    by Just the News Staff   The White House on Wednesday afternoon offered its explanation for President Biden earlier in the day called out for a dead congresswoman at an executive conference. Biden at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition & Health appeared to be searching the crowd for the late Rep. Jackie Walorski, the Indiana representative who died last month in a vehicle accident. Asked about the mistake at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the president was “acknowledging [Walorski’s] incredible work” in bringing the conference to fruition before her death. “He had already planned to welcome the congresswoman’s family to the White House on Friday,” Jean-Pierre said, arguing that Walorski was “at top of mind for the president” during the conference. Pressed on Biden’s apparent confusion at not seeing Walorski at the event, Jean-Pierre responded: “I just explained, she was on top of mind.” Reporter: "What happened when Biden said where is Jackie Walorski?" Jean-Pierre: "The president was acknowledging her incredible work." Reporter: "He said Jackie, Jackie, where is Jackie?" Jean-Pierre:...
    The White House press briefing on Wednesday got chaotic when Karine Jean-Pierre was tasked with explaining a gaffe from President Joe Biden earlier in the day when he asked where a deceased congresswoman was. During a White House conference, Biden was thanking members of Congress when he asked, Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) was. Immediate confusion ensued as Walorski died in a car accident last month. The viral moment came up at the press briefing, and things got awkward after CBS reporter Steven Portnoy asked for a copy of the prepared remarks for Biden as Jean-Pierre tried explaining away the president’s seeming confusion. When the topic was first brought up, Jean-Pierre claimed Biden was simply “acknowledging” the “incredible work” of Walorski, noting her family is headed to the White House on Friday. She explained that Walorski was simply “top of mind” for Biden. Portnoy circled back to the explanation, attempting to dig deeper, suggesting Biden may have read something he didn’t understand on his teleprompter. “I mean, you’re jumping to a lot of conclusions,” Jean-Pierre said. After some back and forth, Portnoy...
    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre did not have a straight answer on Monday for whether or not U.S. cities are 'safe' amid a spike in crime over the past few years.  'The crime is complicated and multi-faceted,' the press secretary said when asked about the safety of U.S. cities.   '[Biden] inherited a rising crime rate from the previous administration,' Jean-Pierre added. She noted that Republicans voted against the American Rescue Plan, which included $300 billion for state and local governments and could be used to hire more police officers.  'So back to the original question, does President Biden's think America's big cities are safe?' Fox News' Peter Doocy asked the press secretary. 'It's not a yes or no question,' she replied.  'It is very much a question of, what is he done?,' Jean-Pierre continued. 'What matters is that we have the funding and we have done the work, put the policy forward.' White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre did not have a straight answer on Monday for whether or not U.S. cities are 'safe' amid a spike in crime...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Peter Doocy clashed after the Fox News reporters posted a simple question regarding crime in America. White House press briefings rarely have a dull moment between Doocy and Jean-Pierre and Monday was no different. “Does President Biden think America’s biggest cities are safe?” Doocy asked point blank. Jean-Pierre asked Doocy to elaborate, and the two ended up discussing a New York Times report on national crime rates. The report shows a drop in the murder rate in 2022, though the murder rate is still 30 percent above its level from 2019. Doocy noted thefts and robberies in major cities increased by about 20 percent in the first half of 2022. While Doocy noted several major crimes that have taken place in cities in recent months, Jean-Pierre retorted by quoting the Times analysis that “crime is complicated and multifaceted,” and that law enforcement cannot easily deal with factors like social discord and inflation driving crime up. “This is a president who has secured historic funding to make sure law enforcement has what it needs,...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre lost her cool with Fox reporter Jacqui Heinrich during Friday’s press briefing regarding DHS help in responding to the migrant crisis. Heinrich specifically asked about a proposed DHS plan that was turned down by the White House, to mitigate the border crisis by rerouting migrants across the country including the northern border with Canada. “Why would the president turn down a DHS plan then to move migrants to the Northern border, to relieve some of the crowding at the Southern border?” Heinrich asked. “I just — I was just asked about this question. That’s been already asked and answered. I literally just answered that question,” Jean-Pierre replied. “I didn’t understand what your answer was. Did he turn down a plan or –” Heinrich pressed. “When this is over, you can look at the transcript and take a look,” Jean-Pierre replied. “So you won’t clarify?” Heinrich asked. “Literally, Jackie, I just answered that question,” Jean-Pierre said. Jean-Pierre continued on to highlight the Republicans who had been “playing games” and using peoples lives as “political pawns,”...
    "In the last week or so, we've heard the president calling elected Republicans a threat to the country. Does he think MAGA Republicans are more of a threat to the country than people DHS says may pose a risk to national security and the safety of local communities?" Doocy asked. 09/07/22: Press Briefing by Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre youtu.be Jean-Pierre's response — or lack thereof — was telling. Not only did she not answer Doocy's question, but she instead disputed the DHS OIG report and referred Doocy to question the DHS instead. "DHS has disputed this report," Jean-Pierre responded. "And it said it didn't take into account the key steps that we have taken as a U.S. government, the rigorous, multi-layered screening and vetting process that we take as a government, that was not part of the report." "Again, this report is not accurate. I know that our team has spoken to your team about this, and the DHS has provided a comment saying just that," she added. "So again, I refer you to DHS."Anything else?Exactly as...
    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre will no longer provide examples of so-called "Make America Great Again" Republicans from the podium after naming and shaming Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) last week. Jean-Pierre declined to go into specifics when she was asked whether President Joe Biden considered Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a part of what Democrats consider to be a group threatening democracy. OBAMA RETURNS TO WHITE HOUSE, WHERE HE'S UPSTAGED BIDEN BEFORE "When you go back to the speech, his speech last Thursday, people have talked about if it was divisive, it wasn't divisive," she said Wednesday. "The way that we saw this speech is that he was talking to the majority of the country who agree that we have to protect our democracy, who agree that we have to protect our freedoms." Jean-Pierre repeated that MAGA Republicans comprise "a minority, a small group" who have "extreme" perspectives and who threaten the "core value" of "who we are as a country." "He also asked for people to come together," she...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shut down CNN White House Correspondent Jeremy Diamond after he repeatedly asked what “concrete actions” President Joe Biden will take against the MAGA “threat to democracy.” At Friday’s press briefing, Jean-Pierre fielded a number of questions about Biden’s speech entitled “The Continued Battle for the Soul of the Nation,” which was largely a rebuke of former President Donald Trump and those who support the insurrection that culminated in the attack on the Capitol on January 6. In the speech, Biden urged Americans to unite against those “MAGA forces,” and to use their “voices” and votes to stand against them. Diamond wanted to know what “concrete actions” the president would take in addition to those entreaties — and took four shots at getting an answer: MR. DIAMOND: Hey, Karine, the President last night argued very forcefully that democracy is under assault. But what kind of concrete actions does he actually plan to take, given that he described this essentially as a fairly existential threat to the American republic? MS. JEAN-PIERRE: So, as — as you also heard from the...
    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted Monday that migrants weren't 'walking' into the United States in a prickly back-and-forth with Fox News Channel's Peter Doocy.  Doocy asked Jean-Pierre why unvaccinated migrants can come into the U.S. and stay, while Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic is banned from playing stateside due to his unvaccinated status.  'It's not that simple,' Jean-Pierre said. 'It's not just that people are walking across the border. We have a plan in place. This is not like switching the lights on. ​T​his is going to take a process. We are fixing a broken system that was actually left by the last administration.' White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted Monday that migrants weren't 'walking' into the United States in a prickly back-and-forth with Fox News Channel's Peter Doocy
    (CNN)The White House struggled for a second straight day to answer questions about President Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness plan, simultaneously claiming that the President waited for the plan to be "fiscally balanced" before unveiling it and that there was no way to know how much the plan would cost. At a Thursday press briefing, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continued to insist that the plan to cancel thousands of dollars in federal student loan debt for millions of Americans would "be fully paid for because of the because of the work that this President has done with the economy." Asked specifically if the administration had a better idea about the total price tag for the program, Jean-Pierre began her answer by saying "the President's record on fiscal responsibility is second to none" before detailing a list of his economic accomplishments. But she never gave an estimate on how much the plan could cost. "All of this when it comes to cost will also depend on how many of the loans canceled were actually expected to be repaid, it...
    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre why Republicans are “more jazzed” than President Joe Biden about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Pelosi visited Taiwan on Tuesday despite threats from China. She reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to Taiwan. During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, Doocy asked, “How come Republicans seem more jazzed about Speaker Pelosi’s trip than the president?” Jean-Pierre appeared to mock Doocy’s question. “You have to ask Republicans … Jazz? Do they have jazz hands, Peter?” she replied. “Do I have jazz hands?” asked Doocy. “Do they?” asked Jean-Pierre. “You said jazz!” “We can have our Hill team check,” quipped Doocy. Doocy read statements from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) expressing support for Pelosi’s trip. “Is President Biden worried about hurting [Chinese President] Xi [Jinping’s] feelings?” asked Doocy. Jean-Pierre answered Doocy’s question seriously. “We’ve been very clear,” she said. “We’ve been very clear for, gosh, the past week or so that the Speaker has the right to go to...
    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Monday defended President Joe Biden's meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his controversial fist bump with the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia. She said she wasn't in the meeting with MBS, the crown prince is known by his intials, but said she believed the president when he said he raised the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. A Saudi official claimed he didn't hear Biden bring up the matter during the private conversation. 'I trust the president,' Jean-Pierre said. 'He made those comments, as you heard directly from him during during the press conference, and he said at the top of the meeting, he mentioned Jamal Khashoggi.' She also pointed out Biden was asked about the Saudi denial and confirmed he brought up Khashoggi.  'The president was asked this question, and he spoke to it directly. And I do believe that, you know, if, if anyone telling you differently about what the president said they weren't listening to the president himself, when he was asked that question,' she said. 'He was...
    On the heels of a much-talked about New York Times article in which some Democrats expressed fear about President Joe Biden’s potential reelection bid in 2024, CNN’s Don Lemon put the White House press secretary on the spot by asking about the commander in chief’s “stamina.” In an interview on Monday’s Don Lemon Tonight, the host asked chief White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre about whether Biden has the conditioning for a second term. “Does the president have the stamina physically and mentally, do you think, to continue on even after 2024?” Lemon asked. Jean-Pierre was taken aback by the query. “Don, you’re asking me this question?!” Jean-Pierre said, in mock frustration. “Oh my gosh!” The press secretary went on to tout the president’s stamina, and dismiss the concerns raised by Democrats in the Times article. “He’s the president of the United States, I can’t even keep up with him,” she said. “We just got back from New Mexico, we just got back from California. That is not a question that we should be even asking. Just look at the work...
    The White House press secretary on Monday night laughed off the question of whether Joe Biden had the 'physical and mental stamina' to run for a second term, describing an article at the weekend questioning his fitness as 'malicious'. The 79-year-old president has insisted he intends to run again in 2024, and would be 82 on inauguration day if he wins. He has faced a barrage of questions about his advancing years - most recently on Sunday, when multiple Democrat sources told The New York Times they were concerned. On Saturday, he was asked whether he would visit Saudi Arabia, and replied that he had not yet decided - only to say, 20 seconds later, why he was making the trip. Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House spokesperson, gasped in horror when asked by CNN's Don Lemon about Biden's fitness for office after 2024. 'Don, you're asking me this question!' she said, aghast. 'Oh my gosh. He's the president of the United States!' Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, was shocked to be asked whether Joe Biden was physically and...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared flummoxed again Monday by the baby formula crisis as she was unable to provide an update on what the administration was doing to fix it. Jean-Pierre paused awkwardly when a reporter asked her about the crisis. “Yeah, let me see if I have anything new for you on that because I think it’s been a couple of days since I was asked that question,” she said. Jean-Pierre awkwardly flipped through her briefing binder for several seconds before ultimately giving up. “I don’t have anything new,” she finally replied. “I know we made some announcements last week, I just don’t have them in front of me.” She urged the reporter who asked the question to talk to her after the briefing for any updates. “We’ll talk through the things we’ve been able to do and the most recent activities that we’ve done,” she said. The reporter asked Jean-Pierre if President Joe Biden had confidence in the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) ability to handle the crisis and also keep baby formula safe “If you’re asking...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tore into the National Rifle Association when she was asked if President Joe Biden thinks it’s appropriate for the group to hold a convention just days after the Uvalde massacre. The NRA is set to hold its annual meeting in Houston Friday in the shadow of the massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults. Former President Donald Trump has said he will attend, while Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has announced he will appear via taped message while he travels to Uvalde to hold a press conference. At Thursday’s press briefing, Associated Press White House correspondent Darlene Superville asked for the president’s view on the gathering, and Jean-Pierre widened her answer into a denunciation of the entire “shameful” organization: MS. SUPERVILLE: And secondly, the NRA is opening its convention in Houston tomorrow, three days after the massacre in Uvalde. Former President Trump, Texas Governor Abbott, and others are set to speak there. Does the White House think it is appropriate for that convention to move...
    Karine Jean-Pierre held her first daily briefing as White House Press Secretary on Monday, and Cecilia Vega of ABC News asked about the role “replacement theory” played in Saturday’s mass shooting in Buffalo that killed 10 people. Specifically, Vega asked if the White House believes Fox News host Tucker Carlson is “amplifying” the conspiracy theory. The 18-year-old suspect, who is White, allegedly drove to a supermarket in a predominantly Black neighborhood and began shooting immediately after exiting his vehicle. In a online screed attributed to the suspect, he ranted about the “great replacement,” a conspiracy theory that originated with a French writer who claimed elites are replacing Europe’s White population with non-White immigrants. That idea has gained traction among some right wing elements in the United States. Carlson has deployed the conspiracy theory on his show multiple times in the context of immigrants coming to the U.S. The Fox News host stated in September that President Joe Biden “is chang[ing] the racial mix of the country… to reduce the political power of people whose ancestors lived here and dramatically decrease increase the...
    Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded to a question about the heckling of President Joe Biden during the State of the Union address by reading out a message to grieving Gold Star families. Congresswomen Lauren Boebert of Colorado and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia made headlines at Tuesday night’s SOTU speech, turning their backs on cabinet members and periodically heckling the president, including the well-publicized moment Boebert shouted out while Biden spoke about his son. Ms. Jeann-Pierre briefed reporters aboard Air Force One Wednesday en route to Wisconsin and was asked about the latter moment. But instead of responding to the fact that Boebert was heckling, KJP addressed the substance of the shouted jab — the 13 families who lost a loved one during the evacuation of Afghanistan: Q Does the President have a reaction to the interruption last night by the — I think it was two Republican congresswomen right around the time when he was talking about his son? MS. JEAN-PIERRE: Yeah. So, you know, we grieve alongside these Gold Star families. We do not pretend to understand the depths of their grief,...
    The White House on Monday batted away questions about controversial plans to pay compensation to families separated at the border - just days after President Biden said he was in favor of payments to people who suffered under the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy. Last week Biden said reports he was planning to pay as much as $450,000 to separated families were 'garbage' before apparently backtracking. The result has been an administration under pressure from both left and right to explain its plans.  But White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre offered no further clarity when asked about the issue during the daily briefing on Monday.  'I will direct you to the Department of Justice for any specifics on that,' she said.  'You've asked us this question.  'We have answered it and I will refer you to the Department of Justice on any specifics.' White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred questions about compensation for separated families to the Department of Justice. It comes after a series of reversals about whether the administration was planning to pay...
    Fox News’ Peter Doocy continued his sparring match with White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on potential payments to migrant families Friday. President Joe Biden called the initial reporting “garbage” this week when asked by Doocy. The ACLU reacted with surprise and said the president may not have been aware of the plan, and on Thursday Doocy confronted Jean-Pierre about this. She said the president was reacting to “the dollar figure that was mentioned.” He followed up Friday asking, “Your administration is negotiating cash payments for some illegal immigrants who were separated from family members under the last administration. Why give taxpayer money to people who broke federal law to get here?” “You like this question, Peter,” Jean-Pierre said. “We talked about this yesterday.” She told Doocy she can’t speak to this and he should go to the Justice Department for comment, reiterating that “we’re in this place where we are today” because of the last administration’s “inhumane, immoral policy.” Doocy brought up the ACLU’s reaction and asked, “Is the president being kept out of the loop about...
    Fox News’ Peter Doocy responded Thursday to the White House’s pushback over his Wednesday back-and-forth with President Joe Biden. Doocy confronted the president yesterday over reporting in The Wall Street Journal that the government is in talks to give $450,000 per person to immigrant families separated under the Trump administration to resolve lawsuits. The Fox News correspondent asked Biden, “Do you think that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?” “If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah,” the president responded. Doocy asked if he meant it was a “garbage report.” Biden said yes. However, this took the ACLU by surprise, and they said the president “may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy.” Doocy asked White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about this during Thursday’s briefing. “Who is right?” Jean-Pierre said, “If it saves taxpayer dollars and puts the disastrous history of the previous administration’s use...
    President Joe Biden’s administration indicated during a Thursday press conference that they would be open to more lockdowns if scientists recommended it. Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the lockdowns. He pointed out that Biden had promised lockdowns would not return, but that the president had said the same thing about masks, which are now being recommended again by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). (RELATED: Biden Administration Says Federal Employees Now Have To Confirm Vaccination Status Or Risk Various Hurdles) “Why should Americans trust him now?” Doocy asked. “Well, because we listen to the scientists,” Jean-Pierre said. “We listen to the experts.

    White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that the Biden administration will continue to "listen to the scientists" when it comes to potential future lockdowns and school closures. During the daily White House press briefing, Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre why Americans should "trust" what the administration says when the official line has changed so much over the course of the coronavirus pandemic.    RANDI WEINGARTEN RIPPED AFTER TELLING MSNBC 'WE'RE GOING TO TRY' TO REOPEN SCHOOLS AFTER CDC MASK GUIDANCE "President Biden says that we are not returning to lockdowns, shutdowns and school closures," Doocy said, "but he also once said that we didn't have to wear masks anymore once we were vaccinated. So why should Americans trust him now?" "Well, because we listen to the scientists, we listen to the experts," Jean-Pierre responded. "This is a public health situation. This is not about politics at all, this is about saving lives. And this is what the president is all about. He wants to make sure that we are saving lives. If you look at, Peter,...
    President Joe Biden sent a warning to the presidents of Russia and China during his Memorial Day speech on Sunday, reported Fox News. "I had a long conversation for two hours recently with (Chinese) President Xi (Jinping), making it clear to him we could do nothing but speak out for human rights around the world because thats who we are," Biden said. "Ill be meeting with (Russian) President (Vladimir) Putin in a couple weeks in Geneva making it clear that we will not stand by and let him abuse those rights." Biden delivered his first Memorial Day speech as commander-in-chief, at a Memorial Day service in Delaware on Sunday morning, where he offered comfort to the families of fallen service members.  He brought up his issues with Chinese leaders as his administration still refuses to commit to punishing China- should the coronavirus lab leak theory be proven true. "We havent ruled out anything yet," principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters during Wednesdays press briefing when asked whether the virus had emerged in a manner that was "deliberate or not an accident." "Would the president...
    The White House said it isn’t ruling out the theory that China deliberately leaked the COVID-19 virus, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday. Jean-Pierre was asked about the origins of COVID-19 during Wednesday’s press briefing after President Joe Biden issued a statement asking the intelligence community “to redouble their efforts” in coming to a “conclusion” on where the virus came from. One reporter noted that the “language” used by Biden in his statement “specifically mentioned an accident.” He asked Jean-Pierre if the administration has “ruled out … that it was deliberate or not an accident.” The White House deputy press secretary declined to say this theory has been ruled out, instead noting that all options are still on the table. “We haven’t ruled out anything yet,” Jean-Pierre replied. “Again, we’re gonna go through this re-doubling down of a 90-day review, and we’ll have more to share.” WATCH: Biden wrote in the press release that there are “two likely scenarios” regarding the origins of COVID-19: The virus “emerged from human contact with an infected animal or from...
    The White House said it hasn’t ruled any theories out yet on COVID-19’s origin but refused to say whether there would be retribution if the tracks led back to a Chinese lab. "We haven't ruled out anything yet," principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters in her first time at the briefing podium, when asked whether the virus had emerged in a manner that was "deliberate or not an accident." President Biden said earlier Wednesday in a statement that the intelligence community is torn between "two likely scenarios." He said ‘two elements’ of the Intelligence Community leaned toward the theory that the virus emerged from human contact with an infected animal and one element leaning toward the accidental lab leak theory. "The majority of elements do not believe there is sufficient information to assess one to be more likely than the other," Biden said, adding that each theory had been assessed with "low to moderate confidence."  BIDEN: INTEL TORN ‘BETWEEN TWO LIKELY SCENARIOS’ ON COVID-19 SOURCE  "Would the president seek to punish China?" Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre,...
    President Joe Biden’s administration may not publicize the findings of a 90-day review of the origins of COVID-19, with officials refusing to detail potential actions after the report is released Wednesday. White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre repeatedly declined to say whether the U.S. would impose consequences on China if the review concludes that COVID-19 leaked out of a research lab. Jean-Pierre emphasized, however, that the U.S. is dissatisfied with China’s lack of transparency and cooperation throughout the pandemic. “If it turns out that COVID-19 originated from some sort of a lab accident in China…would the president seek to punish China?” Fox News Reporter Peter Doocy asked. “We’re not gonna go there just yet. We have to go through the 90-day review,” Jean-Pierre said. “Once we have the 90-day review we’ll be able to reassess.” “We’ve been very clear with the WHO to continue to get to the bottom of this,” says @KJP46. pic.twitter.com/nMD5yGDRqj — Steve Herman (@W7VOA) May 26, 2021 WATCH: Reporters pressed Jean-Pierre on the apparent turnaround from the White House on a U.S.-led...
    It is an external and rapid application which almost buries the hypothesis of an internal application. Two weeks after the announcement of the next departure of Jean-Pierre Denis, will Julien Carmona be the ideal successor to the emblematic president (non-executive since last year) of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa? On the proposal of Jean-Pierre Denis, the Breton banking group asked the current Deputy CEO of the real estate group Nexity and former CFO of BPCE (Caisse d’épargne), to stand as a candidate for the mandates of director and then chairman of the board of directors. This application was examined Monday at the end of the day by the board of directors of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa.
