The veteran White House communications adviser, who just hours earlier announced that Karine Jean-Pierre would replace her in a matter of days, provided an important lesson to her successor. She made sure the press corps knew that Biden understands and shares the anger that abortion advocates are feeling this week.
“For all those women, men, others who feel outraged, who feel scared, who feel concerned, he hears them, he shares that concern and that horror of what he saw in that draft opinion,” she said.
Only after establishing that Biden feels their pain did Psaki call for the protests to remain peaceful. “We should not be resorting to violence in any way, shape or form,” she said.
I’m waiting for someone to explain to me how this is drastically different from Donald Trump’s “very fine people” remark after Charleston.
I’ll probably wait about as long for that explanation as I wait for the Washington Post and other media outlets who are attempting to paint conservatives as domestic terrorists to explain how left-wing groups doxxing the Supreme Court justices and calling for protestors to visit their homes is remarkably different from anything we’ve seen out of right-wing nut-jobs.
