The Ineptness of the Biden Administration Is Becoming Comical – Opinion

Earlier on Tuesday, I penned a piece about the White House’s pathetic response when pressed on the president’s voicemail to Hunter Biden discussing the latter’s business dealings. Talking about this exchange was a waste of time, I knew.

Evidently, Karine Jean-Pierre was given one of the worst briefings she has ever had, and it is now comical. It sure feels like we are at the point where it’s worth asking exactly what this administration Does You can rest assured that the habitual shoulder-shrugging will soon be over.

I wrote on Macron’s confrontation with Biden in Europe where he essentially told the US president that he’s clueless without actually saying it. The exchange was captured on tape and became a hot mic moment. Yet, Jean-Pierre claims she hasn’t evenYou’ve heard of it? Could someone please remind me of her role? She’s the press secretary for the President of the United States and claims to be completely unaware of one of the biggest stories to come from the G7?

I mean come on, you can’t do anything but laugh, and Jean-Pierre was delivering her best stand-up routine all briefing.

Wait a second. According to reports, oil from Strategic Petroleum Reserve has been exported overseas. This includes China. Given the global oil market, how is this possible? Anyone with a remedial understanding of the issue should know the oil we are releasing is ending up in foreign countries because that’s How it works. It’s also why emptying out the SPR to purchase a few cents off at the pump is so stupid and short-sighted. But the White House wants to have its cake and eat it too, pretending they are “doing something” while obfuscating about what that something entails.

Jean-Pierre answered a question about our current recession, and she did not hesitate to answer.

I guess in this day and age of everyone being able to “identify” as whatever they want, facts need not apply, and the White House identifies as being economic literate when they clearly aren’t. Atlanta Fed tracker indicated that 2Q GDP was -2.1%. According to Atlanta Fed tracker, 1Q GDP was -1.6%. This means the United States has entered a recession. The administration’s response: “Nah, we aren’t in a recession.”

You are either stupid or they believe they can treat you as such. Peter Doocy exposed that attitude in this final clip I’m going to share. Jean-Pierre is asked about Biden’s shift from blaming Vladimir Putin for gas prices to blaming individual gas stations, of which a majority are individually owned.

Jean-Pierre, who tries to avoid answering the question with the suggestion that wholesale oil prices had fallen 15% while retail prices for gasoline have dropped 3 percent, can be seen in this clip.

First of all, that’s true. The record low gas price of $4.80 per gallon is now, down from $5.01 on June 14, when it was at its highest. The decline is now less than 5 per cent. Prices for oil were $118/barrel on June 14. WTI Crude was $102. It is a decrease of 8.5 percent.

Even still, the White House’s answer ignores that raw crude is not the only factor in gas prices. Transporting fuel costs money. When diesel prices rise and pipelines shut down, gas prices go up. Then there’s the issue with refining capacity, which appears to be the biggest bottleneck right now. In short, Jean-Pierre’s lesson on gas prices is something out of the mind of a seven-year-old. The argument ignores the most important aspects while being painfully simplistic.

To protect the Biden administration, all this is to avoid them having to assume responsibility. Remember, the “adults” are back in charge, but apparently, the adults know absolutely nothing and can’t accomplish anything. The White House can’t have it both ways, and the ineptness on display speaks for itself.
