White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s struggles at the podium in trying to cover for an increasingly unpopular President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies continued on Tuesday during a discussion about the president’s expected actions on bringing down gas prices.
Jean-Pierre explained that the president was trying to help her in her strained explanation. “elevate” Americans’ pain when she meant to say Biden would “alleviate the pain that American families are feeling when it comes to gas prices.”
“The president has been very clear in making sure that he does everything that he can to elevate—to alleviate the pain that American families are feeling when it comes to gas prices,”She replied:
Freudian slip occurs as diesel and gasoline prices rise to astronomical heights. Analysts predict that they will continue rising without any significant policy changes from the Administration or the Democrat-led Congress.
Jean-Pierre’s gaffe was quickly picked up on by critics of the administration.
Ted Cruz (Republican from Texas) said that it was “a”. “Freudian slip from the Biden admin.”

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli WARD remarked on the fact that her press secretary was a “press secretary”. “got it right the first time”Biden’s words elevate the pain.
“She’s doing just great at this job,”. Stephen L. Miller (a contributor editor at The Spectator) sarcastically replied.
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich added, “Elevating the pain. Correct.”
Fox News adds:
Jean-Pierre offered vague assurances in the press conference that America would not enter an economic recession, despite Americans facing very real economic challenges every day.
Although she denied that America was in recession, she said it. “focus”Instead of putting it on yours, “stable” future.
“Right now we don’t see a recession. Right now, that is, we’re not in a recession right now. Right now we’re in a transition where … we are going to a place of stable and steady growth and that’s going to be our focus,”She replied:
She called earlier this month on the oil companies to perform their duties. “patriotic duty” to do more to make gas prices affordable, though oil is a publicly-traded commodity and prices are largely reflected on investors’ views of government policies and other factors affecting the industry.
“We know where to put the blame on the war, but oil companies, they have refineries, they have responsibility, too. What they have been doing is taking advantage of the war”She claimed that she was from Ukraine.
The accusations were repelled by oil companies and industry associations.
Chevron CEO Michael Wirth said this week that his company’s mission was to “work every day to help provide the world with the energy it demands and to lift up the lives of billions of people who rely on these supplies.”
“Chevron and its 37,000 employees work every day to help provide the world with the energy it demands and to lift up the lives of billions of people who rely on these supplies,”Wirth said.
He said that Chevron would like to help the Biden government fight the rising fuel prices, but the administration should be the one doing so. “has largely sought to criticize, and at times vilify, our industry,”Which is true 100 percent.
“These actions are not beneficial to meeting the challenges we face and are not what the American people deserve,” he wrote, according to The Daily Wire.
“We need clarity and consistency on policy matters ranging from leases and permits on federal lands, to the ability to permit and build critical infrastructure, to the proper role of regulation that considers both costs and benefits. Many of these elements are described in our industry’s recently released 10-point plan,”Wirth said.
Biden responded by mockingly calling Wirth “Wirth” “mildly sensitive.”
“I didn’t know they’d get their feelings hurt that quickly. We need to increase our refining capacities. This idea that they don’t have oil to drill and to bring up is simply not true.
“We ought to be able to work something out whereby they’re able to increase refining capacity and still not give up on transitioning to renewable energy,” Biden added. “They’re both within realm of possibility.”
