Psaki Distances Herself From Biden's Lies About Kyle Rittenhouse After Being Grilled Over Debunked 'White Supremacist' Claim

Share

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to endorse Democrat President Joe Biden’s debunked lie about teenage lifeguard kyle Rittenhouse being a “white supremacist” after being grilled by a reporter on Monday, insisting “what I’m not gonna speak to right now is anything about an ongoing trial, nor the President’s past comments” while peddling vague comments about “vigilantes patrolling our communities with assault weapons.”

“Why did President Biden suggest that Kyle Rittenhouse, on trial in Kenosha, is a white supremacist?” Fox’s Peter Doocy asked Psaki.

“So Peter, what I’m not gonna speak to right now is anything about an ongoing trial, nor the President’s past comments,” Psaki deflected. “Uh, what I can reiterate for you is the president’s, uh, view, uh, that, we shouldn’t have, uh, broadly speaking, vigilantes patrolling our communities with assault weapons.”

Doocy replied, “But the president has spoken to it, already. kyle Rittenhouse’s mom came out saying that the president defamed her son, and claims that when the president suggested that her son is a white supremacist he was doing that to win votes. Is that what happened?”

“I just have nothing more to speak to an ongoing case where closing arguments were just made,” Psaki said. The White House did not take the same route during the George Floyd trial, as Biden repeatedly interjected his personal opinion during the ongoing court proceedings.
