Joe Biden got trotted out today to put a pretty rose-colored bow on the latest dismal jobs report. And to pretend that the Delta variant of COVID19, and not his terrible economic policies, is to blame for any bad news.
Joe Biden blames the delta variant for his weak August jobs report, saying there’s “no question” that’s why the number isn’t stronger. pic.twitter.com/jBuowFLce4

Apparently we’re not only supposed to take Joe Biden at his word that none of this is his fault, but we’re actually supposed to be grateful that he’s the one in charge:

Lookin' good, Joe! https://t.co/bEw6TIbWO0

This is going well.

This is the best that Joe Biden has to offer right now: “I’m not Donald Trump.”
Well, that’s true, Joe. You most definitely are not Donald Trump.
Is this really the time to ask people if they were better off four years ago? https://t.co/2mMCwBDV3B

I'm not sure you want that comparison, Mr. President. https://t.co/yrRnRwd58c

We wouldn’t if we were Joe. For all of Donald Trump’s faults — and there were many — the economy was humming along pretty nicely for a while there. Gas was relatively affordable and inflation wasn’t preventing people from buying things they needed. We hadn’t abandoned Americans and Afghan allies and called that a success. We hadn’t alienated our closest allies in the world. We were actually doing pretty well before Joe Biden showed up to save America.
Curious if Biden REALLY wants to be saying "imagine if the other guy was here" after these last few months when he's failing at every front possible. https://t.co/od4v6JlBxE

That excuse is wearing thin. He owns the recent ham-handed COVID response and the resulting stalled recovery. That’s on him.

Taxes are up, economy is moribund, and we abandoned people in Afghanistan. AMERICA IS BACK BABY AND THANK GOD WE DON'T HAVE THE OTHER GUY HERE. https://t.co/TQN3KlnfV2

This administration really is toast
They've gotten nothing accomplished and have had failure after failure. Inflation. Delta variant. Afghanistan.
Trying to find someone else to blame isn't leadership. https://t.co/VSAKdH5YBu

But then, Joe Biden’s no leader. Imagine if he were.
The funny part is that because of him, people do it all the time. https://t.co/hbc4tyXRhN

No kidding. I think about that all of the time.

Every damn day. You have no idea.

I definitely wish he was

Things would be better

We certainly can’t fathom that they could possibly be worse. Though we’re sure that Joe Biden will show us how soon enough.
