When in Doubt, Blame Trump! by The Elephant's Child

Jen Psaki, President Biden’s press secretary, ventured into fantasy land yesterday at a press conference. She said that the influx of immigrants at the southern border was “something that began during and was something that was exacerbated by the Trump administration.” (That’s apparently why so many illegal immigrants when asked why they are choosing now to try to get in, say that Joe Biden invited them to come. And obviously the border wall that President Trump had been building along the southern border was meant as a special welcome?

She added “After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system. That’s our objective. After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border—something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration.” How embarrassing! There are some whoppers that even a dedicated press secretary should find embarrassing to utter.

The Border Wall that Trump was successfully building (and Biden is trying to tear down) is imaginary, those tee shirts that everyone kept wondering about that said something about “Biden let me in” were a figment of the imagination, and somehow Trump is responsible for the migrants that he tried so hard to keep out? The influx has been massive and devastating to the border states and towns. The Border Patrol is overworked and deeply frustrated with the lack of help and support from the current administration. And the increased flow of drugs is devastating.

Clearly, Democrats started hating Trump even before he was elected. They hated him throughout his presidency, gave him credit for nothing, while having their lives saved by “Operation Warp Speed”which set records in the speed of development of successful vaccines.They blamed him for an invasion of the capitol building which he did not cause, and impeached him for that invasion, which he had noting whatsoever to do with.

The Covid crisis began a few miles north of my house in a nursing home in Kirkland, Washington, when someone returning from Wuhan, China came to visit relatives in the nursing home, and infected many patients and staff. President Trump recognized promptly what was happening and slapped a ban on any flights from China. As soon as it was identified as a virus, he initiated “Operation Warp-Speed” to develop a vaccine. The most successful effort ever.

When it became clear that we were having a problem with illegal immigrants, and drugs coming in over the Southern Border, he started building a wall to control the influx. It is Joe Biden who halted the wall being built, it is Joe Biden who is responsible for the sharp rise in drugs coming in over the border. The illegal immigrants succeeding in getting across the border believe that Joe Biden invited them to come. But apparently Jen Psaki didn’t get the message. If, however, you are a Democrat, instructions are apparently to blame anything the public doesn’t like on Donald Trump.
