White House Press Secretary Under Fire For Saying 2016 Election Was Stolen

The White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, has been confronted with receipts of her past tweets claiming that the 2016 election was stolen.

In 2016, Jean-Pierre took to Twitter to lay baseless accusations against the former President, claiming that he had stolen the election. She also accused Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp of stealing his election in 2018. 

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy recently confronted her. With Biden, she has repeatedly accused MAGA Republicans of being extremists for arguing that there was election misconduct in 2020.

Just last week, the President added semi-fascism to his vocabulary for republicans, saying that they are a threat to democracy and was supported by his wingwoman, Jean-Pierre.

Other than the press secretary, several other democrats and far-left media accused Trump of stealing the election or conducting one malpractice. Yet, they were neither arrested nor locked up. No one also accused them of being extremists trying to destroy the United States. 

The democrat President, who campaigned himself as a good fit for the United States as a unifier, is being divisive with his insulting claims and only bringing disunity. Yet, the MAGA Republicans are the extremists. 

Biden, while giving a speech in Philadelphia last week, claimed, “MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”

Doocy asked Jean-Pierre to explain what makes the republicans extremists but leaves her and her President out of the faction, recalling the President’s speech and her tweets.

Jean-Pierre cut him off, saying, “Oh, I knew this was coming. I was waiting, Peter, for when you were going to ask me that question.” She moved to defend herself, adding that Doocy’s reasonable comparison was ridiculous.

Doocy asked, “You tweeted Trump stole an election. You tweeted Brian Kemp stole an election. If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn’t it then?”

Biden’s press secretary responded, “Let’s be really clear: That comparison you just made is ridiculous.”

She continued in her defence strategy, “Governor Kemp won the election in Georgia. I have been clear about that. I have said President Trump won the election in 2016, and I have been clear about that. What we are talking about right now is, let’s not forget, what happened on Jan. 6th, 2021. We saw an insurrection, a mob, that was incited by the person who occupied [the White House]. … It was an attack on our democracy.”

Though her recent claims do not seem to match her previous ones, it is the new normal in America to take whatever a Democrat says as the truth and the law. 

The so-called unifier added, “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of the law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”

However, dividing the country into halves and casting aside parts of the country that do not have the same political values is not considered as actions of an extremist.
