Watch: KJP Calls Peter Doocy ‘Disingenuous’ After He Turns Tables on Her with Trump’s ‘Bloodbath’ Comments

The White House and the Democrats have continued the disingenuous lie that former President Donald Trump said there would be a “bloodbath” if he weren’t elected president for a second term.

The president’s comments clearly referred to what would happen to the auto industry if major players in U.S. car manufacturing were allowed to build plants in Mexico or other countries, then ship the parts to America. Trump is proposing a heavy tariff on importing those parts and cars and warned the audience in Ohio that a “bloodbath” would follow for American workers if the status quo of moving production away from America was allowed to continue.

Nevertheless, the disingenuous misinterpretation of the remark has continued apace by President Joe Biden and his acolytes, so Fox News’ Peter Doocy turned the tables on White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre during Tuesday’s media briefing: If they’re so concerned about Trump using the word, why haven’t they been concerned about Biden using the word himself during the 2020 campaign?

KJP’s response? Doocy was being “disingenuous.” I believe Mr. Freud would have mumbled something about projection, were he still alive.

Just so we’re clear, here’s the initial remark in context, which is plain as day:


‘NCAA’s First Openly Gay College Wrestler’ Sentenced for Heinous Crimes Involving Images of Children – Parents Pay Attention

This was also made over two weeks ago, so the White House still apparently believes that if it repeats this falsehood enough times, people will have to buy it.

However, as Doocy pointed out, Biden used similar language himself when it became clear that he had the upper hand in a two-person fight for the 2020 Democratic nomination and Bernie Sanders’ supporters were threatening to make things ugly.

Is Trump treated unfairly by the media?

“What we can’t let happen is let this primary become a negative bloodbath,” he told a crowd at a fundraiser in Maryland shortly after the 2020 Super Tuesday results went decisively in his favor.

“I know I’m going to get a lot of suggestions on how to respond to what I suspect will be an increasingly negative campaign that the Bernie brothers will run. But we can’t tear this party apart and re-elect Trump.”

“We can’t tear this party apart and re-elect Trump. We have to keep our eyes on the ball, in my view,” he added.

What’s ironic in retrospect is that the media tended to focus on the “Bernie brothers” gaffe — misnomering the so-called “Bernie bros,” an overly zealous, occasionally aggressive group of young, male Sanders supporters that had rankled numerous challengers in the 2020 race with their antics.

However, it’s fair enough to ask — as Doocy did — why Trump’s speech was “violent rhetoric” and Biden’s remark was just metaphorical. Right?

No, of course not: “Your question is disingenuous,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I’m going to be really mindful here, I’ve got to be really careful,” she said. “We have to denounce violent rhetoric which — wherever it comes from, a former leader. We have to denounce that because we saw what happened on Jan. 6. We saw what happened there, when you have a mob of 2,000 people go to the Capitol because they didn’t believe in the free and fair election that happened just months prior because of violent rhetoric.

“You’ve got to denounce that. That’s not what leaders should be doing,” she said.

Has anyone else ever seen the “Family Guy” episode where Lois gets elected mayor simply by answering every question posed to her with “9/11” or “9/11 was bad?” Don’t know what reminded me of that. Total non-sequitur. Forgive my digression.

The idea that Trump’s use of the word “bloodbath” is somehow coded language because of the Capitol incursion — an incident after he explicitly told the audience to protest peacefully during his speech at the rally — is patently ludicrous.

The White House knows that, we know it, the White House knows we know it, and we know the White House knows we know it, to paraphrase a better mind than I. But it’s still patently ludicrous.

There’s nothing disingenuous about a 1:1 comparison about the language that Donald Trump and Joe Biden used metaphorically on the campaign trail — unless, of course, Jean-Pierre wants to admit that her own boss has taken leave of his senses the same way they’re implying Trump has taken leave of his.

If that’s case, we’re all ears. I don’t think, however, we’ll be getting that admission from our senescent commander in chief’s handlers.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
