WH Official Gives Interview Amid Biden Stop

Recently, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre interviewed Mark Garrison from 99.3 WBT, a radio station out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

It is being reported that the interview took place shortly before Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ campaign trip to the purple state.

As the interview went on, Garrison asked Jean-Pierre about Biden’s cognitive ability and if he was suffering from dementia. She did not like that question and said it was “incredibly offensive” and demanded Garrison move on. However, when he asked his next question about Americans struggling financially, she hung up the phone.

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

“Mark, I can’t even believe you’re asking me this question. That is an incredibly offensive question to ask,” Jean-Pierre responded.

“For the past several years, the president’s physician has laid out, in a very comprehensive way, the president’s health,” Jean-Pierre continued. “This is a president that if you watch him everyday, 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. So I am not going to truly, really take the premise of your question. I think it is incredibly offensive. So we can move on to the next question?”

Garrison obliged and asked how Biden planned to win votes who have since lost their “disposable income” due to the economy.

“Now you’re asking me about gas prices,” she continued. “The president took actions on gas prices, let’s not forget, Russia’s invasion on Ukraine skyrocketed prices on gas, and because the president took action we are in a different place than we were a year ago on gas prices.”

“Eggs, milk, seafood products, all the important groceries, those prices have gone down because of what this president has been able to do. And with that, thank you so much Mark. Have an amazing, amazing day,” Jean-Pierre concluded, followed by the sound of a dial tone.

The hosts are heard reacting to the clip played on the radio station while Garrison remarks, “And she hung up.”
