    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to have trouble answering direct questions about the recent inflation numbers and what President Joe Biden's administration was doing to provide relief for the American people.

    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy hit Jean-Pierre with a series of questions during Monday's briefing, beginning by asking why - if Biden truly believed that combatting inflation was his primary domestic goal - Americans weren't seeing any real progress.

    WATCH:


    "Following up on something you said earlier, if President Biden's top domestic priority is inflation, why doesn't he have more to show for it?" Doocy asked.

    "So, the president understands, and we've talked about this many times, that inflation is an issue ... high cost ... cost is an issue for the American people, and so he's been very clear about making that his number one economic priority. And he has done the work," Jean-Pierre insisted.

    The press secretary went on to tout the Inflation Reduction Act, claiming that it was "going to lower costs" for seniors across the country by capping Medicare prescription costs and throwing in a dig at Republicans who had not voted for the measure. She then focused on Republicans, claiming that they would move to repeal the Inflation Reduction Act if they could and arguing that would only "make things worse."

    Doocy pushed back, asking, "But who exactly thinks the president is doing a good job on inflation? Because we've got a poll that finds he receives his lowest job ratings on inflation, net negative 38 points."

    "We understand that there are challenges that are in front of us here in this country, that is why the president has taken action to lower costs," Jean-Pierre argued, mentioning gas prices as an example despite the fact that gas prices have been on the rise again in recent days.

    WATCH:


    "Have the president's economic advisors told him the general consensus now is that the American Rescue Plan has contributed to inflation?" Doocy pressed once more.

    Jean-Pierre argued that Biden's policies were popular with the American people and deflected on the economic question, adding, "Look, Sec. Yellen, who is incredibly well respected as you know in the economic space, has spoken to this so I will leave her words speak to that, to the statement that you just made."

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

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.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.
