Babbling Jen Psaki Explains Why Joe Biden’s Travel Bans Are Good & Trump’s Bans Were Bad

Videos by OutKick

One or more travel bans were good. One or more were bad. Welcome to politics in 2021. Joe Biden’s press secretary stepped up to the podium Monday to answer questions about President Joe Biden’s travel ban on South Africa after the discovery of the Omicron variant. It’s the latest hysteria whipped up by Biden and his media lapdogs who wasted no time sending the coronabros into a frenzy with headlines of it being a “race against time.”

Jen was asked about travel bans and how President Biden threw around “hysteria, xenophobia and fear-mongering” claims in January 2020 when Trump’s administration was in the process of instituting travel bans from China.

“What the President was critical of was the way [Trump] put out a xenophobic tweet on what he called the coronavirus and who he directed it at,” Psaki told Fox News reporter Peter Doocy. “The President has not been critical of travel restrictions. We have put them in place ourselves. We put them in ourselves in the spring. He believes we should follow the advice of health and medical experts. That’s exactly what he did by putting in these restrictions over the weekend.”

It was interesting for Psaki to mention that Biden hasn’t been “critical of travel restrictions” considering what he tweeted on March 12, 2020 when Trump banned travel from Europe.

A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” then Presidential-candidate Joe Biden wrote on Twitter. “Banning all travel from Europe – or any other part of the world – will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet – and we need a plan to combat it.

Biden made a point going all the way back to 2020 to drop nuggets to voters that they just couldn’t trust Trump because of this xenophobia against China and his “fearmongering.” It happened at a January 31, 2020 campaign stop in Iowa.

 

“We have right now a crisis with the coronavirus, emanating from China,” Biden said in Fort Madison, Iowa. “A national emergency worldwide alerts. The American people need to have a president who they can trust what he says about it, that he is going to act rationally about it. In moments like this, this is where the credibility of the president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”

Speaking of fearmongering, let’s take a look at the current situation in South Africa where the doctor who discovered the variant spoke to BBC and Reuters and urged those freaking out to calm down.

“What we are seeing clinically in South Africa — and remember I’m at the epicenter of this where I’m practicing — is extremely mild, for us [these are] mild cases. We haven’t admitted anyone, I’ve spoken to other colleagues of mine and they give the same picture,” Dr. Angelique Coetzee told the BBC.

Coetzee went on to tell the BBC that her patients were dealing with “very mild” symptoms from omicron.

There you have it, just another day of politics in 2021.

  1. Couldn’t this be explained easily? Donald Trump has a history of being a racist or saying racist things. Trump was a racist birther against Obama, Trump called African Nations “shit hole countries”, Trump called the people in Charlottesville “Very Fine People” and it was Donald Trump thst tried to apply a “Muslim Ban”. If you don’t know the difference between the 2 you are either a MAGA idiot or just got to this country after the last election. Trump has a history of being a racist asshole and that’s the difference. IJS….no….IJMFS

    • There are only 4 racist assholes in this article/comments: Biden, Harris, Psaki, and you. If you can’t spot that, it’s very telling. It’s why the party of racism (Democrats, very, very obviously) keeps minorities down in cities across America. It’s in their nature. You defending them is what keeps perpetuating the cycle. It’s true, and there are mountains and mountains of evidence that verify it. Wake up.

      • So Republicans keep whites down in Appalachia and rural America? Before you get started stop. The top 10 poorest and least educated states in America are run by Republicans you DUMBASS…..Look it up See Jam.6th as example A of dumbassness….. Lmbao at conservatives

    • You voted for a guy who was against busing because it “would create a racial jungle” but are here trying to explain why a guy who was adored by African American rappers, actors, athletes, and celebrities for decades is really the racist one.

      BTW, Biden stripped all of Trump’s funding for HBCU schools. You know, because Trump is the racist one.

      CLOWN.

    • Liar. Cite one credible example of Trump being a racist, just one. I dare you. There is nothing in the statements above that are defined as racism. Tell the literally thousands of blacks that Trump has personally helped in recent years that he is a racist, as well as the millions who support him because he promotes policies that HELP THEM get out of dependency. Contrast that to the Democrat plantation, something that you are too stupid to leave. Trump is a lot of things: racist is not one of them. BTW, Islam is a religion, not a race, dummy. You are a racist POS and a lying asshole, nothing more.

    • Biden has a well-documented history of being racist and saying racist things.
      “If you don’t vote for Biden you ain’t black!”
      “Don’t want to raise my kids in a racial jungle!”
      “Gonna put y’all back in chains!”
      Friend of KKK Grand Wizard Robert Byrd
      “Obama is the first clean articulate…”

      The fact that you are willing to look right past Biden’s racism to call Trump a racist shows how effectively you have been brainwashed. “If you don’t vote for Biden you ain’t black!”

  2. It’s the angry negro and internet tough guy a little breaking news for him I have been to Africa many times and there is not one country that is democratic and free that is prosperous and modern all are run by despots poor and tyrannical . I’m willing to smarten up if he can point out just one go for it I will wait

  3. “Around the time the Trump administration announced the travel restriction, Biden said that Trump had a ‘record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering,’” Politifact confirmed. “Biden used the phrase ‘xenophobic’ in reply to a Trump tweet about limiting entry to travelers from China and in which Trump described the coronavirus as the ‘Chinese virus,’” the fact-checkers asserted.

  4. “Is there a concern that when the president says today ‘please wear your masks indoors in public settings around other people,’ and he doesn’t do that, that it’s gonna make it harder to get people to follow him?” Doocy asked, expressing a sudden preoccupation with hypocrisy that seemed completely absent from the right-wing news outlet’s airwaves during the previous administration.

    “I think you see the American people, and all of you see the president wearing a mask evertime he comes out to an event, when he’s sitting in meetings, and, certainly, he will continue to model behavior he knows the American people will follow, not for his benefit, but to save their own lives and the lives of their friends and neighbors,” Psaki defended the president while reminding Doocy exactly whom pandemic precautions are meant to protect.

    • More dick sucking on the Left by our house nigger. Trump just told it like it was. The virus came from China so we`re going to put a ban on it. It must really suck being such an ignorant, miserable piece of shit. I`ve told you before: you`re never going to be white. Deal with it. I`m sure it sucks being part of the 13% that`s always fucking this country up.

  5. The 13% are lapdogs for the Democrat party because they give them free and reduced cost shit so they don’t have to work. Unfortunately, it just keeps them from being forced to better themselves educationally, fiscally, and emotionally. The Dems are their slave masters, keeping them down and the 13% are too stupid to get it.
