No one can understand why Joe Biden keeps incompetent White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on the job.
Now Jean-Pierre took an already thorny situation and just made it worse.
And Donald Trump raised hell after this jaw-dropping admission by Karine Jean-Pierre.
Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, and Mitch McConnell are trying to pressure House Republicans into accepting another $61 billion in funding for Ukraine by tying it to a border bill.
But McConnell agreed to a surrender on the border that trades voluntary border security measures – meaning Joe Biden will never implement them – for the ability to import nearly 2,000,000 illegal aliens every year and hand them automatic work permits as soon as Joe Biden smuggles them into the United States.
McConnell, Schumer, and House Speaker Mike Johnson met at the White House where the goal was to bamboozle Johnson into thinking Biden, Schumer, and McConnell actually cared about securing the border as opposed to using some phony bill as a fig leaf to ram their Ukraine funding through Congress.
That scam didn’t even last six hours as Karine Jean-Pierre couldn’t stick to the script in an interview on CNN.
Betraying Biden, Schumer, and McConnell’s true priorities Jean-Pierre discussed the White House meeting with CNN and claimed the important discussions centered around Ukraine while never once mentioning the southern border.

Donald Trump already slammed the proposed deal as a surrender to Joe Biden’s open borders agenda and urged Johnson to reject the bill.
“I do not think we should do a Border Deal, at all, unless we get EVERYTHING needed to shut down the INVASION of Millions & Millions of people, many from parts unknown, into our once great, but soon to be great again, Country!” Trump wrote. “Also, I have no doubt that our wonderful Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, will only make a deal that is PERFECT ON THE BORDER. Remember, without Strong Borders and Honest Elections, we don’t have a Country!!!” Trump wrote on social media.
Trump’s opposition meant the border/Ukraine funding bill already faced long odds.
Jean-Pierre admitting the border provisions were a sham designed to win support, lighting another $61 billion in taxpayer money on fire in the Ukraine war should be the final nail in the coffin.
