White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday blamed Americans for the supply chain crisis.
Psaki said Americans purchasing too many goods online is the “root cause” of the supply chain crisis thanks to a labor shortage created by Joe Biden.
“What’s your message to Americans who are still so worried about getting their Christmas gifts on time?” a reporter asked Psaki.
Psaki blamed Americans and claimed the supply chain crisis is a minor scalability issue due to the popularity of online shopping.
“So many people across the country are purchasing more goods online. Maybe some of it is from habits that developed during the pandemic when people weren’t leaving their homes. Some of it is because we’ve seen an economic recovery that has been underway…” Psaki said.
According to the American Trucking Association, the industry is short 80,000 truck drivers which in turn has caused cargo ships to be anchored off the coast of Southern California.
Meanwhile, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is on extended paternity leave as the crisis gets worse going into the holiday season.
Psaki has no shame.
