White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was blatantly embarrassed by Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich.
This administration has been taking credit for a lot of things that it had nothing to do with, such as job creation and budget deficit reduction.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently debunked that claim.
The CBO stated that it was all due to the economy returning to pre-pandemic activity, not the IRA or anything this administration has been doing.
Heinrich asked KJP, "How are people supposed to take this kind of messaging, on their most important issue, seriously when some of this feels like smoke and mirrors?"
KJP dodged the question, instead claiming that the American Rescue Plan "put us in a place where the economy turned back on."
Heinrich cut her off, stating, "None of his programs have actually reduced the deficit.
"It just happened on its own."
KJP went on repeat, then took a shot at the GOP tax cut during Trump's term.
Heinrich continued, "What is one thing [Biden] did that reduced the deficit?"
KJP has no response, so she shut down Heinrich and moved to the next question.
They keep doubling down on lies even when they are caught red-handed telling them.
What I would really like to see is the press pool working together on this and keep firing the same question at her until we get an answer or they just admit they are lying.
