White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki has become a flashpoint for the Joe Biden administration in a number of ways.
She claimed, incorrectly, that President Trump told people to inject “poison” to cure COVID. She delivered what could be called misinformation about a woman who accused Biden of assaulting her. She wrongly tried to blame the GOP for the “defund police” movement. And she unbelievably claimed that Joe Biden is so physically fit, at 78, he’s “hard to keep up with.”
Now she has a new label: Bigot.
It’s because of her comments this week, trying to insult and cancel a question about abortion, because it came from a man.
REPORTER: “Why does the President support abortion when his own catholic faith teaches it is morally wrong?”

The Daily Mail pointedly described how she was “slammed as ‘bigoted and unprofessional” for telling a reporter “he could not ask about abortion because he is a MAN.”
It happened when Owen Jensen, a reporter for EWTN, asked about a Texas abortion restriction that the Supreme Court allowed to become law.
“I know you have never faced those choices, nor have you ever been pregnant but for women out there who have faced those choices, this is an incredibly difficult thing and the president believes that right should be respected,” she charged.
Father Frank Pavone, a Catholic priest, said, “Jen Psaki is still using the tired old excuse for #abortion that men cannot get pregnant. Since when does that take away a man’s responsibility to defend a child from violence?”
And Ed Condon, editor of Substack page The Pillar, said, “The fundamental premise of Jen Psaki’s comments is that fathers have no intrinsic stake in the life of their children. It’s also the fundamental premise of a society which views children as transferable commodities.”
Joel Pollak wrote, “Telling a male reporter he can’t ask a question about the president’s views on abortion (@JoeBiden has never been pregnant, either, to the best of my knowledge) and religion was a real low point for @PressSec Jen Psaki. It was bigoted and unprofessional. I hope she walks it back.”
Lila Rose, a pro-life campaigner, said, “I’ve been pregnant, @PressSec, and it’s *still* not my right, or anyone else’s, to kill a baby. Being a woman or being pregnant does not give you license to kill. Women deserve better than abortion. The President’s position is illogical, unscientific, immoral & 40 years wrong.”
Psaki also was described as a “soulless ghoul.”
The pro-abortion campaigners, of course, all lined up with Psaki, supporting her “bigoted” attitude.
The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling allowing Texas’ ban on abortions after six weeks to take effect, said, “In reaching this conclusion we stress that we do not purport to resolve definitively any jurisdictional or substantive claim in the applicants’ lawsuit. In particular, this order is not based on any conclusion about the constitutionality of Texas’s law, and in no way limits other procedurally proper challenges to the Texas law…”
A commentary at Twitchy explained, “Catholic Joe Biden supports abortion, but if you’ve never been pregnant, it’s none of your business anyway.”
Commentator Ben Shapiro immediately took the Biden administration’s transgender agenda and turned it back on Psaki, writing, “How does she know this male-identifying reporter has never faced those choices, or that he’s never been pregnant? Some men have been pregnant. I have been reliably informed of this by the Biden administration.”
