Karine Jean-Pierre ripped for 'categorically false' claim Biden visited the border: 'Caught in lies daily'

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was called out as a liar by Twitter users Wednesday after she claimed that President Biden has visited the southern border.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy brought up the subject during the White House press briefing, asking Jean-Pierre whether Biden would answer House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s, R-Calif., invitation to visit the southern border with him.

"We know the president’s never been down to the border. The possible next speaker says that he wants [Biden] to go with him. So, is he going to?" Doocy asked.

"He’s been there. He’s been to the border. And since he took office…" Jean-Pierre said.

Despite Doocy asking when exactly Biden visited the border, Jean-Pierre ignored the question and instead moved on to attack Republicans for their unwillingness to work with the president. Read more and see video here.

The Court of Appeals ruled against the Biden Administration’s request to reinstate the student loan bailout.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit rejected President Joe Biden’s $400 billion student loan forgiveness program which he appealed following a judge’s ruling to put it on pause. 

This is the latest setback for Biden’s hefty plan. 

This comes after the federal government requested to temporarily reverse a lower court order that blocked the rollout of the plan.

The plan will stay paused while the administration appeals an order from a Texas judge that declared the debt relief proposal unlawful after a three-judge panel in New Orleans ruled against the program. 

In response, the Biden Administration has already extended the student debt loan payment until June 30, 2023. Read more here.
