Reporter asks Karine Jean-Pierre: ‘Is President Biden woke?’

It is often said about President Joe Biden that he is not a true Kool-Aid-drinking progressive who believes in a Marxist-inspired radical left agenda, though the woke policies this president and his administration push would have you thinking otherwise.

On the issue of whether Biden is woke or not, Newsmax White House correspondent James Rosen cut to the chase at Tuesday’s press briefing and straight up asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“One of the most prominent themes that we hear from both elected Republicans and candidates has to do with what is called woke-ism,” Rosen began. “And we hear about an anti-woke agenda. And this entire subject reminds me of what Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart once said about ‘obscenity.’ And he couldn’t define it, but he knew it when he saw it.”

“And so, we hear so much talk about ‘woke capitalism,’ a ‘woke military,’ and so on,” the former Fox News reporter continued. “And by way of trying to clarify this for the American people, I wonder if we couldn’t begin with a threshold question to wit: Is President Biden woke?”

Dodging the question entirely, the president’s overmatched diversity hire instead took a potshot at Republicans while claiming Biden is focused on the American people.

“So, let me tell you what the president cares about and what’s important to this president,” Jean-Pierre replied. “The president doesn’t concern himself about what Republicans are trying to do in creating political stunts and making an issue out of the things that they feel benefits them politically, not the American people, not what matters to the American people, but what benefits them politically for their own ability to move forward.

“What the president cares about is exactly what I just talked about, and what he talked about at the legislative conference, which is, how are we going to continue to deliver for the American people?”

Interestingly, when it comes to the issue of woke, the best sign that this is proving to be troublesome for the left could be seen from Soledad O’Brien, the genius who was ousted at CNN. As seen in the Twitter exchange below, O’Brien claimed that some people use the term “as a synonym for the n-word.”

Rosen scored on another question Tuesday, managing to get Biden’s spokesperson to declare that he was the “best communicator” they have.

“Is it the view of the president’s communication team that he is equally adept in all settings in terms of communications or are there some that play to greater strengths or some where he probably isn’t as strong?” Rosen asked.

“I will tell you this: The president is the best communicator that we have in the White House.”

The RNC could not let that one go, running a clip of the exchange along with a few of Biden’s… greatest hits:
