The Biden administration received massive backlash earlier this year when they claimed skyrocketing inflation was merely “transitory” despite economists’ predictions.
It’s now apparent they are desperately trying to avoid a similar mistake as it’s become obvious just how permanent (not transitory) Bidenflation truly is. Not only is inflation bad, but the United States is now headed toward total recession — and the Biden administration is currently trying to get ahead of it.
National Economic Council Director Brian Deese would not rule out a possible recession during a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Host Dana Bash asked whether the U.S. is at risk of falling into a recession.
He proceeded to launch into a 45-second deflection that in no way answered the question.

This is precisely how a politician-turned-economists would answer a question from a CNN pundit about the harrowing realities that come along with an economic recession.
It wasn’t long ago when Americans struggled under the previous recession, which Joe Biden just so happened to be front-and-center for as Vice President of the United States.
Now, as President, Biden’s policies (all of which have been influenced by globalist corporations and world governments) have caused the U.S. economy to barrel toward collapse.
Deese said Americans are increasing their savings and paying down debt while businesses are investing in the economy to make his point.
When asked if he was confident the United States could avoid another recession, Deese failed to give a straightforward answer.
Deese said the U.S. was in a “better place than any other country” and that the administration was focused on bringing inflation down before the interviewer cut him off.
“But you’re not saying no,” Bash said.
“Look, there are always risks, but we feel very good about where the United States is, particularly when you look on the global landscape.”
Inflation reached its quickest uptick since December 1981 and soared to 8.5% in March.
Consumer prices are up across the board as well.
The greatest indicator of a destroyed economy is not projections on a graph or theoretical numbers on a spreadsheet. It’s the American spirit.
The American spirit is down, and morale has tanked along with it — all as a result of an unrelentingly destructive economy that dissuades innovation, small business, and freedom.
