Politico posted an article Thursday titled: “Biden enters the Always Be Closing phase of his first term,” just hours after the U.S. economy officially entered a recession, drawing heavy criticism on social media.

“Somehow, someway, Joe Biden is back in the game,” the article read. “After enduring a brutal year dominated by economic angst, legislative setbacks, and sinking approval ratings, the president is suddenly on the verge of a turnaround that, the White House believes, could salvage his summer — and alter the trajectory of his presidency.”

“After crashing the ship into an iceberg, the captain is suddenly on the verge of a turnaround after being able to drive one lifeboat around the ice. Some believe it could salvage his career — while the ship sinks,” another user posted.

Others pointed out Politico’s inability to keep track of its own reporting, which conflicts with the rosy picture being painted in the Thursday article. “Politico’s own polling had Biden at his all-time low approval rating this week (37%). The wish-casting is real,” another tweet read.

While the president continues to deal with crises and the U.S. economy enters a recession — the mainstream media, in an effort to cover for Biden, has forgotten the silent majority, once again. The same Americans who are currently suffering due to the Biden administration’s radical and out-of-touch agenda.
