Jen Psaki is paid a lot to lie on behalf of Barack Obama’s State Department. She went on Fox News to discuss with Megyn Kelly the horrible “Death to America, Death to Israel, Victory to Islam” chants seen on video from the radicals who just took over Yemen’s government.
Psaki seemed thrown off her script, as she suggested we now trust this group because they recently stated that what they said in their chants is no longer “their intention.”
And Megyn wasn’t going to accept such an answer. Kelly laughed and asked:
So… you’re taking them at their word that they no longer mean the chants?
PSAKI: Well, Megyn, first of all I know you could never play all the back and forth we have on Yemen in the briefing, but we’ve been discussing this probably hours last week in the briefing.
KELLY: I don’t want to get deep into the Yemeni politics. I just want to ask you whether you are actually saying that we should just trust this group because they now say, never mind all that chanting about death to America.
PSAKI: Well, I think our actions make clear that we don’t just trust. I think it was important to note that that was something that was stated publicly.
KELLY: So, is the death to America.
PSAKI: Now there’s no question there’s been a great deal of unacceptable violence, rhetoric, everything you’ve said. There’s no question about that. But we’re in a situation that is very tense, it’s fluid. We have to see what’s going to happen on the ground in Yemen. We don’t know yet what’s going to happen there.
KELLY: Let’s hope that was just bluster.
