WASHINGTON, DC—A spokesperson for the Underworld has disputed US President* Joe Biden’s claim that the US economy is “strong as hell,” citing data showing Hell’s economy is much stronger.
“The data are really very clear. Hell has much lower inflation and a zero percent unemployment rate because everyone works like a dog,” Hell’s Spokesperson Legion said.
Fact checkers from several sources have confirmed that most economic indicators do in fact point to a stronger economy in Hell.
“Look, we love Biden as he’s one of our strongest advocates,” Legion said. “But he’s just wrong on this one.”
The Spokesperson did admit that the US had the advantage in one metric.
“There are more abortions in the US than in Hell, so they have that going for them,” they said.
