The Biden Administration's latest attempt to rebrand terrible economic news as good news was so blatant that even CNN's fact-checker Daniel Dale called them out.

In a Tuesday tweet, the White House claimed that "Seniors are getting the biggest increase in their Social Security checks in 10 years through President Biden's leadership."

Except, that's only because it's tied to inflation - which has skyrocketed.

"That's quite the spin," Dale responded, adding "The size of Social Security checks is linked, by law, to inflation. This year’s increase is unusually big because the inflation rate is unusually big."

when you've lost the "fact checkers"... https://t.co/XKFyvecGx2

And now, Twitter has 'fact-checked' the White House - something one wouldn't normally expect pre-Elon;

"Seniors will receive a large Social Security benefit increase due to the annual cost of living adjustment, which is based on the inflation rate."

The community notes feature is awesome.

Our goal is to make Twitter the most accurate source of information on Earth, without regard to political affiliation.

In other news, Joe Biden said that inflation is a problem because of the "war in Iraq... excuse me, the war in Ukraine," adding "I'm thinking about Iraq because that's where my son died."

Biden's son was never in Iraq and died on US soil of brain cancer.

And what did the regime media call Biden's lie about his son? 'Verbal fumbles'

I'm surprised we don't appear to have an active thread bemoaning Musk's purchase of Twitter. This is a huge blow to the left-wing echo chamber. It turns out that Twitter (50% of their staff has been fired, far more than that in some countries where they had fewer users) was coordinating with the UN for censorship standards and selling blue check marks for like $15,000 at a time.

Joe's team obviously panicked when they saw him get fact checked, this isn't supposed to happen to them, it only happens to other people :?:
