A New York Times reporter gave a somewhat loaded question to Jen Psaki today regarding the Kamala interview, where she described conservatives and Republicans as ‘going crazy’ on Twitter about the VP saying she hasn’t ‘gone to Europe’ when asked why she hasn’t been to the border. But her question did end with ‘don’t conservatives have a point’ when they argue Kamala should go to the border and see the end result of migration to the border as well as the causes:
Pathetic: NYT's Katie Rogers and Jen Psaki tag-team to mock "Republicans and conservatives are going crazy" and "getting worked up" over Vice President Harris's interview with NBC's Lester Holt.

In her answer, Psaki argues that Kamala is only tasked with trying to solve the root causes of migration and dismisses the argument that the VP needs to visit the border.
But then she slipped up and said something that I’m not sure a lot of people have caught (emphasis mine):
I will say we’re not taking advice from former President Trump or most of the Republicans who are criticizing us on this, given they were all sitting there while we created this problem we walked into, both at the border and with the movement of migration that has been growing over the last year.
Finally Psaki says something I can agree with. They did create this problem that they walked into and are having to deal with now. Biden and Kamala are principally responsible for what is happening at the border because it’s their rhetoric and policies that have launched this avalanche of migrants to the border.
Now I’m guessing she probably didn’t mean it the way it came out, as she was clearly trying to blame Republicans or something. But maybe she got a case of ‘Liar, Lair’ (the movie) and told the truth even though she didn’t mean to do so. LOL.
