Karine Jean-Pierre stepped in it when she was caught red-handed in this absurd lie

Karine Jean-Pierre is dropping the ball as White House Press Secretary.

She’s falling flat on her face trying to spin Joe Biden’s mounting failures.

And Karine Jean-Pierre stepped in it when she was caught red-handed in this absurd lie.

Astronomically high gas prices are one of the biggest problems plaguing the country under President Joe Biden.

After he declared war on American energy production, gas prices hit record highs last summer.

Biden made a reckless move to contain the political damage from high gas prices before last November’s Midterm elections.

The Biden regime dumped nearly 200 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) in a bid to lower prices.

The SPR, which is meant for a national emergency, is now at its lowest level since 1984, leaving the country in danger should a disruption to the oil supply occur.

The Biden regime is planning on refilling the SPR now that the Midterm elections have passed.

House Republicans are pushing legislation that would require future releases from the SPR be tied to increased drilling permits on federal lands and waters.

With gas prices climbing again, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre used a press briefing to try and put the blame on the new Republican majority in the House.

“House Republicans are using their narrow majority to force the American people to pay higher gas prices, just as big oil companies are amassing record profits,” Jean-Pierre said. “What’s even more alarming is that this is not the only attempt by the House Republican majority to raise costs on middle class families.”

Jean-Pierre is making the laughable claim that Republicans are trying to raise gas prices even though they’ve been fighting tooth and nail to unleash American energy production.

Gas prices have been on the rise since Joe Biden occupied the White House after he put his foot on the neck of American oil companies.

The bill put forward by House Republicans would lower gas prices by increasing American oil production on federal land and waters.

Under Joe Biden, the federal government has leased the fewest acres for oil and gas drilling on federal lands and waters since 1945.

On his first day in office, Biden began shutting down drilling permits for oil and gas on federal lands, which hold a significant amount of the country’s proven oil reserves.

Even the reliably Biden-friendly Bloomberg News admitted that the GOP’s plan would increase oil production.

Karine Jean-Pierre’s insane lie about House Republicans being responsible for high prices proves that she’s in way over her head as White House Press Secretary.
