Jean-Pierre: “That’s not how it works… It’s not like someone walks over.” Doocy: “That’s exactly what is happening!”
Tennis star Novak Djokovic cannot compete in the U.S. Open because he does not have the COVID vaccine.
You know, despite the CDC dropping the quarantine and distance guidelines and treating everyone the same.
Fox’s Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why people like Novak cannot come to America without the vaccine but migrants don’t just walk across the border.
Are you kidding me? This actually happened:
JEAN-PIERRE: “And as it relates to the tennis star, that is totally different. That is a different process. That is the U.S. Open that he is part of, and there are CDC federal guidance that he isn’t — he needs to follow.”
DOOCY: “But why is there a CDC requirement for people to fly here as opposed to people that cross the southern border?”
JEAN-PIERRE: “Look, we have talked about Title — we have talked about Title 42, right —“
DOOCY: “This has nothing to do with Title 42.”
JEAN-PIERRE: “It is. Title 42 is the CDC imperative. That is —“
DOOCY: “And you guys got rid of it because you said the pandemic is not a big deal anymore.”
JEAN-PIERRE: “That’s not — that is not how it works. It is not — every — Title 42 is very much in place, and that is the process. So there is a CDC — there is a CDC provision for folks coming through — coming through the southern border. It is not just — it is not just for tennis players. Migrants have also a CDC guidance that we have to follow, which is Title 42. So that is not the case. That is factually wrong.”
Doocy: "Why is there a CDC [vaccine] requirement for people who fly here as opposed to people who cross the border?"
Jean-Pierre: "We have talked about Title 42."
Doocy: "You guys got rid of it."
