NPR Finally Asks Jean-Pierre A Real Question

_jean-pierre


It’s rare, but it does happy when all of the stars line up just so—NPR actually did their job for once and asked White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre a tough and telling question. The White House has painted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the devil for sending 50 illegals to Martha’s Vineyard in Mass.

The taxpayer-funded reporter,  Franco Ordoñez grilled the Press Sec on why Biden has not attempted to work with Republican Senators, like DeSantis, to solve the border crisis.

Specifically, he asked, “Did the White House ever try to get in touch with Governor DeSantis or Governor Abbott about this to try to reach some type of understanding or a solution?”

She could have just said “no’, but instead Jean-Pierre babbled on about how Republicans won’t work with them. She ignored the fact that the Biden administration disregarded DeSantis and did not inform him about the planes full of illegals he would send to Florida. She also did not mention how the administration has ignored the Red state’s call for help. Here is what she said:

“I mean, there’s no understanding to be reached. They are using people who are leaving a commun- — communist countries as political stunt, instead of — instead of maybe what they should do is call on their senators in their — in their state. Call on, you know, Senator Marco Rubio. Ask Senator Rick Scott why is it that they did not vote for historic funding when it comes to Department of Homeland Security, making sure that we are dealing with this issue. That’s not what they did. This is, again, a political stunt that they are taking for their own — for their own political narrative. It is not about really dealing with what is happening and coming up with a solution.”

The NPR reporter didn’t just end it there, though. He pressed Jean-Pierre to answer if Biden was against having the blue states shoulder some of that burden caused by the sudden increase in population. Jean-Pierre criticized DeSantis for contacting news outlets ahead of his supposed ‘stunt’ adding that is not shouldering the burden:

“It is a cruel, premeditated political stunt. That is not what they’re — that is what they are doing. And so, we’re always — we’re always happy to have conversations about ways to further improve border processing. And we could be doing more if — again, if Republicans in Congress would stop blocking our efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform and also funding — historical funding for DHS. So, again, this is not what border [burden] sharing looks like. They have used the lives of people who are fleeing persecution from communist countries, using them as a political stunt.”

Ordoñez asked if the Republican governors would be more transparent with Biden if they would then receive aid but Jean-Pierre stated that the GOP would have to pass Biden’s bills to get help. Adding that they needed to ‘help’ fix the issuel.

Watch

I understand that the NPR reporter might be hard to hear. Below is the transcript of the interaction discussed here:

FRANCO ORDOÑEZ: Did the White House ever try to get in touch with Governor DeSantis or Governor Abbott about this to try to reach some type of understanding or a solution?

KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: I mean, there’s no understanding to be reached. They are using people who are leaving a commun- — communist countries as political stunt, instead of — instead of maybe what they should do is call on their senators in their — in their state. Call on, you know, Senator Marco Rubio. Ask Senator Rick Scott why is it that they did not vote for historic funding when it comes to Department of Homeland Security, making sure that we are dealing with this issue. That’s not what they did. This is, again, a political stunt that they are taking for their own — for their own political narrative. It is not about really dealing with what is happening and coming up with a solution.

ORDOÑEZ: And in terms of — in terms of that and understanding that the White House does not support the use of people as a political stunt — but does the White House support the idea or the concepts of states further from the border accepting some more migrants, kind of sharing some of the burden of state resources being used by increasing number of migrants, whether they be from Venezuela, Cuba, or Nicaragua?

JEAN-PIERRE: So, the way that we see it is alerting Fox News and not city or state officials about a plan to abandon children fleeing communism on the side of the street is not burden sharing. That is not the definition that we see of burden sharing. It is a cruel, premeditated political stunt. That is not what they’re — that is what they are doing. And so, we’re always — we’re always happy to have conversations about ways to further improve border processing. And we could be doing more if — again, if Republicans in Congress would stop blocking our efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform and also funding — historical funding for DHS. So, again, this is not what border [burden] sharing looks like. They have used the lives of people who are fleeing persecution from communist countries, using them as a political stunt.

ORDOÑEZ: If the governors were more open about and transparent, would that be more acceptable?

JEAN-PIERRE: What we’re saying is the President has put forward — on day one, he put forward a comprehensive immigration reform, ways to deal with what is at stake here days — the ways to deal with a broken immigration system. He put that forward on day one and what we’re asking is for Republicans in Congress to help us come up with a solution to look at what this President put forward on day one, and they are not doing that. Instead, they’re doing political stunts.
