Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki did not have a stellar record. She often struggled to answer basic questions and was far more partisan than someone in that role should be.
Perhaps some people hoped that her replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre would be better.
But from what we’ve seen so far, we are not optimistic.
She could answer why Biden wasn’t close to his own team. Then she gets a question on the economy.
President Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said “the stock market is not something that we keep an eye on every day,” during the White House press briefing on 5/18/2022.
Wow, really? The stock market? Then she couldn’t even answer this one.
President Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had no answer on where Americans are supposed to get extra cash to pay for gas, during the White House press briefing on 5/18/2022.
Well, most of the media might be throwing Jean-Pierre softballs. But at least Peter Doocy refuses to hold back.
The new White House press secretary could not answer even his basic questions. She admitted that Biden is never in “close contact” with people who get the virus.
Really? Even his own vice president? Does this man meet with anyone throughout the week besides his dogs?
When pressed about the economy and stock market, she said the White House wasn’t watching the market every day.
Really? Biden is trying to claim he’s doing a good job on the economy. But neither he nor his team is watching the stock market? What the heck are they doing every day?
Then, he asked about the rising gas prices. Of course, Jean-Pierre, who is running interference for an anti-energy administration, had no answers.
We admit that Jean-Pierre has perhaps one of the worst jobs in the country. But nobody forced her to take it. Perhaps she thought she’d stick around long enough to make a name for herself.
Then cut and run like Psaki. But this job is supposed to communicate the White House’s work to the American people.
And she seems unwilling or unable to do it properly.
- New White House press secretary struggled to answer basic questions from Peter Doocy.
- Jean-Pierre did not have answers on the stock market, gas prices, and Biden.
- She is taking over for Jen Psaki, who was often criticized for her performance.
