Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to argue Thursday that the performance of White House staff and the Biden Administration should be judged on race, gender and sexual preference.
“The Cabinet is majority people of color for the first time in history,” Jean-Pierre stated, adding “The Cabinet is majority female for the first time in history. A majority of White House senior staff identify as female.”
She continued, “Forty percent of White House senior staff identify as part of the racially diverse communities. And a record seven assistants to the president are openly LGBTQ+.”
“So again, this is something that the president prides himself on,” she concluded.

A bad Fed decision affects the lives of everyone.
I used to always argue that a position should be awarded on merit. Not on what was between a person's legs. Now the has to be an add-on on colour of a person's skin and a letter apparently. Enough already.— deirdre ritchie (@deirdreritchi10) February 24, 2023

It doesn't matter that they are not capable of the job as long as they checked the boxes. Absolutely ridiculous.— Peggy Earle (@Peggalee) February 24, 2023
