Democrats are so accustomed to spinning their own truth about events with little to no pushback from the media, but the Biden White House is taking that luxury to the extreme in selling that Americans are in a better place than ever economically, better than the rest of the world.
President Joe Biden took to Twitter on Tuesday to tout how wonderful things are, interestingly citing the year 1976 in spinning his yarn.
“The fact is America is in a stronger economic position today than just about any other country in the world. Independent experts have even projected that the U.S. economy could grow faster than China’s economy this year. That hasn’t happened since 1976,” he tweeted.

Of course, given the ability to manipulate and massage statistics, the Biden water carriers in the media may actually be able to produce figures to support the claim, but White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre may have gone a little too far out on the propaganda limb when she tried to claim the economy “is in a better place than it has been historically.”
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy cited a Wall Street Journal poll to ask why 83 percent of Americans think the economy is “poor” or “not so good,” and Biden’s spokesperson proceeded to serve up healthy word salad — read from her notes.
“So, when it comes to consumer confidence — is what you’re talking about there — we know that can reflect concern and uncertainty about higher prices. People feel the effect of high prices when they go to the grocery store and they fill up their gas tank, which the president understands very personally — when he was growing up and understanding how when prices elevate even just a bit, how much that can hurt a family, how much that can really affect, you know, someone’s household,” she said. “But the fact is: We are in a fundamentally different place compared to when the president took office and compared to this time a year ago.”

Jean-Pierre went on to cite a Federal Reserve survey to say people “actually felt as good about their personal financial situations as they ever have,” pointing out that 80 percent of adults said that they are financially comfortable.
“But to the point about the — you’re saying that people feel good about their personal financial situation,” Doocy pressed. “High gas prices, people can’t get baby formula, the supply chain is messed up, everything is more expensive. Where’s the good part?”
“So, what I’m — I guess what I’m trying to say is that we understand that people are feeling this. They are feeling the increase of prices, with food, in particular, right now, and gas. That is something that we understand,” Jean-Pierre replied, before adding, “What we’re trying to say, what I’m trying to say to you is that the economy is in a better place than it has been historically.”
She then claimed that “we are in a good position to take on inflation… we are in a good position to really start really working on lowering prices,” only to follow up with this, “We leave that piece to the Federal Reserve.”
Even actor James Woods, who is rather quiet politically these days, had to respond to that load of “crap.”
“I love when they peddle this crap with a straight face…,” he tweeted.

I’ll be honest. Normally I reply to something like this with a gif, something sarcastically funny. But I can’t because this is so unreal that I’m stunned

Are these “independent experts” the same people who told you inflation was transitory? Or are they the people who haunt your dreams and walk through walls? https://t.co/Jior6UQpXX
