Democrat President Joe Biden’s latest effort to gaslight the American people over his economic policy has failed miserably on social media.
Biden tried to defend his policies by claiming that he looks at the economy “through the eyes” of people “in Scranton,” not “Wall Street and Park Avenue.”
Biden’s handlers posted the claims to the president’s official Twitter/X account on Monday.
“I don’t look at the economy through the eyes of Wall Street and Park Avenue,” the post reads.
“I look at it through the eyes of the people I grew up with in Scranton, Pennsylvania or Claymont, Delaware.”
I don’t look at the economy through the eyes of Wall Street and Park Avenue.
I look at it through the eyes of the people I grew up with in Scranton, Pennsylvania or Claymont, Delaware.

The claims come as some Democrats are pressing Biden to move away from discussing his “Bidenomics” strategy.
However, the Biden administration has continued to double down on its alleged success.
However, the response to Biden’s X post shows that many Americans are not buying his gaslighting claims.
Investment expert and former Wall St analyst Edward Dowd responded to Biden’s post by asking:
“And what did the fine folks in Scranton tell you?
“Are they more bullish on the economy than Wall Street or less?
“Seriously what are we saying here? What does this mean?”
Podcast host Dr. Mark Young seems to have some answers, however.
“He looks at the economy through the eyes of a Socialist with dementia,” Young explained.
Former Republican congressional candidate Jack Lombardi wrote:
“Well, then you should go ahead and admit your economy sucks.
“Because the average American, my fellow non-elite American, is struggling under your failed policies.
“Your record number of EOs you bragged about signing caused this.”
Immigration lawyer Matthew Kolken responded with a reference to allegations of a bribery scheme involving the president’s family, specifically his son Hunter Biden.
“Especially when they pay you $50K p/m in rent, amirite?” Kolken joked.
Actor Matthew Marsden argued:
“You have literally been in Congress most of your life.
“Now ask yourself is the country better since you took office?
“You look at the economy through the eyes of a corrupt old fool who has run the country into the ground.”
Rep. Mark Alford (R-MO) told Biden that voters are not falling for his claims.
“I can’t speak for Scranton or Claymont, but I can tell you what the folks in Sedalia, Missouri are saying,” Alford wrote.
“They’re not happy.”
Rep. John Carter (R-TX) agreed:
“You can look at it however you want, but don’t put lipstick on a pig and call it a beauty queen. #Bidenomics is killing the middle class from Pennsylvania and Delaware all the way down to Texas.”
In October, a Fox News survey found that 62% of Americans disapproved of Biden’s handling of the economy.
Only 37 percent of voters approve of his “Bidenomics.”
In addition, a Marquette University poll found President Donald Trump had a 23- to 24-point lead with voters on handling inflation, the economy, and the border.
Trump also held a 19-point lead over Biden in voters’ confidence in the candidate creating jobs.
