Jen Psaki has to stand there and take it as a reporter read to her a rebuke from the sister of a Marine killed in the terror attack in Kabul.
According to Mediaite:
Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker read aloud, to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, a rebuke of President Joe Biden by the sister of a U.S. Marine who was killed in the Kabul terrorist attacks.
At Monday’s White House daily briefing, Psaki was asked about the president’s meetings with the families of the 13 fallen service members. While she expressed Biden’s feelings about the interactions, Psaki said she was “not going to speak to private conversations between the President and the parents of service members who lost their lives saving others.”
But in an attempt to jar something loose, Parker confronted Psaki with comments that Roice McCollum — sister of late Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum — made to her newspaper regarding the President’s meeting with the families.
“The sister of one of the Marines killed in the airport attack told the press that the President’s comments struck her family as ‘scripted’ and ‘shallow.’ And she said, quote, ‘You can’t F up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry. This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands,’” Parker said, and asked Psaki “can you talk a little about how the President thought the meeting with the families went? And also, what responsibility, if any, for these deaths does he think he bears?”
Psaki did say that Biden did feel responsibility and the buck stops with him.
