Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, has faced several challenges throughout her tenure. Jean-Pierre not only does this, but she does it in such an awful way that everyone can tell that’s precisely what she’s doing. It frequently appears like Joe Biden’s job is to avoid answering the issue.
DOOCY TIME: Does…Biden favor any limits on abortion?— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) September 23, 2022
KJP: We've been very…clear here…I was talking specifically about Sen. Lindsey Graham–
Doocy: And your position on his plan is…15 wks is unacceptable?
KJP: I was speaking to…what Republicans are trying to do. pic.twitter.com/xpuFEpyVdC
Democrats have been particularly misleading in their portrayal of Sen. Lindsay Graham’s proposal to restrict abortions, which would prohibit them after 15 weeks of pregnancy except in situations of rape, incest, and threats to the mother’s life. The majority of Americans support this restriction, thus it makes sense.
Doocy: "A limit at 15 weeks, right?"— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) September 23, 2022
KJP: "It's a national ban, which will take us backwards & will put at risk the health of women…We're talking…privacy…contraception…marriage. That is what extreme [GOP] officials are trying to do. I'm not going to get into specifics." pic.twitter.com/pQ75xoT72p
In a debate with Fox’s Peter Doocy, Jean-Pierre was referring to it as a “nationwide ban” on abortion without mentioning the 15-week restriction.
She would not be excused by Doocy. He demanded to know whether Biden had any limits on abortion at all or what his suggested restriction would be.
Doocy: Why not get into specifics? The Republicans are saying we don't want abortion after 15 wks. Why can't you say how many weeks [Biden] thinks the limit is?— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) September 23, 2022
KJP: As you know, Kevin McCarthy put out the GOP agenda
Doocy: I'm not asking about [him]. I'm asking about Joe Biden pic.twitter.com/hfoLT3m8gN
Then she lied and said she had responded to his query even though she hadn’t.
It’s admirable that Peter Doocy pursued her and exposed their deception and reluctance to tell the truth to the American people.
The conversation demonstrates how radical Biden and the Democratic position are. They won’t even put any limitations on it when you ask, so it is basically OK up to that point. Because the majority of Americans would disagree, they don’t want to admit that. However, if they decline to specify a constraint, they are essentially stating that they have none.
