Video footage catches Jen Psaki in lie about mask wearing

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was contradicted by President Joe Biden following recent statements the two had made on the same subject.

Psaki claimed that Vice President Kamala Harris wore a mask indoors before the SCOTUS confirmation celebration according to The Daily Mail. However, a video of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation ceremony contradicted the press secretary’s claim.

The video shows Harris along with first lady Jill Biden, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, Jackson, and members of Jackson’s family with Biden in the Oval Office, all without masks before moving outside to the Rose Garden, but not before the group stayed in the Oval office without face coverings for some time.

In the video, Harris, and Jackson walked side by side, well within six feet of one another, and Harris joined Biden and Jackson onstage for words later.

“Yesterday, we witnessed a truly historic moment,” the president said in the caption of the video. The contradictions appear to be numerous with both Harris and the White House press secretary.

“The CDC says, for people exposed to COVID, up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations: Do not go to places where you are unable to wear a well-fitting mask,” Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy said on Friday.”So why is she here at the White House today giving the new Supreme Court justice a big hug with no mask?” Doocy queried.

“You mean when she gave her a ma- — a hug outside?” Psaki responded, which Doocy confirmed he was referencing.

“She was outside,” the press secretary responded. “Does the CDC say that people who are close contact can give people hugs outside?” Psaki hit back. “We know, Peter, that outside it is — it is — you are — you can benefit significantly being outside. That’s why we have — we had the event outside today. I will tell you that the Vice President has been wearing a mask inside. When there was a private greet, they were all wearing masks, before they went out…” she said before Doocy interrupted.

“We saw she was wearing a mask yesterday at the Senate,” he said.

“She was playing an important role in confirming or overseeing the confirmation of the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. The vast majority, as was on camera, Peter,” she said.

“Is there a public health carve-out for that?” the correspondent said.

“As was on camera. Let me finish my answer here. Because Fox and other — I don’t know actually that Fox carried it, but others did — saw that she was socially distanced from people for the vast, vast majority of her time overseeing that confirmation yesterday,” the press secretary insisted.
