Psaki Won’t Answer Questions Regarding Biden’s False Claims About Georgia’s New Election Laws

1811

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki avoided answering several questions related to Georgia’s new election integrity laws and Biden’s now-debunked claims and the MLB’s boycotting the state.

When asked, “Is the President going to change the way that he talks about the new Georgia voting law?”

“Because in that interview that you’ve referenced, he said, ‘the law would end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off,’ and he said it would end voting hours early so working people can’t have their vote after their shift is over. But The Washington Post gave that claim four Pinocchios because that part of the law gives counties the option to extend voting hours. And so I’m just curious if the President is going to change the way that he’s talking.”

After initially deflecting, Psaki said, “Well, again, I think the fact checkers will also tell you that this bill does not make it easier for people across the state of Georgia to vote, and that’s where he has concerns.”

Psaki continued to receive questions regarding the President’s view of the MLB removing the league’s All-Star game from Atlanta in response to the GA election reform law. Her responses did not address the questions presented. She also downplayed the administration’s stance on the issues.
