Bonnie Jenkins is the United States under secretary of state for arms control and international security, and yet she cannot answer one simple question: What would a two-state solution in the Middle East look like?
Dave Rubin plays a clip of Ms. Jenkins being questioned by Florida Rep. Brian Mast (R) about the very thing she should be an expert on.
“We support a two-state solution,” she told Mast in the hearing.
“Okay, have you looked at that objectively?” Mast asked in return.
“This is something that we do support,” Jenkins responded, failing to answer the question.
“That’s not an answer,” Mast laughed, before asking again, “Have you analyzed a second Palestinian state objectively?”
“No, I have not,” she answered, failing to realize the embarrassment such an admission should cause someone with her job title.
Mast assumed she “might not” understand the question, so he asked her again, but this time, she said “yes,” suggesting that she had analyzed a two-state solution objectively but couldn’t expand on what that meant.
Their exchange continued, but Jenkins never was successful at explaining how she or anyone in her department had analyzed a two-state solution objectively.
Dave is shocked that a woman with so little knowledge is in such an important position.
“She has no idea what she’s talking about. She doesn’t know what the word objective is; that’s a bit of a problem. She has no idea why she supports a two-state solution or two states, which is a complete farce and always has been,” he says.
“But putting all that aside,” he continues, “she has no idea why she supports a certain policy other than she’s supposed to support a certain policy.”
Perhaps Ms. Jenkins is yet another example of DEI at work in the government. To see her make a fool of herself, watch the clip below.
