Joe Biden is a grumpy fella when he misses his nap.

The President with an impressive 39% approval rating (and falling) was out for a leisurely stroll along the Delaware beach Monday when a polite reporter asked him about the state of the U.S. economy.

“Mr. President, the majority of economists are saying a recession is more likely than ever,” the reporter began.

“Not the majority of them aren’t saying that,” an obviously fussy Biden snapped back. “Come on, don’t make things up, okay? Now you’re sounding like a Republican politician.”

Biden immediately tried to soften his tone, adding, “I’m joking, that was a joke, that was a joke. But all kidding aside, no I don’t think it is. I was talking to Larry Summers this morning. There’s nothing inevitable about a recession.”

Note that Brandon failed to offer any hard data to substantiate his claim that “a recession is not inevitable,” nor has his administration put forth a cohesive plan to address rampant inflation and a faltering economy.

But Biden isn’t alone in his rosy, non-credible economic projections. In fact, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen concurs with his assessment. Oddly, she even used the exact same terminology as the President.

Yellen’s assurances are enormously reassuring. No, really. She is, after all, the only economic ‘expert’ who didn’t see the inflation crisis on the horizon.

Inescapable Conclusion: A recession is absolutely inevitable.
