Incoming White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre described Fox News as a “racist” network in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.
On March 15, 2020, Jean-Pierre shared a clip from an appearance on AM Joy on her Twitter account. In it, she complained about Fox News alongside host Joy Reid and guests Jennifer Rubin and Michael Steele.
Jean-Pierre later shared the clip on Twitter, and as of Monday evening it was still up.
“Fox News was racist before #coronavirus, they are racist during coronavirus, and Fox News will be racist after the coronavirus,” she wrote.
