Karine Jean-Pierre was just cornered with the last question she ever wanted

The White House Press Secretary is an embarrassment to Joe Biden. She can’t stop lying and fumbling through her conferences.

And Karine Jean-Pierre was just cornered with the last question she ever wanted.

During Monday’s briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy approached 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.

This isn’t the first time Karine Jean-Pierre has been cornered.

She can’t seem to answer even the simplest of questions.

After a reporter that Jean-Pierre often ignores demanded to be called on in press conference earlier last month, she ended the conference.

National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby appeared at the press conference and talked about President Joe Biden welcoming Angolan President João Lourenço at the White House.

Simon Ateba from Today News Africa interrupted Kirby after trying to ask a question, saying: “It’s so surprising you are receiving an African leader and you don’t take a question from an African journalist.”

Jean-Pierre interjected to let Kirby leave and said, “We can end this briefing if it’s not going to be respectful here.”

Ateba kept trying to talk, so Jean-Pierre opted to simply end the press briefing on the spot. She did not take any questions.
