Karine Jean-Pierre Accidentally Reads Wrong Script During Live Presser

During a White House press conference on Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre experienced what may be her most embarrassing moment yet.

When a reporter asked about the Democratic Party primaries, Jean-Pierre looked through her folder to select a prompt, but proceeded to read the wrong script in response.

“Senator [Jeanne] Shaheen (D-NH) has a statement,” the reporter inquired. “She’s apparently not coming to the ball tonight. She’s upset that the president endorsed a proposal to put South Carolina in New Hampshire, and she says that New Hampshire is now vulnerable for her party. which does the president have a response to that?”

“So, look we honor we honor the Hatch Act,” KJP responded. “As I, as I mentioned many times before here as we are talking about a potential election in 2020 for presidential election. But looking backward, it is the ultimate irony, you know that the 2020 election was, was, was proven by the Trump administration’s homeland.”

Uh, what? That almost sounded like a response you’d expect from President Joe Biden.

“Oh, sorry, I think I got ahead of myself there,” she backtracked as the room’s deafening silence roared. “We take the law very seriously here. and so that’s the number one thing. And again, I want to be very careful because of 2024 and it places strict limits on what I can say, because of the Hatch Act about future elections and of course, political party processes. I know I was asked this question many times before about the DNC and so I’ve always referred folks to go to the DNC, but again, as a candidate in 2020…”

“And as we have heard the night of New Hampshire primary, Joe Biden was very clear, that to him, respecting our diversity as a nation and breaking down barriers for our people is a fundamental principle. and and so he believes that what Democrats and Office stand for, and he has upheld that principle as President,” Jean-Pierre continued, FINALLY answering the actual question at hand.

She added, “And so, again, you’ve seen him do that throughout his almost two years in administration, making sure that we see the diversity within his administration that is represented clearly across, across the country, and he wants to honor those values. And so that’s as far as I’m gonna get from here about the specific calendar. again, don’t wanna get into pol-pol-politics as it relates to political parties.”
