White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on Friday held a press gaggle in Hiroshima, Japan.
Brandon is currently in Japan participating in the 2023 G7 Summit.
80-year-old Brandon looked confused as he greeted the world leaders in Japan on Friday.
At one point Brandon slipped on concrete steps and almost fell.
Reporters on Friday peppered Jake Sullivan and Karine Jean-Pierre with questions about the looming default.
Debt ceiling talks are on hold over “unreasonable” White House demands as a default looms.
Brandon waited 97 days to engage in debt ceiling talks with House Speaker McCarthy and other congressional leaders.
We are days away from the US government defaulting and Brandon refuses to budge after House Republicans passed a resolution.
Brandon refuses to negotiate with McCarthy.
KJP and Jake Sullivan repeated old, tired talking points and insisted Brandon is taking the debt ceiling negotiations seriously.
Meanwhile Brandon has not called into any of the debt ceiling meetings taking place on The Hill.
Brandon didn’t even deputize Kamala Harris to lead the negotiations (she’s too stupid anyway).
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Karine Jean-Pierre what Brandon has been doing the last several hours since he has yet to be briefed on the debt ceiling meetings that took place back in DC.
“What was [Brandon] doing for the last several hours while they were in these meetings?” Doocy asked.
“They were having conversations, right? They were on the Hill,” KJP said.
“Couldn’t he call in?” Doocy asked.
Karine Jean-Pierre became visibly irritated: “Look, Peter…”
DOOCY: “What was [Brandon] doing for the last several hours while they were in these meetings?”
JEAN-PIERRE: “They were having conversations, right? They were on the Hill.”
DOOCY: “Couldn’t he call in?”
JEAN-PIERRE: *blank stare* “Look, Peter.” pic.twitter.com/mOMieHJS4R
