    Jean-Pierre refused to say Biden was wrong to ask about late congresswoman Jackie Walorski

    “Where’s Jackie?” Said President Joe Biden who seemed to forget that the congresswoman died last month in a car accident. The strange moment occurred during the “Hunger, food and health” conference, of which Jackie Walorski was one of its main promoters.

    Just as the 79-year-old president was thanking the bipartisan group of lawmakers who lobbied the White House to host the event, he mentioned New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, Massachusetts Democratic Representative Jim McGovern, Indiana Republican Sen. , Mike Braun, and the late Indiana Republican, Jackie Walorski.

    “Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie? I think she would be here.” said the president.

    the republican lost his life on August 3 in a car accident in which two of its employees also perished.

    Biden’s behavior caught the attention of the media, who did not stop question the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, about what happened.

    “The president named the congressional champions on this issue and recognized their incredible work,” argued Jean-Pierre. “I don’t think it’s that unusual to have someone on your mindespecially when there is a big event.”

    The spokeswoman pointed out that the president would receive Walorski’s family at the White House on Friday to sign a bill in his honor.

    A reporter commented that it was confusing that the president thought that Walorski was alive if she was on his mind, Jean-Pierre said, “I don’t find it confusing.”

    “I mean, I think many people can talk, sometimes when you have someone in mind, they are the most important thing. Exactly that,” she pointed out.

    Upon learning of Walorski’s death, the president released a statement saying he and the first lady were “shocked and saddened” by the news.
