Give her a medal immediately!
No one thought it could be any worse than dead-eyed Jen Psaki as she took to the White House podium on a daily basis to deliver relentless attacks on Joe Biden’s behalf. Psaki’s replacement, however, is taking the cake.
According to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, struggling Americans are actually prepared to deal with a full-blown economic recession thanks to Joe Biden’s fiscal policies, namely the American Rescue Plan.
On Tuesday, Jean-Pierre revealed that the administration was in fact preparing for a recession, despite Biden’s assertion that it is “not inevitable” and her claim that “we don’t see it happening right now.”
What’s that? More mixed messages? Go figure!
When asked about a possible recession in the United States economy, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre praised the president for his economic agenda.
“We see that our economic strength that we have seen from this past year from the action that the president has taken with the American Rescue Plan with what we have seen with the historic gains, that is going to help us deal with the recession,” she said before correcting herself during the daily press briefing on Tuesday.
“Right now, we don’t see a recession right now,” Jean-Pierre added. “We are not in a recession right now. Right now, we are in a transition.”

Biden himself is not a fan of questions about his failing economy, proven by his behavior on Monday when he lashed out at a female reporter who asked about skyrocketing rates of inflation.
Joe Biden really doesn't like when the media challenge him even a little bit.

“I was talking to Larry Summers this morning,” he added. “There’s nothing inevitable about a recession.”
The Federal Reserve’s decision to sharply raise interest rates on top of record-high food and fuel prices has led to some economists predicting a recession as soon as the end of 2022.
Whether we hit a recession or not, it doesn’t take away from the fact that everything is more expensive and less efficient with Biden at the helm, which seems to be the case for every Democrat administration.
Voters should consider the state of affairs right before the pandemic struck when Trump was President of the United States: Everything was more efficient, less expensive, peace prevailed, and America was on the rise.
Let’s make that happen again at the voting booth.
