The White House took questions about the badgering and harassment of Senator Krysten Sinema in a bathroom at Arizona State University. Fox News' Peter Doocy asked the question of Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

"A group of activists followed Senator Krysten Sinema into a lady's room screaming about the Build Back Better plan yesterday," Doocy asked. "The President said today, 'I don't think they're appropriate tactics. But it happens to everybody. And it's part of the process.' He is an expert on the process. Has he ever been chased into a restroom by activists?"

"Let me be clear here," Psaki said, "because I think the context of what happened here is very important. And Senator Sinema put out a statement this morning. So as she said, and I would reiterate from here, the protection of the freedom to protest to speak out and to criticize is fundamental to our democracy. The President believes that. Maybe he shorthanded it, but he wanted to make that clear this morning.

"What happened this weekend was that her classroom, her students, and the safe and intellectually stimulating environment she has worked to create during the year she's teaching it at ASU, was breached. That's inappropriate and unacceptable. And I think the context of what happened here is important despite the fact that, of course, we stand for, the President stands for, the fundamental right of people to protest to object to criticize, as they often do outside of the gates of the White House."

"Does the White House condemn these protesters who chased her into the restroom?" Doocy asked.

"I just said it was inappropriate and unacceptable," Psaki said.
