As Twitchy reported earlier, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Monday the difference between President Donald Trump’s travel ban from China and President Joe Biden’s travel bans from Africa; why was one “xenophobic” and the other not?

Psaki did her own spinning, which The Recount says was in response to Doocy’s “bad-faith question.”

It just so happened that Biden called out Trump’s record of xenophobia on Twitter immediately after Trump announced his travel ban from China; just a coincidence, certainly.

Apparently thinking Psaki needed backup, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates stepped in with a fact check from the time which proved that there was no record of Biden criticizing the decision.

Well, if Bloomberg says so. In February, though, Biden tore into Trump’s “African ban,” saying it was designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate. So Trump’s ban was racist, and Biden’s is …?

He’s worse at it than Psaki — that’s why he’s deputy press secretary.
