During Monday's briefing, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy engaged in a pointed exchange with Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre. He questioned her about her stance on the American public's perception of the economy's improvement.
Doocy initiated the conversation with a somewhat ironic inquiry, asking if families had mentioned, during their Thanksgiving gatherings, any noticeable reductions in expenses.

Responding to Jean-Pierre's assertion that the cost of several important items had dropped, Doocy inquired, “So, is it your sense that when people are home for Thanksgiving, catching up with their family members, they were saying to each other, ‘Can you believe how much more affordable things have gotten?'”
“So, honestly, I wouldn’t … I hear the question, but I want to make sure this is very clear. We take that very seriously. We take what families — the decisions that they make at their kitchen table, whether it’s at whether it’s during Thanksgiving or whether it is every month, as they’re trying to make hard decisions about how they move forward with taking care of their family — we take that very seriously,” Jean-Pierre replied. “It’s not a joke to us, it is important to us.”
She continued to echo the frequently stated message of the Biden administration, emphasizing that regardless of the sentiments of American families, “The fact is the data shows that the economy is improving. The data shows that households remain in a strong financial position.”
“But why do you think it is that when you say the economy is improving and President Biden says the economy is improving, that a majority of Americans outside of this building are not buying it?” Doocy questioned again.
“It’s going to take some time, but it does not take away how we have seen the economy getting back on its feet. We actually had to fix the problem that we saw, that the last administration left us,” she said.
