Deputy White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre passed the buck for the failures of the Biden administration, taking aim at Republicans for purportedly making things worse for Americans.

During Thursday’s press briefing with reporters, Jean-Pierre claimed that Republicans are not only intentionally trying to “hurt” President Joe Biden’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they are also “explicitly rooting for inflation to get worse.”

After claiming that the president “turned around a failing COVID response and a sputtering economy,” Jean-Pierre went on to tout the purported record of accomplishments by Democrats and the administration.

“We delivered because we stayed focused on what the American people care about and did the work. That’s exactly what’s happening here,” she said before throwing GOP lawmakers under the bus.

“Meanwhile, Republicans are actively seeking to hurt the pandemic response explicitly rooting for inflation to get worse,” she said.

“And so they’re blocking what we’re trying to do for the American people, which is bringing down the cost and doing the work on behalf of the American people. So of course, any president wants anything to happen sooner. He wants us to get this done as soon as possible. He wants to deliver the Build Back Better plan for the American families as soon as possible,” she added. “But we understand that it’s going to take time, but we’re going to continue doing the work.”

The deputy press secretary seemed to have forgotten which party is currently controlling the White House and Congress. But Twitter users were happy to remind her.
