Lyin' Joe Biden attempted to defend rising unemployment reports by stating on Friday that the United States is "still digging out of an economic collapse" but that the country is on the "right track."
Biden blames the pandemic for his short-comings. He said he inherited a "once-in-a-century pandemic and a once-in-a-generation economic crisis."
He continued, "We knew this wouldn’t be a sprint—it would be a marathon."
Fox News reports:
The April jobs report released Friday showed the U.S. economy heavily missed Wall Street’s expectations, adding a measly 266,000 new jobs as the country continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The unemployment rate also unexpectedly rose to 6.1%. While it's still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it's about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department announced in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv said they expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs.
"You might think we should be disappointed," Biden said of the numbers, but claimed the "American Rescue Plan," which passed in late March, "was designed to help us over the course of a year—not 60 days."
Perhaps the unemployment is still so high because of how well it pays. People don't want to go back to work because they are making enough sitting at home, getting those big Biden bucks. Therefore we have nearly every business in the country with "help wanted" signs and short staffed.
Just a thought.
"Today, there is more evidence our economy is moving in the right direction," Biden said, adding that "it is clear we have a long way to go."
"This is progress. This is a testament to our new strategy," he continued. "We’ve got work to do, to state the obvious, we have work to do."
Biden concluded, "Let’s keep our eye on the ball."

Report: Hunter Biden to Teach 'Fake News' Class at Tulane University
Just when you think things couldn't possibly be anymore absurd than they already are, Hunter Biden is now set to guest teach a class on "fake news" and "media polarization" at Tulane University this fall.
