Maybe they thought everyone would agree.
The White House posted on social media celebrating 6-months of the Biden administration, suggesting the time will be remembered for vaccinations and job growth.
“Today marks six months of the Biden-Harris Administration. In six months, this Administration has fueled record-breaking job growth, vaccinated over 160 million people – and captured a lot of photos along the way. Here are a few snapshots from our time in office so far,” the White House posted on Instagram.
The backlash was swift, with thousands of users strongly disagreeing (to put it mildly) with the White House’s assessment.
“So we just going to forget that we are on the verge of inflation?” one commenter wrote in a post liked by more than 350 users.
Another comment highlighted the Biden administration’s censorship of social media: “Social media won’t let us talk freely about this stuff, why do you get to?”
And finally, “Worst administration yet… inflation, lack of jobs, debt to china, total crap fest border, ignorant lost president, worthless do nothing VP, and they pat themselves on the back hahaha.”
According to Fox New, “The Instagram post comes amid a slowdown in demand for the vaccine while coronavirus cases and deaths spike across the country. The administration failed to meet its goal this month of vaccinating 70% of the U.S. population, reaching only about 56% among individuals who are eligible, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“Meanwhile, consumer prices, a key gauge of inflation, rose 5.4% in June from the previous year, the highest rate since 2008. Also, gas prices are now averaging 98 cents higher than this time last year, according to AAA,” Fox News reported.
