Joe Biden’s made an endless parade of horrendous personnel decisions.
At the top of that list was naming Karine Jean-Pierre as White House press secretary.
But there is the sense that even Democrats know this to be true, and now Joe Biden replaced Karine Jean-Pierre in this humiliating way.
When Biden named Karine Jean-Pierre as Jen Psaki’s replacement her chief qualifications appeared to be identity politics.
Biden celebrated the fact that she was the first black, female, homosexual press secretary in American history.
But what Jean-Pierre wasn’t was good at was her job.
Jean-Pierre struggled to answer any question she didn’t have a prepared answer for in her notorious binder that Jean-Pierre makes sure is in front of her at all times during the press briefings.
And so, when Biden faced one of the most sensitive foreign policy and political crises of his presidency it didn’t come as a surprise that Jean-Pierre found herself on the bench.
Facing sagging poll numbers from the pro-Hamas Democrat Party base, Biden caved in to demands from the left and pressured Israel to agree to a ceasefire so aid could enter Gaza and Hamas could release some of the hostages they seized on October 7 in exchange for the Israelis releasing prisoners.
Biden leaning on Israel for the ceasefire achieved Hamas’s number-one goal of remaining in power in Gaza as it sabotaged the Israeli military efforts to destroy the terrorist group.
To sell this deal to the public, the Biden administration sent National Security Council Spokesman John Kirby on Martha MacCallum’s Fox News show where MacCallum grilled Kirby on how the administration balanced freeing the hostages with Israel’s justified demand to wipe out Hamas as ending the terrorist threat would serve effectively as a permanent ceasefire and if Joe Biden’s sinking political fortunes played any role in the desire for a ceasefire.
Kirby tried as best as he could to make lemonade out of lemons and not admit the obvious – that Joe Biden is terrified the pro-Hamas Democrat Party base will stay home next November so Joe Biden handed Hamas their biggest victory to date.
“[W]e have listened to staff members here at the National Security Council and across the administration from all different communities, from the Jewish community, from the Muslim community, Palestinian Arab community. We’re listening to everybody because they all have a view and we respect that and want to hear their thoughts. The president continues to work this issue very, very hard. And from the president’s perspective, and you heard him talk about this a little bit yesterday, what we’ve been doing has been having results,” Kirby began.
“Israel needs to be able to defend itself against a truly genocidal threat that Hamas poses. And so we’re going to continue to give them the tools and the capabilities to go after that threat, as well as lessons learned from our own experience in urban warfare against terrorists. We’re also working,” Kirby concluded.
Karine Jean-Pierre would be lost at sea in this setting.
MacCallum would ask real, thorough questions and Jean-Pierre wouldn’t be able to stick to the scripted talking points.
To avoid an even bigger public relations debacle the administration kept Jean-Pierre on the sidelines for this Fox News interview.
