Clyburn gets humiliating MSNBC fact check while gaslighting about ‘Bidenomics’

Top congressional Biden surrogate Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) was the recipient of an epic fact-check and strangely enough, it happened on MSNBC.

The normal Democrat gaslighting about the economy just isn’t working with voters getting an up close and personal look at “Bidenomics” whenever they go to the grocery store but Clyburn wasn’t one to be deterred.

During a Wednesday “Morning Joe”  appearance – which is Biden’s favorite show – the South Carolina kingfish was serving up some of his typical malarkey when he was interrupted by the latest economic numbers in humiliating fashion.

“What will this mean to people in their everyday lives?” Brzezinski asked as Clyburn disappeared from the camera.

Clyburn rambled on about how great the Biden economy really is and that anyone who believes otherwise is just being fed a line of disinformation from social media,

“I do believe just from my own observations, from the conversations I have had with people, there are concerns about things like inflation, but what we’ve got to get them to see is that inflation today is about 40 percent of what it was when Joe Biden took office,” he said, “And so the inflation rates are down, and people’s incomes are up. Unemployment is on the decrease, and although we see the prices at the stores costing more money, people are, in fact, earning greater incomes.”

“So what we’ve got to do is make sure that people see the policies of the Biden administration, how they affect their every day lives, and get them to see in his policies that which is real,” Clyburn continued. “Not what they may hear on social media. One of the focus group people talked about social media and the misrepresentation, disinformation, all of those things are out there and that’s the battle that we have to fight and we’ve got to do a better job of fighting it more effectively.”

Then, the breaking news on the Consumer Price Index release by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that just dropped forced co-host Mika Brzezinski to cut away, yanking the rug out from under Clyburn as she turned the floor over to CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin who delivered the grim numbers to MSNBC viewers.

“I think this was a big surprise. It is accelerating and we’ve been on this broadcast for months now about how the trend line was in President Biden’s favor. Today I imagine they’re throwing a party at Mar-a-Lago because the truth is that right now inflation has now moved in the opposite direction, so it’s going to be harder for the administration to make the argument around this inflation trend line,” Sorkin sadly said.

There may be a way for the media to spin the dismal inflation numbers but unfortunately for Biden, the brutal truth is that even with the most awesome propaganda machine in human history, few are being fooled by the sustained assault on household budgets since he took office and now gas prices are rising again too.

Good thing for the Democrats that they’ve still got abortion but even that reliably potent political scam isn’t going to make a convincing case for many suburban female swing voters who are suffering from the prolonged inflation that the Biden administration has inflicted on their pocketbooks.
