The decade's most triggering comedy
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during an interview over the weekend that President Joe Biden’s economic plan was working but that the president needed to explain that to people to make sure that “American people know.”
Pelosi made the remarks during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Dana Bash.
Bash rattled off a series of economic metrics that she said were positive news for the Biden administration and then asked Pelosi why the numbers do match Americans’ sentiment about the economy that is reflected in polling.
“Well, a lot of it’s about messaging, of course,” Pelosi said. “I’m so proud of this president. In the two years that we were in the majority working with him, he broke all records, on the level with a Lyndon Johnson or a Franklin Roosevelt, in terms of the caliber of legislation that he passed for the good of the people, lowering prescription drugs, again, cutting in half – as you indicate, cutting in half unemployment.”
Pelosi said that the alleged success that the administration has had “has to be messaged” for Americans to know its true, even if the reality that the experience does not reflect the messaging from the Biden administration.
“This president did such a remarkable job,” Pelosi claimed. “He is a person of such knowledge, such vision for the country, such knowledge of the issues, such strategic thinking and such a legislator, and, on top of it all, a person who connects with the American people.”
“He just has to get out there,” she continued. “It’s a busy job being president. I can say that as being speaker. You’re doing your work. But he’s just going to have to make sure the American people know at that kitchen table what this means to them, in terms of jobs and pay, reducing inflation.”
