    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to admit that President Joe Biden counts everyday Americans among those who constitute the "extremist threat" he has repeatedly railed against.

    During Wednesday's press briefing, Jean-Pierre told RealClearPolitics' Philip Wegmann that Biden was concerned about an "extreme portion" of the country - and she said that was not limited to only those in positions of leadership within the Republican Party.

    WATCH:


    "When it comes to voters, how does the president differentiate between the ultra-MAGA folks who he sees as an extremist threat to democracy and the average GOP voter?" Wegmann asked.

    "So - can't talk about voters from here," Jean-Pierre replied, prompting a brief objection from Wegmann.

    "I just need to say that, just to be clear," Jean-Pierre waved him off. "I mean, the president has been really clear about the leadership, right, the MAGA Republicans in leadership. They're the ones who have the platform, they're the ones who - again, the extremist part of the Republican Party. They're the ones who folks listen to in their own party, and by inciting violence, by trying to take away - they're the ones who are the legislators who are trying to take away our rights, trying to take away our freedoms. And that's who the president is speaking to, right, he's being very targeted in that way in calling that out."

    She went on to say that Biden believed it was important to keep calling that out because he couldn't allow democracy to be "attacked" in that way.

    Wegmann pushed back, asking Jean-Pierre to clarify that Biden was not referring to the average Republican voter who was sitting at home, watching things unfold on cable news.

    "For folks sitting at home, when the president is talking about preserving the soul of the nation and those threats to democracy, he's not referring to those individuals, he's talking about Republican leadership?" Wegmann pressed.

    "Well, let me be very clear: it's not just Republican leadership," Jean-Pierre contradicted the position she'd taken just seconds earlier. "It's not just that blanket, right, he is talking about an extreme portion, an extreme part of the party. He's been very, very clear about that."

    Jean-Pierre went on to say that Biden didn't mean all Republicans, noting that he had recently singled out Republican Maryland Governor Larry Hogan as a conservative Republican who was "not in that bucket."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.

It is not only that Joe Biden is utterly corrupt, devoid of any shred of integrity, and dumber that a sack-full of dull hammers, but many if not most of the upper echelon of his staff, cabinet, and upper bureaucracy share most of those same attributes, as exemplified by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre .
