Biden’s New Press Secretary Turns out to Be a Big Fan of Conspiracy Theories – Opinion

Remember when denying the legitimacy of any election was not only disqualifying but also got you kicked off Jake Tapper’s low-rated CNN show? I wonder if that rule will hold for Karine Jean-Pierre, who is set to take over as Joe Biden’s press secretary on May 13th. We all probably know the answer.

Apparently, Jean-Pierre has a colorful history on social media, and now some of her old tweets are painting a far different picture than the one she’s tried to present since joining the White House. Jean-Pierre, far from the straight-talking and level-headed woman she would like people to think she is, is a conspiratorial lunatic.

I’m literally shaking as I type this because of Jean-Pierre’s unfounded attack on the legitimacy of our elections. After all, I’ve been assured that our system is the “most secure in history” and that fraud could not possibly affect the outcome of any race. This suggestion is not polite. Yet, here we have Biden’s new mouthpiece suggesting that the 2016 election was stolen by a…drone?

I’m not even sure what she’s talking about, but clearly, Jean-Pierre had a first-class seat on the Hillary train and bought into the idea that Russia “hacked” the election in order to get Donald Trump elected. It didn’t matter that this nonsense was, in fact, absurd. But remember, if you question Joe Biden’s legitimacy, you’re trying to destroy our “democracy.” So much the concern over the “Big Lie,” right?

Given all of that, it’s no shock at all that Jean-Pierre also buys into the idea that Stacey Abrams, who lost her election in Georgia by over 50,000 votes, had victory snatched away from her via nefarious means. There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that. The numbers show that the 2018 vote was not suppressed. However, once again we can see the double standard. Democrats may assert something and Republicans could say something similar. This is where the gnashing of teeth begins.

Jen Psaki is out, and that’s certainly a welcome development given how arrogantly dishonest she was. But don’t think for a second that Jean-Pierre isn’t going to be just as bad. Contrary to the glowing profiles, she’s a rabid leftwing partisan who will not do anything to help rid the stink of corruption plaguing the Biden White House. Jean-Pierre, who checks many intersectional boxes, will be likely treated differently in briefings. It is time to start betting on who will be the first journalist to accuse Peter Doocyof racism.
