Independent journalist Megyn Kelly criticized White House press secretary Jen Psaki, saying Sunday that she didn’t have the courage to call out Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“Psaki projects total fear in every exchange. Her meekness is maddening. So I guess we shouldn’t be surprised she lacks the courage to do as even the Dem AG of NYS has done and call Cuomo’s lie a lie,” Kelly tweeted.

Psaki, who made an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” skirted a yes-no question from Jonathan Karl about Cuomo’s leadership and reports that he had hidden coronavirus data from his state’s nursing homes and threatened Democratic New York Assemblyman Ron Kim.

Kelly was not alone in criticizing Psaki — Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, “The View” host Meghan McCain, and nationally syndicated radio host Dana Loesch joined in as well.
