The decade's most triggering comedy
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre accidentally published a post on Tuesday afternoon on her official government X account that apparently was meant to be published on President Joe Biden’s account official government account.
The now-deleted post said: “Investing in America means investing in ALL of America. When I ran for President, I made a promise that I would leave no part of the country behind.”

“Oh wow! They tweeted from the wrong account!” responded Today News Africa White House correspondent Simon Ateba. “@PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre has not run for President, at least to the best of my knowledge.”
Reporter Stephanie Myers wrote: “White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted and then deleted this. Looks like she forgot to switch to the @POTUS account.”
Fox News contributor Joe Concha responded: “Welp. I guess we know who’s been writing President Biden’s tweets for him. (A) Karine Jean-Pierre (not good)… (B) White House intern (also not good)… (C) The person who left cocaine at the White House (*really* not good).”
Jean-Pierre made news waves earlier this week when she mispronounced the names of both of Hawaii’s Democratic senators — Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Brian Schatz (D-HI) — and called Hirono a “he,” which comes as the state deals with the deadliest fire in the U.S. in over 100 years.
“Senator Harino [sic], who I said the president spoke to just last night, he thanked the president for the immediate support of federal agencies have delivered for residents of Hawaii,” Jean-Pierre said, adding, “and so does, has, so has Senator Shorts, Sharts — Schatz.”
