Not that Joe Biden would actually put national security over equity due to the Democrat’s desperate attempt to make Biden look like a “President for all”, but come on man, sleeping with the enemy?
President Biden’s latest equitable pick, a black, gay, female, for his new press secretary (the trifecta of equitable picks), is already being accused of creating troubling conflicts of interest because of her long-term relationship with star CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux. But Joe Biden doesn’t care about any of this because EQUITY right?
According to the NY Post, Karine Jean-Pierre — who next Friday will be both the first black and first openly gay person to hold the key White House post — lives with the network’s national correspondent in Washington, D.C., with their 7-year-old daughter.
But let’s put equity aside for a minute and focus on the fact that there is a serious conflict of interest here. We already know how scandalous CNN is, the Cuomo brothers case-in-point. Do we really expect the incoming White House Press Secretary to not tip off partner and CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux with top secret information that under no circumstance should be leaked to the press?
The whole thing reeks of corruption, and I’m not the only one who thinks Biden should have never compromised the White House with his recent pick. Alex Marlow, editor-in-chief of right-wing news outlet Breitbart, tweeted “This is one of many examples of the corporate media LITERALLY in bed with the government it covers.”
He had already raised concerns about the couple’s relationship and its possible influence in his book, “Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption,” he noted.
Even Juwan Holmes, the associate editor of LGBTQ Nation, conceded that Karine Jean-Pierre’s relationship with Malveaux was bound to eventually spark accusations of conflict of interest.
“I’m sure there won’t be Cuomo-level conflict of interest violations but expect it to have it bought up in the future…” he said.
Is Karine Jean-Pierre the best woman for the job? Perhaps, but sprinkle a bit of equity on her resume with a dash of CNN bias, and one can’t help but wonder if she really got the job based on merit, or if the White House stacked the deck to play the equity card while helping CNN get their catastrophic ratings back on track.
