Biden slammed for saying ‘America is back’ as Thanksgiving costs surge and he spends holiday in $30M Nantucket retreat

JOE Biden’s “America is back” comment during one of the most expensive Thanksgiving holidays on record was slammed on social media.

Biden made a surprise appearance via a phone call from his $30 million Nantucket compound to Al Roker during New York City’s iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade on Thursday.

Roker asked the president what his message is to the American people.

Biden responded: “My message is after two years, you’re back, America’s back, there’s nothing we’re unable to overcome, Al. And you’re one of the reasons for that. You’re always up and moving.”

Meanwhile, a classic Thanksgiving meal feast for 10 jumped $46.90 to $53.31 since last year, a 14 percent increase, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual Thanksgiving dinner cost survey.

The main driver in the increase is the 24 percent uptick in the cost of turkey and 26 percent spike in the costs of chicken breasts, according to Labor Department statistics.

Biden, who’s spending his holiday in his ritzy, -13-acre Nantucket estate, was criticized on social media.

“What is Joe Biden’s definition of America’s Back? It must be the rich are getting richer and everyone else is getting poorer,” one Twitter user said.

“Is Joe Biden that naive? ‘America is Back.’ I guess he meant America is in the Back, as in Behind! Education, Crime, Economy, Race Relations, Oil Production and Military. Thanks to his party! Happy Thanksgiving YOU FOOL!” another person Tweeted.

He was called, “President Tofurky,” by a Twitter user.

The first family also released a two-minute video message posted on social media where Joe and Jill alternated saying what they’re thankful for.

Their message was about being together as a family again after last year’s Thanksgiving was derailed by the pandemic.

“After being apart last year, we have a new appreciation for those little moments we can’t plan or replicate,” Jill Biden said. “The music of laughter in a warm, full kitchen. The thump of small feet making big sounds. The circle of faces crowded around our dining room table, glowing in the candlelight.”

The president went on to thank the troops and their families.

“As we give thanks for what we have, we also keep in our hearts those who we lost and those who have lost so much,” Joe Biden said.

“And those who have an empty seat at their kitchen table or dining room table this year because of this virus or cruel twist of fate or accident. We pray for them.”
