“They All Look Like Game Show Hosts To Me”

spin cycle

Now I get it, Little Lyin’ Hood’s obsession with “circling back.” For what is a “circle” if not just a slow-motion spin?

All that word salad getting tossed around is just old Slo-Joe’s attempt to follow suite and circle back to some good news.


President Joe Biden put a positive spin on September's disappointing jobs report, focusing on a better unemployment rate. "Today's report has the unemployment rate down to 4.8%, a significant improvement from when I took office.”

You are to ignore the fact that the “significant improvement” he cites is due solely to a dramatic decrease in the labor participation rate (nobody seems to want to work in America anymore for some reason).

Only in the spin-cycle can a jobs report that comes in at less than 40% of expectation (194,000 v 500,000) be considered “disappointing.”

The US added just 194,000 jobs last month, falling far short of expectations for the second consecutive month even as schools reopened and COVID-19 cases began to fall, the feds said Friday.

Especially given that it’s even worse than August’s unexpectedly “disappointing” jobs number:

September’s numbers fell far short of economists’ expectations of 500,000 jobs added, and comes after the country added a disappointing 366,000 jobs in August, according to revised figures released Friday.

Some people would consider that disastrous. But not old Slo-Joe: he’s firmly committed to “circling back” around…and around. He told us that “monthly totals bounce around” – yeah, that’s what numbers do when they are spinning around.

Oh, and for the record: Slo-Joe communicated this “information” while at the “pretend White House” set up on a sound stage in an auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across the street from the real White House.

Some people have mocked the White House for having built a “literal game show set” for Joe. You’ll be closer to the truth if you think of it more like a “reality show” TV set. At this point Slo-Joe wouldn’t even make an adequate game show host.
