Biden Regime Caught in ANOTHER Lie: Spox John Kirby Struggles to Explain How Biden Admin Was Able to Track Balloons During Trump Years Since Radar Was Just Upgraded to Spot Them (VIDEO)

After the first China spy balloon was spotted by tens of thousands of Americans crossing the continental US, the Biden administration came out and claimed this also occurred during the Trump years.

In early February the Biden regime admitted to the public that a China spy balloon crossed over the US. The balloon was first spotted a week earlier in Alaska back on January 28. It flew from there into Canada and down into the continental US. The balloon then entered Idaho and crossed the US for the next four days. The China spy balloon was then shot down after it left US territory and had collected all of its data for the Chinese Communist Party. This was an unprecedented event in US history.

The fake news media the next weekend played clean-up for the Biden regime.  The media hoped to convince Americans that these China spy balloons cross the US all of the time.  In fact, fake news insisted that this happened during the Trump years – three times.

On Sunday morning a FOX News reporter pushed back on these claims. She spoke with Michael Bolton, Ric Grenell, Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and others who said they had never heard of this happening. And if it did occur, they were not notified – which is just as bad.

Former Trump advisor John Bolton, former DNI Ric Grenell, Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, Former Secretary of State and CIA Direcor Mike Pompeo, President Trump , Defense Secretary Mattis, and former DNI John Ratcliffe, spoke out that that this was a lie.

And General Keith Kellogg, who was the Executive Secretary and Chief of Staff of the United States National Security Council in the Trump administration, says he was never notified!

This never happened during the Trump years. And if it did happen, the top officials in Trump administration were not notified – which is just as bad.

This story continued to change by the hour.

The Pentagon eventually said that there were SIX Chinese spy balloons spotted over US territory during the Trump years.

But no one was notified in leadership in the Trump administration or the US intelligence department.

On Friday CBS White House reporter Weijia Jiang asked NSC Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby on how the Biden Administration was able to track Chinese spy balloons during the Trump years since the radar was just upgraded to track them.

Kirby struggled to come up with a plausible response.

White House reporter Simon Ateba posted this exchange on Twitter.
