According to Lael Brainard, the director of the National Economic Council, President Biden’s economic record is supposedly one of the best in the world. She boldly claimed that world leaders would be scrambling to trade places with Biden if given the chance. Well, that’s a pretty impressive statement. It’s always amusing when people try to put lipstick on a pig and present it as a beauty queen. But hey, who needs facts and reality when you can just spin the narrative to your liking?
WATCH: Biden advisor bizzarely claims that Joe Biden has the “world’s best” economic record.
Do you agree with her? 🤣https://t.co/AwLAfsmFdy

Brainard went on to dismiss recession fears, pointing to the recent jobs reports as evidence of a thriving economy under Biden’s leadership. But let’s not forget that unemployment rates and job creation were already on a positive trend before Biden even took office. It seems convenient for the Biden administration to claim credit for something that was already in motion. Are they also going to claim responsibility for the sun rising every morning?
Meanwhile, President Biden himself has been desperately trying to paint a rosy picture of his economic policies through his campaign slogan of “Bidenomics.” Sorry, Mr. President, but catchy slogans won’t hide the fact that the majority of voters have serious concerns about the soaring inflation rates. Sure, the numbers may have stabilized a bit lately, but prices are still higher than they were pre-2022. So much for the promises of a better economy.
To add insult to injury, recent polls have shown that only a measly two percent of voters believe that the economy is in “excellent shape.” That’s not a typo, folks. Only TWO percent. It’s safe to say that Biden’s messaging is falling flat with the American people. Even the younger voters, who hailed Biden as their savior in 2020, now trust former President Trump more when it comes to the economy. Ouch, that’s gotta sting.
But fear not, according to Brainard, the nation’s economy is supposedly humming along just fine. She touts a three percent growth over the last three years and claims that inflation is down by 60 percent. Well, I hate to burst her bubble, but there’s a big difference between cherry-picking data and presenting the whole picture. Yes, the economy may be performing decently, but let’s not forget the massive government spending, skyrocketing national debt, and burdensome regulations that come with Biden’s policies. It’s like putting a shiny coat of paint on a sinking ship.
And what about those recession fears? Brainard merely brushes them aside, claiming that most forecasters are taking recession calls off the table. Well, forgive us for not jumping on the optimism train, but it’s hard to ignore the underlying issues that could potentially lead to an economic downturn. Just because job creation is at a sustainable level doesn’t mean we should turn a blind eye to the structural problems that could derail our economy in the long run.
In the end, Brainard’s attempt to spin Biden’s economic record as a smashing success falls flat. The American people aren’t fooled by catchy slogans and empty promises. They understand the reality of rising prices, stagnant wages, and the potential for another recession looming on the horizon. It’s time for the Biden administration to face the music and take responsibility for their actions instead of trying to paint a picture that doesn’t exist.
