The White House will condemn anyone who fuels antisemitism, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Friday when asked about Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving’s handling of the backlash over a controversial tweet.

“Anyone, anyone that is fueling hate, fueling antisemitism, we will condemn. We will condemn that type of vulgar, that type of language, because it is incredibly dangerous,” Jean-Pierre said. The press secretary did not comment on Irving directly.

She added she has not spoken to President Biden specifically about the NBA player.

The Brooklyn Nets suspended him for at least five games on Thursday because they were disappointed by the basketball player’s failure to not say he has any antisemitic beliefs.

TVNL Comment:  Yeah, a five day suspension for Irving and a  meaningless press conference comment will do it.  No it won't.  All it does is bring publicity to Kyrie and let the Wh off the hook.  People like this only understand bigotry that is directed at them.  Sad, and dangerous.
