Here we go: Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki snaps at another Fox News reporter who asks about ‘issues’ with trans girls competing in sports and gets told ‘trans rights are human rights’

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday shut down a Fox News radio reporter who asked about trans girls in high school sports – a day after appearing to mock another of the network’s staffers.

Asked by White House correspondent Rachel Sutherland about Joe Biden’s anti-discrimination executive order Psaki replied: ‘I’m not sure what your question is…trans rights are human rights.’

The president signed the order, titled Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation, just hours after assuming office.

It states: ‘Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.’

Sutherland had asked during Tuesday’s briefing: ‘On President Biden’s transgender rights executive action, specifically when it applies to high school sports, what message would the White House have to trans girls and cis girls who may end up competing against each other?

‘It’s sparking some lawsuits and concern among parents, so does this administration have guidance for schools in dealing with the issue arising over trans girls competing against and with cis girls?’

Psaki replied: ‘I’m not sure what your question is.’

As Sutherland attempted to reply, adding ‘the president’s executive order has.’ Psaki replied with: ‘I’m familiar with the order, but what was your question about it?’

The Fox News radio host then said: ‘The question is, does the president have a message for local school officials in dealing with these kinds of disputes that are already starting to arise between trans girls who are competing against cis girls, and a level playing field, particularly in high school sports when it leads to college scholarships.

‘Is there any kind of messaging or clarification that the White House wants to give on the executive order?’

Psaki replied: ‘I would just say that the president’s belief is that trans rights are human rights, and that’s why he signed that executive order. In terms of the determinations by universities and colleges I would certainly defer to them.’
