When Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked about Biden’s baffling claim of speaking with the long-deceased François Mitterrand, Jean-Pierre’s discomfort was palpable. In fact, her response was nothing short of evasive
This wasn’t just a minor slip. It was a glaring error that directly challenges the narrative of Biden’s mental fitness for office.
The White House’s attempt to brush off this incident by editing the official transcript to replace Mitterrand with Macron is a clear attempt to rewrite history and avoid confronting the reality of Biden’s frequent gaffes.
Jean-Pierre’s refusal to engage with Doocy’s question, labeling it a “rabbit hole,” speaks volumes about the administration’s strategy of denial and deflection.
Her dismissal of the widespread concern shared by a significant portion of the electorate regarding the President’s ability to lead effectively is irresponsible.
And her attempt to redirect focus to Biden’s appearances in various states does nothing to address the core issue at hand – the President’s cognitive well-being.
This incident also shone a light on the lack of accountability regarding the border crisis. Doocy’s follow-up question about the responsibility for the border situation during the Democrats’ control of Congress was met with more blame-shifting and evasion. Jean-Pierre’s insistence on pinning the blame on House Republicans, despite Democratic control during the first two years of Biden’s term, underscores a troubling pattern of avoiding responsibility.
Jean-Pierre’s handling of the press briefing is a clear example of the administration’s struggle to maintain credibility in the face of valid criticism and questioning.
Her responses, or lack thereof, not only fail to reassure the public about Biden’s fitness for office but also highlight a broader issue of transparency and accountability within the administration. It’s high time for a straightforward and honest conversation about these concerns, rather than dismissive retorts and blame games.
