Conan O'Brien only needs one tweet to wreck Joe Biden's pathetic attempt to redefine 'recession'
I don't think late-night is "turning" on Joe Biden as much as Biden's ridiculousness has destroyed any good graces he might have saved up. Late-night comedians can only shill for so long before they grow concerned about their self-respect. It may very well work with CNN when the White House gets to the point they think they can redefine what a recession is (two periods of negative economic growth) to avoid America being in a recession under Ol' Puddinghead, but comedians still have a job to do. And Conan O'Brien offered up the perfect tweet to illustrate this.
The White House now says it’s only a recession if you see a salamander wearing a top hat.

Side note, I just learned it's "O'Brien" and not "O'Brian." It's also Andrew Schulz and not "Schultz." I'm having an odd week.
Conan sent his tweet on Wednesday afternoon. On Thursday morning, the GDP report came out, and we are in our second quarter of negative growth. So, you know what that means...

Conan is at least being intentionally funny. Unintentionally funny is the mainstream media. Foodie and radio host Erick Erickson said earlier in the week, "We're about to see just how much the media is over Biden. If they go along with the Biden Administration's redefinition of what a recession is after four decades of holding it as 2 quarters of negative growth, the press is dead, and only the propagandists remain."
Let's take a look...

A comedian making a joke about a lizard in a hat is less ridiculous than how our actual media is reporting on our recession. And yes, America is in a recession under Joe Biden. Salamander or no.
