President Joe Biden’s press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continues to turn heads, but not in a good way. She was recently stumped when asked a simple question about the border crisis.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy has become a thorn in the press secretary’s side with his relevant questions that the rest of the mainstream media refuses to ask.
Peter Doocy deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom for dealing with Karine Jean-Pierre every day 🤷🏾♀️

During a press briefing, the subject of the White House’s policy on unvaccinated travelers entering the United States came up. Doocy used unvaccinated Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic as an example of the policy and highlighted how he was banned from the U.S. Open due to his vaccination status.
The reporter brought up the hypocrisy of letting hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants come through the southern border regardless of their vaccination status.
Jean-Pierre attempted to brush off the questioning by saying that it’s two different things, but Doocy pushed harder.
“But so how is it two different things? Somebody unvaccinated comes over on a plane. You say that’s not OK. Somebody walks into Texas or Arizona unvaccinated; they’re allowed to stay? Why?” Doocy asked.
“But that’s not how it works,” Jean-Pierre said.
“That’s what’s happening,” Doocy continued. “I know that’s not what you guys want to happen. But that is what is happening.”
“But that’s not, it’s not like somebody walks over and-” Jean-Pierre said, clearly flustered.
“That’s exactly what’s happening,” Doocy repeated.
Reporter: “Somebody unvaccinated [legally] comes over on a plane, you say that’s not okay. Somebody [illegally] walks into Texas or Arizona unvaccinated, they’re allowed to stay?”

Twitter erupted with users furious over Jean-Pierre’s’ out-of-touch remarks and inability to properly do her job.
According to former acting ICE director Tom Homan, over 2 million illegal immigrants have been counted crossing into the U.S. within the fiscal year of 2022. Those numbers are double that in 2021.
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd slammed the press secretary for her blatant lies and gave his first-hand experience.
“I watch these people walk across the border every single day. We see it. It’s disgusting what we’re seeing. And she knows exactly what’s happening. But she’s deflecting. She’s lying. She knows that the mainstream media isn’t going to cover this issue,” he told “Fox & Friends.”
As the border crisis worsens, the White House’s inability to publicly acknowledge its vaccination policies speaks volumes.
