The political fact checking site ‘Politifact,’ itself long accused of pro-liberal bias, has now turned on the Biden White House, labeling a recent statement by Press Secretary Jen Psaki as ‘false,’

As The Daily Wire reports:

PolitiFact has hit White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki with a “false” rating over her claim about how economists feel about President Joe Biden’s spending agenda.

Psaki has repeatedly said that economists back Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill. Last week, for instance, Psaki told reporters that “no economist out there is projecting that this will have a negative impaction inflation.”

PolitiFact cited some economists as proof. “I’m an economist, and I disagree,” Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum, told the fact-checking site.

“We know there’s lots of spending in the bill, and that it’s front-loaded” into the earlier years, he said. “If you cut taxes and increase spending, financed by debt, that will put upward pressure on inflation.”

The label comes in the wake of increasing dissatisfaction with Biden’s handling of the economy according to multiple polls.

“There isn’t an economist out there…” and she knows this because she has talked to every one of them? The statement can’t possibly true so it is no great thing that PolitiFact called it False.

She strikes me as a smug POS that can’t be stupid enough to believe the drivel that comes out of her pie hole. Or does she?

She is being paid to TELL lies not believe them. Only a fool would believe anything any Biden mouth piece has to say!
