Let me just say that the present White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gives me the willies. I just find her incredibly snarky and off-putting. And unlike her predecessor, Kayleigh McEnany, thus far Psaki , as far as I’ve seen, hasn’t giving a single, honest, straightforward answer to any question that wasn’t a served-up softball by the sycophantic leftist press.
This time was no exception, as Peter Doocy at Fox News, somehow got to ask a question as to why, after all the left’s wailing and gnashing of teeth accusing Trump of forcing illegal alien “babies in cages,” the Biden administration is reopening the same facility to, “put kids in cages.”
Kudos to Peter Doocy for calling out the hypocrites. But don’t expect a straight answer from Ms. Psaki.

Reporter confronts Jen Psaki on Biden admin reopening ‘cages’ shut down under Trump
White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday was confronted by a reporter on the Biden administration’s apparent hypocrisy for reopening a temporary facility for migrant children in Texas closed by the previous administration.
President Joe Biden’s administration reopened the temporary Influx Care Facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, to care for children, mostly teenagers age 13-17, who arrive at the border unaccompanied by a parent. The facility is capable of holding roughly 700 children with coronavirus safety measures implemented.
The site has been inactive since July 2019, when it was closed by President Donald Trump’s administration after fierce criticism by Democrats that this facility and others like it treated migrant children inhumanely.
During Tuesday’s press briefing, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki why the Biden administration was reopening the facility.
