Jon Decker Tries to Figure Out What Joe Biden Really Said This Time

It’s become a familiar pattern in the Biden White House; the administration says one thing with regards to policy, then the President says something completely different in public and the staff has to backtrack or explain away the confusion. In the latest example, Biden made a comment calling for a pause in activity in Gaza, just weeks after Secretary of State Antony Blinken declared that America has Israel’s back. WOR White House correspondent Jon Decker was also left scratching his head at the comment. He appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program to untangle the latest presidential word salad.

“This could be a gaffe; this could be how he feels, but whatever it was, now the White House has to back that policy,” Decker told Berman and Riedel. “That means when Secretary of State Antony Blinken travels to Israel… that’s one of the messages that he’ll deliver to Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Netanyahu has said no way…our survival as a country is at stake; we are not pausing.”

Decker also tried to sift through Karine Jean-Pierre’s comments that anti-Islamic sentiments are rising alongside, if not outpacing, anti-Semitic sentiments in the United States. “I don’t get that. Look, I’m a little bit confused by that. Now, the White House did put out a very strong statement last week condemning anti-Semitism… but the White House announcing a new center that they are calling to deal with Islamophobia across the country? I don’t know… I just don’t see that happening in that community like I see it happening in the Jewish community right now.”
