  • Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre provoked a backlash from all sides when she appeared to downplay a rise in anti-Semitism.
  • During Monday’s White House press briefing, Jean-Pierre was asked about the rise in anti-Semitism following the recent attacks against Israel from Islamic terrorist group Hamas. Rather than address the issue, Jean-Pierre refused to comment and, instead, swiftly pivoted to condemn anti-Muslim attacks.
  • Following a widespread backlash, Jean-Pierre is now trying to gaslight the American people by claiming she didn’t hear the question.
  • “Yes, I did mishear the question,” Jean-Pierre said in a statement.
