POLITICS: Biden gaslights on the border, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson blames his ‘black wife and kids’ and more


Diary of disturbing disinformation and dangerous delusions

This charge:

“The only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.” — President Biden, Tuesday

We say: Uh, no. The reason the border’s not secure is that Biden reversed all the Trump policies that kept the border under control.

The prez wants voters to blame Trump and Republicans for opposing recent legislation Dems falsely claim would’ve fixed the border.

Yet no legislation might’ve been needed if he’d stuck with Trump’s policies.


This excuse:

“I’m doing all that with a black wife raising three black kids.” — Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson, Monday

We say: Johnson blamed his “black wife” and kids, along with the demands of his job, for not scheduling a trip to the border.

Surely he wasn’t suggesting (as a racist might) that black women and kids are more demanding than white ones.

More likely, as a guy who plays the race card reflexively, Johnson just couldn’t keep the words from flying from his lips.

And maybe running the city while married with kids is tough — but if he’s not up to it, why’d he run for the job?


This tweet:

We say: Democrats can hit GOPers for trying to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the border, but claiming the move is “animated by antisemitic, white supremacist conspiracy theories” is beyond nuts.

Under orders from President Biden, Mayorkas never got the border under control, yet he falsely told Congress it’s secure.

A recent CBS News-YouGov poll found nearly two-thirds of voters think Team Biden needs to be “tougher” at the border.

Biden himself now admits it’s not secure. Are they all antisemitic white supremacists?  


This claim:

“When the president walked into this administration, the economy was in tailspin. He had to turn that around.” — WH Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, Tuesday

We say: Tailspin? Third-quarter GDP growth hit 35% in 2020, followed by 3.9% growth in the last full quarter before Biden took office.

It then logged 7% in early 2021, as the COVID vaccine fueled a white-hot recovery. Alas, growth soon began plunging under Biden, even going negative in 2021.

Meanwhile, inflation, which had remained below 2% for most of 2020, set record highs in 2022.

Yes, Biden did turn the economy around. That’s the problem
