Well, it looks like Jen Psaki’s replacement is just as bad at her job as Jen was. Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, sounds more like a Democratic spokeswoman than a representative of America’s president. She frequently refuses to answer the tough questions, and even scolds reporters for doing their job.
Recently, she refused to answer a question about why Biden gave up a notorious arms dealer to Russia, in exchange for a basketball player.
At Thursday’s press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy dared to ask White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why Russia got such a better deal.
“Look, you know, I’ve talked about this, and I’ll say this again. Here were our choices. Our choices was: Brittney or no one at all,” the president’s spokesperson said…
“And they give up a professional athlete,” Doocy interjected. “We gave up a prolific arms dealer who was convicted of trying to kill Americans, who is called the “Merchant of Death.”

KJP dodged a legitimate question. Why did Biden trade a killer for just this woman, when a respected Marine is still in Russia–denied basic human rights? She didn’t have an answer to that. But things got much worse when an African reporter tried to ask her a question.
From Red State:
On Thursday, he made a stink about not being called on when he asked why she kept refusing to take a question about the Africa summit. She just lost it and walked out.

Wow. How unprofessional. The reporter she insulted is Simon Ateba of Today News Africa. He was the one who stood up for Daily Caller’s reporter when Jean-Pierre insulted them during Fauci’s last interview.
Ateba tried to ask a question, but could get it out before KJP rejected him. Then she claimed she was trying to answer his question, but clearly wasn’t interested. Jean-Pierre looked like a spoiled child who could just do what she was asked.
This woman serves the president and is supposed to keep America informed on important issues. Yet she can answer a question from a reporter? She stormed out of the room like a child who didn’t get dessert. Unbelievable.
But that’s what we’ve come to expect from this administration. They fail constantly, but refuse to own up to it. Like little babies, Biden and his team refuse to learn from their mistakes and do better.
- White House press secretary KJP stormed out of the presser after a reporter asked her questions.
- She refused to answer why Biden gave up an arms dealer in exchange for a basketball player.
- KJP has just a bad reputation as the previous press secretary, refusing to answer tough questions.
