Biden’s Press Secretary Gets Horrible News

OPINION | This article contains commentary that reflects the author's opinion.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is getting so bad that even reporters who personally like her are speaking out.

Jean-Pierre is also married to CNN reporter Suzanne Maria Malveaux.

Oliver Darcy, formerly of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” said, “You just get the feeling that you’re wasting your time, and whatever is in front of her in the binder is all she is going to say, no matter how many times you ask the question.”

Darcy continued, “It’s just a painful waste of time. She is arguably the least effective White House press secretary of the television era.”

Darcy added, “In recent days, Jean-Pierre has faced a noticeably vexed White House press corps that is openly revolting against her.”

“Many of the questions she has fielded have not been about the subject matter, but have centered on her very credibility and how she has performed in the job.”

Jean-Pierre’s credibility has been questioned over her handling of Biden’s recent classified documents scandal.

Cecilia Vega of ABC News said to Jean-Pierre, “On Friday, you stood here, though, and were asked about the issue of this document, by our count, some 18 times.”

“At that point, the president’s lawyers had found these five additional pages of classified documents. So, did you not know on Friday that those documents had been found when you were at the podium? Or are you being directed by someone not to be forthcoming on this issue?”

A White House scribe said, “She is really liked personally, but that shouldn’t be an excuse for her competence professionally.”
