White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded to Mitch McConnell, who instigated the suffrage hysteria, by using his own words against him.
Video from Psaki:
Psaki said in response to McConnell, “It’s quite ironic that if making voting harder doesn’t silence people’s voices, words Senator McConnell used, then I don’t know what is. I also think it’s important here to point out that, if you look at Sen. McConnell’s record, Sen. McConnell has a pretty strong record of voting support. “
Psaki used McConnell’s quotes in support of the right to vote against him, including reading from his memoir.
The press secretary concluded, “I use these examples to remind people that this should not be a partisan issue, to protect people’s basic voting rights, that people should protect them and stand up for Americans of all political stripes. We are working on that. “
Mitch McConnell was wrong. The call for voting rights is not hysteria. It’s a response to the old, white-male-dominated Republican Party that seeks to stay in power by essentially manipulating voters by making it harder for anyone who isn’t part of them.
Jen Psaki is an effective White House press secretary because she’s not afraid of going straight to facts or flipping the script on Republicans.
Psaki called on McConnell’s hypocrisy, and it would be nice for reporters to criticize McConnell for why his position has changed drastically.
