Press Corps Confused by New Jet Lag Excuse for Biden’s Debate Showing


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced questions on Wednesday about President Joe Biden’s debate performance, which many deemed underwhelming. In response, Jean-Pierre attributed Biden’s performance to jet lag, a factor she initially failed to mention.

A reporter pointed out that the press corps had not been informed of the jet lag excuse previously, leading to confusion. Jean-Pierre acknowledged the oversight, saying “That is my bad. That is part of… definitely part of the explanation of what had occurred. I did know that. I did know that.”

Despite her earlier awareness of the jet lag factor, Jean-Pierre emphasized Biden’s cold as a primary contributor to his performance. “And that’s what I kind of leaned into, and talked about, but yes, his schedule did have something to do with it,” she said.

The press secretary’s explanation comes as Biden made a surprise appearance on a campaign staff call, reassuring fellow Democrats that he remains committed to the race despite his recent debate performance.
