The Biden administration appears to no longer be able to count on CNN’s support as it desperately tries to use our present economic position as a reason to support Democrats in November’s midterm elections.

Kasie Hunt and CNN Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza poked fun at the White House’s ridiculous attempts to present a positive picture of the consequences of the “Build Back Better” plan during a piece on the administration’s frantic attempts to redefine what a recession is.

The Biden administration is attempting to argue that the definition of a recession is ambiguous, but Kasie Hunt observed, “Inflation affects every American directly. The Biden administration is trying to point out the definition of a recession is nuanced, but I got to tell you, I struggle with this. I get why they want to do it, from a political perspective but, like, you can’t fake this.”

It doesn’t really matter what you think, there is a formal definition: two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth, Chris Cillizza said, highlighting the ridiculousness of the White House’s attempt to spin several poor economic data as not being a recession in their “view.”

“You don’t get to change the nomenclature in the middle of a campaign because it doesn’t work for you,” Cillizza said, discrediting the White House’s obvious attempts to rewrite the economic lexicon to save Democrats. “Joe Biden’s handling of the economy was at 25 or 30 percent in our most recent poll,” he pointed out, “like yeah it’s a problem for them — this adds to the problem.”
