If you thought Jen Psaki was dumb, just take a look at what her replacement has to say as a response to a simple question.
Notice that she couldn’t even understand the question, let alone answer it.
And she even appeared to read much of her response.
Peter Doocy: Karine, congratulations. Nice to see you out there.
Karine Jean-Pierre: Thank you.
Peter Doocy: The President’s Twitter account posted the other day, you want to bring down inflation, let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. How does raising taxes on corporations reduce inflation?
Karine Jean-Pierre: So, are you talking about a specific Tweet?
Peter Doocy: He Tweeted, If you want to bring down inflation, let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share.
Karine Jean-Pierre: Well, you know, we have talked about, we have talked about this this past year, about making sure that the wealthiest among us are paying their fair share. And that is important to do. And that is something that, you know, the President has been, you know, working on every day when we talk about inflation and lowering costs. And so it’s very important that you know, as we’re seeing costs rise, as we’re talking about how to, you know, you know, build America that safe, and that’s equal for everyone and doesn’t leave anyone behind. That is an important part of that as well.
Peter Doocy: But how does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gas, the cost of a used car, the cost of food for everyday Americans?
Karine Jean-Pierre: So look, I think we encourage those who have done very well, right, especially those who care about climate change, to support a fairer tax code that doesn’t change, that doesn’t charge manufacturers, workers, cops, builders, a higher percentage of their earnings, that the most fortunate people in our nation, and not let that stand in the way of reducing energy costs and fighting this existential problem, if you think about that, as an example, and to support basic collective bargaining rights as well, right, that’s also important. But look, it is, you know, by not without having a fairer tax code, which is what I’m talking about, then all like manufacturing workers, cops, you know, it’s not fair for them to have to pay higher taxes than the folks that were, who are who are not paying taxes at all.
Peter Doocy: But what does that have to do with inflation? The President said you want to bring down inflation. Let’s make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. Jeff Bezos came out and Tweeted about that. He said the newly created disinformation board should review this tweet. Would you be okay with that?
Karine Jean-Pierre: Look, it’s not a huge mystery why one of the wealthiest individuals on earth right opposes an economic agenda that is for the middle class that cuts some of the biggest costs families face, fights inflation for the long haul, right. And that’s what we’re talking about. That’s why we’re talking about lowering inflation here and adds to the historic deficit reduction the President is achieving by asking the richest taxpayers and corporations to pay their fair share. That is what we’re talking about.
I wasn’t the only one who thought this exchange was an embarrassment.
Just take a look at some of the comments surrounding this short video…
“Good God. Someone slap her. She’s stuck on stupid.”
“I just lost 20 IQ points listening to this MORON. How does one vaccinate against this?”
“This “Echos of Kamala”…. another dumb rock in a box full of dumb rocks.”
“Corporations pass that shit on to consumers…it RAISES inflation. Dumb ass bitch.”
“She was not chosen for her smarts. She has none. She was chosen for her color and her sexual persuasion. What an irresponsible decision.”
“When you hire based on color and gay, what could go wrong?”
“Her qualifications are black, female, lesbian, and hates all things conservative. Maybe they should have checked to see if she was also competent?”
“Taxing wealthy corporations will not create American jobs or increase GDP. It will help China. And it will only cost consumers more to buy their products and services. Maybe the government should tax itself. This will do more damage to our economy.”
