Karine Jean-Pierre compares Biden’s accomplishments to past presidents, and we can’t stop laughing

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre repeatedly defended President Joe Biden and made lofty claims about his so-called accomplishments.

While the Biden spokesperson is expected to sing the praises of her boss, Jean-Pierre’s eyebrow-raising compliments seemed more like next-level gaslighting during an appearance on CNN.

She claimed Biden is the “most accomplished”president and has accomplished more in three years in the Oval Office than other presidents have in two terms.

“You know, this president has done more in three years than any other president has done in two terms. And that is important here, Audie,” she told CNN anchor Audie Cornish.

“If you think about the legislation that deals with infrastructure, the roads and tunnels that are now are going to be really dealt with in a real way,” she continued, citing the CHIPS and Science Act.

“If you think about beating big Pharma and lowering prescription drugs, when you think about how seniors and others… are now paying 35 bucks, our seniors are going to be paying that when they were paying 200 bucks a month,” she added in her elevated claims. “That matters. That is going to go a long way.”

“And so as we head into the new year last year and out of the State of the Union, the president talked about finishing the job. And so the president’s going to continue to work on the economy. He’s going to continue on making sure that we’re lowering prescription drugs. Let’s not forget making Roe the law of the land as well,” she told Cornish.

She continued the cheerleading as the segment went on, burnishing Biden’s record to appear as anything but the disaster that it is.

“He still took action [on student debt] even though his hands were tied by the courts on moving forward with the plan that he originally wanted to do,” she stated. “The president has done more on climate change than any other president has been able to do. Those are the issues that young people care about and those are the issues that we’re going to continue to work towards and make sure that we deliver on the promise that the president made to young people, but to Americans across the country,” she declared.

“So I talked about what the president has done more actions. He’s taken more action than any other president in two terms, and he did that in three years. So, look, we have a lot ahead of us,” she concluded.

Few would argue that Biden has been idle in his three years in office, but a flurry of activity does not equal sound and effective policy.
