(PatrioticPost.com)- White House Press Secretary did something that no other press secretary has ever done on Friday…she asked why reporters “need” specific information while refusing to elaborate on a question asked of her.
What kind of press secretary asks journalists why they feel entitled to an answer?
When Psaki was asked to reveal information about White House staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 after being vaccinated, Psaki asked, “why do you need to have that information?”
Don’t forget – we were told that this would be the most open and transparent administration in history. Jen Psaki is not living up to that promise.
The reporter responded by telling Psaki the question should be answered in the interest of “transparency” and a “better understanding of how breakthrough cases work here in the White House.

It was probably the most egregious example of the Biden administration shunning the press and refusing to provide answers that might embarrass them, but Psaki didn’t seem to be too bothered by it.
Her refusal to provide the data comes after Vice President Kamala Harris was tested for COVID-19 after coming into direct contact with AWOL Texas Democrats who abandoned their duties in the Texas state legislature to engage in meetings in Washington, D.C., to promote the extremist “For the People” Act.
Psaki refused to expand on the numbers but simply said that all White House staff have been offered a vaccine, but that it has not been mandated. She refused to say how many members of the White House staff are currently vaccinated.
When the United States is being gripped by a rapid spread of the new Delta variant of COVID-19, wouldn’t you think that the White House would want to be as open as possible?
