Joe Biden didn’t hesitate to gaslight the American people while taking a trip for some ice cream on Saturday.
Biden was munching on a Baskin Robbins ice cream cone in Portland, Oregon, when he was asked by a reporter if he was concerned about the “strength of the dollar.”
“I’m not concerned about the strength of the dollar,” Biden said with a mouthful of the dessert. “I’m concerned about the rest of the world. That make sense? Our economy is strong as hell.”

“Inflation is worldwide,” Biden continued. “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.”
“It’s worldwide inflation. It’s consequential,” he added.
The U.S. economy experienced two straight quarters of negative GDP growth in 2022, putting it in recession territory.
Additionally, stock market losses have wiped out nearly $9 trillion of wealth from U.S. households amid the highest inflation in 40 years.
In fact, half of the American people are struggling to pay their bills, according to the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research

But Biden expects you to believe the opposite while he chows down on chocolate chip ice cream.
This comes as day after Biden offered unsolicited dating advice to a young girl in Irvine, California.
“Now a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughters — no serious guys until you’re 30!” Biden told her following a speech at Irvine Valley College.

“Ok…” she responded. “I’ll keep that in mind.”
