“Absolutely Shameless”: WH Press Secretary Blames REPUBLICANS For Defunding Police

Argues that lack of support for COVID relief bill equates to desire to defund law enforcement.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki drew ire Monday by suggesting that the defund the police movement is being driven by Republicans, rather than extremist Democrats.

In another exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, Psaki argued that the lack of support on the right for Biden’s massive pork filled COVID relief bill equates to wanting to defund law enforcement.

Republicans didn’t vote for the bill because it had nothing to do with COVID and everything to do with more government control. 

Psaki used the fact that there was some slated funding for ‘community policing’ in the bill to argue that Republicans are against funding the police.

In reality, it is Democrats that have been pushing defunding police for over a year now, which has had devastating effect on Democrat run cities.

Last year after unrest and violence targeting police, Harvard university Professor Roland Fryer urged that defunding the police would cause more loss of life, citing figures showing that there are “450 excess homicides per year” when police are not able to do their jobs proficiently.
