President Biden was mocked on social media after claiming “our economy is markedly stronger than it was a year ago” in the midst of high inflation.
President Biden: "Our economy is markedly stronger than it was a year ago, and today, the incredible news that our unemployment rate has fallen to 4.2 percent. […] Simply put, America is back to work and our jobs recovery is going very strong." pic.twitter.com/dlX0to7Jrm

Here are some of the reactions.
Wait, what…am I missing something here?! “Stronger than last year??” In what?!!!
The only thing stronger is my wallet from being opened wider to pay for stuff that is at an unbelievable stupid price!
Nothing is strong than last year…

Keeps comparing to a timeframe of reaction to pandemic lockdowns.
