The Biden Administration just hit the intersectional lottery, and the mainstream media is eating it up!
Sadly, Jen Psaki won't be circling back to the White House after May 13. She is moving on from being the Democratic mouthpiece at the White House to being a Democrat mouthpiece at MSNBC.
Her replacement is the intersectional dream candidate for the job, Karine Jean-Pierre. who is currently the Deputy Press Secretary.
Jean-Pierre is a gay black woman (not trans or Muslim though… sad!), so we are supposed to follow Psaki's lead and praise her for her intersectional bona fides.
There's the memo from the White House.
You have to celebrate this appointment, not because she has done anything to prove that she'll be excellent at her job. But because she's an LGBT POC.
Let's see if the media got the message about what the story has to be about.
Here's ABC's headline:
First black and ot LGBTQ person in the role.
Really, she's just L. She's not G,B,T,Q, or +. Just L.
Here's how the paper of record, the New York Times, headlines the story:
Yahoo! puts the lede right there in the headline as well:
Here's the AP:
At least they are able to include all the important details in a brief headline.
NPR, of all outlets, forgot to put her LGBTQAAI+ credentials in their headline:
But don't worry, they do include her sexuality in the 2nd paragraph.
Yes, hooray!! She's a gay black woman who's doing this particular job for the first time ever.
History has been made! The glass ceilings are all broken now!
I'll say this for Karine. I am sure she certainly cannot be worse than either of Biden's other diversity hires…
