Biden got caught telling a whopper.
It was so bad, several left-leaning outlets had to call Biden out on it.
But the misinformation from this administration goes much further than the one lie everyone is talking about.
This is the tweet that everyone went off about…
When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available.
In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President's term ever recorded.

There are actually three lies/exaggerations in there.
First, the vaccine aspect of the lie was so bad, even CNN went off about it…
Don’t you love how Dr. Fauci just laughs it off?
Even WaPo fact-checker, Glenn Kessler, who had gone out of his way to protect Biden, had to admit they got this one wrong, telling the White House to delete the tweet…
Who’s manning the @WhiteHouse Twitter account? Delete this false tweet. Biden himself has said 8% of seniors had gotten the vaccine on the day he took office. Biden was one of them. —> https://t.co/ojDmn1DNIQ https://t.co/V7z07DHQ90

The White House finally admitted it lied, yet Biden could not help but take credit for “fully vaccinating” 200 million Americans, as though the previous administration had nothing to do with that.
We previously misstated that vaccines were unavailable in January 2021. We should have said that they were not widely available.
Vaccines became available shortly before the President came into office. Since then, he’s responsible for fully vaccinating over 200 million people. https://t.co/rHJ0GZ63Dy

But, back to the original tweet…
Biden’s economy did not “create” 8.3 million jobs.
Those jobs were merely people going back to work after the ridiculous lockdowns were removed.
Finally, they are claiming they have had the fastest decline in unemployment ever recorded.
Again, a monkey could have been in the White House and unemployment would have gone down coming out of a pandemic, yet the media continues to allow the administration to push this angle.
FACT: Prior to the pandemic hitting, unemployment in this country was sitting at 3.5 percent (both January and February 2020).
It rose to 14.7 during the shutdown and was back down to 6.4 percent when Joe Biden took office.
In April, unemployment was sitting at 3.6 percent, still 0.1 percent higher than the last month prior to the pandemic, so Biden has literally accomplished nothing on this front.
Those are the actual facts, something this administration is incapable of telling to the American people.
