The decade's most triggering comedy
It should be a simple “yes” or “no” question: Did the cocaine found in the White House belong to a Biden family member?
Yet for some reason, the White House has chosen to lecture any journalist who inquires about from whence it came instead of being transparent about the nose candy. On Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre (KJP) went off on a tangent about the so-called irresponsibility of even asking if the bag belong to the Bidens.
“Can you just say once and for all whether or not the cocaine belonged to the Biden family?” a reporter asked KJP, while mentioning that White House spokesman Andrew Bates tried using the Hatch Act just a day before to wiggle out of that question.
First, KJP sermonized to the reporter as to why she should know better about Bates’s usage of the Hatch Act. It didn’t make much sense, but it served as a useful filibuster before Jean-Pierre dove into her real answer.
“We’ve answered this question — litigated this question for the last two days, exhaustively. Um, you know, there has been some irresponsible reporting about the family, and uh, so I gotta call that out here,” she said (emphasis added). “And, I have been very clear. I was clear two days ago when talking about this … the Biden family was not here. They were not here. They were at Camp David. They were not here Friday. They were not here Saturday. They were not here Sunday, they were not even here Monday. They came back on Tuesday. And so to ask that question is actually incredibly irresponsible.”

First, when did we start referring to President Joe Biden and his family as “The Family?” Who are they? The Mafia?
Second, that was not a direct answer. Just because they weren’t there over the weekend doesn’t mean that it didn’t belong to a family member. It was reportedly found in a cubby. It’s conceivable that it could have been there for a while.
Third, did you notice that was KJP’s most coherent response ever? It was indirect, but it was still coherent. She came prepared on Friday — didn’t even look at her notes.
That should clue us all in that the White House is taking this issue seriously — which only causes more speculation that it came from somebody who would cause embarrassment for the Biden administration.
