President Biden, in a Thursday White House press conference, met with reporters to deliver statistics about the U.S. economy and ends with, "That doesn't sound like a recession to me" then walks off leaving reporters stunned.

Many Democrats and Republicans alike are scratching their heads tonight wondering why President Biden is blind to the state of the country right now.

In the White House press conference today, he stated statistics about how many have been created since he became president, how manufacturing jobs are on the rise as companies move back into the U.S., tax credits and how unemployment is down. He ended the press conference by saying, "That doesn't sound like a recession to me" then walked off as reporters yell out to him.

Many Americans are outraged.

I've never witnessed such a despicable president in all my 74 years on this planet. And he WALKS AWAY REFUSING TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. THE ABSURDITY OF IT ALL LEAVES ME SPEECHLESS. -Marie H.

OMG...I'm at a loss of words just listening to him feeding us the lies he's told to repeat. -Rosemarie M.

Are any of us surprised that he wouldn’t take questions? He’s a pathetic president. Sue R.

It's weird how the man said he would do more than any other President but can't be responsible when everything turns to crap. -Chris M.

Why can't he just say we are technically in a recession but here's all this good stuff that is happening? He just comes off as some low-integrity person. -bgw32

Ummmm, I think the jobs you are claiming that you made are actually just people finally being ALLOWED to go back to their original jobs. I've been out of work for 3 months, can't find a job. -Gina M.

Joe needs to stop looking at statistics graphs and percentages and wake up to reality!! -Kenny R.
