Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) joined MSNBC on Wednesday to tout President Joe Biden’s record on the economy — specifically pointing to inflation and saying that it was “down” — and claimed that “disinformation” was the reason so many Americans weren’t seeing that progress.

Clyburn was still at it when “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski — who agreed with Clyburn that “disinformation” was certainly a problem — broke in to point out the fact that inflation had risen more than expected in the last month.


“And so the inflation rates are down,” Clyburn began. “And people’s incomes are up. Unemployment is on the decrease. And although we see the prices at the stores costing more money, people are in fact earning greater incomes.”

“So what we’ve got to do is make sure that people see the policies of Biden administration, how they affect their everyday lives and get them to see in his policies that which is real, not what they may hear on social media,” Clyburn continued, arguing that “disinformation” on social media platforms was one of the main reasons people didn’t believe the Biden economy was working in their favor.

Brzezinski echoed Clyburn’s concerns about the impact of “disinformation,” but then shared a headline showing the most recent Consumer Price Index data — which revealed a greater-than-expected increase in the inflation rate for the month of March: 3.5%, the highest increase in 6 months.

“There’s also a lack of validation that these voters feel,” Brzezinski said. “And I’m going to bring in Andrew Ross Sorkin right now because we just got breaking news — the Consumer Price Index increased at a faster-than-expected pace last month, a signal that inflation remains stubbornly high.”


Despite efforts made by the Biden administration and surrogates to suggest otherwise, the American people also remain largely unconvinced that “Bidenomics” is working for them. Polls — both formal and informal — suggest that most prefer the economy under former President Donald Trump.
