Karine Jean Pierre was met with strong criticism when she claimed the trans community was “under attack” days after the shootings at a Christian School, in Tennessee.
The White House Press Secretary was criticized by “Outnumbered” panelists for comments made at a Thursday press conference after the Nashville school shooting.
Jean-Pierre stated that “we’re seeing more hateful bills.” “They are being attacked right this moment.” “The president has stated repeatedly that he supports them. ”
Kayleigh McEnany co-host of Outnumbered criticized the White House for using the moment to support transgender people. She stated that seven fingers were raised by protesters at Tennessee’s state capitol building to honor seven victims of the mass shooting.
“There are six,” McEnany said. “We want to be exceedingly clear here. There were six Christians who were victims of that shooting and one murderer.”
Co-host Emily Compagno then addressed Jean-Pierre’s claims, saying the “hateful bills” are designed to protect the freedoms of Christians and Americans alike.
Compagno said that it was “horrifying” that Jean-Pierre and others are taking away the attention from the Christian victims of the attack.
Bill Hemmer was cohost of America’s Newsroom and noted that Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee had tried to fund school resource officers but was “nowhere in the Biden administration.”
Hemmer stated that there is another problem: insufficient information about the motive.
“On Monday afternoon, we were told by Nashville police that there was plenty of evidence supporting her actions. They haven’t seen much evidence. “Why haven’t we been told where it is? ”
Martha MacCallum, the host of “The Story”, described it as “disturbing” that the manifesto hadn’t been released yet. ”
We heard it was an attack against a Christian school that included six innocent persons She claimed that they were the victims, referring to seven protesters with seven fingers.
MacCallum explained to the panel that Tennessee laws allow people to prove that someone is a danger to others or themselves. It is very difficult for them to buy a firearm. This could prevent situations like the one in Nashville.
“This doesn’t concern what drove the killer to kill these people,” MacCallum said that this has never been the case in history.
“These laws are in force at both the state and federal levels. “
