Peter Doocy MASTERFULLY Humiliates Karine Jean-Pierre on Definition of Recession
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been struggling recently to talk about recession. She’s been trying to redefine it and back up Biden’s claim that we’re not going to enter a recession.
Well, guess what? We have entered a recession. We have now had two consecutive quarters in which the GDP has dropped. But you can’t tell the Biden regime that.
This time though, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy wasn’t letting KJP get off the hook so easily.
“If things are going so great, then why is it that WH officials are trying to redefine recession?” Peter Doocy asked KJP.
“No, we’re not redefining recession,” KJP retorted.
Doocy shot back: “If we all understand a recession to be two consecutive quarters of negative GPD growth in a row and you have the White House officials come up here to say no, no, no that’s not what a recession is…how is that not redefining recession?”
“Because that’s not the definition,” KJP said.
Doocy continued, “[Brian] Deese said in 2008…’economists have a definition…of a recession, which is two consecutive quarters of negative growth’ & yesterday he said, two negative quarters…is not the technical definition of a recession.”
KJP: “It is not.”
Doocy: “What changed?”
KJP: “It is not.”
Doocy: Deese said in 2008…'economists have a definition…of a recession, which is two consecutive quarters of negative growth' & yesterday he said, two negative quarters…is not the technical definition of a recession.
KJP: It is not.

Well, let’s just see what Deese said this week compared to what he said back in 2008.
Brian Deese, yesterday: "Two negative quarters of GDP growth is not the technical definition of recession.”

It sounds like they’re talking out of both sides of their mouth to me. They are liars through and through. They simply cannot own up to anything that makes them look bad, and you know what it’s doing? It’s making them look really bad. Instead of Joe Biden fooling himself into believing that he’s doing a good job and that everybody likes him, maybe he should actually listen to what people have to say and own up to his mistakes. It would go a long way.
