White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki doubled down on the administration’s false claim that the President’s $3.5 trillion spending package will “cost zero” despite its gargantuan price-tag on nationwide entitlement programs.
“Let’s not dumb this down for the American public… This is not going to cost the American public a dollar!” said Psaki.
“Does the plan cost nothing or is the plan free?” pressed one reporter.
“The plan costs nothing for American people who make less than $400,000,” claimed Psaki.
A frustrated reporter grilled Psaki on similar comments last week.
“Do you guys acknowledge the broader truth that it does cost somebody?? Right? The cost of the investments the president wants to make, they’re not simply a free lunch, right? Whether they’re going to cost people who smoke cigarettes, or businesspeople, or companies, or rich people… The cost of what the President wants to do falls on somebody, right?” asked one reporter.
“There’s a clear difference between what we’re talking about as it relates to taxpayer funds, or funding that would lead to our debt? Right?” deflected the Press Secretary.

SPIN BEGIN: Jen Psaki Dodges When Grilled Over Kamala’s ‘Abusive’ Work Environment
“Is the White House concerned that some vice presidential staffers reportedly feel like they work in a quote ‘abusive environment?’” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.
“Well I would first note that I try not to speak to or engage on anonymous reports or anonymous sources,” Psaki said. “I will say that the vice president is an incredibly important partner to the president of the United States.”

WATCH: Psaki Dodges Questions About Biden’s Mental State After Terrorists Kill 13 US Troops
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked by reporters to comment on the President’s mental state this week; saying he was “somber” and “outraged” after terrorists killed at least 13 service members in Afghanistan.
“How is he? How is his mood? How is he dealing with all the incoming information, how was he in asking the questions to military commanders?” asked one reporter.
“Putting the lives of service men and women at risk, those decisions that you have to make way heavily on him. Any day when you lose service members may be the worst day of your presidency,” said Psaki.
“He was somber, as he said, outraged at these terrorists taking the lives of service members,” she added.

An image of President Biden hunched at his podium went viral on social media Thursday after the Commander-in-Chief spoke with reporters following the terror blast.
“Do you bear any responsibility for the way that things have unfolded in the last two weeks?” asked Fox News’ Peter Doocy.
“I bear responsibility, fundamentally, for all that’s happened… You know as well as I do that a former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all American forced out of Afghanistan by May 1…” said Biden.
