White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates found himself in hot water Wednesday after sharing a video from an account mocking President Joe Biden.
Bates shared a video of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that had been posted by Greg Price, the senior digital strategist at XStrategies LLC and a former Daily Caller social media coordinator.
Before Bates shared the clip, Price had temporarily changed his account name to “Joe Biden Showered With His Daughter,” causing the moniker to show up under Bates’ post.
Bates also retweeted Price’s original tweet containing the video, apparently without noticing Price’s account name.
In the video from Thursday’s press briefing, Jean-Pierre lamented the alleged “bad faith attacks” against Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg over his handling of the train derailment and toxic chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio.
“There’s been a lot of bad faith attacks on Secretary Buttigieg. If you remember Elaine Chao. She was the head of the Department of Transportation and when there were these types of chemical spills, nobody was calling for her to be fired,” Jean-Pierre said.
