Psaki Ducks Questions About Why VP Harris Hasn’t Spoken Out Against Cuomo After She Did With Kavanaugh
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has become really, really good at not answering or acknowledging any of the hard questions facing the Biden administration, such as dodging questions about Vice President Kamala Harris not condemning Gov. Andrew Cuomo over sexual harassment allegations made against him the same way she did Brett Kavanaugh a few years back.
The easy answer, of course, is that Harris doesn’t want to turn on one of her own. She only stands up for victims of sexual misconduct when it is politically expedient for her to do so.
“Vice President Kamala Harris was one of the most vocal critics of justice Brett Kavanaugh, of Senator Al Franken, when they faced similar allegations. She said repeatedly, ‘I believe them, the women,’ but she hasn’t said anything about the three women who are accusing Governor Andrew Cuomo,” Fox News reporter Kristen Fisher stated. “And now this third accuser in Anna Ruch, she actually worked for the Biden-Harris campaign. So at what point is the first female vice president going to say something about this?”
“Well, I know that’s how the vice president continues to feel and the benefit of doing a briefing every day is that I can certainly speak on behalf of the president and the vice president,” Psaki said in response. “And so let me reiterate that they both believe that every woman coming forward should be heard, should be treated with dignity, and treated with respect. As you all know, the New York Attorney General will oversee an independent investigation with subpoena power and the governor’s office said he will fully cooperate and we certainly support that moving forward.”
Fisher again pressed Psaki on if the American public can expect to hear from either President Joe Biden or Harris on the issue, to which Psaki said that she represents them and “that’s the representation of their points.”

FISHER: But as you know, it’s one thing to hear it from you, and it’s appreciated, but it’s another thing to hear it from the vice president or the president himself. Can we expect to hear from either of them on this topic anytime soon?
PSAKI: Well, again, I’m speaking on their behalf. That’s how they feel. They’re personally both view this as a situation where both, all of the women coming forward, should be treated with dignity and respect and should have their voices heard. And that’s the representation of their points.
This is not going to be a very transparent administration, is it? Then again, we probably already figured on that, didn’t we? It’s no secret that the political left doesn’t really care about victims the way they pretend to. It’s all political maneuvering and posturing. Nothing more.
Kind of sad how they use people like pawns for their own ends, but hey, it’s what they do best.
