White House spox laments victims of trans violence, Riley Gaines has a question

President Joe Biden’s 81st birthday and the traditional annual pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkeys weren’t the most important items on the agenda for the White House on Monday, the “Transgender Day of Remembrance.”

To mark the occasion with yet another of a growing number of calendar days devoted to the very special demographic, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre lamented the deaths of 26 people alleged to have been victims of violence against transgenders in the daily press briefing and in a clip that she shared to X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Today, on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we grieve the 26 transgender Americans who were killed this year. Year after year, we see that these victims are disproportionately Black women and women of color,” said Jean-Pierre.

But some including former NCAA swimming star Riley Gaines had an inconvenient question for the historic first black lesbian immigrant to hold the job of top government spox and her activist agenda.

“Is the Nashville shooter who murdered 6 people including 3 nine yr olds one of the 26 were remembering orrrrrr ???” Gaines asked in response to KJP’s post.

More reactions to Jean-Pierre’s recognition of the unofficial holiday.

In an official statement posted to the White House’s website, Biden touted his efforts to mobilize the federal government to protect the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans, adding yet another letter to the ever-expanding acronym for the minuscule but disproportionately influential demographic, the proverbial tail that wags the dog.

“There is no place for hate in America and no one should be discriminated against simply for being themselves. Today, on Transgender Day of Remembrance we are reminded that there is more to do to meet that promise, as we grieve the 26 transgender Americans whose lives were taken this year. While each one of these deaths is a tragedy – the true toll of those victimized is likely even higher, with the majority of those targeted being women of color,” Biden said in the statement.

“It’s unacceptable and it’s why my Administration has taken action to strengthen the rights, and protect the safety of transgender and all LGBTQI+ Americans. My Administration ended the ban on transgender Americans serving our country and I signed historic executive action to strengthen civil rights protections for all LGBTQI+ Americans,” added the befuddled geriatric Democrat, listing the agencies that have been working “hand-in-hand with LGBTQI+ community organizations” to combat the “face of hate.”

“As we mourn the loss of transgender Americans taken too soon this year, we must also recommit ourselves to never stop fighting until all Americans can live free from discrimination,” the president added without a hint of irony given the rampant discrimination against white people that has been institutionalized during his reign.
