The White House just enraged Democrats with one surprising backstab

Advisor John Kirby

Joe Biden doesn’t have many people in his corner. He can’t afford to be pushing anyone away.

But the White House decided to enrage Democrats with one surprising backstab.

Everyone has seen the polls. Biden is losing to Trump and is even losing traction with his own party.

Part of the precipitous downfall is the fact that he refuses to stand firm on almost any subject.

He’s too busy apologizing for calling an illegal immigrant murderer an “illegal” or declaring Easter as “Transgender Day of Visibility” instead.

The result? Both Republicans and Democrats don’t trust him to make the right decision or stick to his guns.

It’s only ever pandering for political points and photo ops.

And now, many on the Left are feeling betrayed because his own administration is defending a key ally.

During an interview on Sunday, White House National Security Communications Advisor John Kirby stated that the US government has seen no evidence that Israel violated international law in carrying out its war against Hamas inside Gaza.

Kirby made the remarks on CBS News’ “Face The Nation” with Margaret Brennan, six months after Hamas carried out an unparalleled terrorist attack on October 7.

“We have a normal process the State Department runs and governs, where they take a look at incidents, particularly those that are being- operations being conducted by partner countries,” Kirby said. “And they look at them and they assess them against international law. And they’re doing that in real-time, Margaret. So, some of them may have looked at and concluded, some they’re still looking at it.”

“Thus far, as I said the other day, we’ve not seen any indication they have violated international humanitarian law,” Kirby continued. “But we take this seriously. They take it seriously at the State Department. And we’ll keep looking at this.”


The piece follows the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announcement on Friday that it accepted “full responsibility” for an airstrike that killed seven World Central Kitchen (WCK) relief workers in Gaza.

The strike occurred on Monday during an operation to transfer humanitarian aid from the WCK to the Gaza Strip, according to an IDF statement issued after an independent investigation into the incident by the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s Fact-Finding and Assessment Mechanism (FFAM).

While the cars in which the WCK workers were going were correctly marked, the IDF inquiry discovered that the markings were not visible to the cameras monitoring them because the mission occurred at night.

IDF Spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari stated that “significant measures” were promptly implemented to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.

“This is a tragedy. It was a terrible chain of errors, and it should never have happened,” Hagari said. “The IDF takes full responsibility for this regrettable loss of life.”

But for many on the Left with sympathy towards Hamas, it doesn’t matter if Israel never killed a civilian.

Why? Because they don’t think they have the right to exist to begin with. And with Biden’s advisor coming to defense of Israel, it will likely only hurt Biden’s chances at courting his own voters.
