The current press secretary has been a disaster for Joe Biden. She can’t defend herself, let alone him.

And now Karine Jean-Pierre melted down on camera after being asked one humiliating question.

During Tuesday’s briefing, Fox News contributor Peter Doocy questioned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about why nothing President Joe Biden was doing appeared to be resonating with the American people.

Doocy began by noting current polling, which shows very little favorability for Biden, and then got right into what that could mean for Biden in the months leading up to the 2024 presidential race.

“Why do you think Americans are so down on President Biden right now?” he asked.

“What do you mean?” Jean-Pierre pushed back.

“I know you don’t like to talk about polls, like, the five of six swing states that he is losing right now to somebody who is a criminal offender,” Doocy replied.

“But, more broadly, it doesn’t seem like anything you guys are doing is making him more popular. Why do you think that is?”

“So, you — uh — you mentioned a criminal defendant, your words, not mine,” Jean-Pierre said. “So I want to be super mindful about how I answer this question, because obviously, that criminal defendant is also a — in the race for 2024 elections, so going to be super mindful there.”

Jean-Pierre then gave out her prepared list of reasons why Americans might feel things weren’t improving — none of which were related to Biden’s programs. She discussed everything from “Putin’s war” and its impact on gas prices to the long-term repercussions of the COVID-19 epidemic.

“We understand that people are still feeling this. We get that and we’re not — we’re not blind to that,” she continued, claiming that Biden’s economy was working even if people weren’t feeling that.


Doocy instantly responded, claiming that the president’s policies were failing to deliver on his promises.

“I get that you understand that people are hurting right now. Why is it that nothing you’re doing to address their concerns is working?” he asked.

“What I’m saying is, we’re going to continue to do the work. I can’t speak to the polls, right? Those are for folks who are experts who can do a deep dive and look into that and speak to them,” Jean-Pierre insisted. “What I can speak to is we understand what the American people is [sic] feeling. We understand what they’re going through. That’s why we’re going to continue to do the work.”


Doocy concluded with a vague question that appeared to be addressing the ongoing conflict between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas, as well as the concurrent struggle inside the Democratic Party over Biden’s increasingly vacillating position on Israel.

“Have you considered in the White House that some of President Biden’s recent policy positions could be a turn off to the people that used to like him?” Doocy inquired.

Jean-Pierre made no mention of Israel in her response, instead highlighting a list of Biden’s “incredibly popular” policy ideas, such as trying to reduce the cost of prescription pharmaceuticals and general health care.
