Asked by a reporter, “What do you make of these really terrible polls?” Psaki deflected to the coronavirus pandemic and the high number of unvaccinated people as reasons Biden’s so unpopular.
“I would say that this is a really tough time in our country,” a flustered Psaki responded.
“We’re still battling Covid, and a lot of people thought we’d be through it, including us. And because of the rise of the Delta variant, because of the fact that even though it was a vaccine that was approved under a Republican administration, even though we now have full FDA approval and even though it’s widely available across the country…we still have a quarter of the country…less than that… 20% of the country who’ve decided not to get vaccinated. No question that’s having an impact.”
