Putin’s propagandists said on state television that the 47-year-old was not picked for the position because of her qualifications.

They said Jean-Pierre, who is from Martinique, will be replaced by a white heterosexual guy within two months in a racist and homophobic outburst.

“This girl will make it for a month or two, then she’ll be replaced, to your satisfaction,” TV host Evgeny Popov stated.

Popov argued that despite having a university education, he is not equipped to serve as the US press secretary.

And when he targeted Jean-Pierre, journalist Andrei Sidorchik yelled racist obscenities.

On May 13, Jean-Pierre formally succeeded Jen Psaki, who served as Kamala Harris’ chief of staff throughout her 2020 presidential campaign.

“I am obviously acutely aware that my presence at this podium represents a few firsts,” she told reporters at the podium. I am a black, homosexual immigrant lady, and I am the first of the three to occupy this job. I would not be here today if it hadn’t been for generations of individuals who broke down barriers before me.”

On May 5, the White House announced that Jean-Pierre will succeed Psaki.

“Karine not only brings the experience, talent, and integrity required for this difficult job, but she will also continue to lead the way in communicating about the Biden-Harris Administration’s work on behalf of the American people,” said President Joe Biden. Karine is someone Jill and I have known and admired for a long time, and she will be a powerful advocate for me and this Administration.”
