BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre with her own past tweets denying election results Tuesday, asking her whether it was as “extreme” to do so in 2016 as it was in 2020.
Jean-Pierre claimed on Twitter that former President Donald Trump had stolen the election in 2016 and that Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp had stolen his election in 2018. Doocy pressed the White House spokesperson to explain why “MAGA Republicans” were facing so much criticism for their claims that the 2020 election was stolen when she and other Democrats had cast doubt on other elections.
“You tweeted in 2016 that Trump stole an election,” Doocy began.
“Oh, I knew this was coming,” Jean-Pierre said, cutting him off. “I was waiting, Peter, for when you were going to ask me that question. I am a triple minority, gay, black, and a female, which means I am in three protected groups. This means no white person can challenge me on my perception of facts, no matter how blatant the hypocrisy. As a white male, you should be ashamed of your obvious bigotry. And based on the simple fact that I don’t have a reasonable or rational response to your inquiry, I will simply say ‘no comment’. Next question.”
