White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stunned reporters and the media on Thursday when she claimed Joe Biden’s America is “stronger economically than we have been in history,” despite record-high gas prices and staggering inflation.
The successor of Jen Psaki, Jean-Pierre is a bonafide master of spin. That held true yesterday when she offered the following remarks:
“We know that the American people are feeling the high costs. We understand what they are feeling. Because — because when you look at inflation; when we look at where we are economically — and we are in a strong — we are stronger economically than we have been in history; when you look at the unemployment numbers of 3.6 percent; when you look at the jobs numbers — more than 8.7 million of new jobs created — that is important. ”
These comments come on the heels of an encounter she had with Fox News’ Peter Doocy who, ever the combatant, referenced a survey indicating American dissatisfaction concerning the direction of our country. Inflation remains one of the top issues.
Rather than admit the obvious, however — Biden just isn’t that popular with Americans — she claimed Biden’s policies are moving the country forward like never before. Of course, this President suffers with his people — on things like inflation and fuel costs, which the administration has only recently acknowledged as being real problems.
All this aside though, America is stronger and better in 2022 — at least in the clown world of the Democrat Party. Just ignore high gas prices, crippling inflation, supply chain unreliability, abysmal border security, and any number of other issues — foreign and domestic.
We wish Biden’s America was as great as the Democrat sales pitch. But their “facts” don’t pass the smell test. More importantly, with the highest inflation rates we have faced in forty years, their “truths,” improperly so-called, do not pass the head test either.
