Karine Jean-Pierre Slammed for Defending 'Bidenomics'


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is facing backlash for defending “Bidenomics.”

On Monday she stated during a White House press conference, “What we’ve seen is that wages have gotten stronger, have increased!”

Watch the video below:

This was in response to Twitter adding a community note to a tweet President Joe Biden sent out on Sunday which claimed that, “Right now, real wages for the average American worker is higher than it was before the pandemic, with lower wage workers seeing the largest gains.”

The note said, “The tweet’s claim about real wages contains a factual error.”

It argued that pre-lockdown wages were $11.15, adjusted for inflation, but current wages sit at $11.05. 

Has "Bidenomics" helped you?

Along with Twitter’s fact-check, users also slammed Jean-Pierre’s response.

RNC Research posted a clip of her stating, “Everything that you are seeing with our economy being stronger, wages going up … is because of Bidenomics!”

They wrote, “Prices are up 16.6% and real wages are down 3% since Biden took office.”

A retired public safety professional stated, “If they keep telling the lie, they’ll believe it.”

Humanitarian and filmmaker, Melonie tweeted, “In the first half of 2023, 340 U.S. firms filed for bankruptcy, setting a new 13-year high, per CNBC.”

Another user shared an inflation chart and noted, “On top of inflation!!”

A Twitter user asked, “Why do reporters even bother to attend her briefings?”

Missouri native Ron Wilson then posted a meme that listed a different meaning of “Bidenomics.”

This listed, “Massive Overspending,” “Collapsing Retirement Funds,” “Bank Failures,” and “High Interest Rates,” as key components of what he believes makes up Bidenomics.
