White House spox on stock market plunge, ‘that’s not something we keep an eye on every day’


New White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been thrust into a difficult position as she faces questions about record gas prices, staggering inflation and unprecedented shortages including baby formula, and on Wednesday, she was put on the spot over the stock market, a topic that she appeared to be ill-prepared to address.

On a day when the Dow Jones Industrial Average would plunge over 1,100 points, the biggest one-day loss since 2020, Jean-Pierre failed to demonstrate the sass and ability to think on her feet of her predecessor Jen Psaki and her mind-boggling answer won’t likely calm the criticism that she has received during her first week behind the podium.

Jean-Pierre’s stunning remarks that the White House isn’t closely monitoring the market should greatly alarm Americans who, in addition to the damage to their purchasing power due to the worst inflation in over four decades, could also see their 401k’s take a major hit if the markets go into a downward spiral.

When asked about the market, Jean-Pierre said, “The Fed chair, you know, the Federal Reserve is independent, we leave them to make their own policy decisions, we do not get involved in that, and nothing has changed on how we see the stock market.”

“We do not…that’s not something we keep an eye on every day, so I’m not going to comment about that from here,” she said.

Twitter users took to the platform to remark on Jean-Pierre’s suggestion that the administration was indifferent to the stock market.

She didn’t fare much better in her response to Fox News bulldog Peter Doocy who pressed her on the regime’s excuse that the pain at the pump was due to “Putin’s price hike” which, while lapped up by the sycophants in the media, has failed to resonate with Americans who are being gouged at the pump.

In the first week on the firing line, Jean-Pierre already looks like a deer in the headlights and is clearly in way over her head.
