White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to comment on reports that a group of Texas Democrats who fled the state to block a voting integrity bill contracted COVID; saying the progressive lawmakers are simply “standing up” for freedom.
“About ten percent of the traveling party now claim to have breakthrough cases of COVID. Is this a super spreader event?” asked Fox News Peter Doocy.
“Well, I would say that’s not a characterization we’re making from here… Our message continues to be ‘thanks for standing up for voting rights,’” said Psaki.
“Vaccinations protect from death, from serious illness, from hospitalization. So that’s a good sign!” she added.
