New White House press secretary Jen Psaki promised to bring “truth and transparency back to the briefing room.” President Biden promised to be guided by science in his decisions regarding the COVID pandemic. Now both of those vows are being put to the test on the question of reopening schools.
This week, Biden’s new CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, publicly said that 1) schools can reopen safely, and 2) there’s no need for teachers to be vaccinated before reopening. Problem is, that’s not what teachers unions want. So what should the White House do when the science says one thing and a key Democratic constituency says another? Psaki twisted herself into a rhetorical pretzel to come up with an answer, and we discuss.
Also in this podcast: An update on the Capitol riot investigation. Why are Capitol Police telling us so little about what happened?
