President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of answers on how to solve the nation’s border crisis - and his top spokesperson appears to be just as lost as her boss.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre tripped like Biden trying to get on Air Force one Thursday when repeatedly pressed on the current crisis at the Southwest U.S. border, where thousands of migrants, many of them from Venezuela, are currently crossing the Rio Grande in endless lines and overwhelming border agents and nearby towns.
When asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy what Biden thinks about 10,000 illegal aliens having been apprehended in a single day, KJP floundered like a fish tossed on the dirt.
“What do you call it here at the White House when 10,000 people illegally cross the border in a single day?” Doocy asked, as Jean-Pierre immediately tried to pivot to blaming Republicans in Congress for the border flow - which even border patrol agents have blamed on the president’s open-border policies that have encouraged illegal immigration - before refusing to answer the question and demanding the briefing move on to the next reporter.

She tried to ignore the question and Doocy wasn't having any of it.

Jean-Pierre then played dumb and appeared to not understand another reporter when he asked, "How many people coming illegally into the United States is enough” for President Joe Biden.
”I don't—What do—Enough for what?" KJP responded.
