UFC commentator and star podcaster, Joe Rogan, blasted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in his latest podcast episode with guest and fellow comedian, Duncan Trussell.
“If you’re a lawyer, your job is not to make a judgment in your head. ‘I think maybe this guy’s lying and maybe he did it.’ Your judgment is to try to get your client off. And that’s why a lot of defense attorneys, man, that’s a slippery f***ing weird world to be in. Well, don’t you think it’s the same way in the government? If you’re that poor lady who’s the White House press secretary?” Rogan said. “It’s the f***ing worst job. It’s the worst job. You get all the hate of the president and none of the power. Like f***ing everybody hates you.”
Referring to the recent incident of Biden searching for deceased Republican congresswoman, Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana at a White House event, asking “Where’s Jackie?”
Instead of acknowledging Biden’s flaw, Jean-Pierre reacted to the incident by claiming that her boss was searching for the recently deceased congresswoman because she was on “top of mind,” and rejected concerns about his cognitive decline.
“’Top of mind. She was top of mind.’ I mean, it was really like the — it was like for what she had to work with, it was some incredible gaslighting,” Rogan said. “Top of mind’s a good one because it’s nonsense.”
Trussell agreed with Rogan and suggested that Jean-Pierre was unable to come up with an excuse like “top of mind” on her own and took outside help in order to defend her obviously-cognitively impaired boss.
“I think that exactly is probably what happens,” Rogan agreed. “There’s probably some consultation on what’s the best phrasing … So that’s her job, just like a defense attorney. It’s their job to try to get their client off. That’s her job.”
