"Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle.

Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gave a cruel Mother’s Day gift to the 13 Gold Star families who famously watched President Joe Biden repeatedly stare at his watch during the dignified transfer of their loved ones at Dover Air Force Base almost three years ago — by calling them liars — all to hawk her new book.

Ex-White House press secretary Jen Psaki is being forced to retract a false claim in her new book that President Biden did not check his watch during the dignified transfer of 13 US troops killed in the Afghanistan withdrawal.

In her May 2024 book “Say More,” Psaki attacked her former boss’s critics, who she said seized on the cringe-worthy moment to make “him appear insensitive, concerned only about how much time had passed,” claiming he “only looked at his watch after the ceremony had ended.”
