Press Secretary


(RepublicanWire.org) – White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wanted nothing to do with a question about whether President Joe Biden lied about his involvement with son Hunter Biden’s dubious business dealings.

The first press briefing of the year got off to a familiar start when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy grilled KJP about the border and then followed that up with a question about Republican oversight in the new Congress.

“With the new Republican majority coming in the House Oversight Committee is laying out their new investigations, and they claim to have evidence that Joe Biden lied to the American people about his involvement in his family’s business schemes,” Doocy said, before asking, “Did he?”

“So, look, I have said this before and I’ll say it again: House Republicans promised that fighting inflation during the midterms was going to be their number one priority,” Jean-Pierre replied. “That’s what they said was important to them, and that’s what they said that they wanted to do. But instead, what they’re doing is wanting to do an investigation on the president and his family.”

“That is their focus. They don’t want to focus on the American people and their family; they want to focus on political division. They want to focus on something that the American people do not want to see, as we saw from the midterm elections,” she continued. “Look, I’m not going to get into — you know, get into the specifics of any of the oversight here. We have a White House Counsel that’s going to — my colleagues who are going to deal with this. So I would point you to them.”

In effect, she dodged the question about whether Biden lied altogether. At the same time, evidence continues to grow suggesting that the president not only knew about Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine and China, among other places but was actively involved — a critical issue, if true, given that he is now the commander in chief of the most powerful nation on earth.

Jean-Pierre wrapped up her response with the gift Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel, R-Ky., gave Democrats, a joint appearance with Biden to tout the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill passed last year.

“One more thing — I’ll point you to tomorrow,” she said, in reference to doing things that are important to Americans. “‘Tomorrow we’re going to see a trip, an event that’s going to be done in a bipartisan way.”

Suffice it to say, Jean-Pierre’s dodge didn’t go over well on social media. Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:

(RepublicanWire.org) – White House Press Secretary Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre loses it on a reporter and walks out of White House press briefing.

KJP abruptly ended Thursday’s White House press briefing after an interruptive exchange with Today News Africa chief White House correspondent Simon Ateba.

Ateba was asking about next week’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, where African leaders will descend on Washington, and the back-and-forth devolved quickly.

Here’s how the chaos — during which Jean-Pierre called on a different reporter, only to have Ateba interrupt — all went down:

ATEBA: Can you take a question on the U.S.-Africa Summit?

REPORTER: Thank you, Karine —

JEAN-PIERRE: Go ahead.

ATEBA: Can you take a question on the U.S.-Africa Summit?

JEAN-PIERRE: I — go ahead. Go ahead.

ATEBA: Karine, why is it so hard to take a question on the U.S.-Africa Summit, when the president is meeting 50 African leaders — the biggest gathering of leaders of his administration? Why is it hard for you to give me a question?

While Ateba was asking “why is it so hard,” Jean-Pierre looked stoic and frustrated.

JEAN-PIERRE: It is not hard. I’ve answered — I —

ATEBA: No, it is hard, because it’s been months. You don’t —

JEAN-PIERRE: Would you let me answer the question? Or are you going to —

ATEBA: I don’t want to yell, but you don’t give us question.

JEAN-PIERRE: Okay. I’m trying to answer your question.

However, Ateba didn’t ask a question, rather asked if he could ask a queston. Jean-Pierre tried calling on the other reporter as Ateba tried to ask a question in which Jean-Pierre accused Ateba of not letting her answer him.

After a couple more moments of a tense back-and-forth, Jean-Pierre ended the briefing.

“Okay, thanks, everybody,” she said. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Jean-Pierre then walked away from the podium.

This is not the first time Ateba has clashed with Jean-Pierre. She blasted him when he tried to ask outgoing White House Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci last month a question during his final briefing.

Ateba previously accused Jean-Pierre of blacklisting him.

(RepublicanWire.org) – ABC’s Jonathan Karl on Sunday confronted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the $740 billion Bidenflation scam bill.

“But let me ask you, it’s called the Inflation Reduction Act, but the Congressional Budget Office which is nonpartisan said that there would be a negligible impact on inflation this year and barely impact inflation at all next year, isn’t it almost Orwellian?” Jon Karl queried.

“I appreciate the question. We’ve actually addressed this with the CBO,” Jean-Pierre continued. “It was the top line number; there’s more in there that shows it will have the money from– remember how we’re doing this, too, it’s making sure that billionaires in corporate America are paying their fair share, making sure that the tax code is a little bit more fair, and so when you do that, put it in its totality, you will see that it will bring down, lower the deficit, which will help fight inflation.”

The $740 billion Bidenflation scam just passed through both chambers of Congress.

Not one Republican voted for the bill.

More than 230 economists wrote letters to Congress warning that the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will make inflation worse.

The bill will allocate $369 million for ‘green energy’ – it’s actually just one big Marxist slush fund.

The bill will add 87,000 new IRS employees to harass and abuse working Americans and their political opponents.

The CBO and Penn Wharton Budge Model confirmed that the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will not reduce inflation.

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was confronted with the undeniable evidence the White House lied about the president’s awareness of Hunter’s foreign business deals.

“Why is there a voicemail of the president talking to his son about his overseas business dealings if the president has said, ‘he’s never spoken to his son about his overseas business’?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“Well, first I’ll say that, what the president said stands,” Jean-Pierre replied. “So… if that’s what the president said, that, that is what stands.”

“He’s leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Doocy pushed back. “And he says, ‘I think you’re clear.’ How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?”

“I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop,” KJP says emphatically.

In June, a voicemail that Joe Biden left for Hunter Biden was found on the laptop that shows he knew about about his son’s shady business with China and lied about it.

It’s not just the evidence of Chinese foreign influence operations penetrating the Biden White House that is damning. It’s the blatant cover-up.
