused to comment on what she said.

Finally, I’d like to note what Joe Biden said on Dec. 23. He said that tests were being made and would be out at the beginning of January.


That’s a flat-out lie, as they hadn’t even signed the contracts yet when he said that. While some contracts have been signed now, they still haven’t signed all of them according to Fox’s Peter Doocy today. The tests are not anticipated for weeks yet. It’s already the beginning of January, Joe. Where are the tests? By the time they come in, the surge will be done.
