White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently dodged a question concerning the comparison between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) migrant relocation program and the relocation of migrants under the direction of the Biden administration.
When asked about the comparison, Jean-Pierre instead chose to focus on the solutions being put forth by the Biden administration.

“DeSantis, apparently, said it was essentially no different than what the federal government has done in sending, you know, flights in the middle of the night — that’s how it’s characterized, you know, taking migrants to various different states,” began the reporter. “Do you have a response to that?”
“We are offering solutions,” she answered. “That’s what the Biden Harris Administration has been doing since day one, including on the first day, putting forth a comprehensive immigration reform to deal with this issue.”
Jean-Pierre has been very vocal in her criticism of DeSantis’ recent actions, most recently the transportation of 48 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, where the Obamas have a residence.
“There’s a legal way of doing this and for managing migrants,” Jean-Pierre stated. “Republican governors interfering in that process and using migrants as political pawns, is, is shameful, is reckless, and just plain wrong.”
Yet when questioned about the possibility of the same thing occurring under the Biden administration, Jean-Pierre deflected.
BlazeTV’s Dave Rubin said this is normal Democratic rhetoric.
“They just answer questions that have nothing to do with nothing,” stated Rubin. “They say words to get to the period in the sentence, so the sentence is over, and they’ve done nothing but take you on a ride of B.S.”
Speaking about Jean-Pierre dodging the question, Rubin was incredulous.
“I don’t know what question she’s answering,” he said. “It doesn’t matter.”
