Watch: Biden Snaps at Heckler, Claims He’s Cut Deficit by $1T

President Biden was at it again Tuesday, telling tall tales and shouting gibberish. He was speaking at Union Station in Washington, D.C., on the care economy—described by the United Nations as including “paid (employed in the formal and informal sectors) and unpaid work through which care is provided for others”—when he was interrupted by a heckler.

The president angrily responded, “Well, I’ll tell you what…you wanna come make a speech or shush up, okay?” Then he took a look at the protester and thought better of it because, evidently, the guy looked tough.

“I’m not messing around with him!” Biden backtracked, suddenly grinning as if realizing Jill would scold him later for losing his temper.

“He looks like he could take me!”

But the next moment was the most bizarre of the speech—he suddenly shouted out what sounded vaguely like “ASKME!” I turned to the White House transcript for help and they’ve translated it as “AFSCME!” According to Google, AFSCME stands for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, and I suppose he could have been giving them a shout-out, but it was still a random and startling moment.

Watch:

It wouldn’t be a Biden speech, though, without some outlandish claims that are utterly detached from reality. Here, he laughably claims he’s shaved one trillion dollars off the deficit:

Even the leftist fact-checkers at Politifact have repeatedly debunked this whopper.

The annual federal deficit declined by $1.4 trillion on Biden’s watch, from 2021 to 2022. That was larger than any previous one-year reduction in the deficit. Looking at the two-year period from 2021 to 2023, the deficit declined by less, but still by almost $1.1 trillion.

The decline happened mostly because the pandemic was an extraordinary historical occurrence that prompted an aggressive, and temporary, government response.

On Biden’s watch, even the reduced deficit is larger than any of the deficits on Trump’s watch. And the federal debt has kept rising, just more slowly than it did during the pandemic.

According to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, the deficit is growing in 2024:

The federal government ran a deficit of $296 billion in February 2024 — $34 billion more than the deficit of $262 billion that was recorded in February 2023.

Joe continued, claiming he was a master tax cutter:

While Biden’s claim is the subject of dispute, what is true is that his proposed 2025 gargantuan budget seems designed to both soak the rich and squash the little guy.

House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (MO-08) points out that Biden’s tax hikes would be massive:

President Biden’s $7 trillion tax increase on small businesses and families means fewer jobs, higher prices, and handing our competitive advantage to China. Far from going after the wealthy, these are tax hikes that hit workers, mom-and-pop business owners, seniors nearing retirement, and family farms and ranches. And with the IRS getting another $104 billion and an expanded ability to approve penalties, Democrats will be on the fast track to collect your life savings.

To top it off, Biden boasted that he commuted over a million miles as a U.S. Senator, presumably on his beloved Amtrak trains. Since his Delaware home is approximately 220 miles from D.C., that would mean at least 4,546 trips. Or, as RNC Research pointed out, that’s basically to the moon and back—twice.

The president did log over 1.2 million miles on Air Force planes during his vice presidency, but I’d like to see the receipts showing that he traveled that far by train in his career.

It was yet another in an ever-lengthening list of speeches where the often befuddled Biden will say just about anything if he thinks it will make his story better, regardless of whether it has any relation to the truth.

    This SOB lies lies like a dog, ought be shot and then hung, and X I don’t care a fuck if you post this or not but it is telling it like it is. You assholes are just complicit with him so fuck you all too!

    The National Debt is the *true measure of federal goverment spending and it continues to climb faster than before.

    The “deficit” is the measure of the difference between the budget and spending. So if you really “need” to spend $1T, then budget for $3T and next year claim that you cut $2T from the “deficit” – while actually having spent more than income, and having borrowed from our adversary (and Joe’s friend) China. It’s just an accounting trick to fool the MSM consumers.

    I wish Mel Brooks could make a movie about this administration.
    History of the World Part D’oH.
    It would make Blazing Saddles look like a poetry reading.

  • Larry Bowling says:

    Biden tells lies every time he opens his mouth. He really thinks that we the people are dumb enough to believe everything he says. Mr. Biden – NEWS FLASH – we the people are much smarter than you give us credit for and we intend to show you and your regime by voting for Trump and getting you out of DC next January!!!
