Recently, it has been difficult for White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to discuss the recession. She has been attempting to redefine it and support Biden’s assertion that a recession won’t occur.
Guess what, though? A recession has started. The GDP has decreased for the last two quarters in a row. But try telling that to the Biden regime.
But this time, Peter Doocy of Fox News wasn’t going to let KJP 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.”
Brian Deese, yesterday: "Two negative quarters of GDP growth is not the technical definition of recession.”

Well, let’s just see what Deese said this week compared to what he said back in 2008.
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.
Doocy: What changed?

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.
