The controversial Critical Race Theory (CRT) has become the top discussion in the White House, as  Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been accused of "blatantly parroting," CRT talking points in recent press conferences by the Young Americans Foundation.

Psaki, who has time and time again defended the Vice President over the border crisis, while shielding President Biden from fair press coverage has painted herself into a corner over CRT.

Psaki's response to the statewide bans of CRT education was to call Republican rejections of the philosophy "absurd," and has claimed it is "responsible," to instruct students about the systemic racism CRT speaks of.

Now, Psaki has herself gone beyond commenting on the idea of CRT itself and has applied it to her usual politics, as seen in the Tweet below posted by Young Americans Foundation who according to their Twitter biography "introduces students to conservatism through our campus programs and conferences. The Foundation also preserves the Reagan Ranch."

When asked a question this week, Psaki answered a reporter's question which she claimed "there is no question, that there continues to be systemic racism in our country, we see that in a range of sectors, including in some learning institutions," adding "That's why the president is continuing to make racial equity and addressing racial equity an essential priority, a crisis he would like to address and focus on as president."

Critical Race Theory after being the centerpiece of American politics for a couple of weeks now has been banned in roughly 20 states now.
