White House press secretary Jen Psaki hilariously claimed Wednesday that decrepit Joe Biden, the worst President in American history, had “saved Christmas” by delivering on his promise of stocked shelves in time for the holiday.
Psaki shared a New York Times article titled “Why Christmas Gifts are Arriving on Time This Year” along with the comment, “Take that Scrooge, the Grinch and all of the doubters that this could happen. Also shelves are stocked at 90% (pre-pandemic levels are 91%).”
Psaki later claimed during the White House press briefing: “As The New York Times said today, Christmas gifts are arriving on time this year … Good news. We’ve saved Christmas & that is because President Biden recognized this challenge early, acted as an honest broker to bring key stakeholders together … and focused on addressing … problems across the global supply chain.”
Fact check: Biden didn’t “recognize the challenge early” — his administration caused the supply chain issue in the first place and let things pile up while diversity hire Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg took off for a two-month maternity leave — that’s right, maternity leave.
But in contradictory messaging, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain suggested that the supply chain problem was nothing more than a collective hallucination shared by media: “Merry Christmas to all, and to this over-hyped narrative, a Good Night.”
“Seems kinda hard to take credit for having turned the tide with the considerable number of supply chain actions the administration has touted in recent weeks if their position is it was all just a media narrative,” San Francisco Chronicle correspondent Tal Kopan remarked.
