Democrat lawmaker Jared Moskowitz of Florida condemned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s “weak answer” to a reporter’s questioning of the White House’s concern over growing antisemitism across the country, and went on to call out Jean-Pierre for fumbling through her binder in search of answers.

Jean-Pierre claimed that she was unaware of any “credible threats” when questioned regarding the White House’s “level of concern” surrounding possible assaults against Jewish Americans.

“Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim have endured a disproportionate number of hate-fueled attacks and certainly President Biden understands that many of our Muslim, Arab-American and Palestinian-American loved ones and neighbors are worried about the hate being directed at their communities,” she insisted instead.

“What a weak answer,” Moskowitz posted on X.

“And why are you looking in the book? What’s the approved answer? The simple answer is yes, you are concerned about the rise of antisemitism. Of course, we are also worried about hatred against Muslim Americans. Must do better.”

“To be clear: the President and our team are very concerned about a rise in antisemitism, especially after the horrific Hamas terrorist attack in Israel,” she later stated, following nationwide backlash for the remarks.
