Fox News reporter Peter Doocy humiliated White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Wednesday during the daily briefing.
Jean-Pierre has the unfortunate job of covering for the White House while Joe Biden’s administration is turning America into a contracting economy headed towards a surefire recession after today marks two straight quarters with negative Growth Domestic Product (GDP).
The technical definition of a recession is just that – two straight quarters with a negative GDP – but the White House has attempted to change that definition in recent months.
Peter Doocy, the toughest reporter for Biden’s press room thus far, asked Jean-Pierre if America is headed towards a recession, basing his reasoning on the technical definition that CURRENT White House official Brian Deese used in 2008 as a member of Obama’s team.
Doocy: If things are going so great, then why is it that WH officials are trying to redefine recession?
KJP: No, we're not redefining [it].
Doocy: "If we all understand [it] to be 2 consecutive quarters…& you have WH…say…that's not…how is that not redefining [it]? pic.twitter.com/FrQXLQIoJg
