White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki struggled to explain why Joe Biden and Kamala Harris practice non-essential travel in violation of coronavirus rules.
This came after Biden and Harris recently came under fire for demanding that Americans remain locked-up at home while the elites can travel freely. Psaki approached a related question by pointing out that they both travel on private plans.

When asked if it was the White House’s position that the CDC travel guidelines don’t apply if you have a private plane, the press secretary stumbled and directed the journalist to ask the CDC for further clarification.
Psaki was then asked about a potential double-standard behind the enforcement of COVID-19 rules, which she also failed to explain.
