At Monday’s White House press briefing, RealClearNews reporter Philip Wegman filled in press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on a rash of attacks on pregnancy crisis centers across the country. Did this, along with the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, motivate President Joe Biden to do anything to cool things down? After all, he is the unity president.
.@PhilipWegmann to KJP: "Over the wkend, a pregnancy crisis center in Oregon was firebombed. That's the 4th one…& then, last weekend…a would-be assassin was arrested outside the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh…Is there anything…the President is doing to cool passions[?]" pic.twitter.com/PC67qphQ2R

Jean-Pierre acknowledged that the Department of Justice was looking into the firebombings and said “we have seen an uptick of that type of arson.” As for the assassination attempt on Kavanaugh? “We have condemned” it, she answered.

Was anyone else around to hear it?

The media did their best to keep quiet about it, tucking it away at the bottom of their front pages if mentioning it at all.
If anyone condemns an assassination in the forrest – does anyone actually hear it?

I must’ve missed that. Not one person from this administration has condemned this once

Just as the White House had condemned the protests at the justice’s homes.
She needed a cue card for this

Other than in this clip, when have they done it?
— Phillip May (@pharvey2001) June 13, 2022
Lol. Nope. When asked about it, the president turned and walked away.

We don’t recall anyone from the administration saying anything about it; the only person we recall hearing from was, surprisingly, Sen. Jon Ossoff. Guess it’s no big deal since it was Kavanaugh.
After careful consideration, WaPo determined that the plot to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh was just a ‘local crime’ story https://t.co/ciqfER2tmH
