On Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that those who do not agree with the majority of Americans are extremists.

“We see majority of Americans who disagree. And so, when you are not with what majority of Americans are, then you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,” Jean-Pierre said.

Jean-Pierre’s comments come the day after she was questioned on Democrat President Joe Biden saying that nearly all Republicans fall under a philosophy of “semi-fascism,” to which she was unable to explain how Biden differentiates between the average Republican voter and what he calls “ultra-MAGA” Republicans.

“When it comes to voters, how does the President differentiate between the ultra-MAGA folks who he sees as an extremist threat to democracy and the average GOP voter?” a reporter asked.

“So… um… Can’t talk about voters from here as you know. I just need to say that, right? Just to be clear,” Jean-Pierre said. “I mean, the President has been — has been really clear about the leadership — right? — the MAGA Republicans in leadership.  They’re the ones who have the platform.  They’re the ones who — again, the extremist part of the Republican Party; they’re the ones who, you know, folks listen to in their own party.”

“And by inciting violence, by trying to take away — they’re the ones who are the legislators and trying to take away our rights, trying to take away our freedoms.  And that’s who the President is speaking to.  Right?  He’s being very targeted in that way and calling that out and saying, you know, ‘We can’t allow our democracy to be attacked in this way,’” she added. “And they have a responsibility — right? — they have a responsibility in how they’re doing their business on behalf of their constituents.”
