President Joe Biden triggered a wave of first confusion and then ruthless mockery early Wednesday by posting a tweet celebrating his “economic track record.”
“We’re ending 2021 with what one analyst described as the strongest first-year economic track record of any president in the last 50 years. Let’s keep the progress going,” he wrote without naming this alleged analyst.
This initially provoked folks into using search engines (DuckDuckGo, Bing, etc.) to try and locate this possible mysterious analyst. But that effort ultimately failed, because as far as anyone can tell, this analyst doesn’t appear to exist.
And even if there is an economic analyst somewhere who has said the president is responsible for “the strongest first-year economic track record” anywhere, that wouldn’t make him or her right. Not by a long shot.

Stunningly, over 40,000 people liked the tweets. If you scroll through the “liked by” list, you’ll find people who identify as “LGTBQ education junkie,” “#resistersister,” “anarchist,” “#blacklivesmatter,” “”a very blue Democrat,” “single mom,” etc.
Sounds about left …
As for who replied to the tweet, nearly 20,000 did, and as you’ll soon see, virtually all of the replies were scorching in their mockery.

You’re ending 2021 with the lowest approval rating of any @POTUS in American history.
If you have any cognitive ability left whatsoever, maybe you should question why instead of remaining #ToneDeaf

Gaslighting until the very end.

Screwed up labor market.
Higher trade deficit.

Even China got in on the action.
Chen Weihua, a notorious Chinese troll who works as a “journalist” for the Chinese Communist Party, slammed the president for bragging and noted that people who are genuinely the best “don’t say it” — they show it.
OMG. Everyone should learn how to brag 10 times a day by now. I am the best journalist in the last 50 yrs, the best teacher, best singer, best doctor, best film star, best zoo keeper, best politician and the best liar in the last 50 years, may 70 years, a bit longer than Biden.

I have said it before, if you are the best, you don’t say it. Those who tout themselves the best are often not. Have you heard LeBron James and Michael Jordan saying they’re the best?

This raises the question of what exactly has Biden shown? According to critics, he’s shown that he has no idea what he’s doing.
They say that his policies — burdensome regulations, draconian vaccine/mask mandates, pipeline closures, reckless spending — have engendered massive inflation, lowered wages and made the American people’s lives significantly harder.
This might explain why his economic approval ratings “are worse than [Jimmy] Carter’s,” according to CNN, a network not known for bashing him.
When Biden signed his $1.9 trillion far-left wish list into law in March, he promised our economy would take off.
What happened instead?
Higher prices, lower real wages, and weakening economic growth.

But instead of admitting the truth, the president keeps doubling down — either maliciously, meaning he’s gas-lighting, or because he genuinely believes he’s the tops, in which case he, critics say, is living in a fantasy world.
While Americans struggle with the most expensive Thanksgiving in history, President Biden is spending the holiday vacationing in Nantucket at a billionaire’s luxury estate.
Biden continues to live in a fantasy world detached from reality.

And indeed, the president’s latest tweet suggests it’s the latter. Not only does the tweet deny the reality being faced by countless Americans, but it conflates America returning to normal (after mainly blue state governors purposefully shut down their economies amid the pandemic) with an economic boom.
The economy would have returned to normal regardless of who won the 2020 presidential election. However, critics are confident that if former President Donald Trump had won, America would be back to the old normal by now — not the “woke” “new normal” being seen under the new president …
just because you close everything down and re-open it doesn’t equal growth.

The hangover effect of the Democrats power binge is prices will not return to the Trump days. The new normal will be the inflated prices of today and tomorrow. Biden Bust Binge! BBB
