White House press secretary Jen Psaki is under fire after she touted the Biden administration’s response to the shipping crisis as saving Christmas.
“Christmas gifts are arriving on time this year. Good news. We’ve saved Christmas!” Psaki stated during a press conference Wednesday. “And that is because President Biden recognized this challenge early, acted as an honest broker to bring key stakeholders together, and focused on addressing practical problems across the global supply chain.”
Psaki also tweeted a New York Times article Wednesday titled, “Why Christmas Gifts Are Arriving on Time This Year,” with the caption “Take that Scrooge, the Grinch and all of the doubters that this could happen. Also shelves are stocked at 90% (pre-pandemic levels are 91%)”
