Things are falling apart for the Biden Administration.
Democrats are still trying to save face.
And Jen Psaki immediately regretted picking this major fight with Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham.
The corporate media is smearing Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Brian Kilmeade for texting Mark Meadows on January 6 and asking him to have Donald Trump release a statement condemning the violence at the Capitol.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki joined in on the smears, parroting the lie that Ingraham, Hannity, and Kilmeade condemned the violence in private while going on the air and telling viewers it was no big deal.
Jen Psaki was one of the Democrats who amplified this corporate media-generated misinformation.
“It is disappointing and not surprising, the same individuals willing to warn, condemn, and express horror over what happened on January 6th, in private, were totally silent in public or even worse, were spreading lies and conspiracy theories and continue to since that time. Disappointing, not surprising, unfortunately we have seen a trend from the same individuals,” Psaki falsely claimed during a White House press briefing.
During her Fox News show later that night, host Laura Ingraham launched into a searing monologue against Psaki and the rest of the liars at the Washington Post and CNN.
As Ingraham pointed out, her text message to Mark Meadows condemning the violence and asking Trump to release a statement was essentially the same thing she said publicly at the same time in a series of tweets.
“Security breach at the Capitol is disgraceful and the President needs to tell everyone to leave the building now. 2:44 P.M. Anyone who thinks this is gonna help the MAGA movement is delusional. It hurts the movement, the Trump legacy and of course the country,” Ingraham read on the air from a tweet posted the afternoon of January 6.
“The president should order [National Guard] to secure the Capitol immediately,” Ingraham read from another tweet during the melee.
“When there’s any big crowd there will invariably be bad actors, but blame will be laid at the feet of the White House if the Capitol is not cleared quickly,” Ingraham also wrote at the time.
Democrats and the corporate media are hoping to use the events of January 6 to attack all of their political enemies, including Fox News.
