WATCH: Biden Press Secretary CORNERED on Camera
(RepublicanDaily.org) – White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has repeatedly found herself on the receiving end of conservative criticism lately. On August 29, she claimed there were no migrants crossing the southwest border on foot who had not received COVID-19 vaccinations, prompting ridicule from social media users. Now, she’s landed herself in hot water over statements she made about election fraud.
On Tuesday, September 6, Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy challenged the press secretary over previous tweets she posted claiming former President Donald Trump and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) had stolen elections to win their respective positions. Doocy inquired why these claims were any different from Trump’s position that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him. This question came in light of President Joe Biden’s recent comments that MAGA Republicans do not respect democracy.
The press secretary stated Doocy’s comparison was “ridiculous.” She said her social media posts at the time were based around “voting rights.” Doocy pushed back by asking her to elaborate on why she felt his question was “ridiculous,” but she refused to go into any further discussion.
DOOCY: "You tweeted in 2016 that Trump stole an election."
KJP: "I knew this was coming."
DOOCY: "If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn't it then?"
KJP: "That comparison that you made is just ridiculous." pic.twitter.com/EJyoykV1Ta

Do you think Karine Jean-Pierre has adequately addressed this issue with her response, or is further clarification necessary?
