White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodged a question on Monday about the administration potentially recommending that Americans have no more than two alcoholic drinks per week.

A reporter asked Jean-Pierre about recent reports that Dr. George Koob, who serves as President Joe Biden’s alcohol czar, may make the recommendation official.

“Does President Biden want to limit Americans to two beers a week?” the reporter asked.

Jean-Pierre said she had no idea what the reporter was talking about and once the reporter explained the situation she said that she would defer to the experts.

“Let me tell you what I’m not going to get involved in — in that in that question right there,” she responded.  “I — I have no idea. I’ve not seen the data. I cannot speak to this. I will leave it to the experts and not weigh in.”
