After he posted a tweet Sunday night accusing Republicans of being to blame for the nation’s economic woes, President Biden immediately came under fire.
“Republicans are doing nothing but obstructing our efforts to crack down on gas-price gouging, lower food prices, lower healthcare costs, and hopefully, soon, lower your prescription drug costs,” the POTUS tweeted.
Republicans in Congress and conservative media attacked the assertion as Americans continue to be hit hard by high gas and grocery prices due to rising inflation rates.
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) responded on Twitter by saying that Joe Biden thinks the American people are stupid.
Biden is using Republicans as a scapegoat for the nation’s issues, according to economist Brian Riedl.
Former George W. Bush White House employee and CNN commentator Scott Jennings referred to the president’s comments as nonsense.
He tweeted, “88% wrong track + 38% approval = good f’ing lick with this BS.”
Another media analyst pointed out that Biden had earlier blamed inflation on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Huh? The presenter of a sports talk radio show, Mark Zinno, tweeted, “I believed Russia was to blame.
Given a 2020 tweet Biden sent while running for office, several Twitter users criticized the comment for being hypocritical.
Regarding then-President Donald Trump, Biden stated, “It’s hard to believe that it has to be said, but unlike this president, I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others.”
Many economic analysts believe that a recession is imminent since inflation is at a level that hasn’t been seen in forty years.
