    Biden says a lot of dumb things and frequently embellishes the truth. All politicians do that to some level. I have no problem with calling them out on it no matter what the party.

    All I ask is to be consistent...call out both sides as much as possible regardless of your own party affiliation.

    Biden’s fantastical claim of $500 in annual utility savings

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2022/06/02/bidens-fantastical-claim-500-annual-utility-savings/

    excerpt:

    The Pinocchio Test
    The president wrote in an opinion article on his inflation plan — presumably vetted by staff — that utility executives told him “my plan would reduce the average family’s annual utility bills by $500.”

    But he didn’t hear that from utility executives.

    And the report he is citing is not about household utility-bill savings.

    Most of the claimed savings comes from the reduced cost of driving.

    And the estimate is for 2030 — when he would no longer be president, even if he served a second term.

    Is there any doubt the president earns Four Pinocchios?

    geezus, even CNN is fact-checking the Big Guy now

    Fact check: Biden falsely claims US has 'fastest-growing economy in the world'

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/10/poli...stest-growing-economy-jimmy-kimmel/index.html

    excerpt:

    In a Wednesday appearance on the ABC late-night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," President Joe Biden made a dramatic claim about the US economy -- and repeated himself for emphasis.

    "Look, here's where we are. We have the fastest-growing economy in the world. The world. The world," Biden said.

    Facts First: Biden's claim is false. The US economy grew by 5.7% in 2021, but more than 50 other countries had faster growth that year, figures published by the International Monetary Fund show; many of them are small or developing countries, but some of them are large or wealthy. In addition, the US economy shrank in the first quarter of 2022, while various other countries experienced growth. And while economic experts expect the US economy to resume growing over the rest of this year, a significant number of other countries are expected to grow faster.

    Asked for comment on Friday, a White House official did not attempt to specifically defend Biden's claim that the US has the fastest-growing economy in the world.

    Not ‘Putin’s Price Hike’: Fed chair Powell breaks with Biden on inflation

    https://nypost.com/2022/06/22/not-putins-price-hike-fed-chair-breaks-with-biden-on-inflation/

    excerpt:

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday broke with President Biden’s repeated attempts to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for the highest inflation in 40 years.

    Powell, confirmed last month to a second term as chairman, explained to the Senate Banking Committee that “inflation was high before” the Feb. 24 Russian invasion of Ukraine, which increased global food and energy prices.
