White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki continued to rewrite history to fit the Democrat administration’s agenda during her Monday press briefing by doubling down on her claims that Republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police.

“Cedric Richmond, he said Republicans defunded the police by not supporting the American Rescue Plan but how is it that that is an argument to be made when the president never mentioned needing money for police to stop the crime wave when he was selling the American Rescue Plan?” Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked.

“The president did mention that the American Rescue Plan, state local funding something that was supported by the president,” she insisted.

When Doocy mentioned that the focus of funding in that bill was to help during a “pandemic-related budget shortfall” instead of focusing on combatting a massive crime wave, Psaki once again brushed off his concerns.

“I think that any local department would argue that keeping cops on the beat to keep communities safe when they had to, because of budget shortfalls, fire police is something that helps them address crime in their local communities,” Psaki continued.

Doocy continued to push back on the White House’s massive spin by pointing out the crux of the COVID act was to send more stimulus and fund vaccination campaigns,
