White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that President Joe Biden understands the “passion” behind pro-abortion protests.
But that’s not all.
The threat posed by rowdy demonstrators has forced police to turn the Supreme Court into a fortress and provide the justices with additional security from the U.S. Marshals Service.
Far-left activists have gone so far as to publish the home addresses of the conservative justices.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told CBS News on Thursday “The risk [to the justices] is real,” before adding that the additional security measures were “not enough.”
Around the same time, Psaki told Fox News’ Peter Doocy something quite different, as The Daily Wire reports:
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that there was no “official U.S. Government position” on where protesters chose to gather, even if that meant they were publishing the home addresses of sitting Supreme Court justices.
After congratulating Psaki’s incoming replacement Karine Jean-Pierre on being named President Joe Biden’s next press secretary, Fox News’ Peter Doocy turned to the topic of planned protests over the recently leaked early opinion draft indicating that the Supreme Court could be poised to overturn landmark abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.
DOOCY TIME: "Sorry to see you go."
Psaki: "Are you?"
Doocy: "Yes and you have always been a good sport."
Psaki: "As have you."
Doocy: "So, behalf on everybody, thank you for everything."
Psaki: "Thank you, thank you."
Doocy: "Can't wait to see you up there, Karine." pic.twitter.com/o7xlG2F8mh

“You guys spent some time yesterday talking about what you think are … extreme wings of the Republican Party. Do you think the progressive activists that are now planning protests outside of justices’ houses are extreme?” Doocy asked.
“Peaceful protest? No. Peaceful protest is not extreme,” Psaki replied.
Psaki wasn’t concerned that some of the conservative justices have young children. Nor did she acknowledge that threats of violence against the justices have increased since the draft majority opinion suggesting Roe v. Wade would be overturned was leaked.
