White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s staggering incompetence has been the proverbial gift that keeps on giving when it comes to moments deserving of mockery and her latest doozy about the mythical booming Biden economy drew a savage response on Twitter.
During Friday’s daily press briefing, the historic first black, lesbian immigrant to hold the position of top White House spokesperson flubbed her numbers when describing the booming job market under President Joe Biden, claiming that the U.S. has added an impressive “ten thousand million jobs” since he took office.
Citing the latest Labor Department monthly payroll report showing that 315,000 jobs were added in August, Jean-Pierre greatly exaggerated the figures since Biden’s inauguration.
“As you know, the good news is in August, the economy created 315,000 jobs, which is important,” she said. “We have created nearly ten thousand million jobs since President Biden took office, which is the fastest job growth in history, so you’re asking me ‘where’s the success?’ here it is…”

Twitter pounced on the latest enforced error by Biden’s spox who is clearly in way over her head.
“That’s 10 billion, more than the entire population of the world. Amazing job!,” tweeted businessman and tech researcher Dr. Eli David.

“Wowee that’s 10 billion jobs, that’s 30 jobs per American man, woman & child. Well done, Joe!” tweeted Australian political commentator Rita Panahi along with three clapping hands emojis.

“The sheer hubris and staggering amateurism of the Biden presidency is breathtaking,” wrote British journalist Nile Gardiner.

Ten thousand million… I think she misspoke and was referring to the amount of money we’ve sent to Ukraine.

Wow! Ten thousand million is a lot of jobs. That’s like 30 jobs for every American, which is great because we’re all going to need them in order to afford food and energy costs under this administration. 🤡

10 Thousand Million = 10 BILLION JOBS, Wow!
7.97 Billion people on Earth, that’s a lot of child and infant labor and who are the other 2.03 Billion that are working at least two jobs..?
And no, she gets ZERO passes for misspeaking, she has ONE job… to speak!~

Is she going to be one of those new auditors the IRS hires after her press days are over?

Coincidentally, and not at all related, they have also found 10,000 million newly registered Democrat voters.

The only jobs Biden created were for his family in foreign countries. There were quite a few of these, but not quite ten thousand million.
Maybe that’s the amount of money they made selling his influence.

What? They are making up their own definitions now for everything – making up their own numbers is just par for the course. Ten thousand million is a real number now – and if you don’t agree you’re a fascist. Or racist. Probably both.

KJP’s atrocious performance may leave some fondly recalling the good old days of Jen Psaki who despite her snarky dishonesty, was competent at her job.
