Joe Biden keeps saying that Republicans are a threat to democracy because they don’t accept election results, but Biden’s own White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Trump ‘stole’ the 2016 election.
Somehow, no one in the media has asked her about this, until now.
Peter Doocy of FOX News asked about it this week and of, course, she didn’t have a good answer for the question because there isn’t a good answer for this.
The Hill reports:
Fox’s Peter Doocy asks White House press secretary if 2016 election was stolen
Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday if she believes the 2016 election was “stolen” following criticisms leveled by President Biden against the GOP.
Doocy was referencing a number of tweets Jean-Pierre sent around the time of former President Trump’s election, during which she suggested the 2016 presidential contest and the 2018 Georgia governor’s race were not conducted fairly.
“If we’re all in agreement that it is incorrect to say the 2020 election was stolen, what about the 2016 election?” Doocy asked Jean-Pierre during the White House daily briefing with reporters .
“We’re gonna focus on the here and now. We’re going to focus on what’s happening today,” she replied.
Jean-Pierre also criticized the Fox News reporter for his question.
“Let’s be really clear that that comparison that you made is just ridiculous,” Jean-Pierre said. “I was talking specifically at that time of what was happening with voting rights and what was danger of voting rights.”
As Doocy was setting up his question, Jean-Pierre interjected “Oh, I knew this was coming.”
“I was waiting, Peter, when you were going to ask me that question,” she joked.
Here’s the video:
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?"

It’s not a ridiculous question at all.
KJP is just a liar.
