‘I wasn’t great at math, but…’ Joy Reid one-ups Stephanie Ruhle with hottest of all takes on Biden’s economy

Joy Reid is at her worst again, never failing to impress with her lack of basic knowledge.

Speaking on the matter of inflation, Reid declared on her show “The Reid Out” Wednesday that “Prices are higher…but Americans are spending a record amount of money.”

This echoed the recent and ridiculous observation made by NBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, who explained – with all the economic theory chops she could muster – that crippling inflation is no big deal because Americans (presumably Americans like her) have plenty of money to throw at it.

“The dirty little secret here, is that while nobody likes to pay more, on average, we have the money to do so,” Ruhle opined on Sunday. She also touted the stock market’s performance and encouraged people to invest in it, failing to mention that the Biden regime plans to tax unrealized gains on those investments if they get their way.

Not to be outdone, Reid couldn’t help but call and raise Ruhle’s airheaded assessment, adding her own unhinged analysis by saying, “So, Republicans want you to believe the economy isn’t doing well, that’s terrible. But, in reality, unemployment is at its lowest point since the pandemic began. Prices are higher…but Americans are spending a record amount of money.”

Reactions were swift and criticism easy to come by, if for nothing but that Reid seemingly has no understanding of cause and effect.

Oh, but it continues!

Reid then attempted to explain away Joe Biden’s currently disastrous presidency by blaming the usual suspects: Trump, who is not the president, and Republicans, who are not in charge of anything right now.

And she topped it off by bringing in Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for a nautical cheer of Huzzah! for the Build Back Better agenda.
