White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced she will be leaving her position vouching for President Biden at the daily briefings and moving over to an on-air role at MSNBC. Unfortunately, her replacement is not only a spouse of a CNN host, but she is known to be anti-Israel.

Karine Jean-Pierre will be the first black woman as well as openly gay individual to serve in the role. Jean-Pierre is married to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, which, rightly so, is raising potential ethical concerns.

However, in addition to saying goodbye to the last ounce of fairness in the press this administration may have had, Jean-Pierre is a “veteran anti-Israel activist.” Jean-Pierre has “been open about her animosity towards the Jewish state” reports the Washington Free Beacon.

She once served as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for the extremely progressive group MoveOn.Org, a far-left anti-Israel group known for supporting boycotts of the Jewish state.

Washington Free Beacon writes:

Jean-Pierre’s anti-Israel past—which includes a stint as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left anti-Israel group that advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state—is raising red flags in the pro-Israel community. The selection of an Israel critic is also likely to further strain ties with the pro-Israel community and Israeli government, which already is strongly opposed to the Biden administration’s efforts to ink a new nuclear deal with Iran.

Jean-Pierre has been open about her animosity towards the Jewish state. She has accused Israel of committing “war crimes” and has backed efforts to boycott the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the United States’ most prominent pro-Israel lobbying shop, cheering Democrats in 2019 for boycotting the group’s annual gathering in Washington, D.C., for “boldly [chose] to prioritize diplomacy and human rights over the power of a lobbying organization.”

AIPAC, she claimed, helped the Trump administration “sabotage” the Iran nuclear deal and also “supported the group that’s credited with inspiring President Trump to enact the Muslim Ban and has been known to spread anti-Muslim racism.” She accused the group without evidence of trafficking in “severely racist, Islamophobic rhetoric.”

Audit Finds Half of President Biden’s Twitter Followers are Fake Bots

President Joe Biden has an impressive 22.2 million followers on Twitter; but apparently half of them are bots. According to an audit tool from software company SparkToro, “49.3 percent of account’s following the official @POTUS Twitter account are ‘fake followers” reports Newsweek.

SparkToro defines “fake” as “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter.”

Analysis was conducted based on factors such as location issues, default profile images and new users. The information is of particular importance as Elon Musk has expressed his concern at the overwhelming number of fake accounts on the giant platform. Specifically, he claimed 20 percent of Twitter accounts were “fake/spam accounts” and that the figure is “4 times what Twitter claims” or even higher.

“Musk said early on Tuesday that his $44-billion deal to purchase the social media company could not go ahead until issues with fake accounts were resolved and appeared to criticize Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal” adds Newsweek.

The accusation put the acquisition in jeopardy, with the two men exchanging a series of tweets about the fake accounts issue on Monday.

The back-and-forth comes after Musk tweeted Friday that the deal to buy Twitter was placed on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts represent less than 5% of users.

“My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,” Musk wrote. “Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

“We suspend over half a million spam accounts every day, usually before any of you even see them on Twitter. We also lock millions of accounts each week that we suspect may be spam, if they can’t pass human verification challenges (captchas, phone verification, etc),” Agrawal wrote.

SparkToro’s tool also found that of Musk’s 93.3 million followers, 70.2 percent of those accounts are fake.
