TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Karine Jean-Pierre is our first out LGBTQ+ White House Press Secretary and that's all you need to know. It's a good thing, shut up and celebrate. That's why she got the job. She's in the right group and so the Biden administration, which thinks exclusively in terms of groups and never in terms of individuals because individuals are messy and inconvenient. The group is all that matters. 

This is exactly how they pick Supreme Court justices or vice presidents or members of the Federal Reserve Board. And now, the all-important press secretary gig has gone to someone on the basis of group. It's really simple, show us your picture and we'll tell you if you're qualified for the job. And in many ways, Karine Jean-Pierre is perfect for the job. 

Not only is she a member of the out LGBTQ+ community, she's also, critically, the product of a private school and an Ivy League college and yet still oppressed somehow. She is furious at America despite her ample privilege and enraged by its racist systems of oppression. And she's happy to tell you about it.
