A radio host jabbed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for being fragile after she abruptly cut off an interview after just a few questions.

WBT radio News Director Mark Garrison asked questions about President Biden’s mental acuity and the economy in a clip posted to the X social media platform. Both topics are of extreme interest to American voters.

Jean-Pierre almost immediately took issue with the host’s questioning of whether or not Biden suffers from “dementia.”

“When I told a number of people I was talking to you today, it was interesting, they all said ‘Would you please just ask her, does the president have dementia?’” Garrison said.

Earlier this month, a poll showed a stunning 6 out of 10 American adults doubt the President has the mental acuity to run the country.

Karine Jean-Pierre clearly took issue with the question, expressing surprise and disgust that the topic would even be broached.

“I can’t even believe you are asking me this question. That is an incredibly offensive question to ask,” she immediately shot back.

Karine Jean-Pierre Can’t Deal

The White House Press Secretary handled the ‘dementia’ question in the same manner she often does – suggesting watching President Biden’s work is evidence that his mind is sound.

“If you really pay attention to his record and what he’s done, you will see exactly how focused he’s been on the American people,” she said. “How historic his actions have been.”

“I’m not even going to truly, truly take the premise of your question. It is incredibly insulting and we can move on to the next question.”

But, it seems she wasn’t ready to move on to the next question.

“Gas prices and grocery prices,” Garrison begins. “How does Mr. Biden win votes when people don’t have as much disposable income.”

Karine Jean-Pierre, like clockwork, blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for increasing prices and then falsely claimed the cost of gas and groceries was down. (They’re not. They’re down from the historic highs Biden ushered in, not from when he entered the Oval Office.)

And that’s when she seemingly had enough.

“And with that, thank you so much, Mark. Have an amazing, amazing day,” she said before cutting the interview off.

Hosts Left Stunned

After Karine Jean-Pierre bolted, one of the hosts involved simply repeated the word, “Wow.”

“You asked three, four incredibly salient, important questions that are all front of mind. Nothing out of bounds,” Garrison’s co-host says.

“I don’t understand the fragility of this person.”

The White House responded to the controversy by accusing the radio station of “manufacturing controversy.”

“As she often does when the President travels, Karine had multiple back-to-back interviews with radio stations who were each offered seven minutes,” a statement provided to the Daily Beast explains.

“Once the agreed-upon time was over, she called into the next interview so everyone could get their full time,” it continues. “This particular station chose not to air the full interview and instead artificially attached a sound effect that our phones do not make when calls end.”

Karine often bristles at questions involving Biden’s mental health. She even blasted former CNN host Don Lemon for daring to pose such a query.
