What is she trying to hide?
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki attacked reporters after she was questioned if the Biden administration will be transparent with staff being tested positive for COVID-19. Psaki started off by refusing to give the number of staffers who were tested positive for COVID-19.
She also stated that they are in “a very different place than we were six to seven months ago,” Psaki then refused to state the percentage of staffers who are vaccinated for the virus.
“But why not just provide the number?” a reporter asked. “Are you trying to hide something?”
“No, but what is the — why do you need to have that information?” Psaki answered.
“It’s a case of transparency, in the interest of the public, knowing — having a better understanding of how breakthrough cases work here in the White House,” the reporter responded.
