During Tuesday evening's State of the Union address, President Joe Biden said something a socialist pretending to be a capitalist would say to throw people off their far-left scent.

No irony here at all.

But there's so much more to do. We gotta finish the job. We pay for these investments in our future by finally making the wealthiest and biggest corporations begin to pay their fair share. [Applause and Jeers] Just begin. Look, I'm a capitalist. I'm a capitalist, but pay your fair share. I think a lot of you at home, a lot of you at home agree with me and many people that you know that tax system is not fair.

Maybe he repeated that he's a capitalist to persuade himself? And yes, the tax system isn't fair, so then you should stop manipulating it to punish the lower and middle classes.
