Even in the most stressful times, we can always count on Biden press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to provide us with some laughs. Like this week, when she was asked about the Special Counsel’s Office accusing her of violating the Hatch Act, which prohibits using your official position for political purposes. She claimed that the White House “didn’t know” that attacking Republican policies as “Mega MAGA” was political.

I don’t know which is funnier: the claim that she didn’t know that was political, or that this Administration thinks that “not knowing” you were breaking the law is an excuse. Well, I guess it is, but only for Democrats. For them, knowingly breaking the law is also an excuse.  

KJ-P provided more amusement with her transparent attempt to dodge a question about the safety hazards to young girls of forcing them to share restrooms and showers with much bigger biological males and compete with them in contact sports. Attempting to turn the tables, she replied, "What you're alluding to is basically saying that transgender kids are dangerous...it sounds like that's what you're saying."

No, I don't believe the word "kids" was ever mentioned. EWTN White House correspondent Owen Jensen replied, "I didn't say that. This is strictly a safety question." KJ-P responded with this epic barrage of defensive DC doubletalk:

"Well, you're saying that their safety is at risk. You're laying out a kind of broad example or explanation of what could be potentially happening. That is dangerous. That is a dangerous thing to say that essentially transgender kids are dangerous.” (Note: Apparently, to this White House, questions about their crazy policies are “dangerous,” but letting a bulked-up male spike a volleyball into a young girl’s face is not. She babbled on): "And so that’s something that I have to call out. That is irresponsible. I had just laid out how complicated this issue is. I had just laid out why it’s complicated, and so anything that you have, any additional questions, I refer you to the Department of Education. I’m gonna move on."

I believe we have a winner for this year’s “Nathan Thurm Award,” for the spokesperson who does the best job of incoherently dodging a legitimate question while defensively suggesting that it’s the questioner who’s really at fault. In case you don’t remember Nathan Thurm, here he is, as created and portrayed by Martin Short:
