(JustPatriots.com)- President Joe Biden isn’t exactly known for being specific or detailed in his speeches, but he is known for his constant blunders…and on Monday, he made yet another embarrassing blunder.
While making comments about the dismal April jobs report, which was the worst since the Great Depression, President Joe Biden claimed that workers are not being paid to stay home…and then appeared confused and admitted that actually that’s precisely what’s happening.
“There’s been a lot of discussion since Friday’s report that people are being paid to stay home rather than go to work but we don’t see much evidence of that,” Biden said.

And then he said that complete opposite.
“That is a major factor…we, we don’t see that, that, look…” he continued.
So which is it?
Are people being paid to stay at home or not?
Many economists – and Republicans – have argued that this is precisely what is going on.
April’s jobs numbers showed an abysmal 266,000 jobs created, with unemployment rising from 6% in March to 6.1% in April. March’s jobs numbers were also revised down from 916,000 to 770,000.
Millions of Americans still have access to remarkably high unemployment benefits which have remained largely unchanged even as the pandemic has evolved and changed, and as more businesses have started to reopen. It means there is less incentive for people to get back out there and search for work as the economy begins to rebound.
Defenders of Joe Biden claim it’s just an “occasional slip of the tongue” from the president, but this seems to be much more serious.
Yeah, I'll take the occasional slip of the tongue over 7000+ lies per year.

President Biden seems to know people are being paid to stay at home, and he just let it slip.
