On Monday, Joe Biden snapped at a reporter who asked him about the potential that a recession is on the horizon.

According to Mediaite:

“The economists are saying a recession is even more likely than ever,” a woman who has not been identified said to Biden.

He responded, “Not the majority of them aren’t saying that. Come on, don’t make things up, okay? Now you sound like a Republican politician.”

Biden told the woman he was joking. “But all kidding aside, no, I don’t think it is,” he added, citing a conversation he had with former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers. “There’s nothing inevitable about a recession.”

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen shared a similar sentiment Sunday when she said she does not view a recession as “inevitable.” “I expect the economy to slow,” she told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on This Week. “It’s been growing at a very rapid rate, as the economy, as the labor market, has recovered and we have reached full employment. It’s natural now that we expect a transition to steady and stable growth, but I don’t think a recession is at all inevitable.”

I feel that we are already in a recession. My portfolio is down past the 20% loss that signifies a recession. Biden has always been a liar of sorts and as the Laptop from Hell coughs up ever more damning evidence that the Biden Clan of Grifters made a very deluxe standard of living off of WE THE PEOPLE. Biden used his addicted, mentally unstable Son as a Bag Man and money launderer while He held the Second Highest elected post in the Nation. Where is his morality and honesty?
