White House Slips – Biggest Hypocrisy TO DATE
(RepublicanNews.org) – Tennis star and Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic was hoping to secure another leg of the Grand Slam for a shot at winning the illustrious title, but the White House dashed his hopes of success. On August 25, the athlete announced he would not be traveling to New York for the US Open, as he is from Serbia and the US requires all non-citizens to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations before entry.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy recently asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why the Biden administration is okay letting unvaccinated illegal aliens into the country but turns away a tennis star. Jean-Pierre was largely unresponsive to the question. She said the process of flying into the country and entering through the southern border were “two different things.”

In March, White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield said the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was starting to mandate “age-appropriate vaccinations for noncitizens” in custody. Even if that’s true, the requirement can’t possibly apply to people sneaking across the border unvaccinated and taking up residence in nearby towns. In fact, Fox News reported the coronavirus rose 900% in some border towns last year.
Regarding Djokovic, the White House doesn’t appear interested in making an exception to CDC policy. After a back and forth with reporters, Jean-Pierre refused to further comment on the instance, citing “privacy reasons.”
