WATCH: Karine Jean-Pierre stutters through word salad after reporter calls out Joe Biden for falsely claiming inflation was 9% when he took office | The Gateway expert

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed Trump and the Covid pandemic when a reporter asked why Joe Biden lied about 9% inflation when he took office in January 2021.

Biden has falsely claimed that inflation was 9% when he took office. In January 2021 this was 1.4%.

Biden's lie was so blatant that the Washington Post gave him four Pinocchios.

Fox News Business reporter Ed Lawrence asked Karine Jean-Pierre why Joe Biden continues to lie about inflation.

KJP absurdly claimed that the inflation crisis is a result of the Covid pandemic and supply chain problems.

“I want to ask you how the president talks about inflation. So twice in the last two weeks the president said inflation was at nine percent when he took office. Is the president misleading the Americans about this? Or is that the case – but doesn't he realize that inflation was 1.4 percent when he came to power?”

Karine Jean-Pierre stuttered through a word salad.

“So, you know – and – and thank you for the question because I know this – we got a lot of responses to this yesterday and look, I – what the president was – the point he made – uh – is that the factors that caused inflation were already in place when he came in – in government – ​​when he took office. Let's – as you know, the pandemic has caused inflation around the world – uh – uh – by disrupting our economy and disrupting our supply chains – as you know, we've had to move quickly in addressing the supply chain. He put together a task force. You saw the president do that,” said Karine Jean-Pierre.

Ed Lawrence wasn't having it and pushed back.

“But COVID started in March 2020. So these factors were in place for about a year before the president took office,” he said.

Biden's tax and spending policies led to the inflation crisis, but KJP blamed everyone and everything else.

“Look, I mean – look, the pandemic was happening, right? That caused inflation. That happened. The supply chain was – was – breaking our economy. That happened and it wasn't just us. It wasn't just us. It was global,” said Karine Jean-Pierre.
