White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has just made an incredible statement days after the Nashville school shooting.
Jean-Pierre condemned the arrest and detention of the Wall Street Journal’s Evan Gershkovich on espionage charges, calling them “ridiculous.”
She said the U.S. embassy in Moscow has engaged the Russian Foreign Ministry on the matter.
She repeated the State Department’s travel advisory warning Americans to avoid traveling to the country and to leave it immediately if they are currently residing or traveling there.
“The targeting of American citizens by the Russian government is unacceptable,” she said.
On the Inflation Reduction Act which Joe Manchin called a betrayal yesterday, she said: “If you think about the Inflation Reduction Act, when you think about fighting climate change, that is one of the most, the biggest, it’s so historic, right?
“Because it does the most piece of legislation now law to fight climate change.”
But she raised some eyebrows when she commented on the Nashville shooting, just days after a transgender person shot up a school and killed 3 innocent children.
“We’ve been very clear about these anti-LBGT bills that we’re seeing in state legislatures across the country in particular these anti-trans bills, as they attack trans kids, attack trans parents. It is shameful…
“And one of the things we saw during the midterm elections is that people don’t want their freedoms taken.
“They want us to fight for their freedoms.
“And so it is shameful, it is disturbing
“Our hearts go out to the trans community, as they are under attack right now.”
