Fox News star Kayleigh McEnany is demanding answers from Jen Psaki after Democrat President Joe Biden’s former press secretary came clean about rising crime.
As Slay News reported, Psaki, now an NBC News analyst, warned that the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies will likely come back to bite them in the midterms.
While appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday, Psaki said: “I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, then they’re going to win.
“If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose. And they know that.
“Crime is a huge vulnerability for Democrats.
“I would say one of the biggest vulnerabilities.
“And if you look at Pennsylvania, for example, what’s been interesting to me is it’s always you follow the money, and where people spending money.
“And in Pennsylvania, the Republicans have been spending millions of dollars on the air on crime ads against Fetterman because that’s where they see his vulnerability.
“So, yes, the economy is hanging over everything.
“But you do have to look at state-by-state factors.
“And crime is a huge issue in the Pennsylvania race,” she said.

Enter President Donald Trump’s former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who fired back at Psaki.
“Jen Psaki is exactly right,” McEnany said on her Fox News show “Outnumbered.”
“You don’t hear me say that often, but good for her for giving this really sober, clear-eyed assessment to her party.
“If it’s a referendum on President Biden, Democrats lose.
“She went on in that clip to say, ‘A weak kind of Achilles heel for my party is crime.’
“And the immediate question I had was, ‘did you tell your boss that?’
“Because Jen Psaki is not a policymaker, but she does have access to the president, she did have access for a year and a half.
“She still would, presumably, especially if she had Oval Office walk-in privileges.
“So I wonder if at any point she said to him, ‘Hey, Mr. President, this is a weak spot for us.’
“Because we know it took President Biden six months into his presidency to even give an address on crime, to even acknowledge it as an issue.
“Did she push for that to happen?
“Because it is now the number four issue among voters,” she said.
