Karine Jean-Pierre is set to take over as the new White House Press Secretary after Jen Psaki’s last day on May 13. Jean-Pierre, who has been praised by leftists for being the “first openly LBGTQ” press secretary, has repeatedly shared false claims. Most notably, she claimed that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and former President Trump “stole” their election wins.
“Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election …..welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump,” Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted after Donald Trump was elected in 2016.

The new press secretary also claimed that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp “stole” his 2018 election win from Stacey Abrams. “Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams,” Jean-Pierre tweeted on April 2, 2020.

Abrams, who has repeatedly claimed that the election was “stolen” from her, is running for governor again this November. She has repeatedly accused Kemp of using “voter suppression” to win the race, though she has admitted that she has “no empirical evidence” to prove it.
The Biden Administration has equated questioning the 2020 election with domestic terrorism and treason, though labelling elections where Democrats lose as “stolen” appears to be above board.
In 2021, Biden claimed that the January 6 Capitol protest was the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” while Vice President Kamala Harris compared the event to Pearl Harbor earlier this year.
In addition, Biden’s DHS has repeatedly listed “those who question the 2020 election” as a major national security threat in terrorism bulletins.
