Psaki Slams Right-Wing Fury Over Harris Bakery Visit: ‘Like Many Americans, She Got A Snack’


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday pushed back against right-wing anger at Vice President Kamala Harris’s visit to a bakery while she was in Chicago to talk about the importance of COVID-19 vaccinations.

Fox News attacked the vice president’s visit to pick up a piece of German chocolate cake, “even as she faces scrutiny for not having visited the overwhelmed southern border”.

Harris was in Chicago to visit a vaccination site and popped in to the Brown Sugar Bakery on the city’s South Side while she was there.

New York Post correspondent Steven Nelson brought up the visit during Wednesday’s White House briefing.

“She hasn’t visited the border or Central America or spoken with leaders of El Salvador or Honduras,” Nelson began. “She traveled this week, took time to visit a bakery in Chicago. I’m wondering is she still working on this [border issue] and can you address the perception that she’s kind of quietly backing off?”

“There’s a whole lot packed in there,” Psaki replied. “The vice president was visiting Chicago actually to talk COVID and the importance of communities getting the vaccine when it’s available and accessible to them.”

“And so while she was there, like many Americans, she got a snack,” she added. “I think she’s allowed to do that.”
