Our friend Maggie takes on Bidenflation today. Someone needs to, and fast …
Remember when Biden paid $14 for an ice cream? I’m just gunna leave that right there.

Better Rain Man should stick to counting the chocolate chips in his ‘chocolate chocolate-chip’ ice cream. Bidenflation …
Biden will move to flip the inflation argument on its head – noting the increase in the economy’s capacity driven by his plans would help to decrease prices over time.
It’s a point his team has made – now Biden himself will do so in remarks today: https://t.co/hjtSmQAZvW

Evolution of the WH comms strategy:
There is no inflation –>
Inflation will go away soon –>
You saved 16 cents on hot dogs! –>
Actually inflation is a good thing https://t.co/URTQlRUn5t

I said “Weimar America” yesterday and had to explain it to a few people. I should have waited until today and simply showed them Biden’s statement re: inflation.

Well, thankfully that we’ve moved to pretty much a cashless society, we at least won’t need wheelbarrows to pick up our paychecks.

Jon Dougherty: ‘Bidenflation’ — The next thing big tech censors. They’ve already started. … Pay no attention to the price/gal. at the pump. Or your gas/electric utility bills. Or the cost of your groceries. Or the price of tech items/TVs/cars/appliances/durable goods/clothing/medicine. Zuck and Jihad Jack will ease your stress by censoring that evil ‘factual’ economic news.
Twitchy: OUCH! President Biden apparently does not think Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is a ‘serious economist’ … I’m no Yellen fan, but, holy shit!
Biden, taking media questions on inflation fears:
“There’s nobody suggesting there’s unchecked inflation on the way, no serious economist. That’s totally different. I mean, look, the stock market is higher than it has been in all of history, even when it went down this month.”

Just like FaceBook “is killing people”.
John Carney: Inflation Nation: Consumer Prices Surged Much Higher Than Expected in June: Consumer prices surged by much more than expected in June. The Consumer Price Index rose 5.4 percent compared with a year ago, the Department of Labor said Thursday. On a monthly basis, the CPI rose 0.9 percent—nearly twice as much as expected…
“Prices are going up now so that they can go down later”

You have two options:
1. Biden is senile.
2. Biden is saying his treasury secretary is not a serious economist.
— The Partyman (@PartymanRandy) July 19, 2021
It’s false to assume these are the only two choices.
3. Biden is lying.
4. Biden is an idiot.
5. Biden is a very smart person in complete control of his mental faculties who has no idea what he is talking about, but believes it 100%.

God, help us.
Nearly 90% of Americans are worried about the hidden tax of inflation.
And what’s Biden’s plan? Spend trillions more to drive inflation even higher.
— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) July 19, 2021
Megan Henney: Biden insists massive government spending will tamp down inflation: Biden: White House doing ‘everything we can’ to combat inflation … It’s like saying, “We’ll treat Uncle Joe’s alcohol addiction by pouring trillions of gallons of liquor into him”. Yeah, ruin and death is a great cure.
Biden has his work cut out for him convincing people *Bidenflation* is someone else’s fault.
71% believe Biden’s spending could lead to inflation

Pretty soon your wallet and purses can be cut up and used to patch yours and your family’s holes in their worn out shoes because, like “back in the day”, people didn’t have the money to replace things … they had to fix and rig them, and at times to unsafe results.
Chris Talgo: June inflation report should put Americans on edge
Christian Datoc: Do economists think ‘Bidenflation’ will last? Depends on who you ask … The undeniable problem is the ones who have strong common sense are the ones the MSM and the DC Swamp don’t listen to. The ones that get gravitas are the ones pining for socialism with the federal government ‘paying for’ (you understand precisely the meaning of that) just about everything.
John Steele Gordon: Why we’re on the path to a ’70s-like inflation disaster
I & I Ed. Board: The Dreaded Misery Index Is On The Rise Under Biden
Twitchy: Joe Biden attempts to explain what he ackshually meant when he said that Facebook is ‘killing people’ with misinformation … And the MSM accepts his bullshit once again.
Biden attempts to unwind his assertion on Friday: “Facebook isn’t killing people. . . my hope – is that they would do something about the misinformation. . . that’s what I meant.”

We saw it. You can’t help him by cutting out his SHORT comment like you edited Trump’s “very fine people”
