As Biden Misspeaks At Hunger Conference, Press Secretary Tries To Pacify The Situation

By 09/29/2022 11:00 AMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

It seems that President Biden is going senile after all.  On Wednesday during his address at a hunger conference, Biden was heard saying “Where’s Jackie?”, referring to deceased congresswoman Jackie Walorski. The White House press secretary later said the congresswoman had been “top of mind” for the president at the time.

Trying to pacify the trolls and the American public at large, Karine Jean-Pierre failed to acknowledge that Biden had misspoken during his remarks at the White House conference on hunger, nutrition, and health when he looked around the room for Walorski, the Indiana congresswoman who died in an August car crash.

Jean-Pierre faced repeated questioning during Wednesday’s White House press briefing about Biden’s flub, saying more than a dozen times that Walorski was “top of mind” for the president, who plans to meet with the congresswoman’s family at an event Friday when he signs a bill renaming a Veterans Affairs clinic in Indiana after her. She declined to say Biden had erred, nor did she issue an apology to the late lawmaker’s family.

“My answer is certainly not going to change,” she told reporters. “All of you may have views on how I’m answering it, but I’m answering the question to the way that he saw it and to the way that we see it.”

As it stands, the flub in question was made when Biden praised bipartisan lawmakers who worked on addressing childhood hunger, including Rep. Jim McGovern, Sen. Mike Braun, Sen. Cory Booker and Walorski, who was seen as a leader on the issue before her death. “Representative — Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? I think she wasn’t going to be here — to help make this a reality,” Biden said, completely forgetting about her demise.
