White House Spokesditz Karine Jean-Pierre is really bad at her job. I know that’s not exactly a big reveal, but I believe it needs to be said more often.
When the 2020 Democratic primary field began assembling in 2019, the leftists in the mainstream media never failed to note that the field was young and diverse. At the end of the slog, the party of youth and diversity had two elderly white dudes to choose from, and one of them wasn’t even a Democrat. Bernie Sanders had played the interloper card again and helped vanquish those whacky diverse kids.
Hell hath no ridiculousness like a 21st century Democrat trying to expiate white guilt.
The Dems have been trying to deflect from the fact that they enthusiastically went for the whiter than white grandpa in 2020. You best be checking off some HISTORIC FIRST diversity boxes if you’re submitting a résumé to Team Biden.
Jean-Pierre’s claim to fame is that she checked off not one, but two HISTORIC FIRST boxes when it came to the press secretary gig. She is the first black person and first openly gay person to hold the job. The Democrat rules of political combat say that those two things mean that we’re not supposed to criticize her.
Too bad. Jean-Pierre is simply too awful to ignore.
President LOLEightyonemillion has a bit of a mess on his hands with Docugate, and KJP did not handle being questioned about it well at all. Ben wrote about it yesterday:
At around 54:45, following about the tenth non-answer from Jean-Pierre, one reporter very tepidly pushed back, reminding her of her boss’s pledge to transparency back in 2021: “One of the reasons we ask this is because on, like, day two of this administration, when he swore all of you in, the President said, quote, ‘I’m going to make mistakes. When I make them, I’ll acknowledge them and I’ll tell you, and I’ll need your help to help me correct them.’”
A visibly perturbed Jean-Pierre didn’t appreciate this mild pushback, and replied, “Ed — Ed — Ed, I am — we don’t need — we don’t need to have this. We work very well together… You don’t need to be contentious with me here, Ed.”
Being contentious with government propagandists is literally the intended function of a free press.
That’s a level of snippiness that Jean-Pierre usually reserves for the Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy. She is obviously not handling the shock of having one of her leftist cheerleaders from another outlet press her for some coherence.
Jean-Pierre is always ill-prepared and says so many stupid things every week that we could probably task a writer with just covering her. She’s good at finding new ways to be bad, like her penchant for mangling easy to pronounce words, which Matt wrote about last week. She’s being paid to speak on behalf of the administration, and she can’t pronounce “Nobel Prize” correctly.
It’s almost impressive that they found a spokesperson who’s nearly as incoherent as the always-incoherent buffoon at the top. If she and Biden meet one on one, they must have to bring code breakers in from the intelligence community to transcribe what was said.
Thanks to those two HISTORIC FIRSTS, Jean-Pierre has plenty of job security. She could light the briefing room on fire and anyone who suggested that she lose her job would be called a racist and a homophobe.
She’ll just keep getting angrier and angrier that people are asking her questions.
Even though it’s her job to answer questions.
