Biden's Support for Gaza Policy Drops to 19% of Young Adults, as Karine Jean-Pierre Melts Down

White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre stumbled about yesterday, when asked about the recent Pew poll, showing that only 19% of U.S. adults under 30 years of age approve of Biden’s handling of the Gaza crisis:

“Which poll is this? Okay. So, look, you know, when it comes to polls—you know, we certainly don’t govern by polls. Right? You know, when it comes to young people, we’ve been very, very clear that we take—we take—I think we’ve shown action how seriously we take what young people are going through, right? I mean, we have policies that have certainly been guided towards young people, right? Young people care about climate change.… When you think about this issue of the Middle East, the President, you know, has taken—has taken this really seriously. If you think about—we’ve talked about this, right? We’ve talked about what it—what—not forgetting what happened on October 7th—right?—not forgetting how 1,200 people were slaughtered by a terrorist organization, Hamas… And so, that’s what we—that’s how we see moving forward here.” We’re for Israel’s war on Hamas. We don’t want any civilians harmed. “And so, we’re going to be—have that moral clarity and be very, very clear with our—our friends in Israel about that. But they should have the right to defend themselves. And, obviously, we do not want to see innocent lives taken in—you know, taken in Gaza as well.”
