With White House Jen Psaki's time as press secretary ending Friday, conservatives on social media are finding past hypocritical comments by President Joe Biden's new chief spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.
Jean-Pierre's election denials of noted Republicans were outed on social media, including the Stacey Abrams claim her gubernatorial election was stolen by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018. Jean-Pierre also attacked then-candidate Donald Trump for having "stolen" the 2016 presidential election.
"Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams," Jean-Pierre tweeted April 2, 2020.
Twitter has not censored or even annotated that tweet as disinformation, as it has to posts by myriad conservatives about 2020 presidential election fraud claims.
Jean-Pierre's election denials started before Trump even took office.
"Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election … welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump," Jean-Pierre tweeted Dec. 17, 2016.
Former Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., who lost one of the Jan. 5, 2021, Senate runoff seats, blasted Jean-Pierre's disinformation campaign and the lack of accountability for it.
"Biden's incoming Press Secretary falsely claimed the 2018 Georgia governor's election was stolen from Stacey Abrams," Loeffler tweeted. "Will the media label this as an attack on our Democracy?"
Newsmax's Diamond and Silk called out Jean-Pierre's spreading of disinformation.
"Please stop telling a damn lie," their official Twitter account tweeted Monday afternoon. "Stacey Abrams lost!"
