Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy had a very memorable back and forth with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre on Tuesday when they discussed fraudulent elections.
Doocy countered the White House's argument that MAGA Republicans are a threat to Democracy by reading Jean-Pierre's tweets from 2016 where she made claims the 2016 election was "stolen."
He read tweets from 2016 where Jean-Pierre said Trump and Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp “stole an election.”
“If denying an election is extreme now, why wasn’t it then?” he asked.
“So let’s be very clear that that comparison that you made is just ridiculous,” she fired back.
“How is that ridiculous?” Doocy pressed.
“You’re asking me a question, let me answer it,” she responded. “I was talking specifically at that time of what was happening with voting rights and what was in danger of voting rights. That’s what I was speaking to at the time and here’s the thing, I have said, Governor Kemp won the election in Georgia. I’ve been clear about that. I have said President Trump won the election in 2016 and I’ve been clear about that.”

Biden said that denying election results is an unacceptable threat to democracy. But KJP Tweeted Trump stole the 2016 election and Brian Kemp stole the Georgia governor’s selection. @pdoocy brings the heat. Enjoy: pic.twitter.com/W61ln5QYnB

“What we are talking about right now is let’s not forget what happened on January 6, 2021, where we saw an insurrection, a mob that was incited by the person who occupied this campus, this facility at that time,” she said. “And it was an attack on our democracy. Let’s not forget people died that day. Law enforcement were attacked that day. That was the danger that we were seeing at the time. That’s what the president has called out and that’s what he’s going to do continue to call out.”
“So yes, when you have MAGA Republicans, an extreme part of Republicans, who just deny or do not want to really say what exactly happened on that day or say it was a protest when it clearly was not a peaceful protest. That’s not what we saw on that day. Yes, the president’s going to call that out.”
Rules for three but not for me is a common credo of the left. It's good to see Doocy hold her accountable since she did exactly what President Biden accuses the "MAGA Republicans" of doing.
