Biden Responds to Record Inflation with a Whopper About His Priorities

President Joe Biden issued a statement Friday in response to inflation hitting a record 40-year high at an increase of 8.6 percent.

“Today’s report underscores why I have made fighting inflation my top economic priority. While it is good to see critical ‘core’ inflation moderating, it is not coming down as sharply and as quickly as we must see. Putin’s Price Hike hit hard in May here and around the world: high gas prices at the pump, energy, and food prices accounted for around half of the monthly price increases,” Biden said. “My Administration will continue to do everything we can to lower prices for the American people.”

But Biden hasn’t made inflation his top economic priority. For months, his administration denied inflation was happening, saying it wouldn’t be an issue, before calling it temporary and transitory last summer.

Russian President Vladimir Putin didn’t invade Ukraine until January 2022.

Instead, Biden has been pushing for Congress to pass even more inflationary federal government spending with his $6 trillion Build Back Better agenda. It’s also incorrect to say core inflation is moderating. He repeated that claim during a speech in California Friday afternoon.

Further, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen just admitted she was wrong about inflation and that she now expects prices to continue their exponential climb.

    Really? So gas prices are up. Food prices are up. Shelves are empty in the stores. But it’s a priority to who? Only to the people that are searching for what they need to get meals on the table. And trying not to use the car too much because of gas prices. How about the baby formula problem? Only the US is affected. Strange. If we don’t get the traitors un the democrap party out of office, our country will be gone.

    Causing inflation has been Ol Joe’s top priority. And his performance has been stellar. Maybe we should make a dog or cat President? They’d probably be an improvement!

    He’s delusional and anybody that can’t see that he’s destroying our country is a moron. He hasn’t done one positive thing for this country yet although… maybe some people like all the equity he’s created while continuing the dumbing down of America.
