Joe Biden has a lot of respect for the America-hating Olympic hammer thrower who turned her back on the American flag, says Jen Psaki.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday was asked about Gwen Berry, the race activist who disrespected the US on the world stage.
Biden “has great respect for the anthem” but also “part of that pride” means “respecting the right of people to peacefully protest,” Psaki said.
