When Trump was President, the Democrats credited *Obama* for economic success and blamed *Trump* for any economic turbulence. Now that Biden is “President”, his White House is doing something very similar.
During a press briefing on Wednesday, Karine Jean-Pierre made it clear that she is going to blame *Republicans* for any future economic downturns, such as high gas prices and tumbling 401k’s, even though Joe Biden is the one in the White House. Yes, really.
“They’re [Republicans] threatening to kill millions of jobs and 401k plans by trying to hold the debt limit hostage,” Jean-Pierre said on Wednesday.

Seems to me that she’s already got the excuses lined up for her master Joe Biden.
If the economy starts to tumble? REPUBLICANS!
If the economy thrives? BIDEN!
And so the circle goes.
However, this wasn’t the only head-turning moment at the White House press briefing today. She also acted like a 4-year old child when she got into a heated exchange with a reporter.
After completely dodging a question about Biden’s classified document scandal, things went off the rails. Watch:
Jean-Pierre: "I am going to refer you to the DOJ."
Reporter: "I'm simply asking you to comment on the person you work for."
Jean-Pierre: "I just commented. We're moving on. I already answered your question."
Reporter: "You really didn't."
Jean-Pierre: "That's your opinion." pic.twitter.com/gxqs6rgXpz

KJP is *really* bad at this.
