And you know what happened next.
Today President Biden addressed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and he said that “no one expected sanctions to prevent anything from happening.”
Biden: "No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening…Putin's not going to say 'oh, my god, the sanctions are coming.'"

Well, no one except perhaps Kamala Harris?
President Biden today: "No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening."
VP Harris on Sunday: "The purpose of the sanctions has always been and continues to be deterrence."

That definitely is Defiant L’s-worthy.
Count Jen Psaki among those who Biden just contradicted:
Psaki 24 hours ago: "They [sanctions] are meant to have a deterrent impact." https://t.co/PYYPqBZ69b
