You know it is bad when even CNN is forced to ask the challenging questions and what makes it extra special is that it was liberal proponent Don Lemon who asked.
During an interview on Monday with Lemon, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried her hardest to defend the abysmal numbers that are the current state of inflation.
Lemon asked Jean-Pierre if she thought that Joe Biden had the “stamina, mentally and physically” to run again in 2024 for the next presidential election.
“Don?! You’re asking me this question?! Oh my gosh!” she exclaimed.
“He’s the President of the United States, you know, he… I can’t even keep up with him!”
“That is not a question that we should be even asking!” she asserted.
The New York Times had reported over the weekend that Democrats were seeking a younger leader and someone much less senile than Joe Biden – could be why former First Lady Hillary Clinton, has been making a reappearance on the election circuit over recent months.
“That [NYT] article that we’re talking about is hearsay, it’s salacious,” Jean-Pierre told Lemon. “That’s not what we care about we care about ‘How are we going to deliver for the American people? How are we going to make our lives better?’ That’s what the president talks about, that’s his focus.”
The press secretary took to Twitter on Monday to reassure everyone that Joe Biden would in fact be running in the next presidential campaign in 2024.
“To be clear, as the President has said repeatedly, he plans to run in 2024.” She tweeted.
Jean-Pierre also said that Americans can weather the storm of inflation they are currently being subjected to.
“They also say last year’s stimulus package contributed to inflation, Karine,” Lemon told the press secretary, also underscoring high gas prices. “Does the Biden administration bear some responsibility for this?”
According to Jean-Pierre’s answer, the stimulus given out by the Biden administration helped Americans “take on inflation.”
“In order to take this [inflation] on, we gotta be in a good historic economic place… which is where we are right now,” she absurdly added.
Earlier in the day, the press secretary was asked about the stimulus contributing to the historic state of inflation – which she promptly denied.
Instead claiming that Biden took the process of nominating a new Federal Reserve chair “very seriously,” despite the fact he did not bother to appoint anyone until December and inflation had already reached 5 percent by that time.
Jean-Pierre also wanted to reassure Americans that the administration is “watching closely” and blamed “global challenges” as the reason for the stock market having lost all its gains since Biden’s inauguration in Jan 2021.
No wonder Jen Psaki quit – seems she wanted out before everything turned to cow dung completely.
