ABC Ignores Kavanaugh Threat to Gush Over Jean-Pierre’s LGBTQ Identity

Political News

On Wednesday, a deranged pro-abortion leftist went to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s house to attempt to assassinate him, thankfully he got cold feet and called the police on himself. Regardless it is a huge news story that many in the leftist media have refused to cover

Such was the case on Sunday when ABC’s This Week spent the entire hour without even a mention of the attempted assassination of a Supreme Court Justice. Instead, co-anchor Martha Raddatz spent time swooning over the Democrats January 6 committee hearings, followed by an interview with the survivors of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shootings. 

In the last full segment of the show, Raddatz introduced a fawning interview between White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and correspondent Gio Benitez for “Pride Month.”

“At her first press conference back in may, newly appointed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre marked the many firsts she brings to her role” Raddatz announced before previewing the interview.

“In a new ABC News special ‘Pride: to be Seen,’ correspondent Gio Benitez sat down with Jean-Pierre at the White House to discuss how her LGBTQ+ identity has shaped her and the unique position she’s now in” Raddatz gushed. 

Parroting the Democrat Party line, Benitez asked Pierre: “We are seeing so many laws across the country that many see as anti-LGBTQ+. I wonder for you as a mother what do you think?” 

Jean-Pierre responded to the softball question by noting how she is “always concerned as a mom because you’re trying to raise a little person that’s going to be the best of themselves. I see those laws and I feel for young people who are in school, right, who are trying to just be who they are.”

She added that’s “why I’m here, to continue to fight and to make sure that we hopefully deliver and change things and make people’s lives better.”

A concerned Benitez noted that “The Equality Act is something that the President called the top priority for the first 100 days of the presidency but he hasn’t been able to push that through Congress.” He asked Jean-Pierre if Biden “underestimat[ed] how hard that would be to pass?”

She disagreed that he underestimated it, noting that Biden “knows how the Senate works.”   

Jean-Pierre claimed Biden “calling on Congress to act does matter. Is it going to take time? Unfortunately, it will. But does it mean that we stop fighting? Absolutely not.” 

Raddatz then jumped back in and told viewers to check out the full interview on the streaming service Hulu. ABC News has plenty of time to make specials for “Pride Month” but apparently has no interest in covering (or even mentioning) the assassination attempt on Brett Kavanaugh during their flagship Sunday show. 

This shameful bias by omission was made possible by CarFax. Their information is linked.

KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: I am a black, gay, immigrant woman, the first of all three of those to hold this position. I would not be here today if it were not for generations of barrier-breaking people before me. I stand on their shoulders. 

MARTHA RADDATZ: At her first press conference back in may, newly appointed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre marked the many firsts she brings to her role. In a new ABC News special “Pride: to be Seen,” correspondent Gio Benitez sat down with Jean-Pierre at the White House to discuss how her LGBTQ+ identity has shaped her and the unique position she’s now in. 

GIO BENITEZ: We are seeing so many laws across the country that many see as anti-LGBTQ+. I wonder for you as a mother what do you think? 

JEAN-PIERRE: I am always concerned as a mom because you’re trying to raise a little person that’s going to be the best of themselves. I see those laws and I feel for young people who are in school, right, who are trying to just be who they are. That’s why I’m here, to continue to fight and to make sure that we hopefully deliver and change things and make people’s lives better. 

JOE BIDEN: I also hope Congress gets to my desk the Equality Act to protect LGBTQ Americans. 

BENITEZ: President Biden has urged Congress to protect LGBTQ+ rights with legislation like the Equality Act which has passed the House of Representatives but stalled in the 50/50 divided Senate. The Equality Act is something that the President called the top priority for the first 100 days of the presidency but he hasn’t been able to push that through Congress. Did he underestimate how hard that would be to pass? 

JEAN-PIERRE: No, I don’t think so he underestimated it. Because remember, he used to be in Congress. He knows how the Senate works. He knows it takes time but he knows you have to keep fighting to get things done. Him calling on Congress to act does matter. Is it going to take time? Unfortunately, it will. But does it mean that we stop fighting? Absolutely not. 

RADDATZ: Gio’s full interview with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and the entire “Pride: to be Seen” special are streaming now exclusively on Hulu. We’ll be right back.
