Jean-Pierre falls face first as he tries to explain Biden calling for dead congressman – The Published Reporter®

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre clumsily tried — and in vain — to explain a bizarre incident in which President Biden called out to former Indiana Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, who tragically died in a car accident last month.

WASHINGTON, DC — After another embarrassing gaffe on the part of President Joe Biden when he repeatedly called for Representative Jackie Walorski (R-IN) at an event on Wednesday — despite the fact that she had passed away tragically the month before in a tragic accident. car accident — White House press officer Karine Jean-Pierre tried clumsily — and unsuccessfully — to explain the bizarre incident to reporters during a press conference on Thursday.

Biden, 79, appeared at the White House conference on hunger, nutrition and health in Washington DC — an event Walorski, 58, had been a strong supporter of — when he began scanning the room for the late congressman during a speech, and started calling her.

“I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like Senator Braun, Senator Booker, Representative… Jackie, Jackie, are you here?” said Biden. “I think she would be here to make this happen.”

This was seen as especially odd because the White House had previously released a statement — attributed to Biden himself — mourning Walorski’s death in an August 3 car accident that also killed two of its staffers and a motorist. in a separate vehicle.

The morbid faux-pas was immediately attacked by critics of the president who claim his cognitive abilities are declining, and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried — as she has regularly done in the past — with reporters at a press. information on Thursday.

“[President Biden] called congressional champions on this matter and acknowledged her incredible work,” she said. “He was already planning to welcome the congresswoman’s family to the White House on Friday, a bill in her honor will be signed next Friday. So of course she was on his mind, she was top of mind for the president.”

However, a reporter then asked the press secretary:, “The confusing thing is, if she and the family are top of mind, does the president think she’s alive and in the room?”

Jean-Pierre said she didn’t find that confusing, to which the reporter responded: “I have John Lennon on my mind almost every day, but I’m not looking for him.”

Wednesday’s incident comes as Biden has recently committed a series of embarrassing gaffes that have forced the White House to backtrack, including inadvertently revealing that he uses detailed notes on how to behave in meetings, as if tries to shake hands with people who aren’t there, and bizarrely say in a recent speech that the Inflation Reduction Act is financing health care and “God knows what else.”

When asked about this on Wednesday, White House spokesman Robyn Patterson simply attributed it to the president’s gruff and direct nature.

“The president speaks directly and candidly — straight from the shoulder, as he often says,” he said. “This has been critical to his success in everything from rallying the world to support Ukraine to empowering Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices,” Patterson added. “And whenever he feels the need to add context to something he’s said, or to direct his staff to do so — as any president does — he doesn’t hesitate to do so.”
