Confused Brandon Goes On Winding Tangent When Asked Critical Question About Economy

How is the Biden economy doing?

The Biden Administration claims all is going well, but as of the fall of 2023, the average American seems to think otherwise, particularly as the stock market stagnates, the inflation crisis continues, gas prices creep back up, and a recession appears imminent. So, the fact that Biden went on a long, confused ramble about poll numbers when asked about the economy was hardly reassuring.

That came when a reporter asked, “Mr. President, you started your remarks here today by saying it was good news today with the economic report. Why do you think most people still don’t feel positive or feel good news about the economy?”

President Biden, in a confused ramble of a response, said, “Well, first of all, you just heard the news today, too. They haven’t heard it. I think the people — those 300-plus-thousand people who got jobs feel better about the economy.”

Continuing, he said, “I’d — look — I got to choose my words here. You all are not the happiest people in the world — what you report. And I mean it sincerely. It gets a more little — you get more legs when you’re reporting something that’s negative.”

He then added, “I don’t mean — I don’t mean you’re picking on me or I’m — just the nature of things. You turn on the television, and there’s not a whole lot about “boy saves dog as he swims in the lake.” You know? To say — you know, it’s about, you know, ‘somebody pushed the dog in a lake.‘”

And, of course, blaming Russia came up: “I mean, I — I get it. But — if you just listen to what’s going on around the world, there’s reason for people to be concerned. There’s reason for people to be concerned — what’s going on with — in Russia. There’s reason to be concerned about what’s going on in other parts of the world.”

Ending the long ramble, he said, “I think that the American people are smart as hell in knowing what their interests are. I think they know they’re better off financially than they were before. It’s a fact. And all the — all that data — all that polling stuff shows they think — they’re more positive about the economy than they’ve been, more positive about their jobs, et cetera. I just think if you — let me put it this way: If you just watched what happened last week in the Congress, how excited are you going to be about much of anything? Anyway. Thanks.”

During the questioning period, Biden also tried to punt when asked about his administration’s view of Jim Jordan as the next Speaker of the House, saying, “Look, whomever the House Speaker is, I’m going to try to work with. They control half the — half the Congress, and I’m going to try to work with them. There’s some people, I imagine, that’s going to be easier to work with than others. But whomever the Speaker is, I’ll try to work with.”
