There were a lot of flip-flops this past Saturday. In the morning, liberals were crying that Republicans were obsessed with “some dumb weather balloon” and yet didn’t care about the COVID-19 pandemic or the classified documents found at Mar-a-Lago, which are a much larger security threat. In other words, don’t sweat it about the balloon. Then President Joe Biden ordered the balloon shot down, and the same liberals celebrated the leadership and courage demonstrated by the president.
As Twitchy reported earlier, “a senior official” says that three similar Chinese spy balloons traversed the country while Donald Trump was president. This seems odd, because had the media gotten a sniff of that story, it would have made headlines for weeks. And we’re just now finding out about it, right after Biden allowed a Chinese spy balloon to float across the continental United States?
Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Monday how it was possible that none in the Trump administration knew about these three spy balloons.
REPORTER: "How is it possible that this administration discovered at least three previous balloons that flew over the US under the previous administration, but Trump officials didn't know it was happening?"

Funny she has to be corrected when she tried to lie about them being aware before they left 🤡🤡

Still waiting for the answer I guess as she fiddles with lots of pages.

They have carte blanche to lie about everything because the media will never check them on it. "Anonymous sources"

KJP: "So when we determined the best strategy to make Biden not look weak over the balloon was to try & throw the Trump admin under the bus we didn't really consider it might make the entire intelligence apparatus look like traitors for hiding things from the previous admin"

It’s gotta be tough to be the mouth piece of lying for this administration. Fumbling over this one hard.

My God! It’s like a third grader giving a book report for the first time; and on a book she didn’t read.

“Fusion Natasha” Bertrand reported it so it must be true.
