Biden WH Accuses Supreme Court of ‘Unconstitutional Action’ Overturning Roe
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accused the Supreme Court of “unconstitutional action” Wednesday for overturning Roe v. Wade.
“From day one, when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right, it was an unconstitutional action by them,” Jean-Pierre said, adding, “a right that’s been around for almost 50 years, a right that women had to make a decision on their bodies and how they want to start their families.”
Many online were quick to point out her “plain ignorance.”
“To be fair, [Jean-Pierre] is regularly uninformed on most (if not all) of the top issues of the day…” Chad Gilmartin, deputy spokesman for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, said.
“They gave John Kirby the day off and Karine Diversity Hire promptly reminds them never to do that again,” Jesse Kelly tweeted.
