Last week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki told Fox News’ Peter Doocy that the Biden administration it has no official position about the protests that erupted outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court judges.
Doocy: “The activists posted a map with the home addresses of the Supreme Court judges. Is this the kind of thing this president wants?”

yesterday, tried to go back (not good, of course):
.@POTUS firmly believes in the constitutional right to protest. But that should never include violence, threats or vandalism. Judges perform an incredibly important function in our society and must be able to do their jobs without worrying about their personal safety.

Well, it’s a new day and it looks like Jen is shifting gears once again:

Yes, exactly our thoughts. We must have heard it badly. She surely she couldn’t have said … that thing she just said:

Even if we take the more charitable possible approach to his remarks – and he does not deserve our charity – at best he is claiming that the protests outside the homes of the SCOTUS judges, protests that have led to said judges and their families to be moved to safe places. This is gaslighting in the extreme.
But we’re inclined to interpret Psaki’s comments in the worst possible way, because that’s what he deserves. And that means what we hear from you is that it is Joe Biden’s official position to encourage the angry pro-abortion left to organize protests outside the judges’ private residences and threaten God knows what else.
“We certainly continue to encourage him outside the houses of judges”

Good. It should be. This should haunt Jen Psaki. It should be stalking the Biden administration. It should persecute the Democratic Party.
Excuse me, but I was told that a president who supported the insurrection had to be removed from office.
