On Thursday, Joe Biden announced that the stimulus bill is working even better than had been expected. Biden’s dissociation from reality is nearly complete, but one wonders: aren’t there any journalists who are capable of looking up the administration’s predictions and asking Biden fact-based questions? Or is that considered too much work?
