CLEANING UP AFTER JOE: Karine Jean-Pierre Softens Joe's 'Armageddon' Comment

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.07.22

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre felt the need to clean up President Biden’s ‘Armageddon’ comment from Thursday night’s fundraiser speech; Joe said “[Putin was] not joking when he talks about the use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons,” adding “we have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis.”

“Russia’s talk of using nuclear weapons is irresponsible, and there’s no way to use them without unintended consequences. It cannot happen… We won’t be intimidated by Putin’s rhetoric,” Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One during President Joe Biden’s short flight to Hagerstown, Maryland, where he is to speak about the economy.

KJP also downplayed Joe’s talk of armageddon.

“We have not seen any reason to adjust our own nuclear posture, nor do we have indications they are preparing to use them, but Putin can de-escalate this at any time and there is no reason to escalate.”
