After the financial stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, soaring gas prices, and now inflation, Americans are demanding answers from the Democrats and the Biden administration. Given the history Joe Biden has had with stages and podiums, many were watching yesterday as Amtrak Joe tried his best to explain the inflation crisis and how his administration is doing everything within its power to fix it. At the same time, Biden was sure to blame the Republicans for all the problems facing America. The only problem, Democrats have controlled D.C. for almost two years. Still, when not blaming the GOP, it seemed Biden resorted to claiming people were just too simple to understand.
For those who might not remember, it was President Biden who has constantly forgotten who the President was, shook hands with a ghost, claimed his house had once burned down, and even tripped trying to board Air Force One. But apparently, that doesn’t matter as in the video below, he stated, “All they’re focused on understandably, is the problem they’re facing. They get a five-and-a-half percent raise and average raise in their salaries and yet, inflation exceeds that. And they look around the world, and they know that a lot of it’s extremely complicated. And so they’re frustrated and I don’t blame them. I really don’t blame them. There’s a lot we have to do. I think what I have to do is explain in simple, straightforward language, what’s going on – like the reason why 30% of the inflation last year is because automobiles cost more. Why do they cost more, they couldn’t get the computer chips to make them.”
While the President believed that the troubles facing America and the world were too complex for the average citizen, during the same speech, he said, “And I agree with what Chairman Powell said last week that the number one threat is the strength… in that strength… that we built… is inflation.” That might sound confusing, but that is exactly what President Biden said. Take a look.
Astonished by his speech, Senator Josh Hawley tweeted only two words, “My goodness.” Other users online had a little bit more to say. Comments included:
- “#DementedJoe stumbled through his teleprompter speech on the Economy today. You can tell he didn’t write one word of it. #Biden is #Senile and #Incompetent and blames everyone else for his #Failed Policies. Biden has taken a knee before #TheSquad over the #AmericanPeople.”
- “Okay, this man on his best days has been nothing but problematic with one asinine policy after another. Now, with obvious diminished faculties, not only is he not very smart, he’s literally dangerous! #DemocratsAreADisaster #ImpeachBiden“
- “I’ve struggled with English as a second language… but I swear this guy is too morally, intellectually and physically UNFIT to serve! #FJB“
