Tweet of the Day- A Coup, Not a Foreign Assault


Count me out.


Asked about the then-upcoming release of the report from the January 6 committee, Jean-Pierre had in full replied

So I’ll first say, and you’ve heard me say this many times, and the President as well: We’ve been very clear from the beginning that what we saw on January 6th was the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War. And the President has been very clear: Our democracy continues and remains under threat, and we all have a — have a part to protect it.

The committee has been doing important bipartisan work to get to the truth of what happened on that very day so we can — we can make — so we can make sure that that doesn’t happen again. So I’ll leave it there.

Jean-Pierre did not criticize the USA nor minimize any other attack ever upon the nation. The events of January 6 did constitute "the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War." 

I'm not a fan of Karine Jean-Pierre, who holds down a position that is clearly too big for her. But a fellow who identifies as a "pastor" and " Christian saved by grace through faith in Jesus" should set an example for honesty instead of going down the path of demagoguery.
