White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre schooled Fox correspondent Peter Doocy during the daily press briefing today, and while he tried to suggest the Biden administration hasn’t been vocal condemning anti-Israel demonstrations in the United States, Jean-Pierre made it clear he was wrong and trying to push a narrative that simply doesn’t exist.
Doocy began by asking, “Does President Biden think the anti-Israel protesters in this country are extremists?”
The press secretary responded, “What I can say is that we’ve been very clear about this,” Jean-Pierre explained. “When it comes to anti-Semitism, there is no place. We have to make sure that we speak against it very loud and be very clear about that.”
Jean-Pierre then added that Biden had decided in large part to run in 2020 after seeing white supremacists marching in Charlottesville, Virginia as they chanted, “Jews will not replace us!”
Doocy, however, wasn’t content with that answer, so he continued to push:
Jean-Pierre reiterated that the administration was “calling out any form of hate.”
“Does President Biden look at these anti-Israel protests on college campuses and think it’s nice to see that the country’s youth are so involved, or does he think the next generation is doomed?” Doocy asked.
“Here’s the thing, there’s no place for hate in America,” Jean-Pierre replied, only to be interrupted by Doocy.
That’s when the press secretary dropped the hammer on Doocy.
That’s a stark contrast with failed one-term former president Donald Trump, who insisted there were “very fine people” on both sides of what transpired in Charlottesville.
There is no such thing as a “fine” anti-Semite, bigot, or racist. They’re a stain on this country and they deserve to be called out and shamed in the strongest terms possible.
