Karine Jean-Pierre – worse than Jen?
Jen Psaki will be out the door this Friday (May 13). As CNAV reported earlier, Karine Jean-Pierre, her current deputy, will then replace her. And before she even takes the job, she has a nasty reputation.
Who is Karine Jean-Pierre?
Karine Jean-Pierre has been Deputy White House Press Secretary since the administration began. She checks off three “diversity” or “critical theory” points. Female: check. Black: check. Alternative lifestyle: check.
And herein lies her first problem. She happens to be in a civilly certified SSRSB relationship. That isn’t the problem – not for lefties, anyway. The problem is whom it’s with—specifically, one Suzanne Malveaux, national correspondent for CNN. According to American Wire, that creates an ethical issue. Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News, says it best:
This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers.
Actually, that relationship has never been quite so obvious, or fodder for a pun. But Alex Marlow isn’t the only one who noticed the conflict of interest, and is now protesting it.
American Wire further states that conscientious reporters have had a problem with the conflict of interest since last year. Her advancement to the top job makes that problem more acute than ever.
But there’s more. She definitely holds anti-Semitic, or at least anti-Israel, views. Seth Mandel quoted her saying:
You cannot call yourself a progressive while continuing to associate yourself with an organization like AIPAC.
AIPAC stands for American-Israel Political Action Committee.
He also remembers Karine Jean-Pierre standing up for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), one of the worst anti-Semites on that all-female caucus calling themselves “The Squad.”
She has other instances of anti-Semitism on her record.
Promoting the Stacey Abrams sore-loser narrative
Karine Jean-Pierre has a third issue. Specifically, she likes to think that certain Republicans, who beat out candidates she liked, cheated their way in. She said this of Donald Trump in 2016 and Brian Kemp in 2018.
Then in 2020, when COVID became a thing, she threw in that same narrative when talking about Brian Kemp’s policies about it.
Not only that, but anyone who disagrees with her is racist. Watch this video she copied and tweeted, showing Joy Reid throwing the “racist” canard at Fox.
Steve Crowder naturally asks whether Peter Doocy will make the same fireworks with her as he has done with Jen Psaki.
All of which to say: the more personnel at this White House changes, the more their relationships stay the same.
