White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is rapidly becoming known for her utterly ineffectual performance, though she is especially incompetent in all matters mathematical and economic.
To be expected from someone in her position purely due to her race, gender, and self-proclaimed sexuality.
Barring these “traits,” she clearly would not pass muster in any other meaningful manner.
Which is precisely why her most recent commentary regarding the debt ceiling was nothing short of an unmitigated disaster.
As detailed by Fox News, Jean-Pierre delivered especially unbelievable commentary in response to whether or not a meeting between President Biden and House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy will “move the ball” on the debt ceiling discussion.
Considering that Biden reportedly blew off McCarthy for close to 100 days, it is unlikely that any “ball” will be moved and Biden will just abuse his power as usual.
Or, more accurately, Biden will abuse his power upon direction from his elitist puppet masters.
“I want to step back for a second, and I really appreciate the question, but let’s look at this for the American people who are trying to figure out, who may not know what is it that we’re talking about. So, look, let’s look at it through the American families’ eyes for a second. If you buy a car, you are expected to pay the monthly payments,” Jean-Pierre trilled.
Eh, what? Exactly how does that response address anything about anything with regards to the debt ceiling?
Moreover, how is an American making “monthly payments,” like a responsible citizen, even comparable to the utterly disastrous spending habits of the Dems?
“If you buy a home, you are to pay the mortgage every month. That is the expectation. That is the spending that you put forth or spending that you may have done before. And now you’re playing every month. If you do not pay your car payment, if you do not pay your mortgage payment, then your credit is going to be bad. It’s going to hurt your credit,” Jean-Pierre continued ignorantly.
With respect, Madame Press Secretary, a meandering response about personal credit, which is rather rich coming from an administration that lives off voters who don’t pay their debts, does absolutely nothing for reassuring the American public about the current debt crisis in the United States.
On the contrary, it reassures the public of her complete and total incompetence.
Furthermore, her claims are all the more hysterical given the fact that the White House wants to wipe out student debt for the utterly irresponsible and displace the same debt on the same people who fuel Jean-Pierre’s ill-intentioned pedantry: the taxpayers.
Needless to say, she added fresh fuel to conservatives’ fire … and frustration.
“A lot of people making the point about the admin taking the opposite position on student loans, but the bigger issue here is that if you spend outside your means, it is perfectly reasonable/necessary to also adjust your future spending plan while trying to pay off past debt,” conservative commentator AGHamilton declared on Twitter.
In Biden’s case, he’ll just print more money for his cronies.
“Sorry, Chevy, even though I can afford the monthly payments, I’m obviously not going to make them unless Visa issues me a new card to afford new TVs I had already planned to buy,” Tom Elliot, the founder of Grabien Media, quipped.
Seriously. Dem spending in a nutshell.
Even more astonishingly, Jean-Pierre somehow pivots, in clearly prewritten remarks at this point, to blaming Trump for the current economic crisis.
“So, let’s look at Congress for a second. This is spending that they’ve already done. They’ve already spent. Let’s not forget the $2 trillion Trump tax cut that they were willing and happy to vote for. So, we’re telling them or saying to them, do your job, pay for something that you’ve already spent on. That’s it. This is spending that has already occurred,” Jean-Pierre insisted.
The press secretary declined to mention how reinvestment in the economy fueled a real job market and real economic growth, while also declining to mention the deadweight losses associated with the mega spending habits of utterly irascible politicians.
Her efforts to blame Trump sat very poorly with a number of individuals, including Montana Representative Matt Rosendale.
“It’s time for Biden and the Senate to act on the House GOP plan to responsibly address the debt ceiling, instead of making more false claims. Our fiscal crisis is a result of DC’s spending… NOT tax cuts that grew the economy to increase tax revenue,” Rosendale remarked coolly.
The most frightening thing of all is the fact that lamestream media failed, as usual, to call out Jean-Pierre for her wanton propagandism, enabling the leftist mascot to continue her destructive verbal carnage.
