Joe Biden, eating his ice cream cone in Portland: "Our economy is strong as hell"

Joe Biden is facing the wrath of conservatives online after he was caught on camera telling a reporter in Portland that the 'economy is strong as hell' - while licking away at a Baskin Robbins ice cream cone.

The president appeared unbothered by the country's 8.2 percent inflation rate and warnings of a looming recession as he was asked about the US' financial situation in an Oregon ice cream parlor Saturday.

Questioned if he had any worry about the strength of the US dollar amid rising inflation, the president, with a chocolate chip cone in hand, flippantly replied: 'I'm not concerned about the strength of the dollar. I'm concerned about the rest of the world. Our economy is strong as hell.'
