Press Secretary Jen Psaki appears to be taking some heat, yet again. This time for claiming America has a gun problem, while seemingly ignoring the effects of Democrat attacks on law enforcement.
The discussion set off during a Monday briefing when she was asked about soaring crime rates in the country. The reporter pointed out 12 mass shootings over the weekend, which left at least 29 injured in Democrat-led New York City.
Experts have attributed recent upticks in crime to de-policing in response to Black Lives Matter riots. However, critics quickly pointed out that Psaki seems to hold a different view.
While taking to Twitter, commentator Caleb Hull said Psaki is acting as if there weren’t “riots every night and complete lawlessness” throughout last summer.
