White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was mocked on X, the social platform formerly known as Twitter, after she posted a now deleted tweet where she said she ran for president.
On Tuesday, Jean-Pierre was made fun of by X users after she made a post where she said, “When I ran for President, I made a promise that I would leave no part of the country behind.”
The mocking began after the secretary’s post, with some claiming that she mistakenly logged into her X account instead of logging into President Biden’s to post the tweet.
For example, one user chimed in and stated that the accidental post: “is a perfect microcosm of the entire Biden presidency.”
Simon Ateba, Today News Africa’s Chief White House correspondent, also joined in on the jokes, saying: “Oh wow! They tweeted from the wrong account! @PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre has not run for President, at least to the best of my knowledge.”
This is not the first time that Jean-Pierre has been taunted on the internet.
In the midst of skyrocketing inflation in July of last year, Jean-Pierre made the absurd claim that “we are stronger economically than we have ever been.”
Days after Maui was struck by the most destructive United States wildfire in more than a century, Jean-Pierre mispronounced the names of the two Democrat senators from Hawaii and even misgendered one of them.
