The White House blamed an epidemic of flash-and-grab robberies on the China virus pandemic. Reporter Peter Doocy asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki to weigh in on the dangerous problem that has caused big trouble in San Francisco, Los Angeles and other major cities.
“When a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go loot a store – a CVS, Nordstrom, a Home Depot – until the shelves are clean, you think that’s because of the pandemic,” Doocy asked.
“Yes,” Psaki replied.
So if you feel a sudden urge to pillage and plunder Home Depot – be sure to call your doctor immediately.
