Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s only job is to obscure the facts. No matter how bad Joe Biden acts or what he says, she’ll run cover him.
But the White House descended into chaos after being caught in a terrible lie.
With so much news coverage surrounding the historic indictment of Donald Trump, Joe Biden has been getting a pass.
He’s hoping Americans have forgotten about the awful actions he has taken over the last year.
Let’s take a little trip down memory lane…
Preceding Trump’s indictment, Biden made history when his DOJ raided former president Trump’s house in Mar-a-Lago over alleged mishandling of classified information.
Almost immediately after these allegations were leveled against Trump, revelations surfaced showing Biden has been stashing classified documents for decades at multiple locations around the country.
While this scandal unfolds, over 200,000 illegal immigrants are encountered every single month by Border Patrol per government statistics for February (the most recent data available).
And who can forget about the Chinese spy balloon debacle, where Biden allowed foreign actors to violate American airspace for days, gathering information on sensitive military sites.
Of course, the Biden administration claimed the Chinese got no information from the mission, but they just got called out for lying to the people.
When asked regarding President Joe Biden’s clearly misleading statements that American officials were able to prevent the Chinese spy balloon from acquiring vital information, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer.
The issue was brought by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy, who asked the press secretary to explain why Biden would have made such a claim if he knew it was false.
Doocy: "The DNI said today that the U.S. does not appear to have provided critical new insights into the People's Republic of China. So, is it they didn't provide any new critical insights or they didn't get anything"

“On the China spycraft, why did President Biden say about the China spycraft in February, ‘We were able to protect sensitive sites against collection’ if that’s not true?” Doocy inquired.
Jean-Pierre refused to answer the issue, instead stating that it was possible that the reporting was incorrect rather than President Biden.
“I’m not going to go into — dive into any reporting. That’s not something I’m going to do, I’m not going to confirm any reporting …” she said.
CNN was one of several news sites to reveal earlier this week that, despite the Biden administration’s statements to the contrary, the balloon was capable of collecting data and “transmitting information back to Beijing in real time.”
Moreover, they had not yet assessed whether or not the equipment onboard the balloon would have allowed the data to be deleted immediately after transmission — which could potentially mean that China was able to retrieve and then delete data without the US ever knowing what it was.
Doocy continued to press Jean-Pierre on the subject, asking, “The DNI said today that the U.S. does not appear to have provided critical new insights to the People’s Republic of China. So, is it they didn’t provide any new critical insights or they didn’t get anything?”
“We knew the flight path of the balloon before it crossed the United States … we took precautions,” Jean-Pierre replied, going on to repeat Biden’s claim that the administration had prevented the balloon from accessing any sensitive information.
