Jen Psaki has never been one to let the facts get in the way of the Leftist narrative.
She learned a great deal about how to massage the truth while trying to make the Biden Administration look better during her 18 months as White House Press Secretary.
But now Psaki is getting owned on social media with fact checks after she tried to pass along this blatant lie as the truth.
Republican Presidential candidates take center stage
This week, former President Donald Trump sat down for a one-on-one interview with the biggest name in journalism on the right, Tucker Carlson.
At the same time, the eight GOP challengers to the 45th President of the United States who are also running for the White House participated in the first debate of the Primary season.
For those reasons, Republicans have been dominating the news cycle.
Democrats have been showing signs of desperation to get the focus back on them.
And for former White House Press Secretary and current MSNBC host Jen Psaki, that desperation reared its ugly head in the form of deceit.
All eyes on abortion
Abortion was one of the hot topics Fox News decided to bring up at the debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The topic led to a heated exchange between the seven men and one woman on the stage.
Nikki Haley gave a very consultant-tested answer; however, she did point out that it’s not Republicans who have an extreme position on abortion with things like the heartbeat bill, but Democrats who advocate for abortion-on-demand, for any reason, at taxpayer expense, up to the point of birth, and even after for some.
The former UN Ambassador and Governor of South Carolina suggested it’s past time for Big Media to start holding Democrats’ feet to the fire for their extreme positions on abortion.
That notion triggered the Left, who like the current setup of receiving only softballs from their friends in the press.
And former Biden Administration higher up, Jen Psaki, was at the top of the list.
Psaki turns to what she does best
Psaki took to Twitter and told a baldfaced lie – drawing flashbacks to her days behind the podium as President Joe Biden’s Press Secretary.
No one supports abortion up until birth.

“No one supports abortion up until birth,” Psaki tweeted.
Psaki was quickly called out for her statement being patently false.
That is, in fact, the plurality position within the Democrat party.
A Gallup poll from June found 34% – almost entirely made up of Democrats – support abortion at any point for any reason.
Colorado has already passed legislation making abortion legal up to the point of birth, and more blue states have proposed the legislation.

And the campaign for Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis responded to Psaki’s factually incorrect tweet.
In the video posted by the DeSantis War Room, you can watch five straight minutes of different prominent Democrats saying abortion should be legal until the baby is out of the womb.
Others chose to try and hold Psaki to her comments.
Then you should have no issues banning late term abortions.

Since Psaki claims literally no one wants abortion up until birth, American Principles Project President Terry Schilling asks if Democrats would be willing to support legislation making that assertion the law of the land.
“Then you should have no issues banning late term abortions,” Schilling tweeted.
