Today, a New York Times reporter asked Jen Psaki a loaded question about the Kamala Harris interview, in which she portrayed conservatives and Republicans as “going crazy” on Twitter when the vice president said she hadn’t “gone to Europe” when asked why she hadn’t traveled to the border. But her query ended with the phrase “don’t conservatives have a point” when they claim that Kamala should go to the border and observe both the end result and the causes of migration to the border:
Pathetic: NYT’s Katie Rogers and Jen Psaki tag-team to mock “Republicans and conservatives are going crazy” and “getting worked up” over Vice President Harris’s interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.

In her response, Psaki claims that Kamala’s main job is to try to fix the root causes of migration, and she then dismisses the idea that the Vice President should go to the border.
But then she made a mistake, a complete slip, and stated something that I’m not sure many people noticed (emphasis mine):
I will say we’re not taking advice from former President Trump or most of the Republicans who are criticizing us on this, given they were all sitting there while we created this problem we walked into, both at the border and with the movement of migration that has been growing over the last year.
Finally, Psaki says something with which I agree. They were the ones who created the crisis that they now had to deal with. Because it is their language and actions that have sent this avalanche of migrants to the border, Biden and Kamala are mostly accountable for what is occurring there.
Now, I’m guessing she didn’t mean it the way it came out, as she was clearly attempting to blame Republicans. But it’s possible she caught a case of ‘Liar, Lair’ (the movie) and told the truth when she didn’t mean to. Laugh out loud.
