White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre lied during a Friday press briefing.
Jean-Pierre falsely stated that Daily Wire host Michael Knowles called for the "eradication of transgender people" during a speech at CPAC.

Jean-Pierre talked about Knowles' speech when he called for the "eradication" of radical gender ideology.
"Several left-wing media outlets which initially claimed, as Jean-Pierre did, that Knowles called for 'eradication' of people, not an ideology, later corrected their reporting," reports Daily Wire. "But Jean-Pierre, in misrepresenting Knowles' words, said the White House must 'call out the shameful, hateful, and dangerous attacks that we have been seeing on the LGBTQI community.'"
"Look, it started with a speaker at a conservative conference calling for the eradication of transgender people; language that not a single national Republican leader has condemned," Jean-Pierre said.
Knowles responded in a tweet, asking Jean-Pierre, "why are you lying about what I said?"
"During the CPAC speech, Knowles argued that gender ideology was built on false premises about the human condition and that it could not be imposed or indulged in any context without granting those premises, which he said undermines the foundations of society itself," reported Daily Wire.
"For the good of society and especially for the good of the poor people who have fallen prey to this confusion, transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely, the whole preposterous ideology — at every level," Knowles said in his CPAC speech.
"I have been called all sorts of nasty things by the liberal press, so I tend to expect everything," Knowles said in an interview with Fox's Tucker Carlson.
"But I have to admit being accused of genocide did take me by surprise," Knowles added.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
