Newly installed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made her debut as top White House spokesperson on Monday, and was thrown completely out of sorts after receiving a simple question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.

“The president’s Twitter account posted the other day if you wanna bring down inflation, let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. How does raising taxes on corporations reduce inflation?” Doocy asked.

Simple enough, right? No. Jean-Pierre was lost.

“Um, sure, are you talking about a specific tweet?” she asked, flustered.

When Doocy read her the tweet, she responded: “Look, we have talked about, um, we have talked about this past year, about making sure that the wealthiest among us are paying their fair share, and that is important to do. That is something the president has been working on everyday when we talk about inflation and lowering costs, so it’s very important that as we’re seeing costs rise, as we’re talking about how to, you know, build an America that’s equal for everyone and doesn’t leave anyone behind, that is an important part of that as well,” Jean-Pierre said.

“But how does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gas, the cost of a used car, the cost of food for everyday Americans?” Doocy asked again.

“So I think we encourage those who have done very well, especially those who care about climate change, to support a fairer tax code that doesn’t charge manufacturers workers, cops, builders a higher percentage of their earnings, that the most fortunate people in our nation, and not let that stand in the way of reducing energy costs and fighting an existential problem if you think about it, that is an example. To support basic collective bargaining rights as well,” she replied.

“But look, by not, without, having a fairer tax code, which is what I’m talking about, then all, like, manufacture workers, cops, you know, it’s not fair for them to have to pay higher taxes than the folks who are not paying taxes at all.”

  1. Uh uh uh uh you know uh uh you know uh uh you know you know right? You know. Uh uh uh. This affermative action pick is just as inarticulate and stupid as Jen Psaki. But at least she’s a lesbian so everything is woke and cool.

  2. This lady to starts to mumble over a simple attack reporters will love it, and white house will not be able to send her do to color and gender

  3. Honestly speaking she isn’t as bad as other commentators out there, certainly not as bad as Biden.
    If anything It could work for our advantage.

  4. She’s a perfect representative and spokesperson for the president – she makes as much sense as he does when responding to most questions.

  5. This is Exhibit A of what you get when you select your staff based upon gender, skin color and sexual orientation rather than upon their competency and abilities.

    Unfortunately, a good percentage of President Biden’s Cabinet and staff fit this description and we see the results very clearly.

  6. What were u expecting when you hire based on race, gender and sexual preference vs actual qualifications for the job? This is a victory for affirmative action, ie the intentional dumbing down of this country.

  7. Simple answer to Peter Doofus: More tax revenues from the “super-wealthy” who now are able to pay very low marginal rates will mean less federal borrowing to finance government program. Lower deficit spending generally means less inflationary pressure.

    P.S. The new headline writer for the news pages seems to be fixated on finding stupid tweets, comments etc by members of the administration and pinning it to the top of the news page with a “WATCH THIS” etc. lead. Where was he/she when the prior POTUS was recommending from the WH podium to inject disinfectant and other mindless remedies for covid, posting totally incoherent tweets and 4 AM and his “Press Secretary” went for weeks w/o a daily briefing and when she did show up, simply screaming fake news, enemy of the people and lecturing the reporters about questions they should be asking.

  8. >>>Simple answer to Peter Doofus: More tax revenues from the “super-wealthy” who now are able to pay very low marginal rates will mean less federal borrowing to finance government program. Lower deficit spending generally means less inflationary pressure.

    Even assuming this were true then let Biden talk about fighting the deficit. Not the wealthy.

    Anyway by that logic the emphasis should be on cutting government programs and wasteful spending. Not taxing the wealthy.

  9. Oy! Oy! Oy! You have triggered Gadolhadorah!!!! No!!!! You blasphemous, heretic conservatives, how dare you attack Gadolhadorah’s gatchkeh???? This is a complte chillul democrat!!!! Oy vey!! Hand Gadolhadorah a box of tissues now!!!!!!!!!!!
    P.S. Gadolhadorah, go to hell.

  10. I would have titled this: ” Remember the great job that Jen Psaki did representing the President and destroying John Doocy for 15 months.”

  11. Gadolhadorah: Not all ears are deaf here — Thank you for adding an intelligent and well-informed opinion into this comment section.

  12. “Gadol” continues to lie and lie and lie and then lie some more. We just read last week מדבר שקר תרחק, but “Gadol” is nothing but שקר

  13. She’s a bumbling idiot who only got her position because of the color of her skin and what she does behind closed doors that she’s announced to the world.

    The reporter should have followed up with another question, “Considering your want to raise taxes on the wealthiest of people as you call them, can you please tell me when the last time was that you had a job for a poor person? Also Miss Emptyhead, can you tell me what the current percentage of income the country receives taxes from these “wealthiest” of people is? Can you tell me what a fair share is?”

    The answer per the IRS page is that these people are already paying well over 50% of the tax revenue received. So what’s fair share? 100%? 200%? How about just confiscate all their money? They don’t need it.

    This is the socialist Democrat party. They have no respect for people who have earned money. They think it all belongs to the government to give out. Well, poor people don’t hire people. It’s a shame that half the country is on the dole of the government in one way or another. That needs to stop!

  14. Dear YWN Please don’t say she was Utterly Befuddled. The WOKE police may come after you, and this press scaryrtary will call you a racist. Please be careful.

  15. Next to this creature, even that demented Alzheimer diseased old pervert in the WH looks good.
    That’s the exact reason she was picked
