According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the recent rash of well-organized retail smash and grabs across America are being driven by the COVID-19 virus.

“So, when a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go loot a store a CVS a Nordstrom, a Home Depot until the shelves are clean you think that’s because of the pandemic?” asked Fox News reporter Peter Doocey.

“I think a root cause in a lot of communities is the pandemic, yes,” Psaki replied.
