Karine Jean-Pierre humiliated Joe Biden with one braindead answer to this question

Press Secretary Jean-Pierre has made the White House a laughing stock with her performance. Now this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Because Karine Jean-Pierre humiliated Joe Biden with one braindead answer to this question.

During Monday’s briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy cornered Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre, asking if she honestly believed the American people could feel the economy improving.

Doocy prodded Jean-Pierre on the subject, starting with a joking question about if families had mentioned how much less expensive goods had gotten while sitting around their Thanksgiving meals.


Doocy responded to Jean-Pierre’s statements that the costs of a number of major commodities have dropped by asking, “So, is it your sense that when people are home for Thanksgiving, catching up with their family members, they were saying to each other, ‘Can you believe how much more affordable things have gotten?'”

“So, honestly, I wouldn’t … I hear the question, but I want to make sure this is very clear. We take that very seriously. We take what families — the decisions that they make at their kitchen table, whether it’s at whether it’s during Thanksgiving or whether it is every month, as they’re trying to make hard decisions about how they move forward with taking care of their family — we take that very seriously,” Jean-Pierre replied.

“It’s not a joke to us, it is important to us.”

She went on to restate the Biden administration’s oft-repeated theme, adding that “the fact is the data shows that the economy is improving,” despite how American families may feel. According to the data, households are still in good financial shape.”

“But why do you think it is that when you say the economy is improving and President Biden says the economy is improving, that a majority of Americans outside of this building are not buying it?” Doocy pressed once more.

Jean-Pierre responded by blaming the COVID-19 outbreak and former President Donald Trump for any ongoing economic troubles, before shifting to claim that Biden’s American Rescue Plan enabled small businesses and schools to reopen.

“It’s going to take some time, but it does not take away how we have seen the economy getting back on its feet. We actually had to fix the problem that we saw, that the last administration left us,” she said.

Of course, that’s just not true at all.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Biden has overseen nearly an 18% increase in prices since taking office.

His term isn’t even up, he still has another year to screw things up worse.

Meanwhile, Trump oversaw only a 4.1% total increase in prices over the entirety of his term.

To put this in perspective, Jimmy Carter saw 18.1% increases in prices throughout his term.

At Biden’s current rate, he will bypass the “Carter years” of inflation and stake his record as one of the worst we’ve seen in decades.
