(PJ Media) White House Press Secretary Karnie Jean-Pierre has never had a good relationship with the truth.
She will just say anything, no matter how ridiculous or factually incorrect, and somehow expect that she can get away with it. Unfortunately for her, she hasn’t learned that Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy won’t let her get away with it.
During a press briefing earlier this week, Doocy asked Jean-Pierre about Biden visiting the border, and she responded with an easily disproven whopper.
“Kevin McCarthy says that he invited President Biden down to the border. Has the President RSVP’d?” Doocy asked, prompting laughter from Jean-Pierre. “Well, we know — we know the president has never been down to the border. The possible next speaker says that he wants him to go with him. So, is he going to?”
“So, look, he’s been there,” Jean-Pierre insisted. “He’s been to the border. And since he took office—”
“When?” Doocy asked. “When did he go to the border?”
“Since he took office, the — President Biden has been taking action to fix our immigration system and secure our border,” she claimed. “And that’s why, on day one, he put forward an immigration — immigration reform — a piece of legislation to deal with what is currently happening at the border.”
She then rambled off some more talking points, never responding to the question posed by Doocy.
DOOCY: “Kevin McCarthy says that he invited president Biden down to the border. How does the president RSVP? We know the president has never been down to the border…”
