Dan Abrams dumps on KJP for spewing ‘gibberish’ in ‘train wreck’ interview on MSNBC

It has long been stated that White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is not very good at her job and would be lost if she couldn’t read answers from her daily briefing binder, yet she remains in her role as President Biden’s spokesperson because she checks a number of boxes as the first black gay woman to hold the job.

Add Dan Abrams to the list of those who believe Jean-Pierre is in over her head as he slammed the diversity hire on Monday’s “Dan Abrams Live” on NewsNation, pointing to a recent interview on “friendly” MSNBC to charge that Jean-Pierre was spewing “gibberish” while discussing the wide open southern border.

“Sadly, Jean-Pierre often ends up creating more damage than controlling it,” Abrams opined. “Now, it’s not all her fault. The White House has long had an incoherent message on border policy, continuing to enforce Title 42 while claiming they want to end it, criticizing other Trump-era immigration policies while reluctantly embracing them because they have no better option.”

“But what happens when you send a terrible messenger out with a tricky message? You get the kind of train wreck interview that took place on Friday night – an interview that reduced Jean-Pierre at times to a rambling mess,” he continued. “In fact, the press secretary’s first answer to an obvious question was almost incoherent.”

Abrams played a clip of the press secretary’s interview Friday with MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who asked about Biden’s border policies regarding family detention.

“There were reports that the White House was considering – or the Department Homeland Security was considering – reintroducing the practice of family detention,” Hayes said. “Is it true that that’s being considered?”

“So, what I want to be very clear here – and I’ve answered this question as you know, Chris, many times in the briefing room, and we as an administration have as well – we are not gonna certainly comment on rumors or conversations that are out there that people are reporting on,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Those are rumors. What we are going to promise is that we’re going to do this – we’re going to move forward with a, with this kind of systems, immigration system, that has been gutted, really, truly gutted by the last administration.”

“Moving forward” having resulted in more than 5 million illegal immigrants in 2 years, of course.

“Thank you for being so clear,” Abrams quipped. “We’re going to move forward — we’re going to do it in a way that moves us forward. It’s just gibberish.”

Unfortunately, that gibberish is good enough for the agenda-driven national media.
