White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre found herself in the hot seat during a recent press conference as reporters grilled her about President Joe Biden’s potential involvement in his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings. Here’s the full story.
The scrutiny comes in the wake of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s announcement of a formal impeachment inquiry into the president, with Jean-Pierre consistently saying that House Republicans lack any substantial evidence linking President Biden to his son’s affairs.
The heated exchange unfolded when New York Post correspondent Steven Nelson posed a pointed question, “Can you explain why the president interacted with so many of his son’s foreign business associates!?
More than half of voters told CNN they believe the president was involved and he lied! You can’t have a response to that, Karine?”
In response, Jean-Pierre opted not to answer and promptly left the podium. This move incited outrage among observers who were hoping for transparency regarding the ongoing controversy.
Pressed With Questions
During the same press conference on Tuesday, September 12, Jean-Pierre appeared increasingly frustrated as reporter Steven Nelson continued to press her with questions.
Evidence Does Not Exist
“Even House Republicans have said the evidence does not exist. House Republicans have said that to my friend in the back who just yelled at me, which is incredibly inappropriate,” she said.
“But House Republicans have said that there doesn’t – there doesn’t – it doesn’t exist. Their own investigations have actually debunked their ridiculous attacks,” she added.
“And the only reason Speaker McCarthy is doing this – is doing this political stunt and we have seen it, you all have reported, is because Marjorie Taylor Greene has said – she threatened to shut down the government,” she added.
“Administration Is Completely Dysfunctional and Corrupt”
Social media users wasted no time expressing their dissatisfaction. One user wrote, “This Administration is completely dysfunctional and corrupt, yet the mainstream media and Democrat Party blithely act or pretend it is a perfectly normal situation. And sadly, perhaps it is the ‘new normal.'”
The Media Is Acting
Another user added, “Not a single reporter asked this during the briefing when talking about the impeachment inquiry except Steven Nelson from the NY Post, who had to wait until the end when Karine was walking out.”
Learning From Old Joe
A third user commented, “Karine is learning from old Joe. She’s watched him run from the media many times.”
She’s a Liar
A fourth user wrote, “Not one of those cowards pressed her on the quote lack of evidence. She is a liar, she knows she’s a liar. She’s gonna have to live with that soul that she is corrupting right now.”
