Biden Advisors Starts Stuttering During After Simple Question

( )- During Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was joined by economic advisor Jared Bernstein who tried to put a positive spin on the bad economic news.

Newsmax White House correspondent James Rosen noted that July 19 would mark the first anniversary of President Biden claiming that high gas prices and inflation were “temporary” and asked Bernstein why the American public should have any faith in this administration’s assessments of the economy after watching inflation and prices increase for months, long before Russia invaded Ukraine.

Bernstein launched into a lengthy response that didn’t answer Rosen’s question.

Then Rosen asked Bernstein if the administration was trying to have it “both ways,” by saying rising gas prices have nothing to do with the president while giving the president credit when gas prices go down.

A stuttering Bernstein, looking like a deer in the headlights, tried to dispute Rosen’s claim, arguing there is no “both way thinking”

That’s a lot of “uh-uh-uh.”

But Rosen pressed on, adding, “So when they rose, it was Putin’s fault,” but when gas prices come down, Biden gets the credit.

A defensive Bernstein said he disagreed with “that framing,” arguing the gas prices went down because Biden is “working tirelessly” to lower the prices.

Tirelessly, except lifting his sanctions on US energy production.

Karine Jean-Pierre then came to the rescue, cutting off the exchange and moving on to another reporter.
