Before taking office, Joe Biden and his handlers promised “transparency” to the American people, and certainly much more than their predecessor — though Donald Trump was the most transparent president in modern history.
But because they are Democrats, the Biden team was never serious about ‘transparency.’
It is the Democrat way to lie, obfuscate, and blame others for their mistakes. And that tradition is continuing with the Biden regime.
Case in point: On Sunday, chief White House liar Jen Psaki danced all around a question from Fox News Sunday host Chris Matthews about when the regime would permit the media access to the overstuffed, unsanitary detention centers were they are keeping illegal aliens and migrant children well beyond the three-day limit per federal law.
Fox News' Chris Wallace spoke with White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Sunday and opened by asking about the migrant surge at the border — particularly the lack of media access to border facilities.
President Joe Biden was questioned on that issue during his Thursday press conference. He said, 'You'll have full access to everything once we get this thing moving.'
Wallace noted to Psaki that 'the only way we know how bad conditions are' right now is because of pictures that members of Congress released.
'These kids are living in these conditions now. They're not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed,' Wallace said, pressing Psaki on why reporters cannot be allowed into the facilities now in a safe way.
Psaki claimed that the Biden administration is 'absolutely committed' to doing that, but then Wallace pressed her on when that would be and she…demurred.
'We want to provide access into the border patrol facilities,' she said. 'We are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic. We want to keep these kids safe, keep the staff safe, but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities.'
To his credit, Wallace didn’t accept that.
'At this point, in terms of allowing access to border patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration,' he said.
Despite Wallace’s dishonest jab at the Trump administration, it is clear as day that the Biden regime is hiding its abysmal treatment of migrants and migrant children as it deals with a new border crisis they created.
What’s worse, however, is that the same garbage media isn’t angrier about it.
