You know the White House is in hot water when even CNN starts calling out the rather brazen lies constantly emitted from its varied inhabitants and representatives.
Either that, or Biden’s clear divorce from reality and perpetual delusions have made defending his behavior too difficult, so the network has instead decided to give Biden a taste of the type of treatment they routinely assailed Trump with throughout his truly America-first agenda.
Biden, of course, appears addicted to bragging to some metaphorical mirror, given how absurdly self-confident he appears in uttering completely false statements.
“Under my predecessor – the great MAGA king – the deficit increased every single year he was president,” Biden boomed.
Ah, of course. Though at least gas prices didn’t skyrocket into oblivion.
Besides, Biden will bear the dubious legacy of having illegal immigration increase “every single year” under his tenure, a vastly more deadly legacy, especially in light of the fact that apparently even terrorists are allowed to essentially stream through, per Bezos doppelgänger Alejandro Mayorkas.
“Let me remind you again: I reduced the federal deficit. All the talk about the deficit from my Republican friends, I love it,” Biden chortled arrogantly, “I’ve reduced it $350 billion in my first year in office. And we’re on track to reduce it, by the end of September, by another 1 trillion, 500 billion dollars – the largest drop ever.”
On the contrary, Biden increased the deficit by $2.8T in his first year, as reported by none other than CNN.
In an article titled “Fact check: Deconstructing Biden’s claim that ‘I reduced the federal deficit,” CNN writer Daniel Dale does just that: He fact checks Biden’s absurdly ironic disinformation.
“The roughly $2.8 trillion deficit in fiscal 2021, during which Biden was in office for more than eight months, was about $360 billion lower than the roughly $3.1 trillion deficit in fiscal 2020, Trump’s last full fiscal year in office,” Dale remarked.
Fair point. Though that would be the last fiscal year that COVID swarmed the United States while Democrats blasted Trump’s flight bans from China as “racist.”
Democrats also demanded the shutdown of as many businesses as possible, aside from the winery owned by California Governor Gavin Newsom and the Amazon monopoly formerly run by ultra-leftist Jeff Bezos.
In other words, Trump had no choice but to spend additionally, especially to protect Americans. Not to mention, you know, Warp Speed, the program that created the vaccines that Democrats ended up making a centerpiece of their many failed policies.
Speaking of failed policies, Dale is savvy enough to note that Biden’s $360B is hardly impressive when stacked up against what it could have been, had the president retained a semblance of fiscal responsibility.
“A $360 billion decline is certainly substantial. The Congressional Budget Office, however, had estimated at the beginning of Biden’s tenure that the fiscal 2021 deficit would be a decline of more than $870 billion if the Biden administration did not implement new policy,” Dale remarked in disbelief.
Pretty remarkable that Dale put forth a balanced article, allocating blame to Congress as necessary, not to mention pointing out specific facts regarding the annual deficit.
Additionally, the remark on “more than $870B” illuminates the nuance omnipresent across the article.
Maybe CNN is turning a curve, especially in light of the latest economic revelations.
In other words, had the Biden administration come in and literally done nothing, the nation would be in better shape now, at least economically, than it has been ever since January 2021.
Alas, the Biden administration has apparently made undoing everything of value that Trump has ever done a top priority, especially the Trump era policies designed to protect Americans.
It’s a real shame that CNN has just now decided to “fact check” the nation’s alleged leader, though everyone pretty much knows by now that Biden is just a front for someone else, likely Obama, who in turn has his own paymaster that ensured he was in the White House in the first place.
Fortunately for CNN, in the event that Trump returns to Twitter, the network can either embrace him or do exactly what it’s always done before: Spew lies and disinformation, some of which engenders death threats against underaged minors (i.e., Nick Sandmann).
If the beleaguered network is at all interested in achieving viewership over 1M again, it might consider an embrace instead.
