Biden appears to mock Americans' intelligence, questions whether 'they'd understand' supply chain issues

On Saturday, President Biden mocked the intelligence of Americans and asked if they understood the subject.
During a news conference, the president made these remarks in response to a question about criticism he faced from Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.). He said that "Nobody elected him FDR, they elected them to be normal and end the chaos."


Biden stated, "I don’t intend to become anybody except Joe Biden. That's who my identity is." "I'm trying to do the things that I ran on to, and I see people out there who are just ordinary, hard-working Americans who have been through the ringer over the past couple of years."

Biden stated that "people are concerned", suggesting that people don't understand why "the cost of agricultural products has increased."

"If we all went out for lunch, I would say, "Let's ask the person at the next table, regardless of where they are located, to explain the supply chain." Are you sure they would understand what we were talking about? Biden asked.

The president stated that they are smart people, but that the current crisis was part of a complex world.

Biden said, "We've never faced something like this." It's easy to understand why people are upset. It doesn't matter if you're a doctor or a waitress, it's confusing. People are understandably concerned.

Biden said that he would try to "explain to American people" the supply chain issues facing America. He also told the reporters present that he had never seen any reporter "explain the supply chain very well."

Biden said, "This is a confusing period."
