White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre became agitated during an interview on Monday and hung up the phone after she was asked a couple of fair questions about President Joe Biden.

KJP lost her cool during an interview with Charlotte’s WBT News Director Mark Garrison during a live radio interview after Garrison asked her about Biden’s mental fitness for office and the high costs of everyday products.

“When I told a number of people that I was talking to you today, it was interesting, though, they all said, ‘would you please just ask her, does the president have dementia?’ So before I move on from that, does he?” Garrison asked.

“That Mark, Mark, I can’t even believe you’re asking me this question. That is a credibly offensive question to ask,” she fired back.

“But, you know people ask it,” Garrison responded.

“Wait. Oh let me — no, no, no, no, no. You — Mark, you, you, you, you, you’re taking us down this rabbit hole. Let me, let me, let me be very clear about this,” KJP responded.

“For the past several years, the president’s physician has laid out very, in a comprehensive way, the president’s health,” she said. “This is a president — if you watch him every day, if you really pay attention to his record and what he has done, you will see exactly how focused he’s been on the American people, how historic his actions have been. And so I’m not even going to truly, truly, really, you know, take, take the premise of your question. I think it is incredibly insulting. And, and so we can, you know, we can move on to the next question.”

Garrison then mentioned the high costs of groceries and gas and asked how does Biden win votes when people are struggling to make ends meet.


“Look, the president understands. He grew up in a middle-class family, working class family in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He gets it,” she claimed. “He understands how difficult it is for Americans who are sitting around their kitchen table every month trying to figure out what they’re going to pay for. You have to remember, when the president walked into this administration, there were multiple crises happening. There was COVID, there was, the economy was in a tailspin because of the last administration, because of what the President Trump left us with.”

“Now you’re asking me about gas prices,” she continued. “The president took action on gas prices. Let’s not forget Russia’s invasion on Ukraine skyrocketed prices of gas. And because the president took action, we see we are in a different place than we were a year ago in gas prices. Eggs, milk, seafood products, all the important groceries, those costs have gone down because of what this president has been able to do. And, and with that, thank you so much, Mark. Have an amazing, amazing day.”

KJP then abruptly hung up the phone as the line went to a dial tone.

“Wow!” Garrison responded. “Wow!”
