White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday took over the press briefings after Psaki exited the position on Friday.
Karine Jean-Pierre wanted the reporters in the briefing room to know how special she is because she is a black lesbian.
“I am obviously acutely aware that my presence at this podium represents a few firsts. I am a black, gay, immigrant woman—the first of all three of those to hold this position, I would not be here today if not for generations of barrier-breaking people before me. I stand on their shoulders.” the 47-year-old daughter of Haitian immigrants said.
So? Who cares.

Karine Jean-Pierre spent all day Monday talking in circles and not really answering any questions.
But she’s a lesbian so all is good in the world.
