At any rate. Psaki was lying, clear as day. Trump never suggested that anyone inject themselves with bleach.

I'm done with this particular Psaki lie. Time to move on to the next, I imagine.

Fixed that for you.

I agree. What he said was stupid abs was likely to result in dumbass followers injecting bleach but it wasn't a suggestion to do so. Asking whether injecting disinfectant can be done is different than suggesting folks do it.

Agar he said was mockable enough. No need to exaggerate the ignorance and change his words.

Though Psaki's own words are loose enough to be consistent with what Trump did more or less say that I wouldn't call it a bald lie.

Well, obviously he was just inspecting the cookie for defects to insure that his base would only get the Best Quality Cookies and would never be defrauded by the vast Fake Cookie Conspiracy!

We have a little chart here to help give you a visual. Almost $8 trillion in debt under Trump. $676 billion under Biden. What McConnell is refusing to do is pay the debts he rung up during the Trump administration.

Why let McConnell off the hook? This is a period of time when we could easily solve this in the next 2 days by allowing Democrats to be the adults in the room despite the fact that Republicans spent like drunken sailors over the past 4 years

The Biden Admin. announced that the Port of Los Angeles, which receives most of the cargo ships from Asia and which is experiencing severe back up, will operate 24/7 now. Carriers like FedEx, Amazon, UPS, Target and Walmart will be expanding their working hours to help distribute the backed up cargo. At today's press conference, some idiot reporter asked Psaki "Can this administration guarantee that holiday packages will arrive on time?". I swear Psaki was trying to hold back a laugh when she answered, "We are not the Postal Service or UPS or FedEx. We cannot guarantee. What we can do is use every lever at the federal government's disposal to reduce delays."

Sometimes I think reporters just ask any questions, however dumb, just to get air time.
