During a recent stop in Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden claimed that the economy is ‘strong as hell’ as he stuffed his face with ice cream.
It’s hard to imagine how he could make himself look more out of touch.
Millions of Americans are struggling with massive inflation.
FOX News reports:
Biden blasted for telling reporter the economy is ‘strong as hell’ while eating ice cream in Portland
A day after President Joe Biden drew criticism from conservatives on social media for giving unsolicited dating advice to a young teen girl in California, the president is again in hot water for claiming the “economy is strong as hell.”
The comment came during a conversation with a reporter at a Baskin Robbins in Portland, Oregon, who asked the president if he had any worry about the strength of the U.S. dollar amid rising inflation.
With a chocolate chip ice cream cone in his hand, Biden answered: “I’m not concerned about the strength of the dollar. I’m concerned about the rest of the world. Our economy is strong as hell.”
He added: “Inflation is worldwide. It’s worse off than it is in the United States. So the problem is the lack of economic growth and sound policy in other countries not so much ours.”

Self-awareness is not one of Biden’s strong points.
