After criticizing Republicans in his remarks on Thursday after the release of the September inflation report, President Biden received harsh criticism.
In Los Angeles, Biden made an appearance to discuss the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and its effect on voters. His remarks followed the release of a fresh Consumer Price Index report that showed inflation increased by 8.2% in September compared to the same month the previous year, exceeding earlier projections.
Biden was more upbeat about the news, but he also took the time to charge Republicans with wanting to worsen inflation should they win back control of Congress in 2022.
“But the reports from today indicate some development. Over the past three months, the overall rate of inflation was 2%. From the previous three months, 11% less, that is. That is progress, but a significant portion of it has been made possible by nationwide gas pump prices falling by more than $1, now even in California “added Biden.
WHERE IS THE EMPATHY, DAVID ASMAN RAINS BIDEN ADMINS FOR HANDLING INFLATION AS FOOD PRICES INCREASE 11%?
Added he, “Inflation will increase if Republicans win. It’s that easy.”
Twitter users criticized Biden’s remarks for trying to place the responsibility on Republicans while ignoring the effects of higher-than-expected inflation rates.
“He is unaware of the current state of inflation. He simply speaks what is given to him to say “Stephen Miller, a contributing editor for The Spectators, tweeted.
“Where is this person from? Lordy, what a mess he is. merely imagines things and believes that everyone else does, “Paul Zeise, a radio personality, stated.
Conservative commentator Chad Felix Greene described him as “like a cartoon depiction of a laughably crooked politician.”
Jim Geraghty, senior political correspondent for National Review, tweeted that the message was “very bad” on a day when inflation was 8.2 percent compared to the previous year.
“And he’s going to say this after witnessing inflation grow almost every month of his presidency to the worst levels in 40 years due to party-line policies, which, he reminds us, every single Republican voted against? Pathetic, “Matt Whitlock, a Republican communicator, wrote.
President of The Lafayette Co. Ellen Carmichael tweeted, “Freaking sick, guy.”
“It seems as though Grandpa Dementia is endangering the populace. Vote Democratic or he will ruin the economy “Erick Erickson, a radio presenter, wrote.
“They are building the basis for a GOP victory in 2022 because they realize that this administration has done far too much damage for them to undo in that timeframe (especially with Biden still in the White House). The 2024 story already has it written in: “See? Nothing improved after the midterm elections, when Republicans won “The Daily Wire’s Virginia Kruta made a prediction.
“Ah, absolutely. Biden can then shift the blame to someone else when Republicans presumably win the November elections and inflation inevitably continues to skyrocket “Ben Kew, the chief editor of El American, concurred.
Blasted for bragging about social security increases brought on by high inflation rates was the White House chief of staff.
Republicans harshly slammed Biden over the most recent inflation data given his track record of playing down or fabricating news. Despite the reality that inflation had increased by 8.5% since July of last year, Biden stated in August that it had reached “zero percent” in July. Additionally, when the inflation rate barely hit 6.8% in December, Biden asserted that inflation had peaked.
