You know it’s bad for Democrats when CNN calls them out.
That is exactly what happened to Joe Biden.
And CNN dropped the hammer on Joe Biden for this reason that no one saw coming.
The latest inflation report showed prices skyrocket 7.9 percent, the largest year-over-year increase in 40 years.
The Biden administration sought to deflect blame from this disaster by falsely claiming it was the result of Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine dubbing it the “Putin price hike.”
But now even the Biden administration’s reliable allies in the corporate media couldn’t stomach amplifying that Big Lie.
It was CNN – of all places – that debunked Biden’s falsehood noting that this inflation report was from January and did not take into account the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“Inflation is accelerating, these are pre-war numbers as well,” CNN’s Chief Business Correspondent Christine Romans told viewers. “Many people had thought we’d see a peak in inflation in March maybe, well now we have a war in Russia, not captured — war in Ukraine — not captured here.”
Romans added that “inflation is accelerating” and did not just occur out of nowhere due to Putin’s invasion. “All these things you basically can’t live without are rising here,” Romans explained pointing to the rising costs of goods across the economy. “You can see just why so many Americans are so sour on the economy…because they’re paying more for just about everything.”
Just to drive the point home, Romans doubled down on the fact that this report did not include any repercussions from Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
“And again,” Romans concluded stating that “these numbers don’t capture the big disruption in the economy from Putin’s war in Ukraine.”
Inflation was already out of control thanks to Joe Biden’s socialist spending spree and anti-energy policies.
Inflation was hitting 40-year highs before Putin began amassing troops on the Ukrainian border.
Gas prices already increased more than one dollar per gallon before the Russian invasion thanks to Joe Biden purposefully trying to choke off the supply of American oil and natural gas as part of a Green New Deal agenda.
Biden wants high gas prices.
Skyrocketing gas prices are the only way Biden can force the American people to buy into his so-called “climate change” malarky and move to more expensive and less reliable wind and solar sources of energy.
Biden just capitalized on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to put in place the policies he always intended to implement.
That’s why one of Biden’s economic advisors said the real solution to energy independence is zero fossil fuels.
However, Biden does not have the corporate media providing him relentless air cover now that his approval ratings are still in the low 40s and few think he will run for re-election.
Democrats will likely be on the search for a new candidate in 2024 and it benefits the party if the media blames everything – crime, the border, inflation, and high gas prices – on Joe Biden so it gives the new nominee a clean slate to run on against the GOP candidate.
