Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked by MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell about her own party’s leadership, where she made the unbacked claim that President Joe Biden has had a better first two years than most previous presidents.
Pelosi started by discussing changes that needed to take place in the party, stating: “But in some cases, there’s no substitute for experience, and I think that what we had been through with the legislation under the leadership of President Biden, who has done a spectacular job – he’s had a better two years than most presidents that you can name, certainly in the recent generations.”

Pelosi’s comments come as Americans continue to deal with record-high inflation, as the US continues to be flooded by illegal aliens, and as American cities see crime increase to rates not seen in decades.
Her comments also come as fears over an economic recession loom. Economist and Wall Street Journal writer Stephen Moore recently sounded the alarms via Twitter that Biden is the “Inflation King,” telling followers to “pass it on” while tweeting a graph showing the Consumer Price Index, which is used to measure inflation.

The US has also seen record highs in opium overdoses, with 2021 seeing over 100,00 overdose deaths for the first time ever.
“Since May 2021, the Texas Dept. of Public Safety has seized over 337 MILLION lethal fentanyl doses – enough to kill every person in America,” tweeted Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “Drug cartels are exploiting Biden’s open border policies,” he said.
