The decade's most triggering comedy
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodged a question on Monday about the administration potentially recommending that Americans have no more than two alcoholic drinks per week.
A reporter asked Jean-Pierre about recent reports that Dr. George Koob, who serves as President Joe Biden’s alcohol czar, may make the recommendation official.
“Does President Biden want to limit Americans to two beers a week?” the reporter asked.
Jean-Pierre said she had no idea what the reporter was talking about and once the reporter explained the situation she said that she would defer to the experts.
“Let me tell you what I’m not going to get involved in — in that in that question right there,” she responded. “I — I have no idea. I’ve not seen the data. I cannot speak to this. I will leave it to the experts and not weigh in.”
Biden admin "health experts" are considering a recommendation that Americans only drink TWO beers a week.
Doocy immediately asks KJP about it.
She hasn't held a presser in 14 days and was totally clueless about the news which was widely reported today.pic.twitter.com/kJkmNQA2GE

REPORTER: Does President Biden want to limit Americans to two beers a week?
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I — I — where is this coming from?
REPORTER: It’s coming —
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Maybe I did- — maybe I didn’t miss you so much. (Laughter.)
Where is this — where is this coming from?
REPORTER: All right, well —
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: (Laughs.)
REPORTER: Dr. George Koob, who is the director of the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, says the U.S. may soon follow Canada and recommend just two beers a week. How do you guys think that’s going to go over?
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Let me tell you what I’m not going to get involved in — in that in that question right there. I — I have no idea. I’ve not seen the data. I cannot speak to this. I will leave it to the experts and not weigh in.
REPORTER: So, if the experts say two beers a week —
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I — I —
REPORTER: — that’s okay with President Biden?
MS. JEAN-PIERRE: I will leave it to the experts. I’m just not going to comment on that.
