A post that White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made on the social media site X, which used to be Twitter, but has since been removed, seems to have been intended for President Biden’s account.
“When I campaigned for President, I promised I wouldn’t leave any part of this country behind,” read part of Jean-Pierre’s tweet. The post was taken down, but not before being saved.
Critics made fun of Jean Pierre right away because of this mistake. Sean Spicer, who worked in the Trump government as White House press secretary, made a joke: “Do you recall when Biden beat KJP for the nomination? He had been kind enough to allow her to be the @PressSec.”
Alex Lorusso, who is in charge of making The Benny Report on Newsmax, also used X to make fun of the press secretary.
Simon Ateba, who covers the White House for Today News Africa, also had something to say. Notably, Ateba has sued Jean-Pierre to get back his press pass. The New York Post says he lost it shortly after “a variety of briefing-room disturbances.”
“Wow! ” They sent tweets from the wrong account!” Ateba typed. “@PressSec Karine Jean-At least as far as I know, Pierre hasn’t decided to run for President.”
“I’m still not sure what took place here. Did a summer worker send the tweet?” In a further post this week, he asked. “I really don’t have any idea. Also, @PressSec Karine Jean-Pierre looks like she’s worn out.”
Joe Concha, who writes a piece for the Messenger and also works for Fox News, also made fun of the tweet.
The mistake happened at the same time that former President Trump was charged with a new crime in Georgia. One of the charges against him, his staff, and his lawyers is “impersonating a public official or employee” (Georgia Penal Code 16-10-33). This is a big deal.
This week, Jean-Pierre was also criticized because she used male terms to talk about Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and said her name wrong.
