Jen Psaki certainly had impeccable timing when she decided to grab a parachute and bail out of an administration that’s spiraling towards the ground (and unfortunately taking the economy with it unless somebody does something quick), but her replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, is on the job and spinning as fast as possible. During yesterday’s White House briefing, Jean-Pierre stumbled several times while trying to provide flimsy excuses for the baby formula shortage, gas prices and inflation, which she claimed is not a crisis but has made it a “difficult time.”
Here’s another clip from that same briefing that’s very telling. Watch Jean-Pierre claim the Biden economic plan is working just fine “as we see it”:

Taking the claim that Biden’s economic plan is working as the White House sees it could lead us to draw a certain conclusion:
If their plan is working, as they say, one can only wonder what the intended outcome is.

The White House might “see it,” but nobody else does:
I don’t think much of anything is working for a president with a 36% approval rating

Their plan all along was to wreck the economy, so yeah. It's working.

Biden’s economic plan might be “working” as the White House sees it, but this is what almost everybody else sees:

That about sums up this entire administration.
