President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred to herself as a “historic figure” on Saturday after barely serving one year in her role and by all accounts turning in a shaky job performance.
The press secretary’s comments were made during an interview on The Grio. She said:
“A year in this role, there’s been a couple of things that have made me incredibly proud. Many things have made me incredibly proud to be at that podium during this historic month.
“This is a historic administration.
“I’m a historic figure and I certainly walk in history every day.
“But this is also a historic making administration because of this president.
“Like so many in the LGBTQ community coming out wasn’t an easy thing to do.
“My family was traditional and conservative; being gay in my family wasn’t something that you mention out loud or celebrated.
“The beauty of America is its freedoms, and the promise that you can achieve your dreams, no matter your race, sex, country of origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”
“It’s not lost on me, the communities that I represent and what I mean to those communities and how they view me at the podium and how important it is to them.
“I’m representing the Black community, the Caribbean community, the LGBTQ community.
“And it is incredibly important to me that I do that well.”
The Biden admin is more concerned about chalking up historic firsts rather than finding the most qualified people for the job.
The results speak for themselves.
