White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is proving to be just as guileless as Jen Psaki in terms of her willingness to consistently deceive, or attempt to deceive, Americans over the true origins of the current economic crisis, chiefly by blaming everything on the conflict in Europe.
Rather than admitting culpability, or exhibiting any accountability whatsoever, Jean-Pierre continues to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin for escalating costs across America, in spite of costs rising more than a year before the invasion of Ukraine began.
During an appearance on the routinely anti-American “The View,” Jean-Pierre prattled on about Putin, demonstrating a breathtaking absence of originality and intellect.
“What [we are] seeing with gas prices, what we’re seeing with inflation, even with the cost of food going up, it is a global challenge and a lot of that is connected to Russia’s war,” Jean-Pierre proclaimed.
“We have to remember how we got here, what is the cause, you know, Putin’s war, we call it Putin’s tax hike has caused gas prices to go up $2 per gallon,” Jean-Pierre continued, packing her ineffectual of defense of Biden with filler words and casual language.
Jean-Pierre also prattled on about Biden’s apparent launch of a gas tax holiday, which will save upwards of 18 cents per gallon.
The press secretary did not address Pelosi’s widely reported dismissal of the gas tax holiday, as the House Speaker apparently believes that a savings of 18 cents per gallon will not achieve much in the grand scheme of things for American taxpayers.
In addition, Senator Elizabeth Warren also blasted Biden’s approach, declaring that Biden’s suggested holiday is “not the approach [she] would use,” noting that she prefers “a more systemic approach.”
Jean-Pierre expressed the exact opposite sentiments, declaring, “anything helps … 18 cents per gallon is going to make a difference for many.”
Jean-Pierre also jabbered on about Biden’s supposed efforts for Americans, proclaiming that he “has been working for the past several months on doing everything that he can to give relief.”
The press secretary also claimed that the economy was transitioning to “stable, steady growth,” despite multiple CEOs and high-profile bankers remarking that a recession was effectively inevitable, if not imminent.
