So I guess Joy Reid thinks Americans’ support can simply be bought…
MSNBC’s radical TV personality Joy Reid lamented over President Biden’s low approval ratings, arguing Americans should be more grateful because of the “$2,000 checks and shots.” During an interview with left-wing historian Michael Beschloss, the liberal pundit openly mocked Americans’ complaints about rising inflation rates as holidays loom, meanwhile Reid’s net worth is approximately $4 million.
According to Fox News:
“I hate to really dwell on polls because they’re ephemeral and at this point in many of their presidencies a lot of presidents faced a crisis of public confidence, and Joe Biden faces a massive ongoing COVID nightmare that is harming his numbers. His numbers are pretty low right now,” she said.
“There are also a lot of Americans who despite having gotten the shots and checks are still telling pollsters that he’s accomplished nothing or almost nothing, which I find amazing. I guess they spent the whole $2,000 and now they’re not happy anymore,” Reid said. “Does this matter? Should we think about this in terms of those polling numbers?”
Beschloss, an open supporter of Biden, said with the midterms a year away there was still hope that the newly signed infrastructure law, as well as the sprawling, nearly $2 trillion Build Back Better social policy package that still languishes in Congress, could help jump-start the economy.
Reid appeared to be referring to the stimulus checks that were sent out as part of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package Biden signed into law this year, although they were for $1,400, not $2,000.
This goes to show just how out of touch liberals are with everyday American’s concerns
