The Democrats and Joe Biden have told some whoppers in their time.

But the whopper they were putting out today, the new “talking point” — that somehow it was the Republicans who were behind “defunding the police” — really takes some kind of nerve to push.

One of Biden’s closest advisers, Cedric Richmond, started it, but then Jen Psaki, speaking on behalf of Biden, supported what Richmond said and tried deceiving the American public with the new line, as well.

Absolutely shameless. Under questioning from Fox’s Peter Doocy, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki argues it’s *Republicans* who have been defunding the police and not supporting law enforcement because they didn’t vote for Biden’s stimulus boondoggle the American Rescue Plan. pic.twitter.com/pIwfFkonu1

It’s offensive, frankly. It assumes that everyone was asleep or brain dead for the past year while across the country, Democrats pushed to defund the police and did pull money and cut police in multiple Democratic-controlled cities. Psaki talks about the pandemic causing cuts. But while it’s possible that there may have been some places that had cuts because of the pandemic, it was the Democrats who were behind the movement across the country to cut the police.

But the White House didn’t leave it there with Psaki. White House Rapid Response Director Mike Gwin went all in on it, too, doubling down on Psaki’s words.

The Rescue Plan is providing significant money to help state and local governments hire police and fund a range of other crime fighting measures.@POTUS and Democrats supported that funding. The GOP voted against it unanimously.

So, yes. https://t.co/gYGQTBqst9

Republicans are not “defunding the police” by not approving bloated Democratic bills. It’s not even logical. Plus can they point where in their bill things were actually specified to fund police?

Am I missing something? For some reason the words “police” or “law enforcement” don’t come up in a search of the text of the 242 page American Rescue plan
