Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s only job is to lie for Joe Biden. When she gets called out on it, she loses her mind.
And a White House press briefing ERUPTS after this shocking accusation.
Don’t get it twisted: the whole song and dance around White House press conferences is just a show.
Of course, the administration is never going to answer the tough questions surrounding their actions.
Instead, they’ll field the softball queries from friendly news outlets who have no intention of digging any deeper.
On the flipside, it’s up to conservatives to attempt to nail down Biden and his ilks non-answers.
And Karine Jean-Pierre was hit with a point blank question she never expected.
Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s greatest business friend, told House investigators that Hunter Biden called then-Vice President Joe Biden on the phone more than 20 times with business associates to market “the brand.”
The Biden brand is a “abuse of soft power,” Archer said Tucker Carlson in a Twitter interview. “Obviously, the Biden brand adds a lot of power when your father is vice president.”
“Sometimes it was the call was coming in, and the speaker would go on. So it was [sic] it’s just the president,” Archer said.
“The power to have that access in that conversation — and it’s not in a scheduled conference call — and that’s a part of your family. That’s like the pinnacle of power in D.C.,” Archer added.
During the White House press briefing on Monday, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre to define the Biden brand. “Devon Archer talks about how he and Hunter Biden tried to profit off the Biden brand. What is the Biden brand?” he asked.
“I’m not going to get into it from here. I’m not going to get into it from here. We’re going to move on,” Jean-Pierre replied.
Doocy: "This testimony, since the last time…I was…here, Devon Archer talks about how he & Hunter Biden tried to profit off the Biden brand. What is the Biden brand?"

Doocy then inquired of Jean-Pierre whether Hunter Biden had stopped selling access to Joe Biden.
“We know that from a Hunter Biden associate now that he sold the appearance of access to then-Vice President Biden. Are you confident that he has stopped doing that?” Doocy inquired.
“That is a question for Hunter Biden and his representatives,” she replied.
“If somebody is selling the appearance of access to the White House, that is a question for the White House!” Doocy stated this.
“No, that is, that is your, your — I don’t know — how you’re perceiving that…I’m just not going to get into this. I’m just not,” Jean-Pierre stonewalled.
We don’t even get a witty one-liner out of her. Just bluster and deflection.
Great choice to represent your White House, Biden.
