Wow: CBS calls White House flip flops over ban (ABC still spinning)

Unlike ABC, CBS Morning On Friday, the Biden administration called for a “flip flop” on whether Russian sanctions actually worked. Of ABC Good morning AmericaHowever, like Joe Biden, he did not repeatedly oppose his own White House on the issue.

On Friday, reporter Ed O’Keefe played a clip of the president responding to a question about whether sanctions would change the course of Vladimir Putin. Biden responded with this incredible claim: “I did not say that sanctions would stop him. Prohibition never stops

O’Keefe didn’t let it stand, citing: “He did not say that, but senior administration officials said he believed it before Russia invaded.

He then played a montage of administrative officials, saying:

Jack Sullivan (National Security Adviser): The President believes that sanctions are intended to deter.

Anthony Blinken (Secretary of State): In the first instance, the purpose of sanctions is to try to prevent Russia from going to war.

The townhall was found at least six times when the administration made it clear that it was the target of the ban. So maybe ABC (and other outlets) need to ask if the White House has failed?

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said in an interview with Fox News about the Biden administration’s sanctions on Russia, “We definitely want them to have a deterrent effect.”

National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan said the president believed the sanctions were intended to deter.

“We see them as a deterrent,” Saki told a news briefing. He later insisted there was “a barrier” that could carry with the ban, claiming “we’ve seen occasional barrier effects work, haven’t we?”

On Good morning AmericaLet Cecilia Vega Biden get away from this direct conflict. He simply turned his attention to flip-flops: “President Biden has announced new sanctions on more than 400 Russian lawmakers, state-owned defense agencies and dozens of other Russian elites. The president insisted that NATO unity would defeat Putin. ”

As MRC analyst Kevin Tobar noted on Thursday, the ABCO ignored the White House’s retreat.

On NBC Today, reporter Kristen Welker softly called the hypocrisy, noting that “the Biden administration initially said the goal was” with sanctions.

Kristen Welker: The president is still pushing back on US sanctions against Russia and whether they have failed to stop Putin from going to war. What the Biden administration initially said was the goal. Now the President’s message?

Joe Biden: Sanctions never stop. You keep talking about that. Maintaining the ban, increasing the pain, will stop him.
