Unethical Quote Of The Week: Karine Jean-Pierre

“Ed — Ed — Ed, I am — we don’t need — we don’t need to have this. We work very well together… You don’t need to be contentious with me here, Ed.”

—-White House paid-liar Karine Jean-Pierre in a press briefing session yesterday, expressing her shock that a non-Fox mainstream media reporter would be so boorish as to ask her a tough question.

Redolent of the some of the same issues surrounding the inept Secretary of Transportation (who would surely have been sacked long ago if he were not gay and in a cute same-sex marriage), press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was obviously hired because she’s black, an immigrant, and a lesbian who is also in a same-sex marriage. Against all odds, she is even worse at her job than Pete Buttigieg is at his. It’s impossible to hide: she is frequently unprepared, she sometimes reads from the wrong crib notes, she can’t pronounce key words and phrases (Like that toughie, “Nobel Prize”), she gets petulant when she’s challenged, and is almost as incoherent as the President and Vice-President. Worst of all for a paid liar, she sometimes reveals inconvenient truths.

The quote above was such a case. Yesterday, the blatant hypocrisy of the President’s (and his party’s, and his party’s captive propaganda organs) condemnation of Donald Trump possessing classified documents became so throbbingly clear that even the mainstream media couldn’t defend it. The best that Karine could come up with under a barrage of questions was to duck about a dozen questions, citing an ongoing “review” and “referring” reporters about to either the White House counsel or the Department of Justice. That’s pretty much the best Jean-Pierre ever does, frankly.

Then a reporter other than Fox’s Peter Doocy, usually the only reporter who asks the questions that need to be asked, challenged poor Karine by reminding everyone of Biden’s pledge of transparency after he was sworn in, and asking

“One of the reasons we ask this is because on, like, day two of this administration, when he swore all of you in, the President said, quote, ‘I’m going to make mistakes. When I make them, I’ll acknowledge them and I’ll tell you, and I’ll need your help to help me correct them.’”

How dare he? Don’t all the reporters know—that is except for Fox News reporters like Doocy, but then, as President Obama said, Fox News isn’t a real journalism source (because real journalists are good Democrats)—that their job is to protect Biden and his party, and to hide embarrassing facts and events as much as possible? Jean-Pierre’s answer clearly demonstrated this corrupt relationship to all who were paying attention. “Working very well” with the White House means enabling and burying “mistakes,” not exposing them.

Real journalists are supposed to be contentious. Propagandists and partisan hacks, in contrast, are supposed to know their place.

Good job, Karine! Thanks for reminding us.

  1. I always found Sam Donaldson an annoying, self-aggrandizing pain in the ass a la Howard Cosell. Of course, during his era, he was lionized by all and became the archetype for White House correspondents (of course because he despised Republicans). Until now. I sure wish Sam were still active to see him turn himself into knots trying to come up with some new persona he could adopt to fit into the current White House press corps (pronounced “Kore,” Barack).

  2. There’s been a new familiarity on display with KJP and the reporters in the White House Briefing. KJP has taken to jargon. Bilateral is now bi lat. Anything having to do with the legislature is now ledge. There are more, but watching KJP is painful and those two examples are just the ones I remember.
    Her frustration is getting through and I hope she’ll be resigning soon.
