Doocy Confronts KJP: How Can US Be 'Barreling Toward Recession' If Economy Is 'Strong as Hell'?

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre struggled to answer questions on Tuesday from Fox News’s Peter Doocy about the administration’s priorities.

Given that inflation and economic issues are top concerns for Americans, Doocy wondered why President Biden is leaning into abortion.

“What is President Biden’s top domestic priority now?  Is it inflation or is it abortion?” he asked.  

Instead of offering a straightforward response, Jean-Pierre said both are important, clarifying that inflation is “his number-one economic priority.”  

Doocy didn’t let up.

 “You just said it’s ‘his number-one economic priority.’ We’ve heard the President say inflation is his top domestic priority, but now he’s saying, come next year, his first bill would be abortion related.  So is his number-one domestic priority abortion or is it inflation?”

The press secretary, in a roundabout answer, claimed Biden is “working on the economy every day,” which prompted another tough question from Doocy.

 “So you said he’s been working on the economy every day for 19 months.  Now Bloomberg economists are forecasting a 100 percent chance of a recession.  So how is it that we can be barreling towards a recession and the economy is, as the President says, ‘strong as hell’?

"What we are seeing right now is the job market is strong, the labor force is strong.  And that is not what we see usually before — before a recession," she replied. And a lot of that is because of the work that this President has done," Jean-Pierre continued.
