Chaos in Briefing Room as Press Sec Jean-Pierre Rescues Fauci From COVID Questions

November 23, 2022

Chaos occurred in the White House briefing room on Tuesday when Press Propagandist Karine Jean-Pierre yelled at reporters in an attempt to rescue Dr. Anthony Fauci from answering questions about the origins of COVID-19 in his final appearance before retirement.

Fauci, the outgoing chief medical liar — er, ,adviser to the White House, spoke about Americans needing to get tested for the Chinese coronavirus before attending Thanksgiving gatherings, adding that “everybody” should be vaccinated and boosted.

As reporters began shouting questions, Jean-Pierre stepped in to reprimand them. “We have a process here. I’m not calling on people who yell and you’re being disrespectful to your colleagues, and you’re being disrespectful to our guests,” Jean-Pierre said while glaring at a reporter in one of the back rows.

“I will not call on you if you yell, and also, you’re taking time off the clock, because Dr. Fauci has to leave in a couple of minutes,” she added. “I’m done. I’m not getting into a back and forth with you.”

Today News Africa’s Simon Ateba argued that this was a press briefing and that Jean-Pierre “needs to call from people across the room.” He added, in defense of one reporter’s question, “She’s asking about the origin of COVID-19… Dr. Fauci is the best person to answer.”

Jean-Pierre responded by stating, “I hear your question…But we’re not doing it the way you want it… I’m done.”

By “not doing it the way you want,” she meant, “I’m allowing you to ask only questions that don’t cast doubt on our approved COVID narrative.”
