A reporter asked Jean-Pierre about remarks from Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, who said, “The idea that we have biological boys playing in girls’ sports, it is the women’s issue of our time.”
The reporter asked Jean-Pierre, “Does the president agree that this is a women’s rights issue?”
Jean-Pierre claimed that the administration has “talked about this many times” and that “it’s a complicated issue, and there are a wide range of views on this.”
She said that it was “incredibly important” to Biden that transgender individuals not be discriminated against when it comes to protecting women’s sports.
“The president has granddaughters,” the reporter fired back. “Does he care that girls are allowed to compete in sports without the fear of injury? Does he think it’s fair for girls to have to compete against biological males?”
Jean-Pierre responded, “I just answered the question. It is a complicated issue. It is truly a complicated issue with a wide range of views — a wide range of views. There is no yes or no answer to this; it is complicated. There’s a rule that the Department of Education has put forward. And we’re going to let that — that process move forward.”
“And it is — again, we want to make sure that while we establish guardrails with this rule, that we also prevent discrimination, as well, against transgender kids,” she concluded. “But, again, a complicated issue with a wide range of views, and we respect that.”
That’s called a non-answer, and it says everything about the administration’s willingness to throw women under the bus in favor of the bullying trans movement.
