The White House seems to be under the illusion that President Joe Biden is the hero who has “saved Christmas” despite the nation’s ongoing supply chain crisis.
The president met to discuss the disruptions in the U.S. supply chains with business leaders Wednesday after the White House claimed that his administration had undertaken “aggressive action” to combat the issues.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki sang Biden’s praises after that meeting, sharing the “good news” that the president was comparable to Santa Claus.
“As the New York Times said today, Christmas gifts are arriving on time this year,” Psaki said. “Good news. We’ve saved Christmas, and that is because President Biden recognized this challenge early.”

Although there have been some changes and improvements at U.S. ports where loaded cargo ships have been languishing, creating bottlenecks that have led to empty store shelves in the midst of the holiday shopping season, problems still persist.
But Psaki shared a “few key points of progress” with reporters on Wednesday, claiming a 50-percent drop in the number of containers sitting on the docks at the Ports of LA and Long Beach for over eight days.”
“The average amount of time containers sit on docks has fallen by a week,” she said, adding that retail stocks on shelves are “at about 90 percent inventory.”
But the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports are still seeing backlogs, Seatrade Maritime News reported Tuesday.
“While the dwell times for containers have reduce the queues of ships to dock at LA/LB terminals remain as long as ever,” the outlet noted. “As of Friday 19 December some 95 containerships were queued to enter the two ports according to the Marine Exchange of Southern California. This number includes 23 containerships anchored or loitering within 40 miles of LA and LB, plus 72 container ships loitering outside the Safety and Air Quality Area (SAQA).”
Despite the reality faced by Americans days before Christmas, with skyrocketing inflation and shortages of goods, the White House outrageously touted “stronger growth in President Biden’s first year of office than any other president in the last 50 years” in a “fact sheet” released ahead of the president’s meeting with business leaders.
“Since Day 1, President Biden has been laser-focused on reopening the economy and has taken aggressive action to lower the price of goods and gasoline for Americans,” the fact sheet stated. “The president’s Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force has made significant progress to alleviate bottlenecks that are rooted in the global pandemic.”
The administration is purportedly “moving record amounts of goods to keep shelves stocked” as it tries to meet “record demand,” the sheet continued.
