Bless her affirmative-action heart. Sometimes, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre just makes it too easy to ridicule her 80-year-old boss.
Newsmax White House correspondent James Rosen scored big on two questions at Tuesday’s press briefing, cutting to the chase to ask if President Biden is woke and managing to get the president’s spokesperson to declare that he was the “best communicator” the administration has — which may explain a lot.
“Is it the view of the president’s communication team that he is equally adept in all settings in terms of communications or are there some that play to greater strengths or some where he probably isn’t as strong?” Rosen asked.

“I will tell you this: The President is the best communicator that we have in the White House,” Jean-Pierre replied, with a straight face.
That’s a remarkable statement on the competence of the Biden White House given the president’s long history of stumbles, verbal gaffes, and flubbed lines. Even here, there’s a fair argument to be made that Vice President Kamala Harris is even worse.
Still, as one social media user noted, KJP pulled off an impressive “self-own” in naming Biden as their “best communicator”… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
Right? I don’t know which is worse, how sad it is she’d need to lie for Joe or that she’s actually telling the sad truth for once.

Does everyone in this admin walk around with cotton in their ears, so they can’t hear what they are saying to us?
I’d be embarrassed to spew these obvious ridiculous statements.

If there’s one thing that can be said about Joe Biden it’s that he manages to surround himself with people so horrible at their jobs, so bad at communicating, and so wildly stupid that, if only by comparison to them, they make him look good, https://t.co/7am1qAToyr

compared to Buttigieg (McKinsey speak), Kamala (Predictive Text speak), and the actual WH spokeswoman herself (*Loading Text*), this … this is a true statement.
Biden actually is the best communicator the WH has to offer. Oh God. https://t.co/2IhMk2OljC
