WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden sought out deceased Rep. Jackie Walorski on Wednesday during remarks at a hunger conference, saying “Where’s Jackie?" The White House press secretary later said the congresswoman had been “top of mind” for the president at the time.
Karine Jean-Pierre did not 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.
Biden, in his remarks. 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.
“Where’s Jackie?” Biden said, suggesting he expected her to be there.
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.”
Here she is Joe!!
He Biden has lost it and if Republicans win a majority this November they are going to have to make a choice between dumb and dumber if they remove him!
They will not remove Biden! Too many Rhinos. Dems may remove him so they can pick the next POTUS, they would have done so already if it weren't for Kamala......even the commies don't want her! If they figure out how to replace Kamala 1st, then they will remove him
In 2024.....Hopefully TRUMP will run again, then you don't have to choose between dumb and dumber! People hate him because the commie media TOLD them they should. BUT no one can say with a straight face that he is dumb!
That’s been my new saying all day yesterday and today, people I run into say to me, how you doing, I answer back, great, where’s Jackie? Jackie suppose to be here. Lol. You just can’t make this up stuff up some of the things he says. I really always wondered what a puppet president would look and act like, and now I know.
Reminds me of an episode of Andy Griffin where Andy went out of town and Barney was in charge.
Truly sad for the entire country
It would be funny at a board meting at a small company but for the president
Is a disgrace for all of us
Sad part the meda backs him to the ppint of making up bs to protect him and the hate driven home every day about Trump at least to me is like Hitler blaming a group as all the country' problems focusing all he toward them and away firm his evel
‘Top of Mind’ for Biden is akin to the top of Death Valley.
