The mainstream media has treated President Joe Biden with kid gloves. Perhaps that’s why he can’t handle the gentlest pushback on the most important issue of his presidency.
Biden snapped at a female reporter Monday after she asked about the the possibility coming recession, Breitbart reported. The president was speaking to the press in Rehoboth, Delaware where he was spending the Juneteenth holiday.
The unidentified reporter noted that the “majority” of economists are speculating that “recession is even more likely than ever.” Though his voice was calm, Biden’s habit of shooting back at anyone who asks him even a moderately challenging question was on full display.
“Not the majority of them aren’t saying that, c’mon, don’t make things up, ok?” Biden said. “Now you sound like a Republican politician,” he added.
“I’m joking, that was a joke,” Biden claimed. Then the president said that his consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury reassured him that the economy was not on the brink of a disaster.
“All kidding aside, I don’t think it is, I was talking to Larry Summers this morning,” Biden said. “There’s nothing inevitable about a recession.”
However, analysts are warning that “recession is more likely than not” right now, the New York Post reported. “Disruptions in the energy and food sectors, coupled with declining consumer sentiment, are contributing to a looming economic slowdown in the US and abroad,” Aichi Amemiya and Robert Dent, economists from the major international investment firm Nomura, warned.
Biden is to blame for the economic turmoil that is increasingly indicating a coming economic crash. Between his bloated legislation, failures on controlling energy costs, and overall hostility toward the free market, Biden has created the perfect storm for this disaster. However, he can’t answer for himself when a reporter wants to know the truth, and he certainly will do nothing to address his blunders.
