White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confused millions of Americans during her briefing Wednesday when she bizarrely suggested that Republicans are in favor of “defunding the police.”
“I think the President believes we shouldn’t allow access to guns to those criminals who are illegally buying them from dealers across the country,” said the Press Secretary.
“Part of it is also ensuring specific guidance to communities to ensure they have funding to get more community police. Something that was supported by the American Jobs Plan… Some might say the other party was for defunding the police,” she added.

“The fate of the Dakota Access Pipeline: Is it the administration’s belief that the construction of that pipeline should continue?” asked one reporter.
“Our view is that we would look at each pipeline through each individual pipeline separately and do an analysis,” said Psaki.

“Cabinet Defendants’ actions … have the possibility of depriving States and local governments of millions of dollars in revenues. Yet, far from providing a reasoned explanation for why they are taking their actions, they have not provided any reason at all,” the suit states.
