BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee has called on the White House press secretary to “immediately apologize” for her response to a Space Force question during a Tuesday press briefing.
Alabama Republican Rep. Mike Rogers took offense to Jen Psaki’s answer in jest to a question about the future of Space Force under the Biden administration.
“Wow. Space Force. It’s the plane of today,” Psaki said, appearing to compare the question to one posed by a reporter two weeks ago, asking about Air Force One’s color scheme.
“It is an interesting question,” she said after the reporter pushed back on the validity of the question. “I am happy to check with our Space Force point of contact. I’m not sure who that is. I will find out and see if we have any update on that.”
