White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre was left stammering and nearly incoherent by a question from Fox news reporter Peter Doocy about rising grocery bills under the inflation-inducing policies of the Biden regime.
“You guys say that President Biden does not want to raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year,” Doocy said. “But there’s a new Fox poll that finds 83% of registered voters are noticing bills for groceries and everyday items increasing. So how is that any different than a new tax?”
