White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to directly comment on Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s remarks about Hamas using rape as a weapon of war.

Jayapal called for being “balanced” and not forgetting “outrages against Palestinians,” prompting criticism from other House Democrats.

Jean-Pierre emphasized that the administration denounces Hamas’ actions and that using rape as a weapon of war is reprehensible. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“The View” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin questioned Jean-Pierre as to whether the liberal congresswoman ought to clarify her comments.

“I’m going to let the representative speak for herself,” said Jean-Pierre.

“I just can’t speak for her. I speak for the President of the United States.”

“I am the White House press secretary obviously, so that’s who I speak for,” she said.

“When it comes to rape, that’s reprehensible.”

“When it comes to using rape as a weapon of war, that’s reprehensible, we are very clear about denouncing Hamas’ actions and that’s what the president has been clear about, and as an administration more broadly, we’re going to continue to be very clear about,” she added.

She has repeatedly stated that she speaks for the president and that Jayapal should speak for herself.

“Hamas terrorists raped Israeli women and girls. The only ‘balanced’ approach is to condemn sexual violence loudly, forcefully and without exceptions. Outrageous for anyone to ‘both sides’ sexual violence,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wrote.
