Fox News White House correspondent on Monday Peter Ducey Ask Jean-Pierre about a recent one President Biden’s Twitter Claims that the way to deal with the current rate of inflation is to ensure “the richest companies pay their fair share”.
“How does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gasoline, the cost of used cars, the cost of food for everyday Americans?” asked Doocy, to which Jean-Pierre responded with a rambling, incoherent statement that contained imprecise Democrats on the Taxation of the rich and climate change talking points.
“So, look, I think we’re encouraging people who are doing a good job, especially those who care about climate change, to support a fairer tax code that won’t change — not charging manufacturers, workers, police, builders more Expenses. A percentage of their income.”
Jean-Pierre claimed not to let “the luckiest man in our country” “get in the way of lowering energy costs” — though that’s hard to follow — and spoke of tackling climate change and supporting “basic collective bargaining rights as well.” She It also advocates for a “fairer tax law”, arguing that “manufacturing workers, police officers” must pay “higher taxes” than “people who don’t pay taxes”, which is “unfair”.
Twitter users derided the speech as rambling and meaningless. “Damn,” tweeted the Heritage Foundation’s John Cooper.
Republican communications expert Matt Whitlock even claimed Jean-Pierre’s handling of the issue was as bad as Vice President Kamala Harris’ gaffe. “From Kamala Harris and Michael Scott School of Communication, you just start a sentence and see where it takes you, no matter what questions you’re asked,” he tweeted.
“Actually, it looks like she may have just read the wrong answer from her written talking points — whatever Peter’s question was,” Whitlock added. “The talking points are good – but you should at least try to answer one question.”
JD Rucker, editor of Liberty Daily, wrote: “This is only Karine Jean-Pierre’s first day, so we’ll let her benefit from skepticism. It’s easy to sidestep questions. Eventually she will Mastering her predecessor’s art to accuse Republicans Trump, Putin or Peter Doocy of representing all the evil in the world.”
Republicans Author Nick Adams, who gave Jean-Pierre an Economics 101 course, tweeted: “What doesn’t keep inflation in check: – Tax the rich. What does it: – Raise labor force participation – Reducing government spending – quantifying austerity – lowering energy prices…someone give Carine Jean-Pierre some notes!”
“Karine Jean-Pierre spent almost 3 minutes on this and never answered Doocy’s questions,” tweeted conservative commentator Carmine Sabia.
Real Clear News White House correspondent Philip Wegman tweeted: “She talked about the need for fair tax laws, collective bargaining and climate change without addressing the underlying issues.”
“This is really unbearable,” tweeted Brian Riedel, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. He added, “Not only did she answer questions by reading pre-written notes, but she seemed to be flipping it wrong. page because she didn’t even remotely address the problem topic (inflation).”
