With all of the extreme rhetoric surrounding MAGA Republicans coming from the White House, calling them fascist because they believe the 2020 election was stolen, Peter Doocy reminded the White House spokeswoman of when she claimed the 2016 election was stolen.
Doocy: "You tweeted in 2016 that Trump stole an election."
Jean-Pierre: "I knew this was coming."
Doocy: "If denying election results is extreme now, why wasn't it then?"
Jean-Pierre: "That comparison that you made is just ridiculous."

Amazing. Peter Doocy puts her in a corner and the only way out for Karine is to claim the comparison is ‘ridiculous’.
But it’s not ridiculous. It’s literally the same thing, no matter what your reason is for claiming it.
Stacey Abrams is guilty of the exact same thing, yet no one ever gave her a hard time for claiming the 2018 election was stolen from her.
The double standard is more than clear, but I think Peter Doocy got the better of Karine once again.
