Karine Jean-Pierre: ‘Americans Feel Better about Their Finances’ Thanks to Biden

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has claimed that the American people “feel better about their personal finances” thanks to Democrat President Joe Biden’s handling of the economy.

Jean-Pierre was swiftly, and brutally, fact-checked over the claim, however.

During the White House press briefing, CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond asked why the Biden admin is boasting about “Bidenomics.”

Diamond cited polling that shows an overwhelming majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s economic policies.

“Is there a risk that this new branding could backfire?” the reporter asked.

Jean-Pierre’s response made it clear the Biden admin does not believe its fantasy narrative will backfire.

“Look, 13 million jobs,” she said, falsely suggesting that Biden had created that many.

“Again, when you think about how Americans feel better about their personal finances, that is important.

“When you think about wages are going up, when you think about the really good paying, millions of good paying jobs, that union jobs that his policies are going to create, all the things are really incredibly important.

“So the president’s going to continue to speak to that.”


Jean-Pierre’s claims quickly went viral on social media.

Many were quick to point out that the press secretary’s comments show the disconnect between reality and the Biden administration’s narrative.

“What world is she living in? Inflation is the highest it’s been in 40 years,” Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) responded.

“Nearly 80% of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

“A vast majority of Americans can’t find $1k in emergency funds.

“Biden has FAILED America.”

“Gaslighting at its finest,” Rep. Max Miller (R-Ohio) responded.

“3/4 people believe the country is on the wrong track (74%).”

“Prices have increased 15.5% and real wages have decreased 3.2% since President Biden took office,” Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) pointed out.

“Americans are getting crushed because of Biden’s policies.”

“The only people in America who feel better about their personal finances are the Biden Crime Family,” Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) quipped.

“Stock market is down, food cost are up, rent is up, gas is up, savings are going down……. I feel so much better,” a Twitter user mocked.

It’s not true that Biden has created 13 million jobs.

While the economy may have added that many jobs since Biden became president, the vast majority of those jobs represent people who returned to the workforce after pandemic lockdowns.

Inflation, meanwhile, is still high at 4% — twice the Federal Reserve’s targeted rate.

Meanwhile, American households are carrying more debt and less savings.

Corporate bankruptcies and foreclosures are up too.

None of these are metrics of a thriving economy and high consumer confidence.

Indeed, only one-third of Americans approve of Biden’s job on the economy, a recent Associated Press-NORC poll found.

Even fewer (24%) believe the economy is in good shape.
