White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki could be heard audibly sighing on Monday after Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy complained that President Joe Biden called Kyle Rittenhouse a “white supremacist.”
Doocy brought up the topic at the daily White House briefing.
“Why did President Biden suggest that Kyle Rittenhouse, on trial in Kenosha, is a white supremacist?” the Fox News correspondent wondered.
An audible sigh could be heard coming from Psaki’s microphone. But she declined to address the Rittenhouse trial directly.
“What I can reiterate for you is the president’s view that we shouldn’t have — broadly speaking — vigilantes patrolling our communities with assault weapons,” she explained. “We shouldn’t have opportunists corrupting peaceful protests by rioting and burning down the communities they claim to represent.”
