A spokesperson for Republican Florida Governor. Ron DeSantis claimed that White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre “was not set up to succeed.”
“I’m not going to defend her, she has blatantly lied about my boss from the White House briefing room,” Christina Pushaw posted on Twitter Thursday, “But, Karine was not set up to succeed. Biden offered her the job, as his approval is waning and the country faces many crises .”
I’m not going defend her because she has lying about my boss at the White House briefing rooms. Karine wasn’t set up for success. Biden offered her the job, even though his approval is waning and the country is facing multiple crises.

“She wasn’t set up to succeed because frankly she has a very difficult job cleaning up the messes Biden leaves in every public appearance, like his attack on SCOTUS at the NATO summit yesterday,” Pushaw told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Pushaw pointed out instances in which Jean-Pierre misled TheDCNF about DeSantis.
Pushaw pointed to statements Jean-Pierre made about Florida’s recently-passed parents rights bill being “targeted at LGBTQ kids,” telling TheDCNF the legislation was about “age appropriate sex education regardless of orientation.”

“She just lied 2 weeks ago when she stated that Florida ‘reversed course’ on child Covid vaccination — our position has never changed and has always been clear and consistent,” Pushaw said, referring to comments DeSantis made in June.
Jean-Pierre took over Jen Psaki’s position as White House Press Secretary in May. She was the first immigrant, black, and lesbian woman to hold that role. (RELATED: Karine Jean-Pierre Won’t Say Whether Biden Will Accept SCOTUS Ruling On Roe As ‘Legitimate’)
