EXTRA! Rough First Day!

First days on the job are always tough. You’re never sure what to expect. You’re not sure what pitfalls are out there, and no one is going to stop what is going on in their work lives to bail you out of a jam all of the time. It’s a tough thing to be sure, and the only way around it is to put your head down and bull through it.

And that’s the type of day that Karine Jean-Pierre had Monday.

Jean-Pierre took over the job as Press Secretary from Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, who’s moving over to MSNBC. And she was greeted by Peter Doocy from Fox News with an incredibly difficult question for a socialist to answer. Doocy posed the question, “How does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gas, the cost of a used car, the cost of food for everyday Americans?” He was asking because Joe Biden tweeted that the best way to deal with the inflation problem was to make sure that the “wealthiest corporations pay their fair share”.

Well, Karine had a problem with that one. Her rambling response included, “So, look…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 change…doesn’t charge manufacturers, workers, cops, builders, a higher percentage of their earnings.”

Huh?

First of all, can anyone tell me what in hell “climate change” has to do with the inflation rate? It has absolutely nothing to do with it other than to once again, foist blame on someone other than Joe Biden for the mess that he got us into with his overspending.

Now, it wasn’t just Jean-Pierre’s response that was very rambling and disjointed. Did anyone also realize the fact she was reading her answer? If you look back at that quote, she said, “a fairer tax code that doesn’t change….doesn’t charge…”. She mis-read the word “charge”. She had her book open to the answer and was directly reading from it, looking down to her left.

Now, I get it that the first day is usually a bad day because you’re the new kid and don’t understand everything yet. But let’s face it. Jean-Pierre just wasn’t prepared to face Doocy. She sat in several times when Doocy sparred with Psaki. She should have known it was coming. In fact, she HAD to know it was coming because she had her answer written out! She read the answer. And it was a terrible answer.

I used to host those weekend shows on talk stations that basically are paid for infomercials. I would sell the time to clients, and then sit in and co-host the show with them if they wanted. And I always told them that the first show they would do would be the worst show they would ever do. And it always was. But you would expect that at this level of government, you’re going to at the very least get someone who is prepared to meet with the press, and be able to cognitively answer their questions without reading the answer. Let’s just hope she gets better! So far, I’m not impressed!

    1. Please show me a Democrat ANYWHERE that commits to improve on anything they are doing. They feel that they know more than the rest of the world, and are entitled to do whatever they need to do in order to fix it so that they get their way.
