CNN learned the hard way that Chris Christie is no fan of “Bidenomics” as the Republican presidential hopeful gave an answer that wasn’t what anchor Kasie Hunt was expecting.
The former New Jersey governor continued his string of Sunday morning television appearances on “State of the Union” where he took a break from his nonstop bashing of former President Donald J. Trump to lower the boom on the current White House occupant and his disastrous economic record.
As the segment was wrapping up, Hunt brought up the economy, seeming to expect that just because Christie hates Trump, he would swallow the propaganda about Biden and compliment him on the smokescreen put out by the White House and the media.
She was badly wrong as Christie took her on a trip down memory lane to the last time that a Democrat president brought as much pain to the American people as Biden has with budget-crushing costs for such essentials as food, energy and housing.
“So you mentioned the big things, and I want to ask you about that because the reality is there is some good economic news these days,” she said. “Inflation is creeping down to 3 percent, GDP is strong, consumer sentiment is on the way up. We have wages going up faster than prices. Do you think President Biden deserves any credit for that?”
“What he deserves credit for is the fact that everything is 17 percent more expensive today than it was when he took the oath of office on January 20th of 2021,” Christie responded, yanking the rug out from under the Biden cheerleader. “Interest rates are at our highest level in 25 years, making it much more expensive for people to buy a home, to buy a car, to be able to invest in their business and grow it to create jobs.”
“This guy is the Jimmy Carter of the 2020s,” he added, referring to the nation’s 39th president who is widely acknowledged as the worst U.S. leader of the modern era, at least until Biden came along.
Christie continued, “And his inflation, that he created – and don’t take my word for it, Democratic economist, former Treasury secretary under Bill Clinton, Larry Summers, has said that Joe Biden created this inflation through his ridiculous spending.”
“I dealt with this in New Jersey, Casey, after coming after Jon Corzine,” he said, referring to his Democrat predecessor. “We had an $11 billion deficit on a $29 billion budget. We balanced the budget by cutting 836 individual programs and did not raise taxes.”
“This stuff can be done but you need someone who knows how to execute and knows how to do it,” he added as Hunt glumly stared, moving from Biden back to Trump whom he characterized as a failure on multiple key issues, closing with his pitch to be elected president and suggesting that he will be a man of action.
The truth is that the economy under Biden stinks, just take it from VP Kamala Harris who slipped up and admitted it during a recent event in Iowa where she said that “most” Americans are only one unexpected expense away from financial ruin.

The fact of the matter is that Biden has presided over the worst inflation in four decades, and while it has somewhat subsided since last year, Americans are being punished by his policies each and every time that they go to the grocery store, just like they were when Carter was in charge.
