Joe Biden jetted from Washington to Minnesota Tuesday to push partisan legislation . Knowing my geography, and having taken that flight a few times myself, I realized that Air Force One traveled over Wisconsin en route to the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
Despite that reality, the horrific nature of the Nov. 22 Christmas parade massacre in suburban Milwaukee, and the pain the attack inflicted on a community in southeast Wisconsin, Biden has no plans to visit Waukesha, pay his respects, or be a consoler-in-chief as he’s done elsewhere.
DOOCY TIME: “Before Joe Biden was president, he said that covid travel restrictions on foreign countries were ‘hysterical,’ ‘xenophobia,’ and ‘fearmongering.’ So, what changed?
Psaki demands Doocy “pull it in full context,” which was Biden condemning a Trump tweet, not the ban
Doocy: “We saw the President shopping indoors on Saturday behind glass that says face coverings acquired, but his face was uncovered. Why?
Psaki: He “follows the recommendations and the advice of the CDC. I don’t know what the circumstances were of that particular moment.”
Doocy: “He was shopping in a store and on the glass outside, it said ‘face covering required’ & we could see him inside and his face was uncovered.”
Psaki: “Well, again, Peter, our recommendation and advice continues to be for people to wear masks when they are required…”
Doocy: “Is the concern that when the President says today, ‘please wear your mask indoors in public settings around other people,’ and he doesn’t do that, that it’s going to make it harder to get people to follow him?”
Psaki says Biden wears them “to save” other people’s lives
Doocy: “Joe Biden once described the Remain in Mexico policy as ‘dangerous,’ ‘inhumane,’ and ‘goes against everything we stand for as a nation of immigrants.’ So, why is he keeping it?
Psaki says “he continues to stand by…those comments,” but they’re following a court ruling
Doocy: “Since [Biden] said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has revealed…the assailant swerved his truck side-to-side to run over as many people as possible…Why hasn’t [he] visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?” (6/6)
Fixed typo – “Since [he] said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has revealed…the assailant swerved his truck side-to-side…to run over as many people as possible…Why hasn’t [he] visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?”
