    One thing you have to say about Peppermint Patty - she was a master at lying...

    But even way back in the Reagan years, it was commonly joked that the job of "Press Secretary" was "somebody who gets paid to lie for the President". She just happens to suck at it worse than anybody I've ever seen.

    (Come to think of it, maybe she's trying her best to represent his fumbling and bumbling and incoherency! )

    Yeah, but I think Peppermint Patty II is flailing so badly that even black lesbians don't want to defend her.
    It looks like SOP for press secretaries who don't want to field the hard questions to me.

    It doesn't make her qualified, but does make her immune to criticism, at least in the minds of liberals. Remember the good ol days when any negative critique of Obama was immediately denounced as racist?

    Working as intended?
    When they said their administration would look like America I guess that meant hiring a slew of stupid people...

    As long as you have the right skin color and/or sexual orientation it doesn't matter how incompetent you are...

    Report: White House Press Corp Is Not Pleased with Karine Jean-Pierre

    Guy highlighted how poorly White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been handling her job, and it appears that POLITICO has taken notice as well. The Wednesday night edition of West Wing Playbook Exclusive for the outlet noted that "Karine Jean-Pierre's tough debut: Unforced stumbles and press corps grumbles," which began by pointing out that she's had "a rocky first month."

    Jean-Pierre has memorably made a Freudian slip, such as when she accurately but accidentally pointed out that Biden is looking to "elevate" the pain at the pump. She also is known to flip through her binders without having a clear answer for the press.
