What A TOOL! Watch John Kirby Get Turned Into Minced Meet At This Weeks Presser
National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby has no idea what he's doing and proved to be just another tool at this weeks presser. During the briefing White House correspondent hammered Kirby over Biden's weak support for the protesters in China.
Kirby's only defense was to passively say that the White House supports all peaceful protests and explained that that is enough support.
CBS’s Ed O’Keefe O’Keefe poked holes in this esoteric statement of support: “In that realm, the statement you issued — or that was issued earlier today didn’t include any explicit calls for China to stop detaining and harming protesters and journalists. Why not?”
Kirby didn’t go any further other than to add “we’re going to watch this closely, and we’ll see where things go.”
AFP’s Sebastian Smith brought up an important question as to whether this has received any additional priority from the President: “Could you give us a sense of how much the President is engaging with this issue? Is he watching it personally, you know, getting updated more than on, maybe, some other things?”
Kirby scoffed at that, insisting Biden’s “staying briefed on what’s going on inside China” before joking “I’ve never been in the room where he wasn’t, like, closely briefed.”
Coming from the left, Yahoo! News’s Alexander Nazaryan argued people “assume that the United States supports peaceful protest around the world” and such a take isn’t “a novel position.”
Given the stakes, Nazarayan wondered, why hasn’t the administration gone further “to...assert the rights of people, advocating for freedom and democracy more forcefully than perhaps we have.”
Kirby cowardly sought to not anger the communist thugs and replied the U.S. has reemphasized in this moment it’s ongoing belief in “free assembly and...peaceful protest” and that this is an issue “for the Chinese people and the Chinese government to speak to.”
Doocy stepped in to change up topics for a moment and hammered Kirby for Biden's refusal to drill for domestic oil bringing up the lifting of regulations in Venezuela to start drilling.
Doocy snapped,"does the President think there’s some benefit to the climate to drill oil in Venezuela and not here?"
The communist Chinese government rushed its citizens into physical altercations during a sweeping tyrannical lockdown following their zero-covid claims. Other countries are screaming about human rights violations while Chinese people take to the streets in protest—The White House's stance is certainly weak.
China has such a knuckle-hold over it's people and it's kinda a fool's game not to support them in protests, especially as the government threatens war with the US. Seems like the best time to extend an olive branch to the 1.44 billion Chinese citizens. I can't think of a better way to avoid war than supporting them as they attempt to overthrow their supreme rulers.
