Leftwing Washington Post Gives White House ‘Three Pinocchios’ for Claiming Republicans are Defunding Police

The Washington Post’s Fact-Checker dinged the White House for claiming Republicans weredefunding the police,” giving the eyebrow-raising talking point “Three Pinocchios.” Recent remarks by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and senior Biden adviser Cedric Richmond had sought to turn the tables on months of some progressive Democrats advocating for slicing or even dismantling municipal police department budgets. Their logic was GOP opposition to the $1.9-trillion coronavirus relief bill passed this year amounted to supporting defunding police, since $350 billion was allocated for state and local government aid.

Never heard a single Republican ever call for defunding the police. But a noted liar like Jen Psaki can twist you into knots thinking they have.
