Karine Jean-Pierre is in hot water after she made this one shocking claim

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is the Biden regime’s top mouthpiece.

She’s in way over her head.

And Karine Jean-Pierre is in hot water after she made this one shocking claim.

Joe Biden was hit with some of the worst news of his Presidency when September’s inflation report clocked in at a scorching-hot 8.3% for the month of August.

The number came in higher than experts predicted, proving that inflation isn’t subsiding despite the claims of the Biden regime.

Shortly after the devastating inflation report was released, Joe Biden took an absurd victory lap and held a White House ceremony for his wildly misnamed Inflation Reduction Act.

The $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act showers left-wing priorities like green energy with cash and makes inflation even worse.

In a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre fumbled around trying to find a way to defend Biden from the awful news about inflation.

A reporter asked Jean-Pierre what Joe Biden was doing to bring down the cost of living for the American people.

“When you look at the data, the inflation data, look, we’re seeing more progress bringing global inflation down in the U.S. economy as I just stated moments ago. Overall, prices have been essentially flat in our country these — these last two months. That is welcome news for American families, with more work still to do,” Jean-Pierre claimed.

The Biden regime is now trying to blame skyrocketing inflation on global problems.

Under Biden’s Presidency, America experienced some of the highest inflation in the developed world thanks to the Democrats’ unprecedented spending spree.

While Jean-Pierre laughably claims that prices are “essentially flat,” the latest inflation report completely refuted this lie after prices climbed even higher.

But this didn’t stop Jean-Pierre from trying to fool the press with another whopper of a lie.

“This month, we saw some welcome moderation in the price increases for food at the grocery store. It’s moderating, which is important,” Jean-Pierre said.

The latest inflation report revealed that Biden is setting inflation records not seen since Jimmy Carter’s failed Presidency.

Food surged to a 13.5% year-over-year increase, marking its biggest jump since 1979.

“And real wages are going up again for the second month in a row, giving hard families — hardworking families just a little bit of breathing room that you hear the President say,” Jean-Pierre falsely claimed.

With their purchasing power being eroded by soaring prices, Joe Biden’s inflation has forced every American to take a pay cut.

The Biden regime’s own numbers flatly refute the claim that real wages are going up.

A report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that real wages fell for the month of August.

“Real average weekly earnings decreased 0.1 percent over the month due to the change in real average hourly earnings combined with a 0.3 percent decrease in the average workweek,” the report said.

Karine Jean-Pierre once again humiliated herself by trying to find a way to spin Joe Biden’s catastrophic inflation numbers.
