New White House press secretary blasted for botching answer to inflation question: ‘Excruciating to watch’

“How does raising taxes on corporations lower the cost of gas, the cost of a used car, the cost of food, for everyday Americans?” Doocy asked, to which Jean-Pierre responded with a rambling, incoherent statement consisting of imprecise Democrat talking points about taxing the rich and climate change.
