Joe Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki spent a good portion of Tuesday’s press conference trying to clean up her boss’s earlier clumsy remarks, including his walked-back claim that Democrats control “all three branches of government.”
In a rare press conference Tuesday, Biden had appeared to own up to a question about whether his administration bore any responsibility for the rampant inflation in America, where he replied: “We’re in power. That’s the first thing.”
…But then Biden quickly walked his statement back.
“And you’re justifiably right in that we control all three branches of government…Well, we don’t really,” he added.
