Chris Cillizza faced backlash after claiming President Biden never suggested workers in one profession could change jobs by learning to code.

The dispute arose from recent media layoffs, with a press secretary’s response triggering Cillizza’s criticism.

DeSantis’ Press Secretary Jeremy Redfern wrote, “The LA Times is not having a good day, and I’m at peace with that.”

Cillizza wrote, “Will never get people who celebrate when other humans — with families, mortgages, medical bills etc — lose their jobs.”

“Journalists did this with the coal miners so cry harder,” commented a user.

“They didn’t though. At all. Biden said it (and he didn’t even say ‘learn to code.’ Like, facts matter,” Cillizza responded.

“Kind of like journalists cheering people getting laid off over COVID shots. Zero sympathy here,” commenter another user.

“The journalists now need to hustle and get real jobs. Hey, maybe learn to code. Enjoy,” they continued.

“It just didn’t happen. And, again, no journalist said ‘learn to code.’ And neither did Biden,” wrote Cillizza.

Cillizza’s stance prompted a Community Note linking to a 2019 article where Biden suggested miners could learn to program.

Community Notes added, “Then candidate Joe Biden, during a campaign rally in Derry, NH in 2019 stated, ‘Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well,’ in a policy proposal to move away from fossil fuels,” the Note read.

The exchange highlighted differing interpretations of Biden’s statement and its implications for workers in transitioning industries.
