White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stepped into a hornet’s nest of mockery on Twitter Friday after stating that the U.S. has added “ten thousand million jobs” since President Biden took office.

Jean-Pierre made the gaffe during the Friday White House press briefing while she was talking about job growth for the month of August.

As Fox Business reported Thursday, the U.S. economy added 315,000 new jobs in August, making it is the “lowest monthly gain since April 2021.”

Regardless, Jean-Pierre called this “good news” and took the opportunity to tout the total job growth under Biden since his inauguration. “As you know, the good news is, in August the economy created 315,000 jobs, which is important. We have created nearly ten thousand million jobs since President Biden took office, which is the fastest job growth in history.”
