President Biden was upset at a reporter’s question during a recent press conference addressing the U.S. job situation and the economy. Here’s the whole story.
The Press Conference
President Biden opened with optimistic news about the economy during his press conference.
The Good News
He said, “Good news today. This morning, we learned that the economy created 336,000 jobs in September alone. That means since I’ve taken office, we have created 13.9 million new jobs.”
However, one reporter raised a question and 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?”
Biden Was Upset
In response, President Biden displayed a mix of frustration and acknowledged that the media often emphasizes negative news.
Feel Better About the Economy
He said, “First of all, you just heard the news today, too. I think the people, the 300,000-plus people that got jobs feel better about the economy.”
Not the Happiest People in the World
“I’ve gotta choose my words here. You all are not the happiest people in the world. What you report. And I mean it sincerely. You get more legs when you report something that’s negative. I don’t mean you’re picking on me, it’s just the nature of things,” he added.
The Media Focuses on the Negative
“You turn on the television and there’s not a whole lot about ‘boy saves dog as he swims in the lake.’ You know, it’s about, ‘Somebody pushed the dog in the lake.’ I mean, I get it. But if you just listen to what’s going on around the world, there’s reason for people to be concerned,” he continued.
Reason for People to Be Concerned
Biden went on to say, “There’s a reason for people to be concerned with what’s going on in Russia. There’s a reason for people to be concerned about what’s going on in other parts of the world. I think that the American people are smart as hell and know what their interests are.”
People Are Better off Financially
President Biden claimed that people are better off financially than before and that it is supported by data and polling that indicate increasing optimism about the economy.
How Excited Are You?
“I just think — let me put it this way. If you just watch what happened last week in the Congress, how excited are you going to be about much of anything?” he concluded.
Biden Was Criticized Before
This is not the first time President Biden was questioned about the current state of the American economy.
In July, Donald Trump wrote, “MASSIVE PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT IS CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA. THE WEAPONIZATION OF LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN,”
Twitter Users Expressed Their Views
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “But inflation is still very high and prices will never return to their 2019 level, which is what many Americans were hoping for. So Bidenomics may never increase in popularity.”
Another user humoredly added, “This is great news! With the high cost of gas and groceries, I’m going to need all the jobs I can get!”
Bidenomics Is a Failure
A third user commented, “Bidenomics is having to take on another job to survive the skyrocketing prices of food and fuel, and inflation brought to you by – you guessed it – Bidenomics.”
A fourth user wrote, “9 million of those jobs are ones that came back from the pandemic, and the others are people working multiple jobs to afford your s*** economy, demented liar.”
