Karine Jean-Pierre is obviously not very good at her job, but many of the battles she’s required to fight also aren’t winnable.

That’s because putting a positive spin on Joe Biden’s Presidency is an impossible task.

And the jaw-dropping move Karine Jean-Pierre pulled when she was cornered about Joe Biden’s failures will leave you stunned.

Joe Biden’s Presidency has been an abject failure – at least, that’s the opinion of a majority of the American electorate.

Biden’s approval rating has been net-negative for two and a half years.

To top it all off, Americans don’t only believe the Democrat President is doing a bad job, but also that he simply isn’t up to the job.

According to a recent Associated Press poll, more than 60% of Americans have little to no confidence that Biden is capable of serving as President.

Worse yet, 80% of Independent voters say that they lack confidence in Biden’s mental abilities.

These are eye-popping numbers, and while they suggest that no amount of spin can turn them around, it seems as though the White House Press Secretary ought to be ready to try.

That’s not what happened during a recent interview on WBT radio in Charlotte, North Carolina, though.

Jean-Pierre: “I can’t believe you’re asking me this question . . . ”

When asked point blank if Biden has dementia, Jean-Pierre became audibly irritated.

“I can’t even believe you’re asking me this question,” she answered. “That is an incredibly offensive question to ask.”

“But you know people ask it…” the show’s host, Mark Garrison, shot back.

She then filibustered (without actually answering the question) and said that “if you watch him every day, you’ll see how focused he has been and historic his actions have been.”

The problem, of course, is that the public has watched Biden, and nearly 2/3 of voters say they don’t see what Jean-Pierre claims to see.

“The premise of your question is insulting,” Jean-Pierre continued, before refusing to talk about it further.

The conversation then turned to the economy and gas prices, leading Biden’s Press Secretary to straight up lie her face off.

“The economy was in a tailspin because of the last administration, because of what President Trump left us with, now you’re asking about gas prices,” Jean-Pierre claimed. “The President took action on gas prices. Let’s not forget, the Russian invasion of Ukraine skyrocketed prices of gas, and because the president took action we are in a different place than we were a year ago on gas prices. Eggs, milk, seafood products, all the important groceries — those prices have gone down because of what this president has been able to do.”

Russia’s military incursion into Ukraine happened exclusively on Biden’s watch – over a year after Trump left office – so it’s disingenuous to shift the blame for gas prices on that, given that the Russians probably saw weakness in Biden and decided that with him at the helm it was safe to act.

Also, Biden can’t claim credit for decreased grocery prices when there is no such decrease to speak of, as inflation remains far above where it was under Trump.

A recitation of easily disproved talking points . . . then a click . . . then a dial tone

After spouting that ridiculousness, in a surreal moment, Jean-Pierre said, “Thank you” and hung up on Garrison.

While that may have been rude, the joke is on the Biden White House.

Biden’s approval is languishing in the high 30s, and every day that goes by is simply one day closer to the end of his political career.

Of course, when your record is horrific, the spinning is that much more difficult.

No wonder Karine Jean-Pierre is so frustrated.
