WH Distances Itself From Tlaib’s Call to End Federal Prisons

November 25, 2021

Tuesday at the daily White House press briefing, press propagandist Jen Psaki threw Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) under the bus by distancing President Joe Biden from her radical, unpopular proposal to close federal prisons.

“Let me be absolutely clear: The President does not support abolishing prisons,” Psaki asserted.

Tlaib recently defended this insane concept in an interview with Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, suggesting that many criminals in federal prison were suffering from mental illness and thus needed “care first,” not “mass incarceration.”

Psaki also distanced Biden from efforts to defund the police, despite the senile president himself saying during the 2020 campaign he would “absolutely” consider it. Psaki said, “He thinks measures like that will make us less safe and he would not support legislation that includes it.”

Or at least, he doesn’t support it right now. Give him time. After all, in a private video conference leaked to the public after the 2020 election, Biden warned civil rights leaders to ease off of — not abandon — the “defund the police” talking point. “I also don’t think we should get too far ahead of ourselves on dealing with police reform in that, because they’ve already labeled us as being ‘defund the police’ anything we put forward in terms of the organizational structure to change policing – which I promise you, will occur. Promise you,” Biden said.
